About

Dr. Nijjer is an award winning Cardiologist who has an international reputation in coronary physiology.  He works a Consultant Cardiologist at both the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Foundation NHS Trust. He is a Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London. He undertakes his private practice at 66 Harley Street, BMI Syon Clinic, the BUPA Cromwell Hospital and the Wellington Hospital.  He also see patients at the private facilities at the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Hospital.


Dr Nijjer performs coronary intervention at the catheter suites of both the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust. He is part of the Primary Angioplasty on-call service at the Hammersmith Hospital which provides 24/7 care for patients suffering from a heart attack. He is an internationally recognised expert in invasive coronary physiology, an advanced technique which can help guide Cardiologists on when and where a coronary stent is needed. He has performed ground-breaking research into invasive technologies that have changed the field and lead to better treatment of patients around the world.  He is regularly invited as a speaker and faculty at international conferences including the American College of Cardiology and TCT.


Dr. Nijjer studied medicine at the University of Bristol, where he graduated with Honours in 2004 with two undergraduate scholarships and many academic prizes. He was also awarded a First Class Honours degree with prizes in Pharmacology which was supported by the prestigious Wolfson Award from the Royal College of Physicians.  He undertook his Cardiology training at the Hammersmith Hospital and Royal Brompton Hospital.  In his role as Consultant, Dr Nijjer has strived to deliver the best patient care while working across multiple hospital sites in west London.


Dr. Nijjer is committed to the better treatment of patients through the development and application of new medical technologies.  His PhD, funded by the Medical Research Council and awarded by Imperial College, involved the development of new techniques (iFR and iFR-pullback) to measure blood flow in coronary arteries with blockages. Dr Nijjer pioneered the use of iFR-pullback to better use coronary stents in patients with many blockages and the iFR technology has now been used in thousands of patients around the world. A recent editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine referred to it as 'the new gold standard'.


Dr. Nijjer possesses clinical expertise in all aspects of cardiology, including treating patients with chest pain, angina, breathlessness on exertion, palpitations or collapse. He has expertise in assessing and treating patients at increased risk of heart disease such as patients with high blood pressure, diabetes or raised cholesterol. He uses all of the latest stress testing techniques and if needed, invasive angiography, coronary stenting, and can implant pacemakers or cardiac monitoring devices when it is needed.


Dr. Nijjer's holistic approach to treatment is one of understanding as he recognises and responds to the fact that an individual's medical issues exist alongside other aspects of their lives, treating any medical conditions in a way that fits the lifestyle of his patients. He utilises the latest guideline-supported cardiac test to ensure his patients are fully investigated in addition to his thorough clinical assessment.

My father had an angiogram and shockwave procedure under the care of Dr Nijjer. Dr Nijjer has completely exceeded our expectations as a bright and knowledgeable healthcare professional. He gave and still gives us time, speaks clearly and always explains the technicalities behind the procedure and future possibilities to assure that everything is possible to ensure a great life ahead. Dr Nijjer has such a positive attitude that not only has he put my father at ease but the whole family. He always goes the extra mile to do whatever he can to help me in response to my concerns about my father – nothing is ever overlooked. He is extremely efficient, thorough, compassionate and a good natured doctor, we feel completely safe and secure in his capable hands. I cannot recommend him highly enough as a medical professional and my father is extremely fortunate and blessed to have him on his side. We would definitely recommend Dr Nijjer to anyone that goes through a similar experience.

Dr Nijjer immediately inspired the confidence in me that he was a top class Doctor and that I was in safe hands. He is very, very responsive and clear in his explanation of how things stand. The follow up is excellent too, again with a responsiveness. Perhaps the most reassuring aspect is his warmth of character.

From my first consultation with Dr Nijjer through to the Cardiac Operation he was candid , considerate and consummately professional. The treatment I needed was completely unexpected. I expected my checks to be routine. Due to Dr Nijjer’s management I was reassured that the outcome would be very positive rather than disturbed by the results of my checks. My family and I owe a great deal to Dr Nijjer and his team.
