Dr Schlosshan is a consultant cardiologist with special interest in cardiac imaging and heart valve disease. He is clinical lead for one of the largest echocardiography departments and valve clinics in the UK. He is a key member of the specialist valve team at the Leeds General Infirmary providing advanced imaging for patients with heart valve disease and novel heart valve procedures such as trans-catheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). He participates in clinical trials looking at new technologies to treat heart valve disease.
Dr Schlosshan completed his undergraduate training in Germany and came to the UK in 1997. He completed his training in West Yorkshire and was awarded a MD at the University of Leeds. He spent one year in Sydney/Australia receiving specialist training in echocardiography and cardiac CT. He was appointed consultant cardiologist in Leeds in 2010.
Dr Schlosshan’s clinical interest lies in the investigation and prompt diagnosis of patients with:
- Chest pain
- Heart murmurs
- Bicuspid aortic valve disease
- High blood pressure
- Management of heart valve disease (diagnosis, treatment and timing of surgery)
He believes in open discussion and informed choice. He takes his time to listen to the patients' concerns and explain all aspects of their management.
Dr Schlosshan specialises in the following treatments, tests and scans at Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital:
- Heart Valve Disease
- Cardiac imaging
- Stress Echo
- Transoesophageal echocardiography
- Cardiac CT
Cardiac imaging with focus on echocardiography and transoesophageal echocardiography and cardiac CT.
Dr Schlosshan is married to a local general practitioner. He enjoys spending time with his three daughters. He is also a keen runner, especially 10 Km races and enjoys swimming.
