Some of the principal treatments carried out by Professor Zaheer Yousef at Spire include:
I am the clinical lead for heart failure, cardiomyopathies, and heart failure devices (biventricular pacemakers and defibrillators) at the University Hospital of Wales.
I've implanted over 1,000 heart failure devices and am a European Society of Cardiology proctor for these procedures. I lead an active research group and serve as the UK Chief investigator of several International clinical trials. I was also appointed as a National Institute of Social Care and Health Research (NISCHR) fellow in 2011.
I have published more than 50 high impact medical papers and contributed to several chapters in medical textbooks.
I'm currently approved by the Football Association for cardiac screening of elite athletes.

In my spare time I have recently completed a major renovation of a Victorian property and am involved in several charities. I chair the Heart Research, Wales charity which aims to promote education and research in Wales and annually undertakes missions to Africa to help develop heart failure and pacing facilities in poorer countries (Pace4Life charity). I am a devoted father to my two children, and sadly, sporting activities these days are restricted to spectatorship and serving as a cardiologist for local football and rugby clubs.Back to top
