In addition to the implantation of biventricular pacemakers and defibrillators (ICD) for the delivery of cardiac resynchronisation, Dr Jouhra is also an expert in arrhythmias, dizziness, anginas, heart murmurs and dilated cardiomyopathy. Using the latest technologies in his practice, Dr Jouhra provides comprehensive heart examinations and personalised treatment plans for every patient who needs care.
Dr Jouhra completed his specialist cardiology training at leading hospitals in London including King’s College, St Thomas’ and St George’s Hospitals. With a special interest in the cardio-oncology field, Dr Jouhra then worked as a clinical research fellow in breast oncology at St George’s Hospital before further developing his clinical experience during a heart failure fellowship at King’s College Hospital. Dr Jouhra is a member of European Heart Failure Association (HFA) Scientific Committee on Comorbidities - Study Group on Cardio-Oncology.
In his Visiting Professor position (in Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering), Dr Jouhra is currently working on project to enhance pacemakers performance.
