Areas of Expertise
Dr Jonathan Byrne performs a range of treatments, including:
Some of the most common conditions he treats are:
- Coronary artery disease
- Valvular disease
Dr Jonathon Byrne (PhD, MB ChB, MRCP) completed his undergraduate medical training at the University of Bristol, in 1995.
He then continued his general professional medical training in the south east of England and London, going on to begin a PhD in the academic department of Cardiology at King’s College Hospital, which looked at molecular mechanisms underlying left ventricular hypertrophy.
After he was awarded his PhD in 2004, he undertook his specialist training in cardiology at King’s College Hospital, working on the South Thames rotation. This training also took him to Vancouver Island, where he was sponsored as an interventional fellow.
Between 2005-6, he undertook further interventional cardiology training at Kings College Hospital, before heading out to Western Canada as a Boston scientific fellow in 2006-07.
In 2007, he returned to the UK to complete his training in interventional cardiology, transoesophageal echocardiography and cardiac CT scanning. He was appointed as a consultant in July 2008.
Dr Byrne is committed to improving patient experience and the development of new technologies. He has been heavily involved in the improvement of the structural programme at Kings College Hospital; particularly with the use of new innovative percutaneous techniques to treat aortic and mitral valve disease.
Research and Awards
Dr Byrne research has focused on molecular mechanism which underlie the development of left ventricular hypertrophy, as well as the application of coronary physiology in an interventional setting.
His research has also explored the differences and advantages of intervention performed from the radial artery (wrist).
