Mr Ravi de Silva - Consultant Surgeon
Mr Ravi De Silva
Mr De Silva returned to Royal Papworth Hospital after practicing as a consultant in Oxford University Hospital for 4 years. He had previously spent 6 years training at Papworth, and so came back to a familiar environment in which he is able to pursue his clinical and research interests.
Mr De Silva has considerable expertise in adult cardiac surgery, with a particular interest in minimal access surgery, aortic and aortic valve surgery, hybrid and off pump revascularization. He has a keen interest in education and training, having previously run the cardiothoracic training programme in Oxford. He has published widely, and has particular research interests in the inflammatory effects of cardiopulmonary bypass, the pathogenesis of nitric oxide in cardiovascular disease, and safety in cardiac surgery.
