Heart Failure, Heart Muscle Disease/Cardiomyopathy, Interventional Cardiology + 1 more

Dr Azad Ghuran is a consultant cardiologist. He works for East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust (Lister Hospital, Stevenage and Queen Elizabeth II Hospital, Welwyn Garden City).

He qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 1993 and completed his post graduate higher specialist training in general medicine and cardiology in hospitals around London including St George's Hospital London, King's College Hospital London, and the Sussex Cardiac Centre in Brighton. He secured a one-year interventional fellowship to work at the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis (OLVG) hospital in Amsterdam where radial angioplasty was first performed (in 1992) and pioneered. Radial coronary intervention is technically more challenging but more rewarding as there is improved patient comfort, a significant reduction in bleeding complications, allows early mobilisation (some patients can actually walk out of the operating theatre after the procedure) and facilitates day case procedures.

Throughout his training, Dr Ghuran has worked with eminent European and world leaders in cardiology. He is trained in performing multi-vessel and complex coronary artery intervention (angioplasty/stents) using both the radial and femoral approach, although he prefers the former. He has a diverse clinical background and is experienced in most aspects of general cardiology. This is reflected by his range of interests that also include coronary microvascular disease and coronary artery spasm, pacemakers, valvular heart disease, syncope (collapsing with loss of consciousness), hypertension, heart failure, and arrhythmia (palpitations) management.

Dr Ghuran adopts a multidisciplinary approach in managing his patients, often liaising with other sub-specialists in cardiology, physicians, surgeons, dieticians and physiotherapists. This approach is advantageous as it provides the best possible care for his patients. He has published many articles in the field of cardiology including one book: 'Emergency Cardiology', five book chapters and many peer-reviewed articles. He has also reviewed articles for several foremost cardiology journals and has presented at conferences nationally and internationally in the field of cardiology. Dr Ghuran takes an active role in medical education, training general practitioners, junior doctors, nurses, technicians, paramedics and medical students.

Heart Muscle Disease/Cardiomyopathy, Interventional Cardiology

Dr Laura Corr is a Consultant Cardiologist at the Harley Street Clinic and Guy's and St Thomas' Foundation Trust. 

Laura qualified in medicine at University College Hospital in 1981 and did higher medical training at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School. In 1991 she gained a PhD in vascular biology at University College London and the Royal Brompton Hospital. The specialty of cardiology beckoned, and she took up the Senior Registrar post at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School and St Mary's Hospital, London.

When interventional cardiology – angiography, angioplasty and stenting – was still in its infancy, Laura won a Royal Society of Medicine European Fellowship to study advanced interventional techniques in France. She worked in a unit that treated over 3000 cases per year, and her training included complex angioplasty, stenting and use of rotablation, intravascular angioscopy and ultrasound.

She returned to the UK as Consultant Interventional Cardiologist to the Regional Cardiothoracic Unit at the Brook Hospital, the busiest interventional cardiac unit in the UK. There she performed over 400 procedures a year, including angioplasty and stenting, valvuloplasty, permanent pacemaker insertion, and selective arterial embolisation.

Laura was elected a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology in 1995 and in the same year she was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital. Her role included care of all aspects of adult cardiology, routine and emergency procedures and the supervision and training of specialist registrars, nursing and technical staff. She was invited to lecture general physicians and cardiologists in the UK and internationally on implementation of effective management of cardiac disease.

She was Associate Editor of the European Heart Journal for 8 years and has published widely on risk factor management and angioplasty.

In 1997, she was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians.

Dr Kamdar is passionate about delivering high-quality care and strongly believes in shared-decision making and patient-centred care. He ensures his patients are fully involved in and informed about their condition, proposed investigations and treatment options.

Dr Kamdar graduated with Honours from the renowned Medical College of St Bartholomew's and the Royal London Hospitals in 1996 and undertook his general professional training at King’s College, Royal Brompton and Hammersmith Hospitals in London. He underwent postgraduate training in cardiology at King’s College and Guys & St Thomas’s Hospitals and additional subspecialty Fellowship training in cardiac devices and arrhythmia at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. He was appointed Consultant Cardiologist in 2009. 

Dr Kamdar has more than 20 years’ experience in cardiology and specialises in the investigation, diagnosis and management of all aspects of adult general cardiology including arrhythmia, heart failure, ischaemic heart disease, hypertension and valvular heart disease. His subspecialist interest is in cardiac device treatments (pacemakers, defibrillators [ICD] and biventricular cardiac resynchronization therapy [CRT] devices), slow and fast heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) and heart failure. 

Dr Kamdar has a particular passion for cardiac device therapies and is widely regarded as an expert in this field, with multiple peer-reviewed publications. He is accredited as a Certified Cardiac Devices Specialist (CCDS) from The International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE).

Dr Kamdar is highly experienced in the implantation and follow-up of simple and complex cardiac devices and performs the latest innovative cardiac device procedures including subcutaneous ICDs and His-bundle (conduction system) pacing. He has consistently been the highest volume implanter of complex cardiac devices at King’s College and Croydon University Hospitals for several years and frequently implants cardiac devices in difficult and challenging cases that have previously been unsuccessful.

At Croydon University Hospital, Dr Kamdar established a new complex cardiac pacemaker and defibrillator implantation and follow-up service which received positive recognition and accreditation from NHS England in 2015.  He has built an effective Arrhythmia team of doctors, specialist nurses and cardiac physiologists dedicated to arrhythmia care, and chairs the regular multi-disciplinary team meeting, which has improved the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias and heart failure for the population of Croydon. In addition he has received Clinical Excellence Awards and been awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians for this work.

Dr Kamdar successfully introduced novel cardiac device technologies (subcutaneous-ICDs and His-bundle pacing) at Croydon University Hospital and regularly performs these procedures at both King’s College and Croydon University Hospitals. 

In addition, he has developed a Cardiac Devices Research Programme at Croydon University Hospital and is the local Principal Investigator for several ongoing NIHR clinical research trials. His research interests include improving the response to cardiac resynchronisation therapy and physiological intrinsic Conduction System Pacing (CSP).
