Date:10/4/2011

FAIRFAX, Va.Society of Interventional Radiology member Barry T. Katzen, M.D., FSIR, an interventional radiologist and founder and medical director of Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute in Miami, Fla., was awarded this year's Vascular Disease Foundation's Julius H. Jacobson II MD Award for Physician Excellence. This prestigious award recognizes outstanding contributions to physician education, leadership or patient care in vascular disease.

"For more than 30 years, I've been committed to the improved diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases andin particularto increasing public awareness," said Katzen, past president of SIR, a national organization of nearly 4,700 doctors, scientists and allied health professionals dedicated to improving health care through minimally invasive treatments.
