Areas of expertise

Dr Saha is a consultant cardiologist (Heart Specialist), who was appointed in 2010.
 
His practice encompasses work in the NHS at both Cheltenham General Hospital and Gloucestershire Royal Hospitals.
 
He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge University, St Bartholomew’s and the London Medical School, and the University of London for his PhD. His cardiology training included several years’ training at St Thomas’s Hospital, The London Chest Hospital, and the Royal Sussex Cardiac Centre.
 
Dr Saha specialises in the investigation of:

  • chest pain
  • palpitations
  • shortness of breath from a cardiac perspective.

Typical initial investigations include an ECG (electrocardiogram), echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) and heart rhythm recording, depending on symptoms.
 
Dr Saha also specialises in coronary angiography, complex coronary angioplasty and stent insertion to treat angina and heart attacks. This means a stent can be implanted at the time of the first angiogram, if necessary, without the need to return for a second procedure. Furthermore, he can perform coronary angiograms or angioplasty from either the wrist or the groin.
 
Procedures performed:

  • coronary angiography
  • coronary angioplasty (Stent Insertion)
  • intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)
  • pressure wire
  • Rotational atherectomy (Rotablation)
