Background

  • Dr Reginald Liew is a cardiologist practising at Gleneagles Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, Singapore. He has special interests in cardiac electrophysiology (EP), cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) and device implantation.
  • Dr Liew received his cardiology training at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, UK and subspecialty training in cardiac arrhythmias at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital and St. George’s Hospital. He received his UK Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in 2008 and was a consultant cardiologist at the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) in 2008 and senior consultant in 2012. With his training and contributions to research in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology, Dr Liew was elected Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (FESC) in 2010 and Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC) in 2012.
  • Dr Liew is trained in various cardiac EP procedures, such as catheter ablation (radiofrequency energy that rectifies abnormal heart rhythm) using conventional and 3D-mapping systems. He is also trained in cardiac device implantation, such as cardiac pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) devices.
  • Dr Liew has been active in the field of heart rhythm problems. He was involved in some of the early pioneering clinical studies in the UK that validated the use of 3D-mapping systems to treat heart rhythm problems. He has also mentored several cardiologists in the UK, Singapore and the surrounding region in performing cardiac EP procedures and regularly proctors EP cases in neighboring countries.
  • As a former deputy director of the Research and Development Unit at NHCS, Dr Liew has been actively involved in clinical and translational research. His research interests include atrial fibrillation, sudden cardiac death and the use of stem cells in cardiovascular disease. Dr Liew was awarded the British Heart Foundation Junior Research Fellowship from 2000 – 2003 and obtained a PhD from Imperial College London, UK for his research on the arrhythmic actions of oestrogens on the heart.
  • Dr Liew is currently the associate editor for the journal Heart and the ASEAN Heart Journal. He is also a member of the research committee for the Singapore Heart Foundation and the basic science committee of the Asian Pacific Heart Rhythm Society.
  • Dr Liew is an assistant professor at the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore where he teaches and mentors medical students. He is the course organiser for the cardiovascular component of the first year normal body course.
