Dr Huw Griffiths

Consultant Cardiologist

BSc, MB BS (Hons), MRCP, MD

Specialises in

I treat patients with every kind of heart and cardiovascular disease and patients with angina who require angioplasty.

I have wide experience in the management of all aspects of cardiology including angina, hypertension, heart failure, assessment of murmurs, arrhythmias, pacemakers and syncope.

My training in cardiology took place in London at St Mary's Hospital, Hillingdon Hospital and the Royal Brompton. This offered me unique opportunities to work in the Peart-Rose Hypertension Clinic at St Mary's, the Jane Somerville grown-up congenital heart disease unit and the Derek Gibson echo unit, each at the Brompton.

In 1998, the British Heart Foundation awarded me a major research grant to work in the heart failure research unit of the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College. This led to a number of research publications and an MD degree in 2002.

It was at the Brompton that I developed my interest in angioplasty. I trained under Professor Ulrich Sigwart who developed coronary stents. As an interventional fellow at the Brompton, I performed research into the emerging technology of drug eluting stents. I was awarded a certificate of completion of specialist training in 2002.
