About

Dr Shankar Sridharan is a Consultant Paediatric Cardiologist and Chief Clinical Information Officer at Great Ormond Street Hospital.  He qualified as a doctor from Imperial College Medical School (St Mary’s Hospital), London in 1998. His NHS practice is based at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. In terms of child heart surgery, the department is the largest in the UK. Dr Sridharan has worked at GOSH since 2001

His private practice is based at the Harris International Patient Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital and at the Harley Street Clinic. He also see patients at the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, BUPA Cromwell Hospital and at The Portland Hospital, London.

He specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care of all types of heart disease affecting babies, children and teenagers, including murmurs, holes in the heart such as atrial septal defects (ASD) and ventricular septal defects (VSD), valve problems and all complex forms of structural heart disease.

Patients are often referred to a Kids Cardiologist (baby or child heart doctor) for the best assessment following the suspicion of heart disease from either clinical signs such as cyanosis (blueness), following the detection of a heart murmur in a baby or child or due to symptoms such as breathlessness and poor weight gain. A family history of heart problems in siblings or relatives is also often a reason for review.

Congenital heart disease in a baby or child may be best managed in the clinic without the need for interventional procedures or child heart surgery. If these are required, he is fortunate to work with the best team as part of his London
paediatric cardiology practice. The care plan created will provide direct access to the top paediatric interventional and best surgical doctors in the country.

If you have a baby or child with a heart problem or concerns regarding a possible cardiac issue and are considering  private care, he welcomes any enquiries and can be contacted by email , or via his practice manager Rita on 07428 133489.

Mr Sridharan was incredibly knowledgeable. He talked me through the scan as it was happening, answering all of my questions. He was fantastic with my baby and gave him something to hold during the scan to keep him occupied and distracted. I would recommend him to anyone.
