Dr Saha is a fully trained UK Consultant Cardiologist (Heart Specialist), based in Cheltenham and Gloucester.  He was appointed as a consultant in 2010 and was clinical lead in the Cardiology Department at Gloucestershire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. He now performs his complex coronary angiogram and angioplasty (stent ) procedures in both Gloucestershire, and the Cleveland Clinic London.

He trained at Trinity College, Cambridge University, Barts Hospital, and St Thomas's Hospital.  He was awarded a prestigious British Heart Foundation research fellowship during his time at St Thomas's that culminated in a PhD in Cardiovascular Medicine, awarded by the  University of London in 2010.

He specialises in the investigation and management of all aspects of Adult Heart Disease, but in particular the management of Angina (chest pains), Palpitations,Dizzy Spells, Blackouts, Heart Valve Problems, High Blood Pressure, and Shortness of Breath. He also offers a "One Stop" Cardiac Screening Service,  which includes a private echo scan service, and a "heart MOT".

His specialist skills include treating coronary artery disease with angioplasty (stent insertion), both in emergencies when a patient is having heart attack, but also in an elective setting. The vast majority of these procedures are done through the radial artery (in the wrist) as opposed to the femoral artery (in the groin). He was instrumental in bringing the highly specialised Rotapro and Shockwave systems to Gloucestershire Hospitals, and was the first cardiologist in Gloucestershire to use these systems to treat the arteries of patients with heavily calcified heart arteries.
