Private fetal and paediatric cardiology in London

Dr Sridharan’s private practice is based at The Harley Street Clinic and at the Harris International Patient Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital. He also sees patients at the BMI Syon Clinic and at the BUPA Cromwell Hospital. Following a detailed assessment and diagnosis, an individualised care plan is created that will act as clear pathway of referral to a range of specialties that may include interventional procedures (day-case, key–hole procedures) or child heart surgery if indicated.

Heart disease in babies, children and teenagers

Dr Sridharan specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and on-going care of all types of heart disease affecting babies, children and teenagers (including holes-in-the-heart such as ASD’s and VSD’s, valve problems and all complex forms of structural heart disease).

Patients are often referred for assessment following the suspicion of heart disease from either clinical signs such as cyanosis (blueness), following the detection of heart murmurs in children or due to symptoms such as breathlessness and poor weight gain. A family history of heart problems in siblings or relatives is also often a reason for review.

Congenital heart disease in children 

Congenital heart disease in children may be managed in the clinic without the need for interventional procedures or child heart surgery. If these are required, Dr Sridharan is fortunate to work with an excellent team as part of his pediatric cardiac practice. The care plan created will provide direct access to the best paediatric interventional and surgical doctors in the country.

Cardiology conditions and treatments

Dr Sridharan's patients make speedy recoveries from surgery because of the great skill of the surgeons, excellent intensive care management and meticulous post-operative paediatric cardiac care. Dr Sridharan pays great attention to detail and prides himself on providing technical skill with a very human approach.
