Dr Tito Kabir carried out his undergraduate medical training at Guy’s Hospital Medical School, where he was awarded the Hilton dissection medal.
He then completed his PhD in cardiovascular research at University College London Medical School. This PhD was funded as a prestigious British Heart Foundation PhD scholarship and resulted in several publications.
Dr Kabir carried out his specialist interventional cardiology training at Royal Brompton and Hammersmith hospitals. He spent a year as a cardiology interventional trainee at the Le Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois, Lausanne, Switzerland where he continued to develop his skills.
Areas of expertise
Dr Kabir specialises in percutaneous coronary intervention (coronary stents), carrying out both stable and emergency coronary angioplasty via the radial (wrist) approach.
He has extensive experience in complex coronary intervention including:
- bypass graft coronary angioplasty.
He also performs angioplasty to chronically occluded coronary arteries where appropriate.
Dr Kabir has expertise in specialist functional and imaging modalities of coronary intervention. This includes intra-coronary pressure wire, intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography assessment of coronary lesions.
At Harefield Hospital, Dr Kabir actively participates in the primary angioplasty programme and has championed the radial route of access for treating heart attacks.
He is also developing a renal denervation programme at Harefield Hospital for the treatment of resistant hypertension and has become more involved in the percutaneous aortic valve programme at Harefield Hospital.
Dr Kabir presents at national and international coronary interventional meetings regularly.
