Biography

Dr. Richard E. Ringel is an associate professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is the director of the Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Johns Hopkins Children's Center and co-director of the Heart and Vascular Institute’s Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program.

Dr. Ringel is a pediatric cardiologist who specializes in the diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization of children and adults with congenital heart disease. He performs procedures that include non-surgical closure of patent ductus arteriosus; non-surgical device closure of atrial septal defect; stent enlargement of narrowed arterial and venous blood vessels; and balloon valvotomy for narrowed pulmonary and aortic valves.

He earned his medical degree at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. He completed both a pediatrics residency and pediatric cardiology fellowship at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Dr. Ringel’s research focus is therapeutic catheterization for congenital heart disease. He served as the sponsor and principal investigator of the COAST: the multicenter Coarctation of the Aorta Stent Trial.
