Mr George Krasopoulos has been a Consultant Cardiac Surgeon since 2008 and he joined the Oxford Heart Centre of John Radcliffe Hospital in July 2013. In 2015 he was awarded the title of Hon. Senior Clinical Lecturer in Cardiac Surgery from the University of Oxford.
He finished his surgical training in England and he specialised in cardiothoracic surgery within the East London Rotation (NTN – Royal Brompton, St. Mary’s, St Bartholomew’s and London Chest Hospitals of London). He gained his PhD in 1999 and he undertook a fellowship alongside Professor Tirone David at Toronto, Canada, where he sub-specialised in advanced aortic repairs and reconstructive cardiac surgery.
Mr Krasopoulos's philosophy is based on providing surgical, medical and humanitarian services of the highest standards. He believes in the development of quality health services and devotes much of his time making sure that his patients receive what they are entitled to: effective medical and surgical care with safety, dignity and respect.
The lecture will be chaired by Professor David Cranston, Associate Professor of Surgery at the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences.
All members of the University and NHS clinical staff are welcome.
