WA Cardiology

Interventional Cardiologist

Clinical and Interventional Cardiologist at WA Cardiology, Perth, Australia. I have admitting and procedural rights at the Mount Hospital and St John of God Murdoch and Bunbury hospitals, and regularly perform coronary angiography, left and right heart catheterization, complex coronary interventions including bifurcation lesions, rotational atherectomy, ostial lesions, and vein graft interventions. I also have an interest in structural heart interventions including Patent Foramen Ovale closure, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation, and Left Atrial Appendage Closure.

I also maintain an avid interest in echocardiography, and I am responsible for the sonographer teaching and echocardiography quality program at WA Cardiology.

Vancouver General Hospital (VGH)

Interventional Cardiology Fellow

VGH is a Major tertiary referral center in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This fellowship offers excellent exposure to a great variety of complex coronary and structural cardiac interventions, including ostial, bifurcation, vein graft, and calcified lesions. 

In my fellowship, I got the opportunity of regular use of FFR, OCT, and IVUS through both radial and femoral approaches as well as CTO interventions, and structural procedures including PFO closure and transcatheter aortic valve implantation(TAVI).

Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH)

Cardiology Advanced Trainee

GCUH is a major teaching and referral center for cardiology in southeast Queensland, Australia. My training includes working in a busy cardiac catheterization laboratory, assisting in PCI, regular reporting and scanning sessions in the echocardiography laboratory, and weekly training in exercise and dobutamine stress echocardiography.

The Prince Charles Hospital (GCUH)

Cardiology Advanced Trainee

The Prince Charles Hospital is the major quaternary, referral cardiac center in the state of Queensland. The first rotation is in the Echocardiography laboratory, which is a great learning experience in the largest echocardiography laboratory in Australia. The rotation offers a superb exposure to all modalities of echocardiography including stress echo, contrast, and strain imaging. The second rotation is in the electrophysiology department. The rotation provides a wealth of training in the management of arrhythmias in a complex quaternary center.
