He also treats patients with known coronary disease, valve disease, arrhythmias and heart failure as well as common conditions such as hypertension and high cholesterol.

He is the Lead for Cardiology Imaging at Chelsea and Westminster Hospitals, and has expertise in CT coronary angiography (with calcium score), stress echocardiography, transoesophageal echos and cardiac MRIs. Importantly, he uses these to thoroughly investigate and treat his patients appropriately, and performs these for other heart specialists to help manage their patients.

Dr Kanaganayagam was extremely professional. He was approachable and listened and explained use of investigations and the findings thereafter. His presence and monitoring of cardiac investigations offered reassurance. I was impressed about his knowledge and approach to investigating cardiac symptoms. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Kanaganayagam to others.

Dr Sunthar has been absolutely excellent. Thorough and considered. I sent him some previous reports from another Cardiologist and he had read these thoroughly before my consultation. He and his staff always react quickly to any queries. He is a quiet, calm and peaceful Consultant who gives you time and is reassuring.
