CARDIOLOGY SERVICES

CARDIOLOGY CONSULTATIONS

I offers consultations on all aspects of general cardiology. I will spend time with  to you to find out about your cardiac health. I will guide you through any recommended tests and explain the findings from these tests. I will help you to understand any diagnosis and the latest available treatments and answer any questions you may have. I work closely with leading experts in the other specialities within cardiology including cardiac imaging, coronary intervention (to treat narrows to the coronary arteries), inherited cardiac conditions and cardiac surgeons.

CARDIOLOGY PROCEDURES

I am an expert at implanting pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators. I implant all types of pacemakers including including single chamber, dual chamber, leadless and biventricular pacemakers. I implant both transvenous and subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators. I regularly train other specialists in pacemaker implantation techniques both in the UK and internationally.
I am also experienced in pacemaker lead extraction and am clinical lead for the lead the extraction service at Imperial College NHS Trust.
I am a specialist in treating heart rhythm disturbances and perform catheter ablation to treat arrhythmias (which can cause palpitations). This includes treating atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia, accessory pathways, AVNRT and ventricular tachycardia.

CARDIAC INVESTIGATIONS

I can arrange a full range of cardiac investigations including echocardiograms, ECG monitoring, exercise testing, heart MRI scans and heart CT scans to help inform your diagnosis and treatment.
