Dr Anjana Siva
MA BChir (Cantab) MRCP PhD
I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist in May 2007 and enjoy an extremely busy NHS practice in general cardiology. I am specialised in the diagnosis of valve disease, ischaemic heart disease (angina and heart attacks) and heart failure. My philosophy is that good communication is key to good medical care.
I studied medicine at Robinson College Cambridge, graduating with a First Class degree in medical sciences, then completing my clinical training at Addenbrookes Hospital Cambridge, graduating in 1991 with Honours in Medicine. My junior doctor years were spent in London Teaching Hospitals, most notably The Guys Hospital Intensive Care Unit and The Hammersmith Hospital Cardiology department upon which I based my decision to follow a career in cardiology. Cardiology Training in the South East was followed with a break for PhD research back in Cambridge. At King's College Hospital I spent five years completing my training, where I gained experience in complex echocardiography under Dr Mark Monaghan, a leading expert in the field.
I am now head of the large Queen Alexandra Hospital echo department and have lead educational roles for medical students, junior doctors and cardiac physiologists.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Anjana Siva at Spire include:
PhD in role of Homocysteine in Ischaemic Heart Disease, Cambridge University. 3 Dimensional echocardiography in heart failure and valve disease.

At home I enjoy my four children, two border collies and long suffering husband. I garden enthusiastically, if not always successfully, and in recent years I have taken up running, participating in regular half marathons and, of course, the Great South Run.
