I am a cardiologist who trained initially in Leeds and moved to the South coast in 1994. I have worked in the Wessex Cardiac Unit since 1996. For two years I worked in a number of US centres where I completed my research for my medical doctorate (MD) thesis. I am interested in all aspects of cardiology including coronary artery disease, cardiac catheterisation, echocardiography and cardiovascular health screening.
My main sub-specialty interest in cardiology is cardiac rhythm management (electrophysiology). I perform all aspects of invasive and non-invasive electrophysiology. This includes radiofrequency catheter ablation and the implantation of devices such as pacemakers, implantable defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronisation devices for heart failure.
The Heart Rhythm Clinic is a group of three consultants based at Spire Southampton Hospital providing a full range of cardiology consultation services, non-invasive services including echocardiography, rhythm monitoring, 24hr ECG and blood-pressure monitoring, exercise testing and full inpatient investigations. Our range of invasive diagnostic and therapeutics include cardiac catheterisation, coronary angiography, electrophysiology and cardiac stroke prevention services.
