Dr Peter Henriksen
BSc, MB ChB, PhD, FRCP
I qualified in medicine from Edinburgh University in 1996. I commenced my clinical training in Edinburgh and London before being awarded a Wellcome Trust Clinical Training Fellowship leading to a PhD examining mechanisms of injury and repair in atherosclerosis - the cause of angina and heart attacks. I completed my cardiology training in Edinburgh with sub-specialty expertise in coronary intervention.
I was appointed as a consultant in 2008 working between the Western General Hospital and Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. I welcome referrals in all aspects of general cardiology including hypertension, chest pain, palpitations, heart failure and valvular heart disease.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Peter Henriksen at Spire include:
