Dr Tito Kabir trained in medicine at Guy’s Hospital Medical School, where he was awarded the Hilton dissection medal. Following that, he completed his PhD in cardiovascular research at University College London Medical School, which was funded as a prestigious British Heart Foundation PhD scholarship and resulted in several publications.
His specialist training in interventional cardiology was undertaken at Royal Brompton and Hammersmith Hospitals and he also spent a year as a cardiology interventional trainee at the Le Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois, Lausanne, Switzerland where he further developed his skills.
His specialist interests include percutaneous coronary intervention (coronary stents), TAVI (keyhole aortic valve replacement), complex coronary intervention including bifurcation, rotablation, and bypass graft coronary angioplasty. Additionally, he also holds an interest in functional and imaging modalities of coronary intervention, including intra-coronary pressure wire, intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography assessment of coronary lesion and performs angioplasty to chronically occluded coronary arteries where appropriate.
He is currently a lead member of the TAVI programme at Harefield Hospital covering assessment, preparation and undertaking of these procedures. Currently, Tit is working on developing a renal denervation programme at Harefield Hospital for the treatment of resistant hypertension.
