Personal Profile

Mr Dhanjal Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist and Honorary Professor of Cardiology at the University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire and the The Meriden Hospital, Coventry. (Professor TS Dhanjal MBChB (hons) PhD FRCP FESC). Professor Dhanjal qualified with first-class honours from Birmingham University Medical School in 2000 and rotated through various Glasgow and Birmingham teaching hospitals before returning to University in 2003 to undertake research funded by the British Heart Foundation. Professor Dhanjal was awarded a PhD from Birmingham University in 2007. He was awarded a clinical training and research position at St Thomas’ Hospital, London where he completed my sub-speciality training in heart rhythm treatment (electrophysiology). Towards the end of his training, he was awarded a two year advanced electrophysiology fellowship at the renowned Henri Mondor Hospital in Paris and was appointed as a Consultant in 2014.

Professor Dhanjal is trained in all aspects of cardiac arrhythmia management including catheter ablation in particular ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia and Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, pacemaker/defibrillator implantation, cardiac resynchronisation therapy and left atrial appendage occlusion. Professor Dhanjal's specialist interest is the ablation of complex arrhythmias especially atrial fibrillation and life-threatening ventricular tachycardia.

Professor Dhanjal has been appointed as Professor of Cardiology at UHCW affiliated with Warwick Medical School. He has brought in over one million pounds of research funding in his career to date and currently supervises 2 PhD students. Professor Dhanjal will have an additional 2 PhD students starting in the near future and his research team are focused on improving the understanding and management of dangerous heart rhythm disorders (Ventricular Tachycardia). The VT research team collaborate with other academic centres in London (Bart’s Translational Arrhythmia Research Group), Paris (Henri Mondor Hospital INSERM U955) and US (University of Washington, Seattle). Recently, the VT research team have shown the benefits of performing VT ablation using a high-density HDGRID catheter and have shown the benefits of performing ablation with a novel Diamond-Tip ablation catheter. Professor Dhanjal is an expert international speaker in the field of VT and proctors other UK and European centres.
