Dr José Luis Zamorano, new head of Cardiology at the Hospital Universitario Sanitas La Zarzuela, is one of the world's leading experts in non-invasive cardiological diagnosis and a clinical reference in the sphere of prevention and early detection of cardiovascular problems. Dr Zamorano is head of Cardiology at the Hospital Ramón y Cajal in Madrid, and has directed the Cardiovascular Institute of the Hospital Clínico San Carlos, also in Madrid. He is an honorary member of the American Society of Echocardiography, a distinction reserved to only 11 non-American specialists throughout the world, and he has been president of the European Echocardiography Association, as well as chairman of the Clinical Guides Committee of the European Society of Cardiology. As of 2013, he already led the cardiological care of patients in the Conde Duque Milenium Medical Centre, a centre of the Hospital Universitario Sanitas La Zarzuela campus.

His incorporation in the Cardiology department of the Hospital Universitario Sanitas La Zarzuela guarantees that the care the centre is providing to patients will continue to be excellent. "We are delighted that Dr Zamorano is leading our Cardiology department. We are certain that our patients will benefit from his experience, his knowledge and his concern for putting the latest techniques and technologies at the service of people and their cardiovascular health", explained Ricardo de Bedoya, managing director of the Hospital Universitario Sanitas La Zarzuela.

Dr José Luis Zamorano is an unmistakable reference in the application of technology to prevent the onset of cardiovascular disorders and has developed intensive research on the use of new technologies to increase the precision and safeness of diagnostic equipment. Furthermore, he is director of the Professorship of Heart Failure of the Universidad de Alcalá. "Heart disease is the number one cause of death in Spain. Therefore, it is not just doctors and health authorities who must concern ourselves with solving this situation; patients must also start to play their part, through health education, to know the risk factors of heart disease and be able to avoid them, and even to know their specific risk profile and provide the means to treat potential heart disease before it arises. It is key to act before the onset of the disease. What is more, today, we have all the technology that allows us to detect cardiovascular situations before the symptoms are evident", indicated the specialist.

The European Society of Echocardiography rewarded his long-standing work with an award in its recent conference, held in Seville a few weeks ago. They recognised his contribution to the development and consolidation of technological advances in echographic diagnosis. Dr Zamorano participates actively in over 40 research projects the objective of which is to extend the clinical efficiency of diagnostic tests in order to offer patients a more accurate and sure medical opinion, and to be able to act in this way in the field of prevention of heart disease. The specialist is the author of 20 books as editor, over 300 articles in scientific journals and more than 400 communications in renowned national and international conferences in the field of cardiology. Moreover, he is a member of the editorial board of all the scientific journals within his specialism, including the Revista Española de Cardiología (Spanish Cardiology Journal) and the European and American echocardiography journals.
