Dr Peter O'Callaghan
Consultant Cardiologist and Heart Rhythm Specialist
MB, FRCP, FRCPI, FACC, CCDS
At Spire Cardiff Hospital I provide a comprehensive heart rhythm service including the investigation and management of patients with palpitations, blackouts and cardiac arrest survivors or their family members, management of atrial fibrillation, Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome, supraventricular tachycardias (SVTs), ablation of tachycardias and implantation of pacemakers, defibrillators and biventricular pacing systems.
I am the lead clinician for heart rhythm and pacing services at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, providing tertiary referral services for South East Wales, a referral population of 1.3 million.
Prior to my consultant appointment in 2001 I trained at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston and St George's Hospital, London having entered the speciality of electrophysiology in 1994. My main interests lie in curing ablatable tachycardias and implantation of devices to prevent blackouts or sudden death (pacemakers and defibrillators) or to treat heart failure (biventricular pacemakers).
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Peter O'Callaghan at Spire include:
Spire Cardiff 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.
