Dr. Barmada studied undergraduate applied biology in London in the mid-sixties; and in 1967, he founded the Brunel Equestrian Club, where he also instructed in horse-riding and dressage. In 1968, he gained admission to the prestigious St. Andrews University (Scotland’s oldest university) to study Medical Science. There he founded the Karate club of St. Andrews. Later, in 1973, while a medical student at Manchester University in England, he founded three Karate Clubs, where he also instructed in Karate, reaching the 4th. Dan (grade) of black-belt.
Dr. Barmada’s medical career began in 1974, when he graduated from Manchester University Medical School. After finishing his internship in hematology he held a one-year residency in pathology and another in internal medicine. He believed that such experience would make him a better surgeon. In 1977, he started a general surgical residency, followed by a residency in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, working with two of the giants of cardiac surgery: Donald Ross, MD, and Professor Sir Magdy Yacoub, the world’s most experienced heart transplant surgeon. Over the next several years Dr. Barmada acquired extensive experience in cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery, including trauma.
Being passionate about sport and sports medicine, from 1974 to 1984, Dr. Barmada served as Medical Officer to the “United Kingdom Karate-do Federation,” advising on and treating sports injuries at national and international events. In addition, he served as Medical Officer to the “Martial Arts Commission of Great Britain.” During a visit to Japan in 1973, Grand-Master Hironori Ohtsuka, endorsed Dr. Barmada and presented him with his commemorative, not-for-sale book. Ohtsuka, was famous for founding the Wado-Ryu style of Karate, for developing the current system of scoring in Karate and for being the only person in the history of sport to be honored by the Emperor of Japan, with the “Medal of the Rising Sun.”
In 1991, Dr. Barmada joined the Heart Institute at St. Vincent Hospital in Portland, Oregon, as Chief Fellow working alongside the world-renowned Cardiac Surgeon, Dr. Albert Starr, the first surgeon in the world to insert a valve in a heart. He later became Associate in Cardiac Surgery at Harvard University’s Beth Israel Hospital. In 2000, he went to settle on the Mississippi Coast where he operated extensively at several coastal hospitals, performing thoracic, cardiac and vascular (incl. endovascular) surgery. Over the years he became especially interest in renal dialysis access as well as venous and lymphatic disorders. In Summer 2011, Dr. Barmada decided to dedicate more time to his enlarging office-based vascular practice; and in addition developed his interest in Stem Cell research, since he had been fascinated by the use of stem cells for treatment of many inoperable conditions including vascular occlusions, severe COPD, heart conditions and many others, that he used to encounter frequently in clinical practice. Dr. Barmada’s prestigious awards and associations include memberships of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, the Society for Vascular Ultrasound, the American Venous Forum, the American College of Phlebology; and Fellowships of the Royal Society of Medicine, England, the Royal College of Edinburgh in General Surgery and later in Cardio-Vascular Surgery and Fellowship of the British, four Royal College Boards in Cardio-thoracic Surgery. He possesses two active medical licenses in Mississippi and Louisiana and four dormant licenses in Massachusetts, Oregon, Washington and California; and has three US patents in Cardiac and vascular surgery.
