I am a consultant cardiologist based at Good Hope Hospital and Heartlands Hospital. I also provide community clinics at Samuel Johnson Hospital in Lichfield. I am proficient in all aspects of general cardiology; interpret heart tracings (ECG) including ambulatory heart tracings, 24-hour BP recording, undertake echocardiogram (ultrasound scan) and exercise stress test (treadmill).
My area of sub-speciality interest is interventional cardiology (placing stents in heart arteries) in both stable and un-stable settings. I have undertaken over 1500 angioplasties since 2014 and have also trained several trainee cardiologists. I also undertake complex high-risk interventional heart procedure especially chronically blocked arteries and lead the service heartlands. I have collaboration with Japan and regularly undertake workshop at Heartlands where we undertake complex heart procedures.
I am also the research lead at Heartlands hospital and undertake several research projects to improve patient care. I also regularly arrange several academic activities regionally and nationally. I also have interest in sports cardiology having had MD (Doctorate in Medicine) from King’s College Hospital, London on Athlete’s heart. I have assessed over 3000 athletes by performing ECG and echocardiogram with the help of cardiac risk in the young (CRY) who supported my research between 2005-2007.
To-date, I have performed over 2500 angioplasties (over 1500 as a consultant cardiologist). I do around 300 angioplasties annually of which 150 cases are comlpex heart procedures.
