Professor Banning, Consultant in interventional and general cardiology, is one of the founder members of the Oxford Private Heart and Lung Centre at Nuffield Health Oxford, The Manor Hospital. He is one of the UK’s top interventional cardiologists, performing more than 400 intervention procedures every year. These minimally invasive procedures spare patients the need to have coronary bypass surgery. Top of the list is angioplasty (also called percutaneous coronary intervention or PCI), a procedure used to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries.
Professor Banning has been at the forefront of the development of the latest type of stents, called drug-eluting stents. These are coated with a drug that modifies the artery’s repair process so that re-narrowing is less likely to occur.
Professor Banning is also President of the British Cardiac Intervention Society.
Outside of Cardiology, Professor Banning is vice chair of Governers of Headington School, Oxford. He can often to be found by the side of the Thames encouraging his two daughters in their competitive rowing activities.
