Barry T. Katzen, M.D., Founder and Executive Medical Director of Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, has distinguished himself internationally as a leader in the field of interventional radiology. From pioneering minimally invasive treatments for life-threatening aneurysms to teaching other physicians the intricacies of new techniques, Dr. Katzen continues to be a true innovator.
A native of Miami Beach, Dr. Katzen received his medical degree from the University of Miami, completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at 8.5x11_3-12 CARDIAC SYMP BIO KATZEN_Page_1New York Hospital/Cornell Medical Center, and completed fellowships in cardiovascular radiology at St. Vincent’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Rome.
After his training, he practiced in Alexandria, Virginia, where he was among a handful of radiologists who began developing and refining minimally invasive treatments. He performed the first renal angioplasty in the United States and was a member of the investigative team that led to the approval of the first intravascular stent.
In 1987, Dr. Katzen returned to South Florida and founded Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute (formerly Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute). With his vision of bringing together physicians from different specialties to treat the cardiac and vascular systems as one, Dr. Katzen transformed how physicians think about disease and care for patients – a practice that is now modeled throughout the world.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Katzen has been a national site principal investigator for numerous landmark clinical trials in the study of aneurysms, carotid artery disease and peripheral vascular disease. He has helped develop instruments and devices for minimally invasive procedures, lectured throughout the world on topics in interventional radiology and published extensively in medical journals, textbooks and other scientific literature.

The recipient of numerous awards, Dr. Katzen was the first American to be presented with the Gold Medal award from the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe in 1997. In 2007, he received the Career Achievement Award presented at the Transcatheter Therapeutics Conference for his worldwide leadership in endovascular medicine.
Dr. Katzen is a clinical professor of radiology at the University of South Florida College of Medicine and Florida International University’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, where he also serves as associate dean for clinical affairs on behalf of Baptist Health.
