Dr Waqas Ullah
Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist
BSc, MBBS, MRCP, PhD
"Excellent facilities and a great example of patient centered."
I have been a consultant cardiologist since 2016 and specialise in electrophysiology and the implantation and management of devices such as pacemakers. I have a particular interest in complex ablation, with my clinical PhD and subsequent research focusing on this. I was born in London and my medical training was in London and the South East, while my specialty training has been in several prestigious centres.
I specialise in simple and complex ablations, including in patients with adult congenital heart disease. I also implant and remove pacing devices (simple and complex). My specialist interests are Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia. I am a keen user of cutting edge technologies both for pacing and ablation, having published important papers evaluating new technologies with local, national and international groups.
I am lead for undergraduate cardiology training in University Hospital Southampton.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Waqas Ullah at Spire include:
