Member of:

European Society of Cardiology

Dr Fahad Alnouri, MD, MSc, FESC, FACC has graduated with an MSc in Preventive Cardiology, with merit for his dissertation, from the Imperial College London 2009. Upon completion of his degree and return to Riyadh, Dr Alnouri set up the first-ever Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation Unit within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The unit's outpatient clinic is unique in that it is designed to deal with patients and their families, and each patient is seen by a team headed by Dr Alnouri, a dietician, a physical activity specialist, a clinical pharmacist and a health educator nurse at their initial visit. Dr Alnouri’s area of interest is Familial Hypercholesterolaemia since it is an underdiagnosed and undertreated disease which has a high prevalence in Saudi Arabia. Dr Alnouri’s unit is responsible for the diagnosis of Monogenic Familial Hypercholesterolaemia patients either phenotypically or genotypically and treating them with lipid-lowering drugs or lipoprotein apheresis.
