Robert J. Min, M.D.

Robert Min

A pioneer in the field of vascular interventional radiology, Dr. Robert Min is Chairman of Radiology at Weill Cornell medical College, Radiologist-in-Chief at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and President of Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian.

Dr. Min is developer of endovenous laser for treatment of venous insufficiency — when the leg’s veins cannot effectively return blood to the heart.  Now 12 years old, the minimally invasive technique is used by thousands of physicians around the world to treat a variety of conditions, including varicose veins.  Dr. Min also developed transcatheter duplex-guided sclerotherapy, another minimally invasive method of treating venous insufficiency.  

Dr. Min’s other areas of clinical and research interests include non-invasive treatments of tumors. He has been Principal Investigator on studies evaluating Uterine Artery Embolization for treatment of symptomatic leiyomyomata and has developed NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell into one of the nation’s leading centers offering relief for the many women who suffer from this condition.  Most recently, Dr. Min’s research focus has centered on MR Guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS). Dr. Min also has an interest in appropriate ordering and utilization of diagnostic imaging and is Co-investigator in a Medicare Imaging Demonstration project from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Dr. Min oversees more than 100 faculty in three different areas: Weill Cornell Vascular, which offers minimally invasive treatments for venous insufficiency, uterine fibroids, and evaluation of peripheral arterial disease; Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian, which provides state-of-the-art outpatient diagnostic services at four locations on the upper eastside of Manhattan; and Weill Cornell Radiology, which provides the full spectrum of diagnostic radiology and image-guided interventions for inpatients, outpatients, and the emergency department at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

Dr. Min graduated from Weill Cornell Medical College in 1990 and received his M.B.A. from Columbia University in 2002.  He completed an internship in surgery and a residency in diagnostic radiology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, where he served as chief resident. He received additional subspecialty fellowship training in cardiovascular interventional radiology at Stanford University Medical Center, and was appointed to NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell in 1999.

Dr. Min is Past-President of the American College of Phlebology, the largest medical society focused solely on venous conditions, with more than 2,000 members from 46 countries.  He is also a founding member and serves as Vice-President of the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine.  Dr. Min is Past-President of the New York Roentgen Society, and Vice-President and a Councilor for the New York State Chapter of the ACR. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Radiology, a Fellow of the American College of Phlebology, a Fellow of the Society of Interventional Radiology, and a Member of the American Society of Laser Medicine, Radiological Society of North America, American College of Radiology, and other radiological and venous-related societies.

Dr. Min has authored or co-authored over fifty scientific articles, abstracts, and book chapters on venous disorders. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Imaging, on the Editorial Board of Phlebology and Techniques in Vascular and Interventional Radiology, and as a Reviewer for the Journal of Vascular Interventional Radiology, Radiology, American Journal of Roentgenology, European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Phlebology, Biomedical Engineering, Journal of Endovascular Therapy, Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, Academic Radiology, and The Female Patient.  He serves as an Item Writer for the Board Certification Examination in Venous & Lymphatic Medicine, a major step in assuring that physicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of venous disorders possess the necessary qualifications to provide safe, high quality care.

Dr. Min has been interviewed as an expert on venous disease and minimally invasive image-guided therapies by every major local and national television network (including the Today Show, Good Morning America and The Early Show), featured in countless publications (including The New York Times), and is an invited lecturer throughout the world haven given more than 200 presentations.
