One of the most interesting interviews. We were really blown away by Dr Razeen’s passion for his work and the Quran.
Dr Razeen Gopal, a cardiac electrophysiologist at the Cape Town Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Centre located at Mediclinic Panorama, implanted the world’s smallest smart device to control heart beats and pumping action – a first in the emerging markets region.
Dr Gopal’s unit remains one of the leading centres for management of cardiac arrhythmias on the African continent and he feels that the addition of the new platform of devices is in keeping with the centre’s motto that “with innovation, comes cure”.
The Cape Town AF Centre, as a centre of academic excellence has taken a leading role in the dissipation of knowledge in the discipline of cardiac electrophysiology (both in cardiac ablation and device therapy). Dr Gopal proctors quite broadly, having regularly travelled to the Middle East, Indian Ocean Islands, Namibia and nationally. He runs an extremely popular pacemaker implantation course (Medtronic EBAC/EHRA accredited), which has been attended by hundreds of training cardiologists and qualified specialists from within South Africa and the African continent.
In addition, his avid passion for teaching the ECG has been popularised by the national ECG courses he hosts annually.
