About

Dr Ahsan graduated from Guys Kings and St Thomas’ Medical School in 2000 with a First Class Honours degree in his BSc and undertook his cardiology specialist training at various prestigious hospitals in London where he has worked with world-renowned experts. These include the Royal Brompton Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Heart Hospital where he undertook his fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac devices.

His postgraduate medical doctorate was awarded from the University College London where he evaluated strategies to optimise outcomes in patients with cardiac rhythm devices. His pioneering research work was awarded the Royal Society of Medicine National Prize in 2009 and was presented nationally and internationally in Europe and the USA. He has been a finalist in two national young investigator awards.

Dr Ahsan was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at the Heart Hospital, University College London Hospital and moved to the Barts Heart Centre in May 2015 following the merger of the two hospitals. He is currently one of the leads for atrial fibrillation here. 

He is also an honorary consultant at North Middlesex University Hospital where his practice encompasses all aspects of adult cardiology. Here, he has also established the first ablation service for cardiac rhythm disturbances in North London for the local population. He is an expert in managing patients with a range of cardiac symptoms and conditions and has a special interest in heart rhythm disturbances.

He regularly performs simple and complex catheter ablation procedures, using the latest technologies for all arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation. His research interest is in the field of new techniques for the management of atrial fibrillation.  He is a specialist in implanting all types of cardiac devices including pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy. He also sees and treats patients with blackouts, chest pains and high blood pressure and performs coronary angiography.

Dr Ahsan is the lead for training within the heart rhythm department at Barts Heart Centre.

An outstanding consultant, as professional and thorough as they come. Following on from a diagnosis of an arrhythmia, I opted for an ablation procedure which Dr Ahsan performed on me at the Harley Street clinic. It was a pleasant experience overall. I was kept informed throughout the process and he was very clear in his explanation of what to expect. I especially appreciated his calm, caring and down to earth demeanour which left both my wife and me at ease. I had every confidence that it would be a success and I wasn’t disappointed. I received a follow up call post procedure and his lovely secretary Helen very efficiently organised my follow up consultation without having to do this myself.

Dr Ahsan is outstanding. In our initial consultation and in our brief chats before and after my catheter cardiac ablation procedure at the equally excellent Harley Street Clinic, he was friendly, explained things very clearly and precisely, and answered all my questions carefully. I felt I was in in good hands before my procedure, and writing now (two and a half weeks later) feel the same. Everything went smoothly and was all done to a high standard. Thank you to Dr Ahsan, and the whole clinical team. Great job.

Dr Ahsan was so understanding about how nervous I felt about the WPW ablation procedure, he also helped me understand the risks and put things into perspective for me. Dr Ahsan has been very helpful and his team have followed up diligently and checked up on me after the procedure as well. Very caring! While I was in hospital, Dr Ahsan also came by in person to check up on me, so caring and kind and explained in detail how it all went. He re-assured me and I look forward to my follow up appointment. I hope all will be well, however I feel very comfortable with Dr Ahsan's professional and caring approach and his knowledge is highly appreciated, - I will hopefully not need any further treatment but highly recommend Dr Ahsan for his diligent approach and care for you as a patient.
