About Dr Daniel Keene

Dr Daniel Keene is a Consultant Cardiologist at OneWelbeck Heart Health. He is involved in all clinical aspects of general cardiology but his clinical focus is in cardiac electrophysiology and complex devices.

Dr Keene graduated from the University of Manchester in 2009 having received commendations for all his special study modules. In 2013, after completing his foundation years training and core medical training he was appointed a prestigious National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Academic Clinical Fellow post in Cardiology based at Imperial College London.

During this time, whilst completing his cardiology training, he was then awarded a highly competitive British Heart Foundation Clinical Research Training Fellowship to address novel issues in implantable cardiac devices leading to the award of his PhD. Following the award of his PhD, and completion of his general cardiology training he was appointed as an Advanced Clinical Training Fellow in Electrophysiology and Devices. This training opportunity led to the development of advanced skills and accreditation in cardiac electrophysiology and both simple and complex cardiac device implantation, as well as their troubleshooting and follow-up.

He has developed highly specialised skills in the implantation of the subcutaneous ICD (including the use of nerve block for analgesia), undertaking advanced training in interventional CRT techniques for complex device implant procedures and has vast experience in all aspects of conduction system pacing (his bundle pacing and left bundle pacing) for which he is highly regarded internationally for being a high volume implanter, proctor, researcher and educator. He also has built up a considerable experience in cardiac device lead management including complex lead extraction when necessary.

He regularly performs and interprets electrophysiological studies and undertakes the ablation of AVNRT, AVRT, atrial flutter, ventricular ectopy, atrial tachycardia and atrial fibrillation. Outside of work, Dr Keene enjoys traveling when he can and importantly enjoys watching and playing football with his children.

Research Highlights

Dr Keene’s research program includes developing and evaluating novel pacing approaches and device technologies. These include:

  • Pacing for bradycardia
  • Pacing for heart failure
  • Conduction System pacing - including running the largest cardiac devices randomised control trial "PROTECT HF"
  • Development of sensor technology for device based haemodynamic assessment to guide implantable device therapy
  • Mechanisms and treatment of syncope
