Dr Mariusz Wolbinski
Peninsula Heart Centre were delighted to offer a unique opportunity to Mariusz Wolbinski to join our team in late 2020 to continue his cardiology practice in the area of interventional and structural heart disease.
PHC is an ever evolving practice and as such, with a young and talented doctor with vast experience in structural heart disease, we saw the opportunity to learn and develop new techniques and technology following his recent training.
A New Zealand trained interventional cardiologist who had the opportunity to work with national leaders in cardiology at Wellington and Waikato Hospitals, he was inspired to undertake an advanced fellowship at Columbia University Medical Centre in New York from 2018 – 2020, focusing on dedicated key-hole heart valve treatments, many of which are still yet to be introduced around the world. With experience working alongside his teachers and mentors, Drs. Susheel Kodali, Vinnie Bapat, Isaac George and internationally renowned Martin Leon, reinforced his interest in innovation, evolving technologies and his desire to work within a team of likeminded cardiologists.
Over his career to date he has honed his skills performing over 1000 coronary artery stenting procedures and 300 trans-catheter aortic valve implants along with other structural heart procedures, as well as being experienced in CT and 3D transoesophageal echo heart imaging and advanced heart failure support. This became the foundation of what we see to be his future contribution to our centre and one we anticipate will be welcomed by the local hospitals, GPs and fellow cardiology community. We are excited to have him share with us and extend our knowledge base offering support to Greg and Vivek in the latest techniques developed internationally. Similarly, he will have opportunities to grow his clinical expertise under guidance and in collaboration with our experienced cardiologists.
Being down to earth and approachable, Mariusz has been warmly welcomed by the medical and nursing staff at Peninsula Private Hospital and he looks forward to extending his availability to incorporate the Mornington and Rosebud areas. It is keenly evident how easily he forms trusting relationships with the patients who are admitted under his care and with whom he has managed as outpatients during general consulting and cardiac testing.
Mariusz has easily adapted and settled into the sunny beachside area of the Mornington Peninsula where he resides. In his spare time, he is eager to learn about the local attractions and visit popular sites we hold so proudly.
Given Mariusz is our newest addition to Peninsula Heart Centre, he has appointments available to provide general cardiology assessments to the local and wider community and offer advice and support to his GP colleagues.
