Consultant Cardiologist in Nottingham since 2005. I see patients with any heart related complaints: chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations or blackouts. I have particular expertise in the management of angina with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or angioplasty and stents and the closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) for secondary prevention of stroke.
My main current research interest is the treatment of chronic total occlusions (CTO) of coronary arteries by PCI to relieve angina. I have contributed to several multinational publications in this area and have been a leader in miniaturising arterial access for these procedures via the radial arteries.
I lead the adult congenital heat service in Nottingham and regularly collaborate with colleagues at the East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre in Leicester.
Areas of interest
Chest pain; breathlessness; palpitations; blackouts; angina; atrial fibrillation; hypertension; heart attack; heart failure; interventional cardiology; cardiac rhythm management; adult congenital heart disease
