I am a consultant cardiologist at Lancashire Cardiac Centre, Blackpool Victoria hospital. I was trained form treating ischemic heart disease and valvular heart disease. I have extensive experience in advanced percutaneous coronary intervention in the United Kingdom. I perform a wide variety of percutaneous coronary interventions with state-of- the art technologies to optimize the results and achieve the best outcomes for my patients. These include balloon angioplasty, stent implantation, rotational atherectomy, shockwave balloon lithotripsy, advanced intracoronary imaging with OCT / IVUS, and intracoronary physiology with microvascular assessment using FFR, iFR, CFR, IMR.
I have experience as well in implanting new heart valve ( aortic valve) via the catheters as an alternative to or in case of high risk open heart surgery.
I was awarded master of science and PhD degrees in cardiology, 2010 and 2014 respectively. I have an extensive publication record with more than 30 scientific papers in high impact journals as well as ample abstract presentations worldwide. I have performed a large number of scientific presentations at national and international levels. I am currently the lead for audits and quality improvement projects at the cardiology department in Blackpool Victoria hospital.
I am particularly specialized and well recognized in Lancashire cardiac Centre for performing high risk and complex coronary interventions such as those who are not surgical candidates, failed previous surgery, chronic total occlusion, and challenging coronary anatomy. I am one of few operators who are well trained for performing simple and complex coronary interventions without using any contrast throughout the procedure to minimize the risk of kidney damage for those with impaired kidney function.
I am the highest volume operator for performing simple and advanced/complex coronary intervention at Lancashire Cardiac Centre.
