Successful outcomes for our patients

We are proud of our outstanding safety and survival rates when benchmarked against national and international results, and we have a longstanding commitment to recording, auditing and submitting our data. It is a reflection of our dedicated and experienced cardiac team, that for three years running our 99.5% success rate has been above the national average of 97.2%.

The latest interventional techniques and procedures

Our interventional cardiology techniques use minimally invasive treatment, including Trans catheter Aortic Valve Implantations (TAVI) and closure of ASD/PFO for patients at risk of stroke. Our coronary diagnostics include angiography, IVUS, OCT and fractional flow reserve studies.

Our coronary intervention procedures include angioplasty, stents, Rotablation and Chronic total Occlusions (CTOs).

Providing the future in heart attack prevention

Heart attacks can affect men and women of all ages but if you have a family history of heart disease or have a heart condition yourself you may be feeling anxious about being at an increased risk. 

At The Wellington Hospital we offer patients CaRi-Heart®, developed to detect underlying risks of possible heart disease. The technology works by accurately measuring the amount of inflammation of blood vessels in and around your heart and identifying any arteries which are at an increased risk of becoming blocked or narrowed.

The results from our CaRi-Heart® analysis will show you whether you’re at an increased risk. For those patients who receive a troubling result, you will then be recommended to one of our cardiologists, to receive a personalised prevention and management plan.
