PROF PHILIP MACCARTHY

BSc MBChB(Hons) PhD FRCP
Consultant Cardiologist

map markerLondon

I have a keen interest in how the coronary arteries function on a cellular level and how this can be applied to cardiology. Knowing this gives me the edge not only in the treatment, but prevention of coronary heart disease.

MEDSTARS SAYS

Prof MacCarthy's active research program and leading cardiology expertise makes him an excellent choice for the patient seeking a London based cardiologist.

LANGUAGES

I completed my undergraduate training at the University of Bristol, gaining a First Class Honours BSc in 1988 and MBChB with Honours in 1991. my general medical and cardiological training was in Oxford and then at the University Hospital of Wales. In 1996 I was awarded an MRC Clinical Training Fellowship which allowed me to explore my interests in endothelial function and was awarded a PhD by the University of Wales School of Medicine in 2000. I went on to train in coronary intervention at King's College Hospital and attained a BHF Advanced Training Scholarship and a Wellcome Trust Travel Award to fund an International Interventional Fellowship at the OLV Cardiac Centre in Aalst, Belgium. In 2003 I was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist at King's College Hospital and Hon. Senior Lecturer in Cardiology at King's College London School of Medicine. I was responsible for the development of the primary angioplasty service at King's and the lead cardiologist in the very successful trans-catheter aortic valve (TAVI) programme. In 2007, I was appointed Clinical Lead in Cardiology at King's College Hospital and in 2012, Clinical Director of Cardiovascular Services at King's. In 2014 I was promoted to Professor of Interventional Cardiology, King's College London. My specialist areas are cardiovascular risk factor management, ischaemic heart disease (radial (wrist) access diagnostic techniques and percutaneous revascularisation), heart failure, valvular heart disease - in particular Trans-catheter (trans-femoral) aortic valve implantation. Percutaneous PFO/ASD closure I am actively involved in research and my interests include applied coronary physiology, endothelial function, LV haemodynamics and emerging interventional therapy (including trans-catheter valve therapy and primary angioplasty). My research has been published in respected peered reviewed journals including New England Journal of Medicine.
