|From the doctor||Dr. Gary Roubin is an internationally renowned interventional cardiologist recognized for his groundbreaking work in the development of the first FDA-approved coronary stent, as well as pioneering the techniques of carotid stenting and embolic protection devices. His current focus is the full collaborative integration of interventional and clinical cardiologists, vascular surgeons, radiologists and other specialists to further innovation, research, excellence in patient care and active physician participation in operational efficiency and cardiovascular care delivery models.
He came to Emory University in 1984 on a postdoctoral research grant from the National Heart Foundation of Australia to study under Andreas Gruentzig. In October of 1987, he placed the first coronary stent in a patient in the United States. Since then, Dr. Roubin’s interests have included the development of device technology and innovative techniques for the treatment of coronary and peripheral atherosclerosis. He was Director of Research at the Andreas Gruentzig Cardiovascular Center of Emory University, and Professor of Medicine and Radiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham before coming to New York in 1997. He was Co-Principal investigator in the NIH sponsored EAST study and was the lead U.S. Angioplasty operator in the NIH sponsored BARI trial, both comparing PCI and bypass surgery in patients with multivessel disease. He was the Co-Principal Investigator of the recently concluded NIH/CREST Study that has established the efficacy of carotid stenting for treatment of carotid artery stenosis.
He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, the Council on Clinical Cardiology of the American Heart Association and numerous other professional societies. Dr. Roubin has published over 250 articles in peer review journals and and edited textbooks on interventional cardiovascular medicine. He lectures extensively and has received numerous awards for his notable contributions to cardiac and vascular care. His pioneering work has been seen live in teaching courses around the world for over 25 years.
