Angina/Chest Pain

OCT5Dr Robinson is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of chest pain. There are many causes of chest pain but one is angina. This symptom may be felt as a tightness or gripping sensation in the chest, arms or neck which often develops with exercise. The symptom is associated with smoking, diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia and physical inactivity. Investigations may include a coronary angiogram, CT scan, nuclear perfusion scan, cardiac MRI or specialised echocardiogram. Treatment involves medication, coronary stent insertion or coronary bypass surgery.
