Dr Nay Htun undertook his cardiology advanced training at the Alfred Hospital, Melbourne, after which he spent two dedicated years at St Paul’s Hospital, Vancouver, Canada which is a premiere centre for complex coronary and structural heart interventions.
Since his return to Melbourne, Dr Nay Htun has been practising as a general and interventional cardiologist both in public (Alfred Hospital, Frankston Hospital) and private settings. He sees adult patients with all cardiology issues and performs coronary angiogram/ stents as well as structural heart interventions (TAVI, ASD/PFO closures, LAA occlusion, Percutaneous mitral valve interventions, Alcohol septal ablation for HOCM, etc).
He is also a clinician scientist. His PhD was awarded by Monash University for his research focusing on detecting vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques which were at high risk of progression to heart attacks and strokes. His research was presented in the Ralph Reader Prize Section at the Annual Scientific Meeting of Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand as a finalist. He is currently a senior lecturer (adjunct) at Monash University and publishes in several peer-reviewed journals.
