Jeanny Park, M.D., is a board certified pediatric cardiologist who sub-specializes in cardiac electrophysiology. She treats pediatric patients of all ages, from newborns to adults with congenital heart disease, who have problems with abnormal or irregular heart rhythms.
As the only pediatric cardiac electrophysiologist in the Sierra Sacramento region, she performs catheter ablations to eliminate certain fast heart rhythm problems and also implants pacemakers and defibrillators to treat patients at risk for sudden death secondary to heart rhythms that are either too slow or too fast.
