    He has worked as a Consultant since 2008, based at the Barts Heart Centre and the Royal Free Hospital, London and he also sees patients privately at a number of locations.

    Dr Smith sees patients across the spectrum of General Cardiology including chest pain syndromes, hypertension, heart failure, arrhythmia and valve disease.

    His specialist area of interest is in the investigation and management of coronary artery disease. He is an Interventional Cardiologist performing Coronary Angiography and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention procedures. His sub specialist focus is in Complex Coronary Interventional techniques including Rotational Atherectomy and the minimally invasive treatment of longstanding arterial blockages (Chronic Total Occlusions - CTOs). He leads the Complex Coronary Revascularisation Program at Barts, and is recognised internationally as an expert in this area. He regularly travels to Hospitals in Europe, Asia and the Middle East training other cardiologists to perform these procedures, and participates in major conferences and live case demonstrations world wide.

    Dr Elliot Smith takes great care to listen to you and then to explain his diagnosis. He was excellent when he had to spend a lot of time roto-blading out my coronary artery before inserting stents, regularly checking how I was doing and telling me what was happening. The results were great of course. Two years later I decided to contact him for a consultation because of similar symptoms and he was once again very attentive and helpful in his explanations. Safe hands.
