Melissa H. Kong
Melissa grew up in Georgia and left the deep South for college, attending Princeton University where she graduated summa cum laude from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. She then moved to North Carolina, where she obtained her MD degree from Duke University. Duke proved hard to leave, and after medical school, she stayed at Duke for her internship and residency in internal medicine, her fellowship in cardiovascular disease, and her subspecialty fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology. During her fellowship she was an author on 17 peer reviewed articles. Melissa remains a Duke Blue Devil basketball fan. Melissa has expertise in both ablation and cardiac devices such as pacemakers and implanted defibrillators, but also treats patients with all varieties of cardiovascular problems. In addition, she has mastered the evaluation and treatment of peripheral venous disease, with venous ablation for those patients with venous insufficiency and peripheral edema and varicosities. Melissa and her husband reside with their son and twin girls in Redwood City.
