About Us

Dr Pauriah graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne medical school. He completed MBBS with distinction in 1999. This was followed by training in General Medicine in Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trusts. He them embarked on General Cardiology training in Merseyside. As a Translational Medicine Research Collaboration, he pursued research at the University of Dundee.

He then pursued subspecialty training in basic electrophysiology in Liverpool. For complex ablations, he underwent training in two leading European centres Nancy, France followed the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, the largest cardiothoracic centre in Europe.

Dr Pauriah set up complex ablations at the Bons Secours Hospital. In May 2015, he joined the Mater Private Hospital, Mahon Point, Cork.
