About Us | Dr Mark Ali | Private Harley Street Clinic

Dr Mark Ali

BSc (Hons), MBBS, FRCS (Eng), FRCS CTh, CEO and Medical Director

Dr Mark Ali qualified MBBS from University College Hospital School of Medicine in 1989 and was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1993.  He was accepted onto the prestigious London Pan Thames Surgical Rotation Scheme in 1995 and upon completion, was accredited on the GMC specialist register as a cardiothoracic surgeon and was created a Specialist Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2002.  In that same year, he was appointed as a consultant at La Pitie Salpetriere, in Paris. He was appointed as a consultant in the NHS in 2004 and has been a consultant in private practice since 2009. He continues to be an honorary consultant in Paris. 

Dr Ali completed an intercalated BSc in immunology and molecular biology in 1983 whilst he was a medical student at University College. This was the start of a lifelong interest in the field of molecular medicine, at a time when few appreciated what would become possible. It soon became clear to him that the advances in medical science, and the technology that surrounded it, would create an opportunity to change our approach to diagnosis and treatment. Indeed, the clinic has just launched its affordable whole genome test for clients which is provided by the world’s most advanced DNA sequencer, the NOVASEQ 6000.

In 2009, he created the Private Harley Street Clinic with the philosophy that it would embrace the most innovative technology across every discipline to deliver his vision of preventative medicine. He began, actively, to seek out those advances in technology that had the potential to advance this ambition even if it was not yet available and worked with industry to refine and develop the technology. The resulting symbiosis of the technical, medical and molecular advances allowed him to create the Liferisk Assessment, the world's most advanced evaluation of the major, organic threats to life namely, cancer, heart disease and strokes. The cornerstone of this assessment is the world’s first high-definition, low dose CT scanner that delivers definitive answers about your medical future and allows you to make informed decisions about your health and well-being.

The clinic also offers a range of life-enhancing treatments and collaborated with other acclaimed experts in the developing fields of rejuvenation and stem cell therapy.  Dr Ali continues to seek other ways of harnessing advances in technology to this vision and, currently, is looking at how combining advanced bio-mechanical testing with proprioceptive training can improve elite sports performance. 

Dr Ali continues to be the clinic’s Responsible Officer, overseeing clinical governance and clinical excellence. The Private Harley Street Clinic will continue to lead in the field of preventative medicine and all staff, are required to undertake rigorous, continuing training and education in order that all who work with our patients stay abreast of scientific and technological innovation at a time of unprecedented medical advances. Dr Ali has a degree in Immunology and Molecular Biology which enables him to distil and critique the very best solutions in the COVID-19 era.

Consultations with Dr Ali are by prior appointment only and start at £350. Please refer to our cancellation policy for further information.
