Consultant Cardiologist in Oxford
Professor Banning is a Consultant Cardiologist at the John Radcliffe University Hospital, Oxford – a position he has held since 1999. He subsequently became the clinical lead for cardiac medicine and was appointed Divisional Director in 2010.
He is currently President of the British Cardiac Intervention Society.
During his career, Professor Banning’s focus has been on non-invasive cardiac techniques. He was an early advocate of ‘drug eluting stents’ as an alternative to the coronary bypass. He is a pioneer of non-invasive valve replacement (TAVI / TAVR) and his work with the Lotus valve has provided an alternative for people with aortic stenosis too frail for open heart surgery.
Promoting heart health and an international reputation for cardiology
In 2010, Professor Banning was featured in the Daily Mail’s top 10 list of cardiologists. To compile the results, they asked 40 of the UK’s cardiologists to recommend five people they would trust to treat their family or close friends.
“A very talented operator who is developing an international reputation in interventional cardiology.”
“He’s a lovely guy and his patients think highly of him.”
“Has a very sensible approach to cardiology and absolutely will not take undue risks with patients who could be better served by heart surgery.”
He has also provided expert advice to a much wider audience in his position as Boots the Chemist’s Health Club cardiology expert.
In addition to his consultancy work, Professor Banning continues to give lectures, take an active role in research and gives intervention training courses at home and internationally.
When he’s not travelling, Professor Banning lives and works in Oxford, both at the John Radcliffe and at his own private practice at The Manor.
