I have been a consultant cardiologist for 11 years. I specialise in coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease and interventional cardiology. I am the lead clinician for interventional cardiology in Leeds. I run the largest transcatheter aortic valve implantation service in the UK.
I deal with all areas of cardiology but specialise in coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease and interventional cardiology. I perform coronary angiography and angioplasty/stenting. I have performed more transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) than any other cardiologist in the UK, with TAVI outcomes in Leeds far superior to national averages.
I have performed over 5000 coronary angiograms, over 3000 coronary angioplasty/stent procedures and over 800 transcatheter aortic valve implantation procedures during my 15 year career in interventional cardiology.
I am clinical lead for interventional cardiology in Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust. I am lead for transcatheter valve intervention in Leeds.
I am a clinical associate professor at the University of Leeds and have published more than 70 papers in scientific journals.
