About Nicholas Von Bergen, MD

Nick Von Bergen is a full time Professor of Pediatrics in Pediatric Cardiac Electrophysiologist at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. He is an internationally recognized specialist with an interest in advancing the field of cardiac rhythm management through development of innovation and advancement of procedural techniques and therapies. He is certified in both pediatric electrophysiology and in the care of adults with congenital heart disease. Dr. Von Bergen has performed procedural outreach and mentorship in seven US states and has demonstrated radiation limited and radiation free procedures in three countries. He continues to be active with the Pediatric and Adult Congenital Electrophysiology Society.

Dr. Von Bergen’s research has centered around the development, assessment and dissemination of more accurate techniques and new technology. He was an early adopter and pioneer in radiation free electrophysiology procedures and had been instrumental in the development and assessment of mapping techniques for rhythms such as Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry Tachycardia. He continues to work towards the development of widely accessible tools for more accurate treatment and rhythm assessment.

Dr. Von Bergen is also a co-founder of Atrility Medical and an inventor of the AtriAmp. The AtriAmp is one of the few advancements in post-operative rhythm management through providing continuous, real-time atrial electrogram monitoring after heart surgery. A relatively new technology, the AtriAmp has already become the standard of care for post-operative rhythm assessment at some pediatric institutions. In addition to fostering research collaborations, Dr. Von Bergen, with Atrility Medical, has worked closely with academic centers for further innovation, technology transfer and intellectual property protection.
