Dr Andrew Kelly

Andrew graduated from the University of Adelaide in 1997 and completed his internship at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. He was awarded a Diploma in Child Health in 1998 at the Women's and Children's Hospital and then went on to Paediatric and Cardiology training in the same institution.

Andrew undertook his postgraduate training at the Children's Hospital at Westmead Hospital, New South Wales (2004-2006). Following this he was selected for further specialization at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, UK (2006-2007). This is the largest postgraduate specialist heart and lung centre in the United Kingdom with a paediatric unit recognized as one of three major centres in the south of England for the treatment of infants with congenital heart disease.

Andrew returned to Adelaide late 2007 and is currently employed as a staff specialist at the Women's and Children's Hospital in South Australia. Currently he is the only Paediatric Cardiologist in South Australia affiliated with a tertiary hospital to be consulting in private practice outside the Women's and Children's Hospital.

In addition to consulting at the Cardiovascular Centre, Andrew provides inpatient and consulting services at the Women's and Children's Hospital and the Flinders Medical Centre. In addition, Andrew visits Port Augusta. He is readily contactable to discuss paediatric cardiology issues at any time.

    Atrial fibrillation is a consequence of several reversible risk factors - high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, sleep apnoea, and excessive alcohol. Your management of atrial fibrillation must include strict control of these risk factors.
