Dr Ernest Ng is a Consultant Cardiologist with a special interest in interventional cardiology as well as the management of heart rhythm abnormalities. He graduated from Leicester Medical School, United Kingdom in 1996. He completed his general medical training in the Midlands before specialising further in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology at the Glenfield Hospital, Leicester.
On his return to Malaysia in 2004, he served at Penang General Hospital and furthered his training in interventional cardiology. At Serdang Hospital in 2006, he helped to develop the first electrophysiology service in the Ministry of Health, Malaysia. He later joined Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur in 2009 as a resident cardiologist.
Dr Ernest Ng’s area of expertise is in complex coronary intervention (angiography and stenting) in patients with severe coronary disease. In addition, he specialises in the management of patients with cardiac arrhythmia, who may experience palpitations, dizziness, or blackouts. He is experienced at performing cardiac electrophysiology studies & radiofrequency ablation as a treatment for arrhythmia, and is also skilled in device therapy such as the implantation of pacemakers in patients with conduction disease (heart block), implantable defibrillators in patients at high risk of sudden cardiac death, & cardiac resynchronisation therapy in patients with heart failure.
Dr Ernest Ng has contributed to the field of cardiology and is regularly involved in medical education of nurses and doctors. He was part of the committee which developed the first Malaysian clinical practice guideline (CPG) for atrial fibrillation in 2012.
