Dr Paul Rees trained at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College, and after a thorough grounding in acute medicine and critical care he was selected for higher professional training in adult cardiology. He is accredited as a consultant in both cardiology and internal medicine, with subspecialty training in interventional cardiology, treating heart disease using minimally-invasive stent procedures.
He worked for two years as Research Fellow at the world-leading Hatter Cardiovascular Institute and Centre for Cardiology, University College London, as part of Professor Derek Yellon’s team investigating how to save the heart from damage during a heart attack. He published his doctoral thesis entitled “Pharmacological cardioprotection of the human myocardium in diseased states” following his fellowship.
During his interventional cardiology fellowships he became skilled in the use of cutting-edge technology which allows the cardiologist to individually craft the right solution for each patient.
