Clinical expertise

Dr Neeti Ghali sees patients with suspicion of a rare hereditary connective tissue disorder. She specialises in aortovascular conditions, for example, patients who have had an aneurysm and/or dissection at a young age, without obvious risk factors or a cause. Patients may also be considered if they are concerned about a strong family history of aneurysms.

She works in the highly specialised Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) service assessing patients and families with suspected rare types of EDS including vascular EDS.

She carries out a comprehensive clinical evaluation and genetic investigations using a panel-based approach and provides genetic counselling for patients with complex genetic test results and proven rare connective tissue/aortovascular diagnoses such as Marfan syndrome, Loeys Dietz syndrome and non-syndromic aortopathies.

She is able to support patients in their lifestyle choices in the context of their chronic disease. Lifestyle medicine offers a holistic approach to patient care, focusing on broader factors that impact on individuals’ health and wellbeing, providing a more personalised and preventative medical approach to care


Dr Neeti Ghali graduated from the University of Manchester and went on to train in paediatrics followed by clinical genetics at London teaching hospitals (GSTT, GOSH) as well as completing a research degree at the University of London.

She has been working as a consultant in clinical genetics since 2011 at London North West University Hospitals and as an honorary consultant at Royal Brompton & Harefield hospitals since 2018.

She has a special interest in the impact of lifestyle choices on health. She recently qualified as a lifestyle medicine physician with the aim of supporting patients to prevent or manage certain complications of their underlying chronic condition.


Dr Neeti Ghali has recruited a large number of patients to the Deciphering Developmental Disorders (DDD) study and the 100K genomes project and as a result, published a number of articles on rare paediatric genetic disorders.

Her research interests mainly lie in connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers Danlos syndromes and aortovascular disease. She is co-investigator of the Natural History Exploration or rare EDS types (NEEDS) study established in 2022. She has published many works in this field including first and last author publications.
