Cardiologist specializing in heart rhythm problems.
I treat patients who have a wide range of presentations, such as palpitation, shortness of breath, or collapses. This includes clinical assessment and investigation as well as invasive procedures. As well as implanting pacemakers and performing ablation procedures, I have a particular interest in ablation treatments using 3D Mapping technologies. Please see my website for further information (www.nicklinton.org).
I am also part of the London Heart Practice, a collaboration of leading cardiologists (www.londonheartpractice.org).
Areas of interest
palpitation; chest pain; blackouts; syncope; pacemakers; arrhythmias; stroke prevention; atrial fibrillation (AF); supraventricular tachycardia (SVT); ventricular tachycardia (VT); implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD); subcutaneous implantable cardiac defibrillator (SICD); cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT);
