Dr. Brandon Jones first became excited about becoming a physician while working on a 911 ambulance as an undergraduate student at UCLA. “I found myself especially fascinated by cardiac emergencies, which eventually prompted me to pursue a career as an interventional cardiologist. People come to us with a wide variety of difficult problems – their chest hurts, they can’t breathe, or they can’t do the activities they enjoy. To be able to help them is very gratifying.”
Dr. Jones earned his medical degree at Boston University. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, and fellowships in Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Dr. Jones is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, and Interventional Cardiology, and is a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI).
In addition to coronary interventions, Dr. Jones has a special focus in performing minimally invasive structural heart procedures including Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), Mitra-clip, paravalvular leak closure, and PFO closure. Dr. Jones participates in a number of research trials involving novel technologies for structural heart and valve disease as part of the Providence Valve Center. Additionally, Dr. Jones specializes in peripheral vascular interventions and has a special interest in treating patients with critical limb ischemia.
For patients who may need such interventions, Dr. Jones notes that he “enjoys the opportunity to get to know each patient and their family, understand their values, goals, and expectations, and try to guide them through what can often seem like a scary process.”
Dr. Jones grew up in the East San Francisco Bay Area. While away from his medical practice, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their two children. He and his family are enjoying exploring all the outdoor activities that Portland has to offer.
