Areas of Specialty and Focus:
Dr Jeremy Chow graduated with Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from the National University of Singapore in 2001. He completed his basic specialist training in Internal Medicine and obtained the Master of Medicine in Internal Medicine from the National University of Singapore in 2006. In the same year, he was admitted as Member to both the Royal College of Physicians of United Kingdom and the Royal College of Physicians of London.
Dr Chow is a certified cardiologist since 2010 upon completion of his advanced specialist training in Cardiology at Changi General Hospital and National Heart Centre of Singapore. He was awarded a scholarship from the Ministry of Health, Singapore under the Health Manpower Development Plan for further specialisation in cardiac implantable electronic devices and electrophysiology in Germany. He completed his fellowship under the mentorship of Dr Johannes Sperzel, a leading cardiac electrophysiologist in Kerckhoff Klinik, Bad Nauheim. Dr Chow sub- specialized in complex cardiac device management including cardiac resynchronization therapy, complex lead management and extractions, electrophysiology and ablations including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. During his fellowship, he was involved in the research and application of numerous state-of- the-art device implantations and ablations.
Dr Chow is a highly skilled cardiologist and cardiac electrophysiologist. He performed all his diagnostic coronary angiography via radial approach including complex coronary intervention. He has also performed numerous electrophysiology studies and ablations with both radiofrequency and cryotherapy including atrial fibrillation. He is also a very experienced implanter for cardiac implantable electronic devices. This includes all pacemakers and defibrillators (ICD) of which more than 120 were cardiac resynchronization therapy devices (CRT-D). In particular, Dr Chow has vast experience with implanting the state-of- the art multipolar left ventricular lead for cardiac resynchronization therapy and in managing complex cardiac device upgrades and lead extractions.
Prior to his current appointment as a Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at Gleneagles Hospital, Mt. Elizabeth Hospital and Mt.Elizabeth Novena Hospital, Dr Chow held the position of Consultant Cardiologist in Changi General Hospital and is a Visiting Consultant at the National Heart Centre, Singapore. He was also a Clinical Lecturer at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore from 2006 till 2013. He is currently still a Visiting Consultant with National University Hospital Singapore.
Dr Chow has vested interest in clinical research and has made significant contributions to cardiology education and training. His publications and presentations ranged from interventional cardiology to cardiac electrophysiology and complex cardiac device management. He was the first Singaporean to be interviewed by theHeart.org, the leading clinical cardiology website, for his research on trans-radial coronary intervention in ST elevation myocardial infarction in Asian during the 32 nd Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) annual scientific meeting. He is also reviewer in numerous high impact cardiology journals and continues to share his experience and knowledge as speaker during numerous international and local cardiology meetings.
He is currently a member of the Singapore Medical Association, Singapore Cardiac Society, and Fellow of the Academy of Medicine, Chapter of Cardiologists. He is also a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology and ASEAN College of Cardiology and an active member in numerous international associations including the Heart Rhythm Society, European Heart Rhythm Association and Asian-Pacific Heart Rhythm Association . He is currently a Certified Cardiac Device Specialist (CCDS) by the Heart Rhythm Society, USA.
Dr Chow also has special interest in the management of atrial fibrillation and stroke prevention and is participates actively as a member of Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation (SPAF) association. His other clinical interests include the management of supraventricular tachycardias and outflow tract ventricular tachycardias as well as cardiac device management for symptomatic bradycardias and sudden cardiac death prevention.
