    Dr. Nijjer is a Consultant Cardiologist at both the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Foundation NHS Trust. He is a Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London. He is an Emerging Leader for the British Cardiovascular Society and has worked to deliver Cardiology training in London by sitting on the Cardiology Section of the Royal Society of Medicine. He specialises in coronary intervention and focused his clinical practice in the management of patients with angina and myocardial infarction. His practice encompasses all aspects of cardiology and he enjoys applying the latest research and techniques to help his patients.

    Dr. Nijjer studied medicine at the University of Bristol, where he graduated with Honours in 2004 with two scholarships, many academic prizes and the prestigious Wolfson Award from the Royal College of Physicians. He undertook his clinical training at some of the most prestigious hospitals in London, including the Hammersmith Hospital and Royal Brompton Hospital and Harefield Hospital.

    Dr. Nijjer is committed to the better treatment of patients through the development and application of new medical technologies. His PhD, funded by the Medical Research Council and awarded by Imperial College, involved the development of new techniques (iFR and iFR-pullback) to measure blood flow in coronary arteries with blockages. Dr Nijjer pioneered the use of iFR-pullback to better treat coronary blockages and this technology has been used in thousands of patients around the world. Dr Nijjer has over 90 peer-reviewed papers in respected journals and has written several books.

    He is an established expert in invasive coronary physiology which can help guide Cardiologists on when and where a coronary stent is needed.
