Biography

Ronald S. Winokur, M.D. is a board-certified radiologist specializing in interventional radiology and minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins. He is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College and an Assistant Attending Radiologist at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Campus.  He sees patients at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Campus, where he focuses on the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), chronic venous disease, pelvic venous insufficiency, pelvic congestion syndrome, varicoceles, and interventional treatments of cancer. Dr. Winokur also sees patients at the Weill Cornell Vein Treatment Center in a facility located at 2315 Broadway (84th Street), where he utilizes techniques such as endovenous thermal ablation with laser (EVLT), Venaseal glue closure, Varithena chemical ablation, Clarivein mechanicochemical ablation, sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy for the treatment of varicose veins.

Dr. Winokur was invited to join the faculty of Weill Cornell Radiology faculty after completing a fellowship in Interventional Radiology at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical College and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Winokur completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital where he was elected and served as Chief Resident in his final year of residency. He completed his internship in Internal Medicine at The Lankenau Hospital after earning his M.D. degree from Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University. Dr. Winokur earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical engineering from Tulane University prior to attending medical school. 

Dr. Winokur’s clinical expertise is in venous diseases involving both the deep and superficial venous systems as well as pelvic venous conditions. He performs a wide variety of interventional procedures including, but not limited to procedures to remove acute and chronic clots in the deep venous system, treatment of the post-thrombotic syndrome, venous leg ulceration, treatment of varicose veins, treatment of pelvic venous insufficiency, image-guided biopsies and vascular access.

Dr. Winokur achieved Board Certification in Diagnostic Radiology from the American Board of Radiology in 2012. His research interests include the treatment of venous diseases, a topic in which he has co-authored several book chapters, written peer reviewed publications and presented at national meetings. 

In addition to clinical activities, Dr. Winokur plays a large role in medical education as the current Program Director for the Interventional Radiology Fellowship and Interventional Radiology-Diagnostic Radiology residency Program. He has an interest in improving IR medical education by using simulation and has presented his work at multiple national meetings.
