Personal profile

Dr Chandran is a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist practicing at Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Sussex County Hospital NHS Trust. He is trained in all aspects of adult cardiology with a special interest in complex coronary intervention, intravascular imaging and structural heart disease.

Dr Chandran was educated at Westminster School and subsequently qualified as a doctor from St George's Hospital Medical School, London, in 2006. He was awarded an intercalated BSc for original genetics research and a merit prize in clinical medicine during his medical training.

He entered specialist training in cardiology, where he rotated through a series of prestigious posts in London and on the South Coast. Dr Chandran was successfully awarded a Doctorate of Medicine (MD Res) in recognition of his research at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. He subsequently completed subspecialty training in coronary intervention at the Royal Sussex County and St Thomas' hospitals.

After completing his training, Dr Chandran was offered an extremely prestigious, fully-funded interventional fellowship at McMaster University, Canada. During his fellowship, he was trained specifically in chronic total occlusions and percutaneous mitral valve intervention (mitraclip).

Dr Chandran treats patients with a variety of symptoms, including chest pain, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia palpitations, breathlessness and blackouts. He organises and performs numerous investigations including ECGs, ambulatory ECG monitoring, echocardiograms, cardiac CT and cardiac MRI as required.

Following his fellowship, he has strong links and ongoing projects with McMaster University, a centre world-famous for large cardiovascular trials and landmark publications. To date, he has presented his research internationally, published in high impact journals and written book chapters.

Clinical Interests

As an interventional cardiologist, I have performed well over 1,000 percutaneous coronary interventions. I undertake detailed intracoronary imaging (optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound) and physiological assessments (pressure wire) to guide my decision making and have experience and dedicated training in complex percutaneous coronary interventions including chronic total occlusions, bifurcations and rotational atherectomy. In addition, I have expertise in optical coherence tomography (OCT) from my post-doctoral research which involved investigating the molecular mechanisms contributing to patients having acute heart attacks.
