Dr Dev Datta
Consultant in Metabolic Medicine
MB BCh, MD, FRCP, FRCPath, EuSpLM
I was appointed as a consultant in 2011. I have expertise in managing high cholesterol and other blood fats, other risk factors for heart disease and stroke such as hypertension or those with a strong family history of blood vessel disease. I have an interest in the evaluation of individuals who do not tolerate standard lipid-lowering therapies. I gained experience in medical weight management at the Imperial Weight Centre, London and established the NHS service in Cardiff for medical weight management in 2015. I have run a weight management service in Spire since 2013. I lead a clinical biochemistry and diagnostic medicine service which involves evaluation and treatment of a variety of metabolic conditions, such as problems related to calcium and sodium metabolism and vitamin deficiencies including vitamin D and hormones.
I am medical lead for the Wales Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Service and the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board Weight Management Service. I developed and am now course director for the MSc in Preventative Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of South Wales.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Dev Datta at Spire include:
Non surgical management of obesity
