From the beginning of Dr Oldfield's specialist training, he has been an innovator, especially in the development of cardiac echo, ultrasound diagnostics and angiography, having established echo services in 1982.
His desire to achieve better patient outcomes is what drives Dr Oldfield. He attends and contributes to specialist cardiac conferences around the world, to assess the latest research so it can be applied as soon as possible to the care of his patients. Because of his skills and deep experience in both medical and interventional management of cardiac patients, Geoff brings a wide perspective on suggesting the right treatment for each individual patient.
His professional interests range from renal denervation in intractable hypertension, the medical and invasive management of heart disease, and the use of echocardiography in systolic and diastolic heart failure.
As he’s done throughout his career, Geoff Oldfield is expanding the treatment options and choices available to patients in Newcastle, the Hunter region and beyond by transferring to the new cardiac catheterisation laboratory at Lingard Private Hospital in Merewether. As well as two new Siemens cardiac cath labs, the expanded facility includes a dedicated 12-bed coronary care unit and a six-bed intensive care unit custom designed to meet the specific needs of cardiac patients.
In his spare time, Geoff Oldfield is a popular guest speaker in high demand with professional and ancillary organisations and is keen to assist Hunter region medical professionals to keep up to date with the latest developments in the treatment of heart disease.
