As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

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 ( 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.
