    About

    Dr Gherardo Finocchiaro is a consultant cardiologist with 15 years of experience as a doctor and 8 years as a specialist. He sees patients (NHS and private) at the Royal Brompton Hospital and private patients at 77 Wimpole Street. Dr Finocchiaro is also an honorary senior lecturer at St George's University of London.


    Dr Finocchiaro specialises in cardiomyopathies, heart failure, and 'athlete's heart'. His particular interest is in heart muscle diseases which often have a genetic basis such as arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. He also deals with a number of other conditions including hypertension, heart failure, suspected coronary artery disease, and valvular heart disease.


    Dr Finocchiaro gained his medical degree at the University of Trieste in Italy. He went on to study at Stanford University where he researched hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and athlete's heart. Following this, he specialised in cardiovascular magnetic resonance at The Heart Hospital Imaging Center as well as St George's Hospital in London. Dr Finocchiaro then completed a PhD focusing on sudden death in athletes, family screening in decedents of sudden death, and physiological adaptation to exercise. He won a number of awards for his work and was a finalist for the European Society of Cardiology Young Investigator Award in 2015. He has also published his work in international journals.


    Dr Finocchiaro also holds level III accreditation in CMR (EACVI) and is accredited in echocardiography by the British Society of Echocardiography.
