What is External Counterpulsation Therapy?
External Counterpulsation Therapy (ECP) is a safe, effective, non-invasive treatment that improves endothelial function. ECP is also know as External Enhanced Counterpulsation® (EECP). ECP improves cardiovascular function and can be used to treat angina, microvascular angina and heart failure. In some patients it can be an alternative to open heart surgery.
The ECP Clinic is the only clinic in London offering this ground breaking treatment. Our experienced team, led by Senior Cardiologist Dr Robin Roberts MBBS FRCP, have been treating patients with this therapy for more than 12 years

How can ECP therapy benefit you?
ECP is a powerful treatment that improves many aspects of Cardiovascular Health. The European society of Cardiology recommended ECP therapy for use in angina based on a review of over 250 published scientific papers and the long-term evidence of the benefits of the therapy. ECP is widely used in the USA, China and other parts of the world to successfully treat cardiac disease. ECP can treat angina, microvascular angina and heart failure. In some patients it can be an alternative to open heart surgery. It also has effects on many parts of the body in addition to the heart and works at the microscopic level on the lining of all blood vessel ( the endothelium). ECP is used in Sports Performance and can improve health outcomes in a variety of other conditions.

How ECP Therapy works
"ECP has changed my life completely. I can now live independently. I no longer feel vulnerable that I live alone."
The First Clinic in Central London offering ECP therapy
Chest pain (angina) seriously affects quality of life. It can persist despite angioplasty, open heart (bypass) surgery and maximal drug therapy. In microvascular angina (Cardiac Syndrome X) the large blood vessels in the heart are normal but chest pain continues, limiting daily activities of life, medication may not help. ECP can reduce or remove chest pains.
Many UK doctors are not aware of ECP therapy. It is widely available in the USA including in the world famous Cleveland and Mayo Clinics.
