Professional profile

Dr Saha is a consultant cardiologist (Heart Specialist), who was appointed as a consultant in 2010. His practice encompasses work in the NHS at both Cheltenham General Hospital and Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, as well as private healthcare provision.

He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge University, St Bartholomew’s and the London Medical School, and the University of London for his PhD. His cardiology training included several years’ training at St Thomas’ Hospital, The London Chest Hospital, and the Royal Sussex Cardiac Centre, under the direct supervision of some of the most renowned cardiologists in the UK.

Dr Saha specialises in the investigation of: Chest pain, palpitations and shortness of breath from a cardiac perspective. Typical initial investigations include an ECG (electrocardiogram), echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) and heart rhythm recording, depending on symptoms.

Dr Saha also specialises in coronary angiography, complex coronary angioplasty and stent insertion to treat angina and heart attacks. This means a stent can be implanted at the time of the first angiogram, if necessary, without the need to return for a second procedure. Furthermore, he can perform coronary angiograms or angioplasty from either the wrist or the groin.

He has expertise in all aspects of general adult cardiology, but in particular, angina, acute coronary syndromes and heart valve disease. He also offers expertise on ECG interpretation, and initiated a regular ECG teaching programme for doctors in the Trust, particularly those working in the acute medical specialties. Dr Saha has lectured at both national and international levels and published widely on various aspects of heart disease. Dr Saha’s PhD was awarded by the University of London and funded by the British Heart Foundation.

Dr Saha continues to have an active interest in teaching, and has taught on the Guy’s Hospital MRCP course, as well as on other courses to help doctors with their professional training.
