Professor Richard Schilling qualified from St Thomas’ Hospital in 1989 and was appointed as a consultant cardiologist at St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London NHS trust in January 2001.

His current practice involves all aspects of electrophysiology and management of cardiac arrhythmia including catheter ablation, implantation of pacemakers and cardiac defibrillators and also cardiac resynchronisation therapy for heart failure patients.

He has a special interest in atrial fibrillation and performs over 200 AF ablations a year using the latest 3D mapping techniques. He is also trained in transoesophageal echocardiogram.

Professor Schilling has a particular research interest in novel arrhythmia mapping and ablation techniques and has 6 research projects in progress at the moment covering topics such as radiation reduction using non-fluoroscopic mapping systems, catheter ablation of coarse AF, catheter maze for cure of permanent AF, new applications of bi-ventricular defibrillators and catheter ablation for patients with adult congenital disease.
