Henry Van Gieson, M.D., FACC, is the medical director of the Cardiac Care Unit at the MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute at Long Beach Medical Center. Board-certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular diseases and interventional cardiology and a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, Dr. Van Gieson has been practicing in Long Beach for more than 15 years. His medical degree was earned from the University of California, Irvine and postgraduate training includes an internship and residency at St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach. Following his residency, he completed his fellowships at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance and at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles. Dr. Van Gieson holds the title of Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA.
His clinical interest includes research conducted on patients with coronary artery disease. The safety of an anti-inflammatory medicine was observed, which was coated on a metal mesh tube, or stent. The study determined how much medicine is absorbed into the blood stream from the stent, and if it will keep the artery open, for a longer period of time.
