Virtual consultations:

I am a Consultant Cardiologist with a specialist interest in treatment of heart rhythm abnormalities, including atrial fibrillation, palpitations, ectopic beats, supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia. My specific area of expertise is catheter ablation procedures to treat heart rhythm abnormalities, particularly atrial fibrillation.

I am one of a select number of European heart rhythm specialists to have undertaken advanced specialisation at two of the highest profile centres in the world (the Harvard University-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and Hôpital Haut-Lévêque, Bordeaux, where the first curative ablation for atrial fibrillation worldwide was performed). The privilege of working alongside world-leading experts has given me an opportunity to train other UK consultants on advanced catheter ablation techniques.

My NHS practice is based at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, which is the largest specialist heart hospital in the UK. I am one of the highest volume operators for catheter ablation procedures in the North West of the UK.

I have published extensively on catheter ablation techniques. My research focuses on consistently improving outcomes of catheter ablation by using the latest technologies.
