About

Dr Oliver Segal is one of the leading heart specialists (cardiologist & electrophysiologist) in the UK, practicing privately at The Harley Street Clinic and at Barts Heart Centre, St. Bartholomew's (the largest cardiac centre in Europe) and University College Hospitals for his NHS patients. He is highly recommended by testimonials from his patients in treating heart rhythm treatments with a very patient-focused approach (www.oliversegal.com).

He graduated from King's College London in 1995, and has been dedicated to cardiology, specialising in cardiac electrophysiology and devices to help treat patients with heart rhythm problems, such as Atrial Fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia and palpitations. He trained at St. Mary's & St. George's Hospitals in London as well as obtaining a Fellowship in Electrophysiology & Devices at Prof George Klein's world-renowned lab in London, Ontario, Canada in 2007. Other notable interests and achievements include being awarded a doctorate from The National Heart & Lung Institute, Imperial College in 2008, for his research in mapping complex ventricular arrhythmias, demonstrating his dedication to developing treatments for patients with cardiac problems. He was awarded the prestigious Young Investigator's Award for parts of this research by the Heart Rhythm Society of the USA in San Francisco in 2004.

Focusing on seeing patients with a wide range of conditions and treating them with catheter ablation and devices to improve their quality of life including performing AF catheter ablation to cure atrial fibrillation and fitting pacemakers or devices such as an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICDs) to treat life-threatening heart rhythms.

Dr Segal continues to make important strides forward into heart health and research for his patients. He publishes regularly in cardiology & electrophysiology journals with interests in atrial fibrillation, catheter ablation and device implantation. He is also lead for electrophysiology education at Barts Heart Centre and Programme Director for overseas fellows, as well as lead for left atrial appendage occlusion device implantation. He sits on the British Heart Rhythm Society Exam Setting Committee.

He spent time with me, without rushing and explained my condition and the options open to me for my future treatment. Tony from Wimbledon

I was referred to Dr Segal by Diana Holdright. It was initially rather a shock to learn that I needed a pacemaker as I had thought that we were simply going to be talking more about the results of earlier tests. But actually once Dr Segal explained exactly what he thought was wrong (very convincingly) and why he thought this was the best course of action we became fully convinced it was the right thing to do. Dr Segal answered all our questions clearly and in an understandable way. I would also say that his office backup is also excellent as they have also fielded a number of questions without ever giving the slightest hint that this was a bother in what must be a very hectic life. I am now enthusiastically looking forward to having my ICD fitted as I see it as "an internal insurance policy"

Quite simply, I think that my consultation with Dr Segal, his care in commissioning of tests and fitting me with a pacemaker, probably saved me from premature death.

Initial consultation to discuss options for treatment of Afib. Comprehensive discussion on pros and cons of each option laying out clearly and simply the prognosis for each. Followed up quickly with answers to further questions I had after a few days reflection. Has enabled me to make an informed decision on further treatment. I have now agreed this with Dr Segal.

My experience with Dr Segal at The Harley Street Clinic was most satisfactory. The procedure was explained fully such that I was very confident as to the outcome. The overnight stay was comfortable and the recovery was swift, with little inconvenience. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Segal and his team for anyone needing cardiac treatment.
