I would like to thank Dr Wilkinson for saving my life, with his amazing team, last July 2020 at Southampton University Hospital. He correctly and intuitively recognised the gravity of my symptoms relayed to him whilst on call, he traveled from his home to SUH in the middle of the night, summoned his Cath lab team and with extraordinary skill managed to stent and restore flow to a coronary artery occluded by a replacement aortic valve I had had surgery for two weeks earlier. His positive and caring manner will remain with me for as long as I live. I cannot recommend him more highly. MCH

Profile

Dr James Richard Wilkinson is a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist (heart specialist) based at Southampton and Lymington. He previously did procedure lists at Salisbury (2011-2014). His particular area of expertise is Coronary Intervention. He regularly treats heart attack patients as well as more stable patients. This involves fixing the arteries that supply your heart with small balloons and metal scaffolds called 'stents'. He specialises in doing this through the artery in the wrist (radial artery) as it is safer and more comfortable for patients. He has a particular interest in opening arteries that have been blocked a long time (chronic total occlusions). He also has a specialist interest in a specialist procedure to treat high blood pressure (called renal denervation) and has set up this new service in Southampton. He also inserts pacemakers and does angiograms. In addition to his procedure lists he also see's patients in clinic for evaluation of any symptoms that could be due to heart disease such as: breathlessness, chest pain, palpitations and blackouts. He is particularly interested in angina and new procedures to help this. He participates in a busy on-call rota for Southampton's heart attack service and does ward rounds. A majority of his work is NHS but he does see some patients privately at Southampton and Lymington. He participates in local research and education on a national level. NHS secretary: 023 8120 5918. Private secretary: 023 8076 4333 Website: www.cardiology.co.uk
