Prof David Hildick-Smith

Consultant Cardiologist


Specialises in

I am an Interventional Cardiologist of National and International renown. My particular fields of expertise include coronary angioplasty and stenting, transcatheter aortic and mitral valve interventions, and closure of PFOs, ASDs, paravalvular leaks and left atrial appendages.

I see a variety of patients, from the "worried well" to those with life-threatening heart conditions. If tests are needed, I will do an electrocardiogram (ECG) or ultrasound scan (Echocardiogram) during the same consultation so that repeat visits are kept to a minimum.

I have been a Consultant Cardiologist at the Sussex Cardiac Centre for over 15 years, a national centre of excellence for cardiovascular care.

I have published over 400 papers on Interventional Cardiology.
