Dr. Janmohamed was instrumental in the initial set up of the invasive cardiac catheterization laboratory at Peterborough Regional Health Center in Peterborough Ontario.  Subsequently he was recruited to Scarborough in 2003 to aid in the expansion of the cardiac catheterization laboratory as well as establish an invasive cardiac electrophysiology program for the region.  He established an advanced device implantation program and follow-up clinic to the Scarborough and Durham regions.  With his leadership defibrillators and advanced cardiac resynchronization pacemaker implantation were undertaken in Scarborough.  Dr Janmohamed started an invasive cardiac electrophysiology laboratory for the management of arrhythmias and curing them with ablations.

He is the director of the Arrhythmia Services Program at the Scarborough Health Network, a position he has held since the inception of the program. This is a unique program that has undertaken some procedures as the first ones in Ontario or Canada.

Dr. Janmohamed practices out of the Centenary campus of the SHN and the Lakeridge Health Ajax Pickering hospitals. He sees his outpatients at the Heart Health Institute offices in Scarborough and Ajax. He participates in multiple research trials and has led many as a local principal investigator.
