About

Mr Krasopoulos has been a consultant cardiac surgeon since 2008 and he joined the Oxford Heart Centre of John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, UK in July 2013. He has been awarded the title of Hon. Professor in Cardiac Surgery from both the University of Cumbria (2017) and Anglia Raskin University (2019). He is also a Hon. Senior Clinical Lecturer in Cardiac Surgery at the University of Oxford, UK and a Specialist Lecturer for the Medical School, University of Buckingham, UK. In 2016 he he joined the Liga! College as a Non-Executive Director and Chairman of the non-executive board, until 2020.

Mr Krasopoulos finished his surgical training in England and specialised in cardiothoracic surgery within the East London Rotation (NTN – Royal Brompton, St. Mary’s, St Bartholomew’s, & London Chest Hospitals of London). He gained his PhD in 1999 and undertook a fellowship along side Prof. Tirone David at Toronto, Canada, where he sub-specialised in advanced aortic repairs and reconstructive cardiac surgery.

He tends to favour minimally access, cosmetic approaches for the performance of all regular cardiac surgical procedures. His team and I use techniques to minimize surgical trauma in the majority of our cardiac operations. He advocates the use of arterial grafts to perform coronary artery bypass surgery (by-pass) with or without the use of extracorporeal circulation. Mr Krasopoulos has experience in advanced techniques of aortic aneurysm and can offer surgical treatment to patients suffering from cardiac arrhythmias. He believes that where possible, repairing a diseased heart valve or the aortic root is the best form of treatment and is pleased to be able to offer these sub-specialized surgical techniques to appropriate patients with excellent results.

His philosophy is based on providing surgical, medical and humanitarian services of the highest standards. He believes in the development of quality health services and devote much of his time making sure that my patients receive what they are entitled to: effective medical and surgical care, safety, dignity and respect.
