In our team, we have partnered Cardiologists to complement the existing experiences and created a diverse group of Cardiology subspecialties and expertise, from General Cardiology to Interventional Cardiology to Heart Failure & Transplant.
Our doctors are regularly involved in national and international research, cutting edge procedures and techniques, and are pioneers in their chosen subspecialties. Here are just a few of the ‘firsts’ that our Cardiologists have been involved in:
Performed the first radiofrequency catheter ablation of the ventricular tachycardia in the World, implantation of the first implantable defibrillator in Western Australia, performed the first heart transplant in Western Australia, implantation of the first Heartware ventricular assist (VAD) device in Australia, implantation of the first MRI-safe pacemaker in Western Australia, performed the first Renal Denervation procedure in Western Australia and performed the first Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) in Western Australia.
