Dr Melikian maintains a large clinical practice encompassing all aspects of coronary and structural intervention as well as general cardiology. In parallel with his complex interventional work, he maintains a busy general cardiology practice covering a wide spectrum of pathology with a special emphasis on management of chest discomfort, breathlessness, cardiac arrhythmias, heart failure and heart valve disease. He regularly assesses and treats patients with cardiovascular risk factors and has a special interest in the management of patients with resistant high blood pressure.

He has an international reputation in interventional cardiology specialising in all aspects of coronary intervention in particular complex angioplasty as well as interventional management of myocardial infarction and remains one of the highest volume interventional cardiologists in the UK. He also has an active structural interventional practice regularly closing septal defects such as patent foramen ovale (PFO) as well as a left atrial appendage (LAA) with emphasis on prevention of stroke and TIA. He was instrumental in securing national commissioning for these structural services to King’s College Hospital in 2014 and has set up the Neuro-Cardiac Multidisciplinary Meeting (MDM) with the colleagues from the regional Stroke and Neurology Units at King’s College Hospital which he continues to chair.
