Dr Manav Sohal
Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist
MB BS, MRCP, EHRA Advanced EP Cert.
I am a Consultant Cardiologist with a specialist interest in heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias). I am based at St George’s Hospital, which serves as the regional referral unit for South West London and Surrey and have one of the busiest clinical practices in the region.
I assess and treat patients with both general cardiology complaints and symptoms attributable to heart rhythm disturbances. I am fully trained in the medical and interventional treatment of arrhythmias and have a specific interest in complex ablation and pacemaker/defibrillator implantation. I am one of the few UK cardiologists who hold the European Heart Rhythm Society Advanced Electrophysiology Certification.
I have performed over 1,000 ablations and 1,000 pacing procedures. I am one of the few cardiologists in the region routinely performing pacing system extractions.
I completed general cardiology training in some of the busiest hospitals in London and the South Coast before pursuing sub-specialist training in electrophysiology and pacing in Brighton and St Thomas’ Hospital in London. I was awarded a prestigious European fellowship to train in Belgium and this provided outstanding exposure to novel interventional techniques for managing both simple and complex heart rhythm disorders.
In addition to my clinical work, I have an active research profile. I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer at St George's University, London.
I am committed to delivering the highest standard of care and aim to empower patients to make informed choices for their treatment. I place the patient at the forefront of my efforts and work with patients and general practitioners to achieve the best possible outcomes.

I am father to two young boys and spend much of my free time working out how they continually run rings around me! As a family we enjoy exploring the great outdoors on two wheels and any 'me time' is spent pursuing my passion for running.
