Jonathan Pitts Crick

Dr Jonathan Pitts-Crick, Consultant, 0117 342 6633

Dr. Jonathan Pitts Crick, D.Phil. FRCP set up the Bristol electrophysiology service in 1990 bringing in his experience from Guy's Hospital and The Hammersmith Hospital (RPMS), London. He introduced RF catheter ablation to the UK that year for the treatment of tachycardia (SVT) and atrial fibrillation and has continued to develop these techniques including cryo-ablation. He has worked extensively with pacemakers and ICDs, from basic electronic and lead design to "expert systems" software, to special surgical techniques (especially hidden implants) and follow-up optimisation. 

In parallel with the hi-tech advances he has developed an integrated "holistic" approach, where mechanical interventions are inappropriate or have already been tried, to restoring physiological function and wellbeing.
