Dr Shazia Hussain

I am a Consultant Cardiologist experienced in all aspects of adult Cardiology specialising in Coronary intervention ie Diagnostic Coronary Angiography and Angioplasty (stent insertion).
I am experienced in all aspects of coronary intervention including complex angioplasty, physiological testing with FFR/IFR and coronary imaging including intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). Having also trained in perfusion CMR, I combine my practical expertise with experience of non-invasive ischaemia testing.
I was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at Glenfiield Hospital in 2017 after completing my training with a Cardiology Fellowship undertaken at Toronto General Hospital, Canada. Prior to this I had received my cardiology and interventional training at the world-renowned Papworth Hospital in Cambridge before being selected for the highly competitive BCIS interventional Fellowship in Toronto. During my training I also undertook a dedicated period of research culminating in a PhD from King’s College, University of London. This has resulted in a a number of peer-reviewed publications including as a main author on the MR-INFORM study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (2019).
