Dr Ali Dana
BSc. (Hons), MBBS, PhD, MRCP
I trained at University College Hospital, London. My cardiology training was in the South East Thames region, primarily at St Thomas' and King's College Hospitals, London. I completed my PhD in Ischaemic Preconditioning and Myocardial Protection at University College Hospital, London (with a British Heart Foundation Research Fellowship) and have published widely in this area.
As part of my interventional training, I spent a one-year fellowship in Quebec, Canada, training in complex angioplasty via the trans-radial (wrist) approach. I was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust in 2012.
I specialise in radial (wrist) coronary intervention (angioplasty / stenting) and structural cardiac intervention.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Ali Dana at Spire include:

Outside work I spend most of my time with my family, particularly with my two young children. I have a keen interest in tennis, kiteboarding and painting.
