He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge University, St Bartholomew’s and the London Medical School, and the University of London for his PhD.

Dr Saha specialises in the investigation of chest pain, palpitations and shortness of breath from a cardiac perspective. 

Dr Saha also specialises in coronary angiography, complex coronary angioplasty and stent insertion to treat angina and heart attacks.

Furthermore, he can perform coronary angiograms or angioplasty from either the wrist or the groin.

He has expertise in all aspects of general adult cardiology, but in particular, angina, acute coronary syndromes and heart valve disease. He also offers expertise on ECG interpretation, and initiated a regular ECG teaching programme for doctors in the Trust, particularly those working in the acute medical specialties.
