Research & Publications

In addition to his practice, Dr. Robbins has also been active in research throughout his career. Over the years he has investigated and published on a wide variety of topics. His most recent research interests focus on the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease. While his research activities are entirely separate from his cardiology practice, by being active in the academic community, Dr. Robbins is able to offer his patients the most recent developments in cardiac care.


Alteration in cardiac outcomes of patients with end-stage renal disease by aggressive cardiac intervention: Principle investigators: Robbins M, Kim M, and Winston J: The Mount Sinai Medical Center

Drug eluting stents and coronary outcomes in patients with renal dysfunction: Principle investigators Sharma S, Kim M, Kini A, and Robbins M
