Cardiology treatments

Mr Anderson is an expert cardiologist with many years of experience in treating cardiac conditions. He is committed to providing his patients with the highest standard of care and thus offers patients a comprehensive clinical review, and if required access to a full range of treatments which he delivers to the highest standards. 

Treatments and tests offered include: 

  • Echocardiography
  • Exercise testing
  • Coronary angiography 
  • Intravascular ultrasound within the coronary arteries.
  • Intra-coronary pressure measurements
  • Coronary angioplasty and stenting
  • Transcatheter aortic valve implantation and aortic stenosis management
  • Coronary stenting: complex angioplasty procedures and intracoronary imaging techniques  such as stenting via the radial artery (wrist) route for a more rapid recovery
  • Valvular heart disease: Richard has been involved in starting the TAVI program at University Hospital of Wales in 2010, replacing the aortic valve through a catheter. This enables valve replacement for suitable patients for avoiding open heart surgery

Training and experience

Mr Anderson qualified for his initial medical qualification at the Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1994 where he obtained degrees in medicine and pharmacology. After working in London and Surrey, Mr Anderson returned to Wales where he was appointed Registrar trainee. 

He undertook specialist training in Newcastle, Toulouse and Southampton in coronary angioplasty and coronary angiography. As a result of his extensive training in these areas, Mr Anderson is highly practised in performing these procedures from the wrist, allowing same day discharge for the majority of his patients.  Not soon after, Mr Anderson went on to complete a fellowship with the Royal College of Physicians, allowing him to practice as a senior cardiac surgeon.

Mr Anderson is available at his private cardiology practice at Nuffield Health Cardiff and Vale Hospitals and also the Spire Cardiff Hospital. In addition, he also offers his expertise to the University Hospital of Wales, in Cardiff, and Llandough Hospital where he is consultant cardiologist.
