About me

Dr. Shamil Yusuf undertook his undergraduate studies at the University of Manchester before moving onto Kings College Hospital, London for his post-graduate training. Following admission to the Royal College of Physicians by examination he was awarded a British Heart Foundation Junior Research Fellowship and moved to St. Georges Hospital Medical School, London, to undertake research into the various triggers and substrates responsible for one of the most common heart rhythm disturbance encountered in clinical practice, namely Atrial Fibrillation. Following award of his PhD, Dr. Yusuf undertook his training in general cardiology on the South Thames, Kent, Surrey, Sussex Specialist Registrar Rotation with appointments at St. Thomas and Kings College Hospitals before moving to Glenfield Hospital, Leicester in 2008. As a Clinical Fellow in Cardiac Electrophysiology at Glenfield Hospital Dr. Yusuf undertook almost 500 electrophysiology procedures and 200 device implantations over a two year period ranging from simple VT stimulation studies to the electrophysiological diagnosis and ablation of narrow complex tachycardias (atrial tachycardia; AVNRT; AVRT; type 1 typical atrial flutter) to more complex left atrial ablation procedures using fluoroscopic guided PVAC and 3-D geometry (Nav-X) guided techniques to treat drug refractory AF and ventricular tachycardia. To date Dr Yusuf has undertaken over 3000 electrophysiology studies and ablations of various heart rhythm disturbances with success rates of 94% and complication rate of <1% for standard ablation procedures and 1-2% for complex ablations.
Dr. Yusuf has considerable experience also in implanting of both simple (single and dual chamber pacemakers) and complex devices (ICD’s and bi-ventricular systems).
Dr Yusuf is Clinical Lead for Cardiology at the University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust and plays a key role in the provision of all aspects of cardiology services at this NHS trust including participation in various research projects.
Dr Yusuf lives with his wife and two daughters. His special interests include travelling, playing tennis and cricket.
