About me

Ali Dana has been a Consultant Cardiologist in Portsmouth since January 2010. His specialist area of interest is coronary intervention. He has an interest in complex coronary intervention including rotablation and treatment of chronic total occlusions, for both of which he has set up the service at Portsmouth. He has an interest in radial intervention and day case work. He also has an interest in structural heart disease and aortic balloon valvuloplasty. His other cardiology interests include general cardiology, echocardiography and permanent pacemaker implantation. Ali also has an interest in delivering cardiology services in the community and delivers cardiology clinics in GP practices in Gosport and Petersfield.

Ali qualified in 1992 from University College London. He did his intercalated BSc at The Middlesex Hospital Medical School in 1989. He did his house jobs and general professional training in London, obtaining his MRCP qualification in 1995. His specialist registrar training in Cardiology was on the SE Thames rotation from 2000 to 2007, when he obtained his certificate of completion of training.

Ali completed his sub-specialist training in intervention at two internationally renowned cardiac units, Kings College Hospital, London, and the Quebec Institute of Heart and Lung disease, Canada. He has experience of novel ways of doing day-case work, the development of heart attack services and experience with new interventional techniques.

Ali was awarded a BHF Research Fellowship in 1997. His PhD was undertaken at The Hatter Institute of Cardiology, University College London, and involved ischaemic preconditioning and protection of the ischaemic myocardium. He has published widely in the area and has written several book chapters.

Ali's current research interests include myocardial protection, evaluation of new intracoronary stents and devices, and the use of anti-thrombotic and lipid lowering drugs in patients with acute coronary syndrome.

He can see private patients at Spire Portsmouth Hospital. He does private angiograms, pacemakers and more complex coronary interventional procedures such as stents and PCI at Queen Alexandra Hospital.
