Dr V J Karthikeyan

Personal profile

I am a consultant cardiologist, specialising in Interventional Cardiology and working at Wigan and Wythenshawe Hospital. On completion of my general medical training and a higher research degree in cardiovascular medicine in the West Midlands, I embarked on a structured training programme in cardiology in the Mersey Deanery, including high intensity sub-specialty training in percutaneous coronary intervention at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital.

As a consultant cardiologist, I have been treating patients with a wide spectrum of cardiovascular diseases.
I have taken every opportunity to keep myself up to date with scientific progress and evidence-based practice in cardiology and developed valuable personal attributes including leadership and multi-disciplinary partnership, which enable me to provide high quality, effective and efficient patient-centred care.
