I have been a Consultant Cardiologist for 19 years and therefore have extensive experience in assessing and treating the full range of cardiac conditions. As a general Cardiologist, I manage patients with coronary and valvular heart disease (chest pain, breathlessness and heart murmurs) as well as those presenting with heart rhythm disturbances (palpitations) and heart failure (breathlessness and swelling). As an Interventional Cardiologist, my sub-specialist expertise is in the minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment of cardiac disease.
As an Interventional Cardiologist, I treat patients with coronary heart disease (coronary angiography and coronary angioplasty with stenting), valvular heart disease (TAVI and mitral balloon valvuloplasty) and congenital heart disease (ASD and PFO closure).
I am the Lead Clinician for Structural Heart Disease Intervention at Cardiff and Vale UHB, the tertiary referral centre for South-East Wales.
I was Director of Cardiothoracic Services at Cardiff and Vale UHB 2002-9.
I enjoy spending my leisure time with my wife, family and ageing Labrador dog. We have a shared interest in walking, travelling, sport and music making.
