Mr Rana Sayeed was appointed as a Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon at the Oxford Heart Centre in 2007, having completed his training in cardiothoracic surgery at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge with a one-year fellowship at the University of Toronto. He was awarded his PhD in 2005 after three years’ research into the mechanisms of heart disease at the University of Cambridge.
Mr Sayeed offers a broad range of adult cardiac surgical procedures including coronary artery bypass surgery and aortic valve replacement. His particular sub-specialist interest is mitral valve repair (repairing rather than replacing a diseased mitral valve), often in conjunction with tricuspid valve repair or ablation of atrial fibrillation; he has a high rate of repair for degenerative mitral valve disease (mitral valve prolapse).
