About Dr. Narayanan
MIAMI, FL — September 4, 2018 — Renowned interventional radiologist Govindarajan Narayanan, M.D., has joined the clinical teams at two of Baptist Health South Florida’spremiere service lines – Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, the area’s largest and most comprehensive cardiovascular facility, and Miami Cancer Institute, a next-generation cancer center and Florida’s only member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Alliance, where he has been named Chief of Interventional Oncology.
Dr. Narayanan brings a wealth of academic, clinical and research expertise. He comes to Baptist Health from the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine, where he was the founding chair of the Department of Interventional Radiology and held the titles of Professor of Interventional Radiology and Professor of Urology. A member of numerous professional and honorary organizations, he is also a pioneer in his field, developing the technique of percutaneous irreversible electroporation (IRE) of the pancreas. In his new role, Dr. Narayanan will lead Miami Cancer Institute’s division of Interventional Oncology, which has become an essential component of its comprehensive, multidisciplinary model of oncologic care.
“The appointment of Dr. Narayanan to this important, clinical leadership role is a testament to the benefits of minimally invasive surgical techniques and to our dedication to collaborative, multidisciplinary cancer care,” said Michael J. Zinner, M.D., founding CEO and executive medical director of Miami Cancer Institute. “Dr. Narayanan is among the best in his field, having pioneered many of the specialized clinical applications in interventional radiology that are used today. He will work in close coordination with care teams at both Institutes to plan and deliver personalized treatments that profoundly impact outcomes.”
Dr. Narayanan’s discipline includes residency training in nuclear medicine at Methodist Hospital of Brooklyn and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, as well as a residency in diagnostic radiology at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey. His fellowship years encompassed training in interventional radiology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and Stony Brook University Hospital in New York. Dr. Narayanan is board-certified in diagnostic radiology and holds a Certificate of Added Qualification in interventional radiology.
Dr. Narayanan’s primary clinical research interests include pancreatic, liver and colon cancer. He is widely published in such prestigious medical journals as Cancer, Journal of Vascular and Interventional Oncology and Cardiovascular & Interventional Radiology and serves as a reviewer and editor for several scientific publications. His published work on Percutaneous IRE of the pancreas was honored as a distinguished study of the year at the 2018 Society of Interventional Radiology Annual meeting. He also is an invited faculty member and speaker at several national and international scientific meetings.
Highly skilled interventional radiologists such as Dr. Narayanan are uniquely qualified to diagnose cancer and to treat the disease utilizing targeted, minimally invasive procedures performed under image guidance. The scope of interventional oncologic interventions includes tumor ablation, chemoembolization and radioembolization. These advanced interventions also can be used to manage pain and alleviate a variety of other cancer associated symptoms. Because incisions are small and the procedures are quick and precise, side effects and recovery time are minimal.
