Consultant Cardiologist & Electrophysiologist

Cardiology

Ross Hunter qualified from Guy’s King’s and St Thomas School of Medicine and completed his postgraduate training in London and the South East. He is a consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. He specializes in heart rhythm management and practices almost exclusively in this field. This includes seeing new patients with palpitations, dizziness or fainting, but also complex referrals from around the country for catheter ablation or pacemaker implantation. He performs over 200 complex ablation procedures per year for conditions such as atrial fibrillation, using the full range of equipment such as 3D mapping systems, cryoballoons, robotics and more.  He also implants, upgrades and extracts all types of pacemakers including cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), biventricular pacemakers for heart failure and leadless pacemakers.

His PhD was in novel methods of mapping and ablating persistent atrial fibrillation. This remains his main research interest and he is the atrial fibrillation lead at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, now the largest cardiac centre in Europe. He is a senior lecturer and he continues to supervise PhD students and run clinical trials in arrhythmia. He has published widely on atrial fibrillation and other areas of heart rhythm management in peer reviewed journals and has edited 6 books. He is Editor-in Chief of Cardiac Rhythm News, a journal bringing the latest scientific advances and industry news to clinicians.
