An interventional cardiologist, Dr. Wijeysundera has utilized large health administrative databases to evaluate the cost, benefits and outcomes associated with the use of heart-related health technologies. He has applied this approach to health technologies developed to treat coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation, and severe aortic stenosis, and his research findings have directly informed health policy decision-making and impacted clinical practice, in particular in the area of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) for the treatment of severe aortic stenosis. In 2020, he received a prestigious Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Structural Heart Disease Policy and Outcomes. He has also been appointed a Fellow of the American Heart Association. He has recently been appointed Head of the Division of Cardiology and Director of the Schulich Cardiovascular Program at Sunnybrook.
