    About

    Dr Ahsan graduated from Guys Kings and St Thomas’ Medical School in 2000 with a First Class Honours degree in his BSc and undertook his cardiology specialist training at various prestigious hospitals in London where he has worked with world-renowned experts. These include the Royal Brompton Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Heart Hospital where he undertook his fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac devices.

    His postgraduate medical doctorate was awarded from the University College London where he evaluated strategies to optimise outcomes in patients with cardiac rhythm devices. His pioneering research work was awarded the Royal Society of Medicine National Prize in 2009 and was presented nationally and internationally in Europe and the USA. He has been a finalist in two national young investigator awards.

    Dr Ahsan was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at the Heart Hospital, University College London Hospital and moved to the Barts Heart Centre in May 2015 following the merger of the two hospitals. He is currently one of the leads for atrial fibrillation here. 

    He is also an honorary consultant at North Middlesex University Hospital where his practice encompasses all aspects of adult cardiology. Here, he has also established the first ablation service for cardiac rhythm disturbances in North London for the local population. He is an expert in managing patients with a range of cardiac symptoms and conditions and has a special interest in heart rhythm disturbances.

    He regularly performs simple and complex catheter ablation procedures, using the latest technologies for all arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation. His research interest is in the field of new techniques for the management of atrial fibrillation.  He is a specialist in implanting all types of cardiac devices including pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy. He also sees and treats patients with blackouts, chest pains and high blood pressure and performs coronary angiography.

    Dr Ahsan is the lead for training within the heart rhythm department at Barts Heart Centre. 

    Dr Ahsan prides himself on placing the patient at the heart of his approach. He takes the time to make a complete assessment and takes particular care to explain all aspects of the consultation and treatment options to his patients.

    Arrhythmia (Irregular Heartbeat)
    Dr Ahsan has been an exemplary doctor in every meeting I have had with him. In each of my face-to-face meetings with him, he has explained the need for heart treatment in a clear and straighforward manner, answering my questions and putting me at ease. This was most apparent durng our meeting when he had to explain the findings of the heart monitor. The morning after heart surgery Dr Ahsan came into my hospital room to check how I was doing, that I felt comfortable, explained how the operation had gone and my need for a further follow-up meeting in a few weeks' time. I have been very fortunate to have been treated by Dr Ahsan and I am very grateful of his expertise.

    I have been treated by Dr Ahsan for a number of cardiac problems over the last four years. Having performed an angiogram and discovering I needed surgery he very quickly referred me to an excellent surgeon,who successfully performed double bypass surgery in the Harley Street Clinic. Dr Ahsan later performed a cardiac ablation to cure my very frequent ectopic heart beats. I was terrified at the prospect of the procedure, but he has such a calm reassuring manner he made me feel very comfortable. He has also managed to control my previously uncontrollable hypertension. Dr Ahsan is very knowledgeable and will spend as long as necessary answering questions. He works with you to address your concerns rather than just telling you what to do. Dr Ahsan is an excellent Cardiologist who I would recommend to anybody and he is also the nicest man you could wish to meet.

    I found Dr Ahsan's professionalism and clear explanation incredibly reassuring and helpful. He was very thorough and patient with me explaining all my test results and possible future treatments which made me feel confident that I was being well looked after. However, the thing that stands out most for me in my dealings with both Dr Ahsan and his secretary Helen is their empathy and willingness to go above and beyond to support me during a stressful and scary time.

    Atrial Fibrillation
    I liked Dr Ahsan when I first met him. He has a quiet but confident manner and is clearly speaking from a wide experience of managing atrial fibrillation. He explained the possible plans of management, their success rate and their complications. I felt instinctively that I could trust him. I had had a previous ablation last year but had to wait over 30 weeks. By the time It went ahead, I was feeling really ill. This time at the initial consultation I was still feeling relatively well but Dr Ahsan said he would prefer to do the procedure while I was still fit - a novel idea for me - but clearly sensible. I had some routine investigations done. But as I lived at a distance, he promised to phone with the results- which he did. I had become more breathless in the interval. In addition, there was now a degree of urgency because of the corona virus. Once I had decided to go ahead, everything was organised quickly and very efficiently. The procedure was carried out within 10 days. My admission was smooth. The care was excellent and everyone was very kind. I saw Dr Ahsan on the day of the procedure which was reassuring. He also reviewed me the following day and updated me on the ablation itself and also discussed the possible outcomes. I couldn’t have wished for better care. I Dr Ahsan is a very special doctor, I consider myself lucky to have been under his care.
