Dr Amol Moray is a paediatric and fetal cardiologist (a cardiologist who cares for the baby in the mother’s womb) with expertise in the holistic cardiac care of children with heart problems. At Queensland Cardiovascular Group, Dr Moray compassionately cares for children of all ages, from newborns right through to late adolescents. He finds it a privilege to support families in understanding and managing the cardiac conditions that babies and children can experience, and works closely with their GP and paediatrician to ensure a solid network of support. Along with consultations, Dr Moray routinely provides echocardiography and ECG services, and the more advanced services of holter monitoring and event monitoring as indicated to his young patients.
Dr Moray has extensive experience in looking after fragile newborns and infants with critical heart disease, that is, babies born with abnormal ‘heart plumbing’. He has significant experience in the cardiac care of extremely premature babies in the NICU and with their ongoing issues with high lung blood pressure (pulmonary hypertension) later on. A major scope of Dr Moray’s practice involves congenital and acquired heart problems, as well as heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias). Congenital heart problems are issues a baby is born with, including ‘holes’ in the heart, or blocked or leaky valves, just to name a few. Acquired conditions are where a previously normal heart gets affected, some examples are Kawasaki disease, rheumatic heart disease, myo-pericarditis, and issues where the right heart is affected by the high lung blood pressure in ex-premmies and children with chronic respiratory issues. Heart rhythm problems, including an abnormally fast heartbeat (SVT) or long QT syndrome, can lead to fainting or near faints in children and teenagers.
Dr Moray has special interests and advanced training in the field of paediatric echocardiography, cardiac MRI and fetal cardiology. He completed his advanced cardiology training from major paediatric cardiac centres in Brisbane, Sydney, and in Canada. He undertook a part of his advanced training at Narayana Health, India, a centre considered to be amongst the busiest paediatric cardiac centres in the world. He has recently returned to Australia after undertaking sub-speciality fellowships from Canada. In Brisbane, Dr Moray worked at the Mater children’s hospital and the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital (renamed Queensland Children’s Hospital), where he worked briefly as a staff specialist before moving overseas for further sub-speciality training. He undertook general paediatric training from India and from Sydney.
Dr Moray will be seeing his paediatric patients from QCG's rooms at North Lakes Specialist Centre and will be performing fetal echocardiography from rooms at Queensland Ultrasound for Women (QUFW) in Spring Hill.
