Dr Anthony W Nathan
MD, FRCP, FACC, FESC, FHRS
I have been a consultant cardiologist at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London where I worked for 30 years, and more recently at Watford General Hospitals. I am currently an honorary consultant at Watford General. My private office and secretary are based at Spire Bushey Hospital - where I consult.
I trained in clinical cardiology, specialising within interventional electrophysiology, having been involved in this sub-specialty since it started. I perform all forms of cardiac electrophysiological study including ablation of atrial, junctional and ventricular tachycardia. I perform implant and explant of pacemakers and implantable defibrillators including biventricular devices (cardiac resynchronisation therapy) for heart failure.
I have a major interest in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary disease and undertake all forms of cardiac catheterisation in adults including coronary angiography. I am fully involved in the care of patients with other cardiac problems including hypertension, cardiac failure and so on.
I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in London. I qualified from medical school at the Middlesex Hospital in London in 1975, obtaining my membership of the Royal College of Physicians two years later and Fellowship subsequent to that.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Anthony W Nathan at Spire include:
My major non-medical passion in life is sailing, which I do predominantly in Cornwall where we have a house. My wife and I are both keen walkers and travel extensively to far-flung locations. I take a keen and active interest in sport and am a season ticket holder at the Arsenal. I am also a keen skier, usually skiing more than once per year and I play golf, although I'm no expert.
I am interested in antiques, wine, ballet/contemporary dance, opera and theatre and regularly participate in or attend all of these. I have had a long standing interest in fast cars and have over the years owned a variety of different sports cars - a hobby which I continue.
