Ronald P. Caputo, MD, MSCAI | SCAI

Dr. Ron Caputo grew up in Brockton, Massachusetts, where he attended public high school. Turning down admission to Harvard University, he graduated from Georgetown University with a BS in Biology and a minor in English and subsequently graduated from Georgetown University Medical School. He completed his residency in internal medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center and stayed on as Chief Medical Resident. Following this, he moved on to the Harvard/Beth Israel Cardiology program completing general and interventional cardiology training. He was privileged to work there with Drs Donald Baim, William Grossman, Richard Kuntz, David Cohen, Joseph Carrozza, Mark Josephson, and many others - all of whom motivated him to strive for excellence in the field. Moving on to a busy clinical interventional cardiology practice with St. Joseph's Hospital Cardiology Associates, he helped pioneer radial arterial access, doing his first radial cases in 1997. He developed a clinical research program that was proud to participate in several seminal clinical device studies, and he is an author of more than 90 peer-reviewed manuscripts. He moved on to start a cardiovascular service line at Physician's Regional Medical Center in Naples, FL helping to initiate cardiothoracic surgery, high-risk PCI, structural heart and PERT programs, and clinical research. Interest in new devices prompted the formation of two medical device companies (AngioLink and Transluminal Technologies), within which he has several issued patents and two medical devices that have received regulatory approval. He is a strong advocate for SCAI, having served on the Board of Trustees, as the Chairman of the Membership Committee, and as a member of the Industrial Relations Committee for many years. 
Ron is most appreciative of the support of his wife of 35 years, Joanne, and most fulfilled by being the father of five wonderful children.
