Dr Shahid Aziz
Consultant Interventional Cardiologist
MBChB, BSc (Hons), MRCP, MD
I work as a Consultant Cardiologist at North Bristol NHS Trust and the Bristol Heart Institute. I am a general cardiologist looking after patients with all types of heart conditions including hypertension, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease and heart failure.
My particular interest is the treatment of coronary artery disease with angioplasty and stents. I also undertake coronary angiography, pacemaker implantation and echocardiography.
My research interests include optimisation of angioplasty results and I have published several papers in the field of interventional and general cardiology. I have written a book, Understanding High Blood Pressure (publication date April 2015).
I have a leading role in medical teaching through Bristol University and also work for the General Medical Council as a member of the review panel for cardiology specialist registration.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Shahid Aziz at Spire include:
Spire Bristol Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
Consultant Interventional Cardiologist, North Bristol NHS Trust, Southmead Hospital (Bristol) and Bristol Heart Institute.
In my spare time I enjoy playing cricket and teaching my children tennis.
