Barry T. Katzen

Founder & Chief Medical Executive
Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute

Barry T. Katzen is the founder and chief medical executive of the Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, which has served as a national model of success in multidisciplinary cooperation. He is clinical professor of radiology and surgery, Associate Dean Clinical Affairs Baptist Health, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, Florida International University; as well as at University of Miami, School of Medicine and University of South Florida, Morsani College of Medicine.

Dr. Katzen graduated from the University of Miami, School of Medicine in 1970, completed his internship at Jackson Memorial Hospital, residency at the New York Hospital/Cornell Medical Center, and a fellowship in cardiovascular radiology at St. Vincent’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Rome.

Dr. Katzen is one of the pioneers of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, peripheral thrombolysis for less invasive treatment of vascular disease and was part of the investigative team that lead to the approval of the first intravascular stent. He performed the first renal angioplasty in the United States and is considered one of the founders of interventional radiology as a specialty of medicine. He is credited with being the first to use “live patient demonstrations” in the USA, which became the benchmark for procedural education in endovascular.

Among his awards, Dr. Katzen received the Society of Interventional Radiology's (SIR) Gold Medal; the Annual Gold Medal award from the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE); and the Career Achievement Award from Trans-Catheter Therapeutics (TCT).
