Dr Rahim Kanji is an outstanding consultant cardiologist who provides excellent general cardiology care, and specialises in interventional cardiology.

Dr Kanji treats patients with shortness of breath (owing to heart failure, valvular and structural abnormalities), palpitations (owing to arrhythmia), hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia and chest pain (owing to heart attacks and angina). Dr Kanji uses his expertise to investigate patients with non-invasive tests, as well as invasive angiography, and treats with balloons and stents (angioplasty) as required. His treatment includes the latest technologies and best equipment, including intravascular imaging, ensuring the best possible, tailored treatment, minimising the risk of stent failure and further heart attacks.

For the NHS, at the Hammersmith Hospital, Dr Kanji is mainly focussed on the treatment of patients with severe heart attacks, where he performs emergency lifesaving angioplasty.

Dr Kanji also spends a lot of his time and effort delivering talks and education to GPs (as well as cardiology trainees) as he recognises that the majority of cardiac care is provided by GPs in the community, and it is his passion to ensure all patients, including those he is not directly involved with, are in receipt of the best and latest care.

Dr Kanji obtained a BSc (in Endocrinology) and a medical degree from Imperial College London where he graduated with distinction. He underwent post-graduate medical training, and thereafter cardiology specialist training in the highly competitive and prestigious London - Imperial deanery, before undertaking a PhD in the risk stratification of patients with heart attacks and aortic stenosis, also awarded by Imperial College London (National Heart and Lung Institute). In fact, thanks to his research, he is considered an expert in anti-platelet therapy and the management of patients with thrombosis (heart attacks). His work has been published in high impact factor journals.

Dr Kanji would be honoured and privileged to see you at Imperial Private Care, and is fully committed to treating, and improving your quality of life.
