    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.
