Professor Tom Wong received his undergraduate degree from University of Aberdeen. He completed the postgraduate fellowship in Electrophysiology and Pacing at St. Maryâ€™s Hospital, London in 2005. He was then appointed as the consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist at the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals in 2006 where he is the lead of the arrhythmia clinical services and research programmes of both hospitals since 2014. His career focused on seeking and providing the best care to patients with heart rhythm abnormalities.
Areas of interest
Professor Tom Wong specialised in treating patients with complex heart rhythm abnormalities in advanced disease states and complex cardiac anatomies, including heart rhythm disturbances originated from the atria and the ventricles in congenital, inherited and acquired heart disease.
â€¢ Catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation, atrial tachycardias and ventricular arrhythmias
â€¢ Catheter ablation and Device therapies in patients with congenital heart disease
â€¢ Pacemaker implantation and management, including conventional, CRT, conduction system pacing and leadless pacing.
â€¢ ICD implantation and management, including transvenous, trans-femoral, CRT and subcutaneous system.
â€¢ Extraction of pacing and ICD leads and systems
â€¢ Left atrial appendage closure

Head of Arrhythmia Clinical Services and Research Programs at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals
Professor Tom Wong's research program relates to his clinical interests to seek better understanding and treatment of arrhythmias in advanced disease states and complex cardiac anatomies.
He conducted ARC-HF clinical trial, first to show the beneficial effects of catheter ablation in cardiopulmonary performance compared to drug therapy in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation and heart failure. He published the cost impact of the left atrial appendage closure in stroke prevention based upon the UK cost model to inform the economic benefit, beyond the clinical needs, of this treatment to patient at risk of stroke. He completed NIHR funded, CASA-AF trial, which is the first to show that catheter-based ablation to treat longstanding persistent atrial fibrillation is as effective as surgical approach. In addition, his research group continues to investigate novel mapping, ablation, and device related technologies with an aim to improve clinical outcomes.
He received People of the Year Award from Association for Disability and Rehabilitation in 1995, Masterâ€™s Letter of Commendation from the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators in 1996, and Young Investigator Award from Heart Rhythm UK in 2005.
