Dr Bhamra-Ariza qualified from Guys and St Thomas’ in 2001 and undertook his specialist training in the South West London Cardiology training scheme. Prior to his appointment as the Interventional Fellow at St Georges Hospital, he was a research fellow at the MRC Clinical Science Centre at Hammersmith Hospital and was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine from Imperial College in 2012 for his work on myocardial blood flow measurement using cardiac MRI and positron emission tomography.
In 2013 he spent a year in Sydney working with Professor David Muller at St Vincents Hospital and gained further experience in complex interventional and structural cardiology. He was appointed as a full time substantive consultant at Frimley Health NHS trust in January 2015 and works across site at Frimley Park, Wexham Park and Heatherwood Hospitals.
Dr Bhamra-Ariza's main clinical interest is myocardial ischemia (a condition where blood flow to the heart is reduced) and it’s treatment with percutaneous coronary intervention. His specialist interest is complex coronary intervention including rotablation and chronic coronary artery occlusions. On a day to day basis he sees patients with a wide range of common heart problems including: chest pain, high blood pressure, heart failure, valvular heart disease, referrals for investigation of palpitations and collapse, cardiovascular risk assessment, and perioperative cardiac assessment.
Dr Bhamra-Ariza works closely with his anaesthetic colleagues in assessing patients deemed high risk prior to non cardiac surgery. Currently he takes part in the heart attack service at Wexham Park Hospital, which provides round the clock treatment for heart attack patients throughout South Buckinghamshire and East Berkshire.
He is the Cardiology Clinical lead for mortality and morbidity at Wexham Park Hospital and works closely with other members of the mortality review group to improve patient safety.
Dr Bhamra-Ariza is married to Hannah and has 2 small children (Joseph and Sebastian). He is an active musician and continues to play piano. He enjoys sports and plays golf as well as being a member of the local squash club.
