David Kettles, is a cardiologist working predominantly in private practice in East London, South Africa.
After completing his undergraduate and postgraduate internal medicine studies at the University of Cape Town, he spent additional training time in Brighton UK, before returning to East London to open an interventional cardiac facility, the first in the region.
He immediately commenced a primary PCI programme for all STEMI patients at the private hospitals in the city, and since presenting the results of primary PCI in his hospital at the SA Heart association meetings, has developed STEMI management as a primary interest.
He is president of the South African Society for Cardiovascular Intervention (SASCI), and on the national STEMI committee, striving to improve the outcomes for STEMI patients treated in South Africa.
