Dr Deven Patel qualified from the Middlesex Hospital (now merged with UCLH) in 1985 with distinction, and trained in general and interventional cardiology at the Royal Free, Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals.
His principle sub-speciality interests have been in the investigation and treatment of acute and chronic chest pain, and in the risk assessment of acute coronary disease. He has been undertaking coronary intervention and stenting for over 22 years including rotablation and the use of intracoronary techniques such as pressure wires, intravascular ultrasound and more recently optical coherence tomography.
Dr Deven Patel’s experience in diagnostic coronary angiography exceeds 15,000 cases and in coronary stenting over 2000 cases. He has also been inserting single and dual chamber pacemaker implants for 25 years. As a general cardiologist he has widespread expertise in the management of atrial fibrillation, valvular heart disease, hypertension and heart failure.
His clinical and research interests have been predominantly in the investigation and risk assessment of patients with chest pain syndromes, in coronary intervention, and most recently in the value of CT coronary angiography in chest pain clinics. Outside of a busy cardiological practice and a happy family life with his wife and two boys, he enjoys physical pursuits including playing squash, tennis, skiing and most recently completing a 40k bike race as part of a triathlon relay as well as climbing Mt Kilimanjaro.
