A/Professor Andreas Pflaumer
Associate Professor Andreas Pflaumer is a Consultant Paediatric Cardiologist/Electrophysiologist with a sub-specialty interest in electrophysiology. He has an in-depth knowledge of invasive and non-invasive electrophysiology, 3D mapping systems and remote magnetic navigation.
After studying at the LMU in Munich/Germany he trained as a paediatrician and neonatologist in Munich. Andreas completed his sub-specialist training in cardiology in 2003. He completed his adult electrophysiology training at the German Heart Centre (TUM) Germany in 2006. He spent a further three and a half years as a consultant in paediatric cardiology and congenital heart disease. In 2009, Andreas moved to Australia to establish invasive electrophysiology within the RCH. Currently he is the Clinical Lead for invasive electrophysiology at the RCH
