Dr Dhamrait manages patients with heart valve disease, with a biweekly NHS clinic, and has set up a multidisciplinary endocarditis team which manages patients with severe heart valve infections.  He also performs transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography and liaises closely through multidisciplinary meetings with cardiac radiology colleagues to offer a complete complex cardiac imaging programme through with MRI and CT.
