About the Provider

Robert Gallino, MD, is an interventional cardiologist and is board certified in cardiovascular disease. He formerly acted as Director of Peripheral Vascular Interventions at George Washington University Hospital. He currently is the Trainer of Interventional Fellows at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at Georgetown University Medical School. He is a member of the Medical Society of the District of Columbia and the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland.

Dr. Gallino specializes in treating chronic total occlusion using a transradial approach. He sees patients for blockages of the coronaries, heart attacks, claudication and blocked arteries in the leg. His clinical interests include interventional cardiological approaches to chronic total occlusions. His research interests include transcatheter cardiovascular therapeutics and cardiac resynchronization therapy.

Dr. Gallino received his medical degree from Creighton University School of Medicine. He then completed his internship and residency training at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where he stayed to complete fellowship training in cardiology, interventional cardiology and peripheral angiography & interventions. Since 1993, Dr. Gallino has been named as a Washingtonian Top Doctor. He also published a chapter on Crossing SFA Occlusions in the publication Peripheral Artery Disease by Robert Dieter.

Dr. Gallino has traveled the world teaching doctors interventional techniques as well as learning from the doctor's that he teaches. He has taken the stage in China, Japan, Poland, Germany, France, Spain and Italy, to name a few, to perform live surgeries. While teaching physicians in Japan how to treat blockages through the use of a laser, he learned how to perform interventional procedures from the wrist, or using a transradial approach. Dr. Gallino uses this knowledge to lead the teaching program at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where he teaches cardiology fellows interventional techniques.

Dr. Gallino is hoping to treat more patients with claudication and nonhealing ulcers on the foot. He currently receives referral patients with diabetes from podiatrists and would like to have the ability to help more of these patients.

Dr. Gallino continues to consult with contacts he has made globally throughout the years. He continually improves his techniques by teaching as well as learning from other physicians. When not refining his surgical techniques, Dr. Gallino tests golf clubs for Golf Magazine. He is also a die-hard Yankees and NY Giants fan.

Philosophy of Care

I love people and I love to give individualized care by finding a common bond with my patients. Connecting with each one of my patients is something that I never take for granted. I feel honored that people allow me to help their loved ones.

I take my work and my patients very seriously. I give each procedure everything I can with the most up to date techniques, which I constantly try to refine. I believe that I’m better now than I was 3 months ago, and I’m sure I’ll be better in 3 months than I am now.
