Dr Neil Srinivasan is a Consultant Cardiologist specialising in the management of Heart Rhythm problems, known as Cardiac Electrophysiology. He is a Consultant Cardiologist at The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre and works as a clinical Electrophysiologist and Academic establishing the centres pioneering research program. He was previously a Locum Consultant at the Barts Heart Centre in London where he was the lead for Ventricular Tachycardia Ablation and The Lister Hospital where he was the lead for Electrophysiology.
Dr Srinivasan trained in cardiac rhythm management at The Heart Hospital in Marylebone and the Barts Heart Centre in London. During this time he undertook a nationally awarded BHF Clinical Research Fellowship studying the mechanisms of lethal cardiac rhythm disorders and was awarded a PhD at the University College London (UCL). He has undertaken a period of research at Washington University St Louis USA as part of this developing non-invasive method of studying the hearts rhythm. He has presented and published his work at national and international conferences. He has extensive experience in performing catheter ablation and has authored and co-authored many major papers in the field.
He sees patients with all types of arrhythmia, including fast rhythms like atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter, frequent ectopic or skipped beats, supraventricular tachycardias SVTs, VT and slow heart rhythms causing dizzy spells and blackouts needing pacemakers. He also manages patients with chest pain and breathlessness.
