Dr Roland Hilling-Smith is an associate with Queensland Cardiovascular Group. He studied medicine at Edinburgh University, Scotland and trained in general medicine at Fremantle Hospital and cardiology at the prestigious Monash Heart in Melbourne.

Roland has undertaken two interventional fellowships, firstly locally at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. He was then awarded the Chamberlain Scholarship in Advanced Coronary and Structural Intervention at the world renowned Royal Sussex County Hospital, England. During his time there Roland was involved in many international trials and several first-in-man developments.
Roland's main interest is in clinical cardiology with a focus on coronary and structural intervention. Unusually for an interventional cardiologist, Roland is also trained, accredited and performs cardiac CT giving a unique perspective in the diagnosis, investigation and management of cardiovascular diseases. 

Roland performs a wide range of percutaneous interventional procedures including coronary stents, rotablation and chronic total occlusion revascularisation. He performs the full range of structural interventions including TAVI, PFO/ASD closure, percutaneous treatments of aortic and mitral valves, left atrial appendage occlusion and renal denervation amongst others. 

Roland now teaches other consultants in structural techniques including TAVI procedure. He has published several research manuscripts, written a book chapter and spoken at international conferences. He is involved in several ongoing collaborative research projects, primarily in the field of improving patient outcomes following percutaneous structural intervention. 

Roland practices at Mater Hospital Brisbane and Mater Private Hospital Brisbane. He is also a proud member of the Heart of Australia project providing cardiovascular care to regional Queensland.
