    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.

    Having been referred to Dr Ahsan for possible hypertension I was very reassured to have been diagnosed in a very thoughtful, caring and professional manner. Dr Ahsan looked at me as a whole and not just a statistic that needed medication. His whole team along with Helen his PA were delightful during the diagnostics. I would highly recommend Dr Ahsan and The Heart Clinic and feel very lucky to have him as my heart consultant.

    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.
