    About

    Mr Ranjit Deshpande is a senior consultant in Cardiothoracic Surgery at King's College Hospital, where he has been based since 2007. He is highly specialised in Minimally Invasive (Keyhole) Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery, in addition to general cardiothoracic surgery. He is also a key member of King's "Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation" (TAVI) programme.

    Mr Deshpande is renowned for using bilateral internal mammary arteries for coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) to achieve near-total arterial re-vascularisation in ischemic heart disease. Furthermore, he is internationally recognised for performing endoscopic CABG as a "beating heart" procedure without opening the sternum.

    Following his training in the South-East Thames London Cardiothoracic Surgical Programme, Mr Deshpande earned a prestigious scholarship from the European Association of Cardiothoracic Surgeons to work at OLV Zeinkenhaus, Belgium to study port-access endoscopic mitral valve repair surgery for mitral valve prolapse. He became a Senior Registrar in Advanced Aortic & Robotic Cardiac Surgery at London's Royal Brompton Hospital in 2006.

    Mr Deshpande is a key member of the South London Cardiac Network's complex major aortic surgery group, which is specifically created for aortic root and aortic dissection surgery. Additionally, he is the founder and treasurer of the British and Irish Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery.

    Outside of the hospital, Mr Deshpande enjoys spending his free time with his family, going to the theatre, and playing cricket.

    Mr Deshpande is an extremely capable cardiothoracic surgeon who has an engaging and professional "bedside manner". He went out of his way beforehand to explain the surgical procedure as well as the aftercare. After the surgery he was a frequent visitor to ICU and the Ward to check on my progress. Highly recommended!

    Dear Mr Deshpande, Just a short note to express my appreciation for your care and expertise when you performed a mitral valve repair on me in January 2016. I met with my cardiologist, Malcolm Davidson this morning and he once again reiterated what an excellent job you had done. This prompted me to once again say thank you. My wife and I have moved back to Brisbane now and have become grandparents so life is good.
