Private cardiologist and heart specialist with broad experience in all areas of cardiology, specialist interest in ischaemic heart disease, percutaneous coronary intervention, cardiovascular risk assessment, and perioperative cardiac assessment.
Dr Brull MBBS BSc MD FRCP is a Consultant Cardiologist who qualified at the Royal Free Hospital Medical School in 1992. Since then has worked in several London teaching hospitals (Guys Hospital, The Royal Free Hospital and University College London Hospital). Following a period in clinical research, he was appointed Consultant Cardiologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer to The Whittington Hospital and Heart Hospital, University College Hospitals in October 2003.

Expertise in angina, hypertension and other heart conditions
Dr Brull has broad experience in managing patients with all common cardiac conditions including: angina (chest pain), hypertension (high blood pressure), heart failure, referrals for investigation of palpitations and collapse, cardiovascular risk assessment, perioperative cardiac assessment and treatment of elevated cholesterol levels.
Dr Brull’s main interest and specialist training is in percutaneous coronary intervention (angioplasty and stenting). This procedure is designed to alleviate angina (chest pain caused by poor blood flow to the heart), whereby a small balloon and expandable stent ("scaffolding") is inserted across blockages in the coronary arteries to restore blood flow. This procedure is also the most efficient method of treating heart attacks.
Following his appointment in 2003 Dr Brull played an integral part in setting up the Primary PCI Service based at Heart Hospital UCLH. This now provides immediate access and round the clock treatment for heart attack patients throughout North and Central London.
In addition to his work in the field of coronary artery disease, Dr Brull has recently established a specialist perioperative risk assessment clinic for patients prior to elective general and bariatric surgery, working with a large multi-disciplinary team in order to reduce perioperative risk.
Dr Brull has published widely in a large number of peer reviewed journals, particularly in the field of cardiovascular genetics and on the recovery from cardiac surgery.
