I am an experienced consultant cardiologist / interventional cardiologist working at Arrowe Park Hospital and Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital, in addition to Spire Murrayfield Hospital.

I also look after patients with heart failure / cardiomyopathy, hypertension, heart valve disease, athlete’s heart, use of blood thinners and all kinds of heart rhythm disturbances including Atrial Fibrillation. I take keen interest in advising on primary / secondary prevention in cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke prevention).

I sub-specialise in interventional cardiology and have special expertise in medical treatment of chest pain / angina / heart attack, and do both non-invasive and invasive assessment. Additionally I am expert in all sorts of simple / complex percutaneous coronary interventions (balloon angioplasty + stenting to coronary arteries), and make appropriate referrals for coronary artery bypass surgery.

I have done >10,000 percutaneous cardiac procedures including coronary angiogram, right heart catheterisation, graft study, simple / complex angioplasty, intra-coronary imaging, pressure wire assessment, rotablation / Laser / cutting balloon, thrombectomy, myocardial biopsy, Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump insertion, temporary pacing wire, pericardiocentecis etc.
