Bryan H. Goldstein, MD, FACC, FSCAI, FAAP, joined the Heart Institute in 2011 in the section of Cardiac Catheterization and Intervention. A native of Boston, Mass., Dr. Goldstein graduated with honors from Amherst College, where he was a goalie on the men's lacrosse team. He earned his medical degree with honors from Boston University School of Medicine. He completed his pediatric residency at Children's Hospital Boston (BCRP) and his pediatric and interventional cardiology fellowships at the University of Michigan (C.S. Mott Children's Hospital) in Ann Arbor.

Dr. Goldstein’s clinical expertise is in congenital cardiac catheterization. He is interested in invasive physiologic assessment of complex congenital heart disease (CHD), including single ventricle physiology, as well as minimally invasive transcatheter therapies. Dr. Goldstein has particular clinical interests in transcatheter valve therapy and innovative hybrid therapies

Dr. Goldstein’s research interests include novel transcatheter interventions and long-term outcomes following interventions for CHD. An additional research focus includes long-term functional outcomes in Fontan survivors, including investigations of vascular function and ventricular diastolic function in the Fontan population. Dr. Goldstein receives grant funding from the American Heart Association and NHLBI. He is a co-investigator for the Nit-Occlud® PDA Post-Approval Study and previously served as a co-investigator for the Melody™ Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve Post-Approval Study.

Dr. Goldstein is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC), the Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (FSCAI), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP) and an active member of the American Heart Association (AHA). He received the Pediatric Interventional Cardiology Symposium Young Leadership Award in 2013 and was recently honored with election to the Emerging Leader Mentorship program 2015-2017 through SCAI, ACC and CRF.
