Electrophysiology

Professor Mark O’Neill is a Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at St. Thomas’ Hospital London and Professor of Cardiac Electrophysiology at King’s College London. He qualified with first class honours from University College Dublin Medical School in 1998, having completed his DPhil in Cardiac Physiology as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University in 1995. He undertook subspecialty training in interventional cardiac electrophysiology at St Mary’s Hospital and in 2005  undertook a British Heart Foundation fellowship in the world-renowned arrhythmia centre in Bordeaux where he gained particular expertise in catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation. 

He joined St Thomas’ Hospital and King’s College London as a consultant in the Department of Cardiology and Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering in 2009. He was promoted to Reader in 2011 and Professor in 2013 and has since led the arrhythmia service, regional training programme and divisional research programme in cardiac electrophysiology. In 2016, in recognition of the quality and breadth of his clinical and academic work, he received a National Bronze Clinical Excellence award.

Professor O'Neill is an international opinion leader in cardiac electrophysiology, is actively involved in research and has published over 200 papers in peer-reviewed journals. His research addresses the mechanisms of atrial fibrillation and the use of novel mapping, imaging and computational modelling techniques to better understand the reasons why a patient develops AF and therefore how best to manage it. 

He lectures regularly in the UK and abroad on atrial arrhythmia management. He treats patients with simple and complex heart rhythm disturbances of atrial and ventricular origin, in particular atrial fibrillation and tachycardia in the context of inherited and acquired structural heart disease.

His private practice is based at The Heart Rhythm Clinic, 88 Harley Street. He performs interventional electrophysiology procedures at the Harley St Clinic.

In June 2018, the Daily Mail published the profiles of the top ten UK electrophysiologists recommended by cardiologists themselves. About Professor O'Neill, his peers were quoted as saying: "On the leading edge, he has built an international reputation based on his prolific research work. He is also known to provide a measured opinion on what is best for patients. He is an extremely astute doctor, particularly in diagnostics. He will look at patients very objectively and pick up very subtle clinical signs that others will overlook."

At the Heart Rhythm Clinic, Professor O'Neill will give you the time to help you understand your symptoms and reach a diagnosis. He will provide treatment advice and expertise in partnership with you and tailored to your concerns.

Dr Wyn Davies is a consultant cardiologist who has long had an interest in the management of cardiac arrhythmias. He has been based at St Mary's and Hannersmith Hospitals in London where he established the department of cardiac electrophysiology. He has pioneered a number of new treatments, including the use of a robotic arm to carry out delicate procedures to eliminate heart rhythm disorders. He introduced non-contact mapping of cardiac arrhythmias into clinical practice for humans performing the first human studies and studied the Rhythmia heart rhythm mapping system which uses a whisk shaped probe, covered with electrodes, to enable fast and accurate measurement of a cardiac chamber in under 15 minutes.

Current research interests include mechanisms of causing clinical rhythm abnormalities, mapping and ablation of cardiac arrhythmias, new energy sources for catheter ablation and automatic arrhythmia recognition. Dr Davies is also the medical director for HCA's Harley Street Clinic, leading interactions with medical staff and the leadership team. He is the Chairman of HCA's pan London Cardio-thoracic and Vascular dDepartment. He was the first President of the European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society and has been Honorary Treasurer of the British Cardiovascular Society. He has sat on or chaired numerous National and International Scientific and Advisory Boards.

He qualified in 1976 from Westminster Medical School and undertook post-graduate training at St Stephen's, Westminster, the London Chest, Guy's and St Bartholomew's Hospitals. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, the Heart Rhythm Society and of the British Heart Rhythm Society.

It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently.

Dr Melikian trained at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospitals Medical School, qualifying with Distinction in 1996 and was awarded a Doctorate in Medicine (MD) from the University of London in 2010. He underwent postgraduate training at the Hammersmith, Royal Brompton and King’s College Hospitals in London. Dr Melikian undertook a two-year interventional Fellowship at the world-renowned Cardiovascular Centre in Aalst, Belgium and a heart valve disease Fellowship at the Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa.

To date, Dr Melikian has received over 11 academic and clinical awards including the prestigious British Cardiac Society John Parker Fellowship (2005 - 2007), the Foord Caiger Prize in Cardiology and the Golding Bird and Treasurer’s Medals. In 2012 he was invited to join a panel of cardiologists providing emergency cardiology cover for the London Olympic Games.

Dr Melikian maintains a large clinical practice encompassing all aspects of coronary and structural intervention as well as general cardiology. In parallel with his complex interventional work, he maintains a busy general cardiology practice covering a wide spectrum of pathology with a special emphasis on management of chest discomfort, breathlessness, cardiac arrhythmias, heart failure and heart valve disease. He regularly assesses and treats patients with cardiovascular risk factors and has a special interest in the management of patients with resistant high blood pressure.

He has an international reputation in interventional cardiology specialising in all aspects of coronary intervention in particular complex angioplasty as well as interventional management of myocardial infarction and remains one of the highest volume interventional cardiologists in the UK. He also has an active structural interventional practice regularly closing septal defects such as patent foramen ovale (PFO) as well as a left atrial appendage (LAA) with emphasis on prevention of stroke and TIA. He was instrumental in securing national commissioning for these structural services to King’s College Hospital in 2014 and has set up the Neuro-Cardiac Multidisciplinary Meeting (MDM) with the colleagues from the regional Stroke and Neurology Units at King’s College Hospital which he continues to chair. 

Dr Melikian has an ongoing clinical research programme with an international reputation on coronary physiology. He collaborates widely and is involved in multiple international clinical trials. To date, his research has been supported through a number of competitively awarded scientific grants from the British Cardiac Society, British Heart Foundation and National Academy of Sciences.
