Peter sees patients with all types of conditions affecting the heart. Peter is a pioneer in interventional cardiology, the specialised field of cardiology dealing with the treatment of blockages in the arteries and stents. In 2009 he introduced a new imaging technique into Australia. This method, called optical coherence tomography (OCT) uses laser light to scan inside the arteries of the heart and spot areas of disease, cholesterol plaques and is the best method to assess stents in the arteries. Peter leads national and international clinical trials and continues to attract considerable funding to head the cardiovascular innovations research team at the University of Melbourne.
He has published more than 130 peer reviewed journal articles, is the editor / author of more than 5 textbooks and frequently features in the media discussing new developments in the treatment of heart disease. Peter is also actively involved in community and public health including being a Board Director of the Mental Health Foundation Australia (https://www.mhfa.org.au) and the East Timor Heart Fund (https://easttimorheartsfund.org.au) and Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Peter takes a holistic approach to the treatment of cardiac conditions in a kind and professional manner. For further information or to make an appointment please contact the main office on 03 9928 6370.
