His research interests have included the molecular mechanisms which underlie the development of left ventricular hypertrophy and the application of coronary physiology in an interventional setting. His research has also explored the differences and potential advantages of intervention performed from the radial artery.

Outside of work Dr Byrne enjoys music, both listening and playing! He is currently re-learning the piano. If he’s not practicing the piano he can be found cycling, playing tennis or skiing.

What is a Cardiologist? 

A heart attack, also known as myocardial infarction, is one of the most common causes of hospitalisation in the UK and globally. Essentially, it is the process of acute damage to the heart muscle due to obstructed blood flow in the vessels that feed the heart. Heart attacks are medical emergencies, and anyone suspecting their chest pain and other symptoms is a heart attack should call emergency services right away. However, following a heart attack and discharge from the hospital, ongoing aftercare is critical for patients to regain their stamina and prevent future heart attacks. A top cardiologist in London found on Doctify can provide the kind of ongoing care that patients need to have the best post-heart attack outcomes and the lowest risk for a recurrence.

When to see a Cardiologist?

Finding a cardiologist in London is easy with Doctify. The best cardiologists in London to see after a heart attack will provide follow-up and monitoring services for cardiac patients. Additionally, they may start patients on a medication and exercise regimen, do additional testing, or recommend preventative surgical procedures. Frequently, the most common advice from top cardiologists in London involves lifestyle changes – more frequent exercise, a better diet, and eliminating smoking, excessive alcohol use, or other detrimental habits. Additionally, if a cardiologist in London determines that a patient needs any kind of non-emergency surgical procedure (such as bypass surgery) to help mitigate future heart attack risks, they usually can perform these procedures at their affiliated hospital locations. This provides heart attack patients with a continuity of quality care and peace of mind.
