About Prof John Ormiston
John Ormiston, New Zealand's most experienced interventional cardiologist, has introduced many new technologies to New Zealand, including TAVI (transcather aortic valve implantation). His international reputation is founded on bench testing and clinical trials of new cardiac devices, areas in which he is widely published. He is an invited speaker at interventional meetings worldwide, a past president of the Asia Pacific Society for Interventional Cardiology, a member of the Interventional Scientific Council of the American College of Cardiology, and an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (London). In addition, John sits on the scientific advisory board of two cardiology device companies, and helps to organise the three major international interventional meetings annually. He was instrumental in developing Mercy Angiography, the country's busiest private cardiac facility, where he is Medical Director.
In the 2011 New Year's honours list John became an Officer of the NZ Order of Merit (ONZM) for services to medicine.
