Dr. Benjamin Jenny is Board Certified in Cardiovascular Disease and Internal Medicine. He completed his Cardiac Electrophysiology and Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship at the Texas Heart Institute in Houston, Texas.  During that time, he also concurrently earned a Master of Business Administration from Brandeis University. He completed his Internal Medicine Internship and Residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas after graduating with a  Doctor of Medicine Degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Dr. Jenny specializes in ablation of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. He also has expertise in cardiac implantable electronic devices and implants pacemakers, defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization devices as well as the Watchman left atrial appendage occlusion device.  He has extensive experience in fluoroless catheter ablation of arrhythmias which prevents patients from experiencing harmful radiation during many of his ablation procedures.

Dr. Jenny believes in shared, cost effective decision making when it comes to management of his patients, and that both patients and physicians must work together to reach the desired goal.
