Board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine for both Cardiovascular Disease and Cardiac Electrophysiology, Audrius Bredikis, MD, FACC, practices Cardiac Electrophysiology with the Health First Physicians Group and is a member of the Medical Staffs at Health First Cape Canaveral Hospital in Cocoa Beach, FL, and Health First Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, FL.

His professional interests include syncope and cardiac arrhythmias as well as ablation of supraventricular, ventricular tachycardias, and atrial fibrillation. His other areas of expertise include pacemaker and defibrillator implantation, programming, and laser extraction of infected, malfunctioning leads.

After graduating from Kaunas Medical University with distinction, Dr. Bredikis completed another five years of clinical training in Cardiac Surgery at Kaunas Medical University Hospital-the leading institution for arrhythmia surgery in Europe. During that time, along with clinical training, he completed his dissertation in experimental cryoablation and earned his Doctor of Sciences degree.

With the shift of arrhythmia surgery to less-invasive, transvenous treatment options, Dr. Bredikis did an additional seven years of training in Chicago, Illinois.

Dr. Bredikis is extensively published, with more than 60 publications/abstracts in the field of Cardiac Electrophysiology, and recently published his first textbook Cryoablation of Cardiac Arhythmias, which can be found online at www.ExpertConsult.com.

Before coming to Florida and joining the Health First Physicians Group, Dr. Bredikis held academic positions at Loyola University in Chicago and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, where he served as a Director of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program.

He has continued his interests in teaching, research, and also holds a position as Clinical Associate Professor with the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, Florida.
