About me

I started my medical training in 1989 at the Friedrich Alexander University, Erlangen, Germany and did research from 1995 to 1997 resulting in a PhD degree (magna cum laude). I started working in the UK in 1997 as a junior doctor and acquired Membership of the Royal College of Physicians, London in 2000 (first pass, MRCP) and went on to become a Follow of the Royal College of Physicians, London (FRCP).

From 2000 to 2004 I undertook Cardiology Specialty Training at the University Hospital Maastricht, Holland under Prof Hein Wellens - an internationally recognised authority in cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmias.

I returned to the UK and completed my subspecialty training in interventional cardiology at Leeds General Infirmary the UK's busiest interventional centre followed by an international fellowship in interventional cardiology at the prestigious Pitie Salpetriere Hospital in Paris, France under Prof Gilles Montalescot. Thereafter I consolidated my interventional experience at the University Hospital Nijmegen, The Netherlands as one of three full time interventional cardiologists.

Since my arrival in Kent I took on the lead role for cardic research facilitation. I have so far been able to enrol in several international, multi-centre randomised controlled trials as Principal Investigator. All trials had a major impact and led to change in current cardiology practice.

I also perform/interpret cardiac CT and coronary calcium scoring and have helped to establish and extend the service for the East Kent patients.

I enjoy living in Kent with my wife and my two children. In my free time I love the outdoors. I like playing tennis and skiing, but my greatest joy is my family.
