Dr Duncan Dymond was educated at St Bartholomews Hospital Medical School, where he won the David Weizman Memorial Prize in Cardiology in his final year, as well as being Proxime Accessit in the Brackenbury Medicine Prize. He graduated in 1972. After his pre-registration house jobs and a further year of general medicine, he obtained the MRCP in 1974. He then embarked upon his Cardiology training as a recipient of an Aylwen Bursary in the Department of Cardiology at Barts hospital. He trained in non-invasive and invasive Cardiology, and began to research into the use of radioisotopes as diagnostic tools in coronary artery disease, and published extensively in this field. He presented his work at national and international meetings. He was awarded the degree of MD (Doctor of Medicine) for his thesis in the University of London in 1980. He has more than 100 scientific articles to his name.In 1987 Dr Dymond was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at St Bartholomews Hospital; a post he currently occupies. Since his appointment he has served on the Scientific Committee of the European Society of Cardiology and was elected a Founder Fellow of that Society. He has also served as a member of Council of the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society (concerned with angioplasty and related technology) and was elected Honorary Secretary of the British Cardiac Society, serving from 1990 to 1994. In this role he was also a member of the Cardiology Committee of the Royal College of Physicians, and was elected to the full Fellowship of that College in 1991.Currently, Dr Duncan Dymond is actively involved in most aspects of adult cardiology. He sees patients with chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness and collapse, palpitations etc. He has maintained his expertise in the use and interpretation of radio-isotope imaging techniques in both diagnosing coronary artery disease and in the assessment of its prognosis. He is also widely experienced in the use of EBCT calcium scanning to assess future risk, and has an interest in the developing techniques of CT angiography and magnetic resonance imaging of the heart.Dr Dymonds major procedural expertise is in the field of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) which involves the use of stents to open blocked or narrowed arteries. Dr Dymond has been in this field since 1980 and in fact was among the first to use balloon technology in the UK. He specialises in complex cases such as multivessel disease, chronically blocked arteries, and narrowings in bypass grafts as a few examples. He performs these regularly in the NHS at St Bartholomews Hospital and privately at the Wellington hospital. His results, success and complication rates are produced each year as part of the NHS appraisal process.Dr Dymond continues to lecture both in the UK and abroad, and is lead clinician for Audit and Clinical Standards at the Wellington Hospital, and co-chairman of the Clinical Governance board.
