Dr Munmohan Singh Virdee is a leading cardiologist and electrophysiologist based in Cambridge, UK. He specialises in cardiac electrophysiology, performing device implants and catheter ablations for all types of cardiac arrhythmias, including for atrial fibrillation. He has a particular expertise in implanting biventricular pacemakers and defibrillators that deliver cardiac resynchronisation therapy for heart failure, and device extraction.

Dr Virdee graduated in 1994 from the medical school of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals, having also intercalated a BSc in Radiological Sciences in 1991. He trained as a junior doctor on London's prestigious golden circuit, before becoming a BHF research fellow at St George’s Hospital.
