Dr Alexander Sirker works as a Consultant in Interventional and General Cardiology at UCLH and St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. 

He has specific expertise in coronary angiography, angioplasty and stenting procedures, performing these procedures for UCLH patients at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. Other invasive and interventional procedures undertaken by Dr Sirker include pressure wire studies, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), optical coherence tomography (OCT), rotational atherectomy and implantation of bioresorbable vascular scaffolds. His particular interests in Interventional Cardiology include i) use of the radial artery (at the wrist) for ‘keyhole’ access in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and ii) complex coronary interventions, including treatment of bifurcation disease, calcified lesions and diseased bypass grafts. 

He also has a strong interest in clinical risk reduction and is now the site lead at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital for implementation of the new National Safety Standards for Invasive Procedures across all medical specialities.

With his broad background in General Adult Cardiology, Dr Sirker undertakes outpatient clinics at the main University College Hospital site, treating patients with conditions such as coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, high blood pressure and heart failure. 

He also deals with pre-operative cardiac assessment prior to non-cardiac surgery and with cardiovascular risk assessment more generally.

Dr Sirker trained in medicine at the University of Cambridge, graduating with First Class Honours in Physiology in 1994. He was awarded several prizes, an exhibition and three scholarships, then continued training at Cambridge University Clinical School, qualifying as a doctor in 1996 with a triple Distinction in the Final MB examinations.

His specialist training in Cardiology was undertaken at a number of leading cardiac centres, including the Royal Brompton, Harefield, and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals. His specific expertise in Interventional Cardiology was gained at King’s College Hospital, London and during an international fellowship year at the Royal Jubilee Hospital, British Columbia, Canada – a pioneering centre in the use of radial access for angioplasty and stenting.

He has formal national accreditation in echocardiography and has trained in cardiac CT. He is also an accredited specialist in General (Internal) Medicine.

2015- moving to the Barts Heart Centre, St. Bartholomew’s Hospital part time when services were transferred. 

Honours and prizes 

· 1984 Military decoration for courage during National Service. 

· Prizes for cardiovascular research (1) French Federation of Cardiology, (2) The Medical Research Foundation, (3) Lion Heart Honorary Prize for innovation in the field of cardiovascular research. 

· Invited as visiting Professor at (1) the Duke University, North Carolina (2) Pittsburgh University, Pennsilvania (3) Strasbourg University and (3) Paris University. 

Clinical Experience 

· I am a leading consultant cardiologist with 30 years’ experience of cardiology in tertiary referral University hospitals, first

in Paris then in London. 

· My clinical expertise as a Cardiologist covers all aspects of adult Cardiology. I have expertise in heart valve diseases,

myocardial dysfunction, risk reduction of cardiovascular and coronary artery diseases, difficult hypertension, aortic diseases, pre-operative cardiac assessment prior to surgery, and stroke assessment and prevention. Preventative

care is essential in this field. 

Cardiac Diagnostics and Imaging 

· As a specialist in cardiac imaging and diagnostic testing, I am often consulted on difficult diagnoses, the causative

mechanisms and the likely prognosis. 

· I have two accreditations from the European Society of Cardiology and I have performed, interpreted and reported more than 10,000 scans. 

· Echocardiography is part of the standard of care for cardiology patients. Dr Pellerin is highly qualified to perform

ultrasound scans and can perform these in any routine appointment. In my practice all echocardiograms are scanned and reported by myself. This provides swifter and accurate identification of diseases, peace of mind for patients who can ask questions on the spot, and often reduces the need for multiple investigations, avoiding invasive procedures unless necessary. 

Teaching 

I teach undergraduate and postgraduate levels, medical students, and other healthcare professionals. 

Research 

· My research involves working with patients to determine the effectiveness of new techniques and treatments. This includes the ability of cardiac diagnostic tools to provide valuable information to patient care, and clinical trials to determine the best treatments for specific conditions. 

· I published over 75 articles in peer-review journals, 20 cardiology book chapters, and 60 publications in non peer-review

journals. 

· For 20 years ​I have been invited to lecture and chair sessions on many areas of cardiology and cardiac imaging at

international cardiology meetings (>160 invited Lectures and Chairmanships).
