About Dr.  Johnson


The Medical Director and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Adeyemi Sanyade Johnson is a seasoned interventional cardiologist. He graduated from the College of Medicine University of Lagos in 1980. He began his postgraduate training at Yale University New Haven Connecticut USA where he was enrolled in the Masters in Public health and Preventive Medicine program. He then underwent his Internal Medicine Residency training program as well as his Cardiovascular Disease fellowship training program at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University New York. He became a Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine in 1987 and Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine- Cardiovascular disease Subspecialty in 1989. He subsequently underwent Interventional Cardiology Fellowship training at Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda California. He became Director of Vascular Cardiology at Mid Carolina Cardiology, Charlotte-North Carolina and is credited with the initiation of the peripheral vascular intervention program at the institution. He was appointed Associate Clinical Professor Wake Forest University Medical Center Winston North Carolina in 2006. He relocated to Nigeria in 2008 and founded First Cardiology Consultants Ltd. He has pioneered contemporary invasive cardiology in Nigeria. He has performed several procedures including the first coronary angioplasty with stent implantation in Nigeria, first non-surgical (percutaneous) closure of holes in the heart for children (patent ductus arteriosus) and adults (atrial septal defect). He now performs these procedures routinely. Dr Johnson has also established a non-surgical peripheral vascular disease program to restore blood flow to blocked arteries of the arms and legs. This program has helped salvage several limbs which hitherto would have been amputated due to poor circulation.
