"Spire Healthcare provides excellent facilities and their cohesive team based approach with particular focus on patient centric care is why I chose to work here."
I am an experienced Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals with a specialist interest in the management of patients with abnormal heart rhythms. I regularly treat patients with cardiac problems and symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness, blackouts, chest pain, shortness of breath, family history of cardiac disease, high blood pressure and heart murmurs.
I provide a full range of diagnostic investigations to assess heart rhythm abnormalities including ectopic (extra) beats, bradycardias, supraventricular tachycardias, atrial fibrillation and ventricular arryhtmias. I also provide interventional treatments including catheter ablation, insertion of pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy. I have a particular interest in catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation.
I have performed over 1,000 catheter ablation procedures and device implantations as a Consultant Cardiologist.
I pride myself in effective communication with patients taking time to explain tests and treatments, and ensuring that patients are fully informed and involved in all aspects of their care. I use my expertise to provide a rapid diagnosis of your cardiac symptoms and work with you to devise a personalised treatment plan that you are comfortable with and at the highest standard of care.
I am Chair of Education for the national British Cardiovascular Society. I am Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London and am very active in clinical research in cardiac arryhtmias.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Shouvik Halder at Spire include:
