"The team and facilities are world-class, offering excellent diagnostics, experienced clinicians and most importantly a friendly, supportive environment, offering patients the best care available."
I am a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at Kingston and St Thomas’ Hospitals. I was previously a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust for five years before moving to my current post. I am trained in all aspects of adult cardiology with a special interest in complex coronary intervention, intravascular imaging and valve disease.
I was educated at Westminster School and subsequently qualified as a doctor from St George's Hospital Medical School, London, in 2006. I entered specialist training in cardiology, where I rotated through a series of prestigious posts in London and on the South Coast. I was successfully awarded a Doctorate of Medicine (MD Res) in recognition of my research at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. My clinically-based project involved investigating the molecular mechanisms contributing to patients having acute heart attacks. I subsequently completed subspecialty training in coronary intervention at the Royal Sussex County and St Thomas' Hospitals.
After completing my training, I was offered an extremely prestigious, fully-funded interventional fellowship at McMaster University, Canada. During my fellowship, I was trained specifically in chronic total occlusions and percutaneous mitral valve intervention (mitraclip).
I treat patients with a variety of symptoms, including chest pain, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, palpitations, breathlessness and blackouts. I organise and perform numerous investigations including ECGs, ambulatory ECG monitoring, echocardiograms, cardiac CT, cardiac MRI as required.
As an interventional cardiologist, I have performed over 1,500 percutaneous coronary interventions. I undertake detailed intracoronary imaging (optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound) and physiological assessments (pressure wire) to guide my decision making and have experience in complex percutaneous coronary interventions including chronic total occlusions, bifurcations and rotational atherectomy. In addition, I have expertise in optical coherence tomography (OCT) from my post-doctoral research which involved investigating the molecular mechanisms contributing to patients having acute heart attacks.
I am actively involved in numerous research projects both locally and internationally. I am an investigator for several cardiovascular research trials. Following my fellowship, I have strong links and ongoing projects with McMaster University, a centre world-famous for large cardiovascular trials and landmark publications. To date, I have presented my research internationally, published in high impact journals and written book chapters.
I am passionate about medical education and am an educational and clinical supervisor to a range of junior doctors. I teach medical students and I provide educational talks to colleagues and local GPs.
