He then undertook a period of research into invasive treatments for atrial fibrillation at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, leading to his M.D. from the University of Birmingham.
He continued to subspecialise in cardiac electrophysiology and was appointed as a Consultant at University Hospital Birmingham in 2000. While he continues to contribute to general cardiology, his main field of interest is in the treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders.
He performs catheter ablation procedures for all types of tachycardia and has helped establish University Hospital and The Priory Hospital as leading ablation centres in the Midlands and the UK, particularly in the treatment of atrial fibrillation.
He also has extensive experience at implantation and follow up of pacemakers and implantable defibrillators including resynchronisation devices. Again, he has established University Hospital as the leading cardiac device centre in the West Midlands.
