Dr Clarkes’ subspecialty interest is interventional cardiology including both acute and elective cases.

Procedures are predominantly undertaken via the radial artery in the wrist but can be undertaken via the femoral artery in the groin, if required. She undertakes complex cases and is trained and has expertise in chronically occluded arteries and heavily calcified arteries (often treated with a device known as a rotablator- a small rotating drill). She uses all available modalities of assessment of coronary narrowings including intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), optical coherence tomography (OCT) and pressure wire studies.
Dr Clarke is patient focused giving patients the time they need during consultations to ensure all questions/concerns are addressed and a full explanation of test results and the management plan are given. She is easily contactable through her PA at all times.
Fees are available on request. She is fee assured for BUPA patients.
