Special clinical interests in non invasive cardiac imaging , management of heart failure, valvular heart disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, peri-operative medicine
Dr Michelle Butler completed her undergraduate training at the University of Melbourne and St Vincent’s Hospital Clinical School. She then went on to complete her residency at St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne, followed by advanced cardiology training at The Alfred Hospital, Melbourne.
Dr Butler then pursued subspecialty training in non-invasive cardiac imaging, completing an imaging fellowship at The Alfred Hospital which encompassed all aspects of echocardiography (transthoracic, transoesphageal and stress echo) as well as training in cardiac MRI and cardiac CT. She has also been involved in cardiac magnetic resonance research.
Dr Butler’s clinical interests are wide and include management of heart failure, valvular heart disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, peri-operative medicine and management of cardiac conditions during pregnancy.
Dr Butler joined GenesisCare (formerly HeartCare Partners) in 2013 and works from the Mater Private Clinic.
