About

  • Biography icon plus

    Mr Bahrami is a consultant in cardiac and transplant surgery at Harefield Hospital. He trained and qualified in France at Pitie-Salpetriere University in Paris. He started at the Trust in 2001, having previously worked as a consultant for Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust and Barts and The London Chest Hospital NHS Trust. Mr Bahrami is at the forefront of developments in endoscopic minimally invasive heart surgery. Instead of conventional surgery, where the breast bone has to be cut in two, heart valves are replaced or repaired by gaining access to the heart through a small incision between the ribs. He uses a thoracoscope to view the chest cavity and to guide his movements.,Mr Bahrami also performs coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG) through a mini incision on the side of the chest while the heart is beating (called off-pump CABG) rather than using a heart bypass machine. In 2007 he performed the first double-lung transplant from a non-heart beating donor.,These procedures offer the benefits of conventional open heart surgery but with less traumatic injury, a shorter stay in hospital, a smaller scar and a quicker recovery time.,His technique is well established and is offered to patients on a routine basis.,Mr Bahrami has developed strong healthcare links with France and countries in the Middle East, including Iran and Saudi Arabia. Medical students from Tehran train under him at Harefield Hospital and he also travels to the region to demonstrate his minimally invasive and beating heart techniques.
