About me

I'm a consultant cardiologist at Guys and St Thomas' NHS Trust, based in central London. My main private practice is at the BUPA Cromwell Hospital in west London and The Heart Rhythm Clinic on Harley Street.
I specialise in the management of atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial tachycardias (AT). Atrial fibrillation is the commonest sustained arrhythmia and can lead to strokes, and commonly causes fatigue and lethargy, as well as shortness of breath, reduced exercise capacity and palpitations. It is characterised by an irregular and erratic pulse.

I treat patients with any disturbance of heart rhythm. Typical symptoms of arrhythmia can include palpitations, but patients often feel as if the heart is beating very rapidly, or in some cases stopping. Other symptoms which may be due to heart rhythm problems include tiredness, pain in the throat, shortness of breath and collapses or faints.

I have published over 100 peer reviewed papers and over 20 reviews and book chapters, and I am a fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society, as well as being a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, and the European Heart Rhythm Association. My research interest is in improving the outcomes of patients having AF ablation, in particular the role of real-time lesion visualisation. I regularly give lectures at international meetings as well as perform televised ablations to teach other physicians.
