Dr Reginald Liew
Subspecialty: Cardiac electrophysiology- catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias and device implantation
- Dr. Liew is a senior consultant cardiologist with a special interest in cardiac arrhythmias and device implantation practicing at both Gleneagles Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre
- Dr. Liew studied medicine at Cambridge University, UK, and obtained his Bachelor (BA) and Master (MA) degrees in 1994 and 1998, respectively. He undertook his clinical studies at the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals, London, UK and graduated with distinction in 1997, obtaining Bachelor degrees in Medicine and Surgery.

- Dr. Liew is widely recognized both regionally and internationally in the field of heart rhythm problems and was involved in some of the early pioneering clinical studies in the UK validating the use of 3D-mapping systems to treat complex heart rhythm problems. He has mentored many cardiologists in the UK, Singapore and the surrounding region in performing cardiac electrophysiology (EP) procedures and regularly proctors EP cases in neighboring countries.
- Dr. Liew is fully trained in all forms of invasive EP procedures, including catheter ablation using conventional and 3D- mapping systems. He is also fully trained in cardiac device implantation, including cardiac pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices
- With his extensive training in the UK and contributions to research in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology, he was elected Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (FESC) in 2010, Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC) in 2012 and Fellow of the Asean College of Cardiology (FAsCC) in 2014
- Dr Liew has a strong track record in both clinical and translational research and was formerly Deputy Director of the Research and Development Unit at NHCS. His research interests include atrial fibrillation, sudden cardiac death and the use of stem cells in cardiovascular disease. Dr. Liew was awarded the prestigious British Heart Foundation Junior Research Fellowship from 2000 to 2003 and obtained a PhD from Imperial College London for his research on the arrhythmic actions of oestrogens on the heart.
- Dr Liew holds an academic position as Assistant Professor at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore where he continues to teach and mentor medical students.
