Professional statement

With over 20 years of medical experience, Dr Teresa Castiello is a leading cardiologist based in London. She specialises in acquired and inherited cardiomyopathy, heart failure, preventive cardiology and family screening, syncope, hypertension, and cardiac magnetic resonance. Her decade-long career as a cardiologist has highlighted the importance of prevention and early diagnosis, balancing clinical experience and research. Dr Castiello has a holistic approach, taking into account her patients’ physical and mental well-being and their background, putting the person before his/her disease.

Dr Castiello graduated in medicine and surgery with honours from La Sapienza University, Rome in 2001, where she completed her medical and initial cardiology training (MD). In 2009 she specialised in cardiology at the University Campus Bio-Medico, Rome. Between 2009 and 2011 she dedicated her professional and personal time to three humanitarian missions, in Africa and East Jerusalem. Her longest mission was in Sudan where she worked at the Salam Center for Cardiac Surgery, on the outskirts of the Sudanese capital, Khartoum. Here she screened patients with suspected or documented cardiac diseases to select patients suitable for heart surgery. In Kenya, she tested the suitability to create a cardiac surgery unit and provided training to local staff. In East Jerusalem, she proudly collaborated with a children's NGO.

Following her time in Africa, she returned to Italy, where she earned a consultant cardiologist post at San Raffaele, Rome. Having gained almost ten years of medical experience, she then moved to England where she has since been working in all fields of cardiology with a specific focus on her areas of interest and expertise.

Dr Castiello practises at numerous London hospitals. Presently, she leads the heart failure and cardiomyopathy service at Croydon University Hospital as well as performing cardiac MRIs at King's College and St Thomas Hospital.

Thanks to her research commitment, she is leading several clinical trials at Croydon University Hospital, holding the position of a principal investigator. She has also a robust research network nationally and internationally. Since 2018 she has worked as heart failure educational lead (Royal Society of Medicine) for London, which involves organising and teachings for cardiology trainees.

Outside of her clinical duties, Dr Castiello is highly committed to national and international medical societies, namely the European Society of Cardiology, and holds many prestigious memberships and fellowships. She has authored and co-authored peer-review papers and online educational resources.
