About

Dr Michael Bellamy is a Consultant Cardiologist based at Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust (Hammersmith), specialising in both Cardiac Imaging/Echocardiography and Interventional Cardiology. He also works at private hospitals in London, including HCA Harley Street Clinic, HSC Diagnostic Centre at 16 Devonshire Street and The Wellington Hospital.

Dr Bellamy undertakes general cardiology clinics, seeing patients with all types of cardiology problems, while jointly leading the Imperial Percutaneous Mitral Valve Programme as well as Valve Clinics and Specialist Echocardiography. He also participates in the on-call rota for the West London Heart Attack Centre based at Hammersmith Hospital, performing emergency PCI (stenting) procedures in addition to elective coronary artery disease work.

He performs a large number of cardiac imaging diagnostic procedures including echo, stress echo (exercise and Dobutamine), transoesophageal echo and 3D valve assessments and is accredited with the British Society of Echocardiography and European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging.

Dr Bellamy attained subspecialty expertise in both echocardiography / imaging and interventional cardiology, having completed his training in London teaching hospitals as well as 2 International Fellowships abroad, the first at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA (valvular heart disease) and St Vincent's University Hospital, Sydney, Australia (interventional cardiology).

He is actively involved in teaching including undergraduates at Imperial College School of Medicine, Imperial MSc programmes and postgraduate Cardiology trainees. Research interests include valve disease and percutaneous mitral valve interventions/MitraClip. He has published a large number of manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and has contributed to book chapters in internationally renowned textbooks.

Dr Bellamy is a very personable physician, whose calm demeanour understates his depth and breadth of both knowledge and skill. His expertise and balanced judgement is often called upon by other expert colleagues in multi-disciplinary meetings. He is a pleasure to work with for the many years that I have and has always had great feedback from patients. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Mike is an excellent cardiologist and excels in echocardiography and coronary intervention. He is particularly skilled in the assessment of valvular heart disease and the percutaneous edge to edge repair of mitral regurgitation. He is the sort of physician I would recommend to my family.
