About Dr Jim (James) Stewart
Dr Stewart did his undergraduate training in New Zealand (Otago University), and his postgraduate specialist training, including a doctoral thesis, in the United Kingdom. He worked successively at St George's Hospital, Royal Brompton Hospital and St Thomas' Hospital, all in London, as a cardiology trainee from 1986 to 1993. He spent one year (1994) at the Montreal Heart Institute, before returning to New Zealand to a consultant post in interventional cardiology at Green Lane Hospital, Auckland in 1995 (Auckland City Hospital since 2003). Dr Stewart has been in private practice in Auckland since 1998.
Although his main interest is in the field of catheter-based cardiovascular intervention, he is also a firm believer in the importance of preventive medicine, and the control of risk factors for atherosclerosis such as dyslipidaemia and hypertension.
