Biography

Dr. Ronen Gurvitch completed his medical training at the University of Melbourne followed by specialist cardiology and interventional training at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. After winning the inaugural CSANZ traveling fellowship award he spent two years training in Vancouver Canada with Professor John Webb, the pioneer of percutaneous heart valve technologies.

He performs a high number of complex coronary interventions including the use of advanced imaging techniques and is regularly on call for the acute infarct angioplasty service at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He has specific expertise in structural heart disease intervention and is recognized internationally for his work in the field of transcatheter aortic valve intervention. He currently leads the transcatheter valve implantation program at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and is actively involved in proctoring and teaching other cardiologists setting up their own percutaneous valve replacement programs both nationally and overseas. He has published extensively with over 60 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals including as the first author in JACC and Circulation as well as authoring several book chapters.

Dr. Gurvitch has appointments at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne Private, John Fawkner, and Cabrini private hospitals. He consults regularly at OneHeart Cardiology in Flemington/Niddrie as well as a number of regional centers including Woodend, Gisborne, and Seymour/Euroa.
