Apex Grassmarket Hotel

31 – 35 Grassmarket




We are delighted to welcome Dr Firas Al -Janabi to FOCUS.  Dr Firas is new to the world of insurance and is enthusiastic to come along and present to what will be a different audience for him. He has a keen interest in teaching and training and recently becoming an Insurance CMO brings with it the chance to look at medicine from a different angle.

He will share experiences of Interventional Cardiology, provide insights on new technology and techniques that are constantly developing, and how treatment is really making a difference to so many people. He will also cover off diagnostic testing and the results Cardiologists commonly use.

Dr Firas will also briefly discuss the evolving field of structural Cardiology, where keyhole surgery can now treat procedures that were previously only treated by open heart surgery alone.  Finally, he will share exciting updates of his specialist interest over the past 3 -4 years, which is Renal Denervation, a procedure to treat resistant hypertension.
