Dr Roland Hilling-Smith is an associate with Queensland Cardiovascular Group. He studied medicine at Edinburgh University, Scotland. He trained in general medicine at Fremantle Hospital and cardiology at the prestigious MonashHeart in Melbourne.
Roly has undertaken two interventional fellowships, firstly locally at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. He was then awarded the Chamberlain Scholarship in Advanced Coronary and Structural Intervention at the world renowned Royal Sussex County Hospital, England. During his time there Roly was involved in many international trials and several first-in-man developments.
Roly’s main interest is in clinical cardiology with a focus on coronary and structural intervention. Unusually for an interventional cardiologist, Roly is also trained, accredited and performs cardiac CT giving a unique perspective in the diagnosis, investigation and management of cardiovascular diseases.
Roly performs a wide range of percutaneous interventional procedures including coronary stents, rotablation and chronic total occlusion revascularisation. He performs the full range of structural interventions including TAVI, PFO / ASD closure, percutaneous treatments of aortic and mitral valves, left atrial appendage occlusion and renal denervation amongst others.
Roly recently joined St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital and is also a proud member of the Heart of Australia project providing cardiovascular care to regional Queensland.
