    About

    Dr Nick Linton works as a consultant Cardiologist specializing in heart rhythm problems. It is a field he finds hugely rewarding. Dr Linton treats patients who have a wide range of presentations, such as palpitation, chest pain, shortness of breath, or collapses. He performs cardiac ablation procedures and pacemaker implantation.

    Before pursuing a career in medicine Nick Linton obtained a master's degree in engineering, economics and management from Oxford University. After a period developing new cardiac output monitoring technology, he then studied medicine at King's College, London and qualified with distinction in 2002.

    He obtained membership of the Royal Colleges of Physicians (MRCP) and trained in cardiology at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (St Mary's and Hammersmith hospitals), St Thomas' Hospital and also completed a clinical fellowship in Bordeaux, a world renowned centre for cardiac electrophysiology.

    Dr Linton is an expert in clinical assessment, investigation as well as invasive procedures for heart problems. As a cardiologist with a background in engineering, he utilised this unique experience in medical research. He has a particular interest in ablation treatments using 3D Mapping technologies. He has developed a leading cardiac mapping system with colleagues at Imperial College.
