He qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 1993 and completed his post graduate higher specialist training in general medicine and cardiology in hospitals around London including: St. George’s Hospital London, King’s College Hospital London, and the Sussex Cardiac Centre Brighton.

Throughout his training, Dr. Ghuran has worked with eminent European and world leaders in cardiology. Dr. Ghuran is trained in performing multivessel and complex coronary artery intervention (angioplasty/stents) using both the radial and femoral approach. In addition to general cardiology and percutaneous coronary intervention, Dr. Ghuran also has an interest in pacemakers, valvular heart disease, syncope, hypertension, heart failure, palpitations, arrhythmia management, cardiovascular risk assessment, sports cardiology, and inherited cardiac conditions.

Patient Feedback

  • I was immediately put at ease by Dr. Ghuran’s warm friendly manner. He conducted three cardiac tests which showed that I needed a bi pass operation. He explained my problems and the options available to me in simple and easy to understand terms and guided me to the best options for my future wellbeing. I was completely confident in everything that he recommended. A year on and I have had no problems at all and reassured by the regular and thorough after care check-ups, I am now leading a normal active life once again. Thank you Dr. Ghuran.

  • Dr Ghuran has treated me for many years. I have always found him attentive to his patient and very sympathetic to my needs throughout. He has given me the best of advice and treatment and I trust his expertise implicitly. He has such a pleasant bed side manner and he always reassures me and comforts me and I am sure all his patients. I have seen several Cardiologists over the years including my own brother and I have to say that Dr Ghuran beats them all. I hope he will be able to treat me for many years to come.

  • I was referred to Dr Ghuran last summer for investigation concerning the efficiency of my heart and blood circulation. I found Dr Ghuran to be welcoming, and very approachable. He did an extensive examination and referred me for an echocardiogram and a heart monitor. I had a follow up appointment where Dr Ghuran reassured me that all was well whilst also giving his professional advice. He creates an easy relationship which enables a perhaps anxious patient to ask questions and explore the best course of action.

  • I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Ghuran to family and friends, his care and thoroughness is first class. Dr Ghuran took his time to listen to my health concerns and troubles with regards to my uncontrolled hypertension as I have other comorbidities. A very thorough medical history was taken, and various tests arranged to eliminate secondary causes. I felt at ease talking to Dr Ghuran (I am not the best with hospital settings). He is kind, with a reassuring manner and his clinical knowledge in his field is incredible. I am so thankful for his input with my health.
