Dr Ravi Assomull is an experienced cardiologist having been appointed to his consultant post in 2012. He was recruited to Ealing Hospital by the team led by Professor Jaspal Kooner specifically to set up a cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) service. He established the service which was a unique undertaking at that time being one of the only CMR units in a district general hospital.
Dr Assomull also specialises in coronary intervention, performing coronary angiography and stent implantation. His specialist training in advanced cardiac imaging during his research period enhances his interventional practice by guiding and refining the interventional procedures he undertakes. By using these complementary skills, he ensures his patients only receive invasive therapy when there is robust evidence that they will benefit from it.
He enjoys the range of clinical challenges in cardiology and embraces the rapid progress in this specialty. Specifically, he has an interest in using wearable technology to help patients care better for themselves and to aid with conditions that are often difficult to diagnose. He screens professional footballers for cardiovascular disease and has developed a further interest in sports cardiology.
Dr Assomull has regular clinics across the week across a range of sites. He has set up a one-stop-service at BMI Syon Clinic where patients can be seen and have all investigations and results provided within 24 hours. He performs coronary intervention at The Wellington Hospital in St John’s Wood.
Dr Assomull has teamed up with Dr Fakhar Khan and Dr Sayan (Shai) Sen to create the One Heart Clinic. Dr Assomull uses his own specialist skills along with those of his One Heart Clinic partners; Dr Khan and Dr Sen. Dr Khan is a specialist in cardiac rhythm disturbances and pacemaker implantations and Dr Sen is an interventional cardiologist who also undertakes cutting-edge Transcutaneous (keyhole) Aortic Valve Interventions (TAVI).
