In celebration of Heart Month 2023, a leading consultant cardiologist from Cleveland Clinic London has delivered insights on how Cleveland Clinic’s distinctive medical model has been successfully implemented to deliver a world-class cardiology programme in the heart of London.
Chair of cardiology at Cleveland Clinic London, Professor Bernard Prendergast, explains how the Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute – comprising London’s most prominent heart specialists – is treating complex heart conditions in state-of-the-art facilities.
Professor Prendergast says:
“Cleveland Clinic has been ranked number one for heart care in the U.S. for 28 years running, and now only nine months since Cleveland Clinic London opened its doors to patients, our Institute is offering an exceptional model of care in London.”
“Whether that is running one of the most comprehensive transcatheter valve programmes in UK private care, or offering world-leading expertise in sports cardiology, our elite team of cardiologists provides care for a wide range of common and complex heart conditions.
“This includes treatment for coronary artery disease, valve and structural heart disease, heart failure and arrhythmias with innovative, evidence-based therapies.”
“We also have clinicians developing techniques for robotic percutaneous coronary interventions, laser extraction of pacemaker leads and laser coronary angioplasty.
“These sophisticated, minimally invasive treatments will help many patients recover faster with less pain, and allow them access to the latest advances in heart care.”
Cleveland Clinic London brings together a multidisciplinary team of the UK’s most prominent cardiologists and cardiac surgeons.
Alongside them is a first-class team of electrophysiologists that features some of the UK’s leading arrhythmia experts.
The team is complemented by Professor Sanjay Sharma, an internationally lauded sports cardiologist who has pioneered this emerging field of cardiac care, making Cleveland Clinic London uniquely qualified to care for elite and recreational athletes with heart rhythm disorders.
Professor Prendergast adds:
“The Cleveland Clinic was established over one hundred years ago, and the principles of education, research and innovation were paramount from the beginning. Here at Cleveland Clinic London, we are able to preserve and build upon those values.
“Our team is currently planning programmes for robotic percutaneous coronary interventions, laser extraction of pacemaker leads and laser coronary angioplasty.
“These sophisticated, minimally invasive treatments will allow patients to recover faster with less pain, and enable them to benefit from the latest advances in heart care.”
