About

  • Biography icon plus

    Dr Jonathan Byrne completed his undergraduate medical training in Bristol and then continued general professional medical training in the South-East of England and London. He then undertook a PhD in the academic department of Cardiology at King’s College Hospital examining molecular mechanisms underlying left ventricular hypertrophy. Following completion, he undertook Specialist training in Cardiology on the South Thames rotation. His training in interventional cardiology was undertaken at King’s College Hospital from 2004, and continued on Vancouver Island as a Boston scientific sponsored Interventional Fellow. Following his return to the UK in 2007, he completed his training in interventional cardiology, along with transoesophageal echocardiography and cardiac CT scanning. Since his appointment as a consultant in July 2008, he has also been involved in the development of the structural programme at Kings College Hospital, with the use of novel percutaneous techniques to treat aortic and mitral valve disease.

    Dr Byrne is an interventional cardiologist who specialises in the treatment of coronary artery disease, and management of cardiovascular risk. This involves the treatment of patients with angina, heart failure, heart rhythm disturbances and high blood pressure. He also treats patients with valvular heart disease with new treatments which do not require an operation, such as TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve implantation) and Mitraclip (percutaneous treatment of the mitral valve). He performs a number of imaging tests for the heart including transoesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography along with CT coronary angiography.
