Dr Virdee graduated from the medical school of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in 1994, and worked as a junior doctor within the prestigious golden circuit in London and as a research fellow at St George’s Hospital. He returned to Guy’s to complete his training in cardiology, and was duly appointed to Papworth Hospital in June 2006 as a consultant cardiologist with a specialist interest in cardiac electrophysiology.
Interested in all aspects of cardiac electrophysiology, he performs catheter ablations for all cardiac arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation (AF), and device related procedures. He has a particular expertise in implanting biventricular devices that deliver cardiac resynchronisation therapy, and device extraction. He has developed research links with the University of Cambridge in this field, and this work has been presented at many international conferences. He has a personal interest in clinical audit, and is the clinical lead for audit for the cardiac directorate.
