Clinical Interests

  • Dr Gray sub-specialises in coronary intervention. He performs all types of intervention from simple angiography from both radial and femoral approaches through to the most complex types of procedures including the super subspecialist area of reopening completely occluded arteries. He is confident in the use of all types of adjunctive investigations and treatments to ensure the best chances of successful treatment outcome including the use of pressure wire, intravascular imaging, coronary atherectomy (rotablation) and shockwave therapy. He successfully brought all of these technologies into the Fairfield Catheter labs, and continues to use them regularly both in the NHS and privately.
    In addition to the interventional work, Dr Gray sees general cardiology patients in outpatients and on the wards. He enjoys the variety from this, and enjoys talking to his patients and explaining options for investigations and treatments best suited to the situation and patient. He is happy to see any patients with cardiology problems or symptoms.
