Alap Shah, MD

Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology
Dr. Alap Shah is a board-certified, fellowship-trained cardiologist specializing in electrophysiology with the Kansas City Heart Rhythm Institute of the Heart and Vascular Institute at HCA Midwest Health. Dr. Shah is affiliated with the HCA Midwest Health network of hospitals located throughout the Kansas City, Mo. and Overland Park, Kan. metro areas.

With more than 10 years of experience, Dr. Shah has specialized clinical expertise and interests in electrophysiology, complex arrhythmia management, heart ablation, pacemaker and other device implantation and management. Over the past five years he has established a successful comprehensive electrophysiology program, including all aspects of cardiac device implantation and explanation, simple and complex ablations (atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia) and a left atrial appendage closure program.

Dr. Shah has a specific interest in treating patients with atrial fibrillation where his goals are to advance patient knowledge and improve quality of life for these patients. He is one a select group of electrophysiologists across the country able to perform catheter ablations safely and effectively with minimal or no radiation exposure to patients.

Dr. Shah is a former instructor of medicine at the University of Colorado Health Science Center. He has published numerous articles and abstracts in his specialty, and presented to colleagues at venues including the Kansas American College of Cardiology’s annual symposium and the Kansas City Heart Rhythm Symposium. Dr. Shah is a diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine, a member of the Heart Rhythm Society and a governing council member of the Kansas America College of Cardiology.
