Dr Saha is a fully trained fee-assured Consultant Cardiologist (heart specialist). He trained at Cambridge University (Trinity College) and then Barts and the London Hospitals, with Specialist Cardiology Training at St Thomas’ Hospital and the London Chest Hospital. He was appointed in his cardiology consultant post in 2010 at Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals.
He endeavours to provide a personalised, holistic approach to his patients, with individualised investigations and treatments.
He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge University, St Bartholomew’s and the London Medical School, and the University of London for his PhD. His PhD was funded by the British Heart Foundation. His cardiology training included several years’ training at St Thomas’s Hospital, The London Chest Hospital, and the Royal Sussex Cardiac Centre, under the direct supervision of some of the most renowned cardiologists in the UK.
Dr Saha specialises in the investigation of chest pain, palpitations and shortness of breath from a cardiac perspective.
Dr Saha also specialises in coronary angiography, complex coronary angioplasty and stent insertion to treat angina and heart attacks. This means a stent can be implanted at the time of the first angiogram, if necessary, without the need to return for a second procedure. Furthermore, he can perform coronary angiograms or angioplasty from either the wrist or the groin.
He has expertise in all aspects of general adult cardiology, but in particular, angina, acute coronary syndromes and heart valve disease. He also offers expertise on ECG interpretation, and initiated a regular ECG teaching programme for doctors in the Trust, particularly those working in the acute medical specialties.
Dr Saha has lectured at both national and international levels and published widely on various aspects of heart disease. His PhD was awarded by the University of London and funded by the British Heart Foundation.
