Curriculum Vitae

Biography

Dr. Gervasio Lamas is the Chairman of Medicine, Chief of the Columbia University Division of Cardiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center.

Dr. Lamas grew up in South Florida, graduating from Ransom School for Boys, and promptly headed north to Boston, where he discovered he did not really like snow, but remained for many years nonetheless. He received his B.A. in Biochemical Sciences cum laude from Harvard College and his M.D. with honors (AOA) from New York University. He completed his internship and residency and cardiology training at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital of Harvard Medical School, where he later served as Assistant Professor of Medicine.

In 1993, Mount Sinai recruited Dr. Lamas as Chief of Cardiology. He later served as the hospital’s Director of Cardiovascular Research and Academic Affairs – June 2008 until January 2009, then moved on as Director of the Cardiology Fellowship Program at Jackson Memorial Hospital/VAMC/University of Miami. Dr. Lamas returned to Mount Sinai in January 2009 when the hospital launched its Ivy League affiliation with Columbia University.

Under Dr. Lamas’ leadership the Columbia University Division of Cardiology at Mount Sinai has recruited highly qualified cardiologists who are at the forefront of their field and specialize in a wide range of cardiovascular conditions, elevating the level of cardiac care at Mount Sinai and in the community. Mount Sinai proudly boasts the best 30-day heart attack survival rate in Miami-Dade.

Dr. Lamas has always dedicated himself to clinical work, and to research to improve patient care.  He has led multiple large-scale clinical trials that have improved clinical practice world-wide and now leads the $40 million Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy 2, which is currently recruiting patients (www.tact2.org).  He has published over 300 peer-reviewed articles and abstracts.

He maintains clinical practices in Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Miami Shores, and Skylake. His patients inspire his academic work.
