Professor James Spratt

BSc MB ChB MD FRCP FESC FACC
I qualified from St Andrews and Manchester universities before training further in Manchester and Edinburgh. Having specialised in cardiology since 1995, I completed a medical doctorate in clinical research (hypertension and heart failure) and have trained in Interventional Cardiology at the University Hospital of Geneva.
I work between Forth Valley and Edinburgh in general cardiology and interventional cardiology where I have an international reputation in complex PCI.
I have one of the largest experiences worldwide of dealing with complex coronary disease and have performed live case demonstrations in major meetings throughout the world (www.incathlab.com).
I have helped to develop and introduce several innovative techniques designed to help patients with complex coronary disease that previously have not had options
As part of developing these techniques I have published many articles and regularly run courses around the world to teach physicians on the identification and treatment of coronary disease. I am delighted to receive referrals Internationally for the assessment and treatment of these patients. In addition I have expertise in the treatment of hypertension and the management of cardiomyopathy.
Research interests: Interventional cardiology, Cardiomyopathy, Cardiac CT.

I enjoy being active and take part in many sports including road and mountain biking, snowboarding and swimming. Reading, watching football, listening to music and spending time with my children makes up the small gap left in the day!
