Dr Mokhtar Ibrahim is an internationally trained consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist practising in Leicester. He specialises in many cardiac conditions, like syncope and atrial fibrillation, and treatments such as pacemakers, device implants, and ablation. In addition, Dr Ibrahim has an expertise in sports cardiology.
In 2005, Dr Ibrahim received his medical qualification from Ain Shams University in Egypt. He continued to receive speciality training in cardiology until 2014 when he was appointed as a consultant cardiologist at the university hospital in Cairo. In 2016, Dr Ibrahim relocated to the UK where he subsequently undertook a two year advanced clinical fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology and devices at the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital.
As of 2019, Dr Ibrahim has been working as one of the few cardiologists in the UK who have European accreditation in both cardiac electrophysiology and devices. He achieved this by completing the required exams and the required number of cases by the European Heart Rhythm Association. This expertise allows him to perform more than 250 procedures per year including (but not limited to): radiofrequency ablation procedures for different cardiac arrhythmias; device implantation such as pacemakers, cardiac resynchronization therapy and implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD); and HIS-bundle pacing, which is a novel technology in permanent cardiac pacing for heart failure.
Dr Ibrahim held the position as co-principal investigator on two research studies, and continues to do research when possible. In addition, he has had multiple published works in peer-reviewed journals. Dr Ibrahim has also presented at meetings in Egypt, the UK, and internationally. Over the years, he has regularly taken continuous professional development courses in topics such as cardiac specialities and management and leadership skills. Dr Ibrahim has taught previously at Ain Shams University Hospitals, and he continues to hold teaching posts for future cardiology surgeons at Imperial College London.
