Dr Stuart Butterly is a Clinical and Interventional Cardiologist with Sunshine Coast Heart Specialists, consulting at the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital, and a Staff Specialist Cardiologist at Nambour General Hospital.
Dr Butterly discovered the Sunshine Coast when he rotated to Nambour General Hospital as part of his specialist cardiology training and resolved to return there to live and practice as a Cardiologist once his training was complete.
After graduating from the University of Queensland, Dr Butterly then went on to complete Physician training at the Princess Alexandra Hospital before undertaking advanced training in Cardiology at the Princess Alexandra and Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospitals in Brisbane. He then undertook a year of Interventional Cardiology Fellowship training at the Princess Alexandra Hospital with a further year of training at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, Western Australia. His fellowship training exposed him to a high volume of interventional cardiology procedures including complex cardiac intervention, acute emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (i.e. emergency intervention for heart attack), advanced multimodal coronary imaging, structural heart intervention and novel invasive therapies for resistant hypertension. He performs coronary angiography and interventions by both the trans-femoral and trans-radial routes.
Dr Butterly is a keen researcher, publishing in Australian and international medical journals. He is undertaking a PhD through the University of Queensland investigating patients with acute myocardial injury in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease.
He is committed to providing patient focused, evidence based care for his patients.
