Dr Whinnett is a general cardiologist with a specialist interest in pacing, heart rhythm disturbances and heart failure. He performs ablation for atrial and ventricular arrhythmias and implantation of pacemakers including cardia resynchronisation devices and defibrillators.
He is the clinical lead for the pacemaker extraction service and is a proctor for laser lead extraction procedures. He has a special interest in the optimisation of cardiac resynchronisation devices and has developed a technique which allows this to be performed reliably using non-invasive blood pressure measurements.
He has published extensively in the field and has a large network of collaborators both within Imperial College London as well as other leading centres in the UK and Internationally.
