Congratulations to St George’s Professor Robert Morgan who has been awarded the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe’s gold medal, which is given to one person a year who has made outstanding contributions to the practice and science of interventional radiology on an international scale.

Dr Richard Jennings, Group Chief Medical Officer, said: “The award of the CIRSE Gold medal is an outstanding achievement and it’s a testament to Robert’s dedication, expertise, and lifetime commitment to the field of interventional radiology. Professor Robert Morgan has undoubtedly impacted the lives of countless patients and we are immensely proud to have him as a part of our team at St George’s Hospital.

“This is also a good moment to recognise the great work of everybody who works in Interventional Radiology in this organisation, and to recognise the growing importance of Interventional Radiology in modern medical care – an importance that will only continue to grow in the years to come.”

Prof Robert Morgan leads St George’s Interventional Radiology team.  The team performs minimally invasive procedures on patients from almost all clinical specialties in the hospital. Among many different types of procedures, these include peripheral arterial disease, patients with cancer for both diagnosis and treatment, and hepatobiliary and urological conditions.

The CIRSE’s gold medal is the highest honour that an interventional radiologist can achieve in Europe.

Prof Robert Morgan is the current Vice President of the British Society of Interventional Radiology (BSIR) and will become BSIR President in 2023. In 2021, he was awarded the BSIR Gold Medal.
