About Andrew Rosenthal
Andrew Rosenthal, MD, was born and raised in New York. He graduated from The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in 1984 with honors as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the National Honor Society. Dr. Rosenthal completed his training in internal medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1987. His cardiovascular training was obtained at HUP where an elective fourth year of additional training was devoted to the catheterization lab where Dr. Rosenthal perfected his skills as an interventional cardiologist. Dr. Rosenthal is board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular diseases and has completed subspecialty boards in interventional cardiology.
In 1991, Dr. Rosenthal relocated to St. Petersburg, Fla. and became the fourth member of the Cardiology Consultants. This group formed the nucleus for the eventual creation of the Heart Institute of St. Petersburg. As one of the first fellowship trained interventional cardiologists in the area, Dr. Rosenthal soon became one of the community leaders and innovators in interventional cardiology.
Since 1997, Dr. Rosenthal has been the medical director of the Cardiac Cath Lab as well as the chairman or co-chairman of the adult cardiovascular department of All Children’s Hospital. He has been instrumental in supporting and growing the interventional program in South Pinellas County with the introduction of complex balloon angioplasty, directional coronary atherectomy (DCA), rotational atherectomy (rotoblator), advanced stenting techniques and intravascular ultrasound. He has spearheaded the use of the radial artery as the approach of choice for patients coming to the cath lab and thus has shortened post procedure immobility and patient discomfort, leading to an increase in patient satisfaction. Given his proficiency and success using this technique, Dr. Rosenthal has become an instructor for this trans-radial approach, travelling extensively throughout Florida and the Southeast U.S., teaching other doctors, cath labs and hospitals how to initiate such a program.
Dr. Rosenthal has participated in numerous clinical research trials including the use of new devices and medications in order to improve care and outcomes in patients with coronary artery disease.
