Ross Walker M.D.
Dr Walker brings a wealth of cardiac and general medicine knowledge to our organisation.
Dr Walker has a medical practice in Lindfield on the upper north shore of Sydney. He provides a service in all aspects of echocardiography, focusing on stress echocardiography which is a well-accepted, accurate method for assessing heart disease, not involving irradiation or injections.
Dr Walker commenced stress echocardiography in 1992 and has since performed over 50,000 studies and 80,000 transthoracic echocardiograms. Stress echocardiography provides much more information to the practitioner than stress testing alone.
Dr Walker introduced coronary calcium scoring into Australia in 1999 in conjunction with the Sydney Adventist Hospital.
His other area of expertise is in the field of preventative cardiology, and he has also commenced a related service in arterial screening, which is an indirect measure of endothelial function and arterial stiffness and does not involve irradiation or injections. Dr Walker has published seven bestselling books on preventative cardiology and lectures both nationally and internationally on this subject.
Dr Walker is also a national radio personality and has his own weekly wellness program on national radio. He has been very generous is providing material for us to use and once our fundraising campaigns are developed, will help us promote those and our organisation through his connections.
