About me

Dr Kamdar graduated from The Medical College of St Bartholomew's and the Royal London Hospitals in 1996 with Honours. He was appointed Consultant Cardiologist in 2009 and in 2012 he took up the post of Consultant Cardiologist in Devices, Arrhythmia and Heart Failure in a joint appointment between Croydon University Hospital and King’s College Hospital.
He has established a new successful complex cardiac pacemaker and defibrillator implantation and follow-up service at Croydon University Hospital (where none previously existed). This new service has been approved and accredited by NHS England. He has developed and built an effective team to significantly improve the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias and heart failure at Croydon University Hospital, for which he has received a Clinical Excellence Award and been nominated for Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians.
He is the highest volume implanter of complex cardiac pacemaker and defibrillator devices at King’s College Hospital.

He has considerable experience and expertise in simple and complex cardiac device implantation and their follow-up. He is accredited as a Certified Cardiac Devices Specialist from The International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE).
