Dr Michael Stewart
MB ChB MRCP
I qualified as a consultant cardiologist and general physician in September 2003, having trained at the Wessex Cardiothoracic Centre, Southampton and at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London. In 2005 after 21 years in the Royal Navy, I became an NHS consultant in Portsmouth. My NHS practice covers all aspects of general cardiology with extensive experience in invasive and non invasive investigations.
My main interests include the assessment and treatment of structural heart disease, ischaemic heart disease, familial cardiac disease and cardiovascular risk factors. My NHS work extends into my private practice where I consult for all aspects of general cardiology (including chest pain, heart murmurs and valvular disease, palpitations, dizziness and blackout, shortness of breath, heart failure and hypertension).
I am a Director and currently Treasurer of the Portsmouth Cardiac Associates, which offers cardiac services to general practices and private organisations.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Michael Stewart at Spire include:
Royal College of Physicians (London)
British Cardiovascular Society
British Society of Echocardiography
I have completed research and has published articles into the investigation and management of Pulmonary Embolism.
I am married with two sons (16 and 18). My eldest son is following in dad's footsteps by training in medicine at Oxford University, and my youngest is a keen sportsman. My wife is a Community Midwife and we live in Denmead.
A previous keen sportsman, I now take a more passive role in participation but keep fit with regular gym sessions. My leisure interests include watching rugby; I am a keen dinghy sailor and enjoy classical music. I also provide a free family taxi service ferrying my sons to sports and music activities.
