Number of Procedures Performed:
Each year, Dr. Collier reads approximately 4,000 echocardiogram (echo) studies, including transthoracic echo, transesophageal echo (TEE), dobutamine stress echo, exercise stress echo, specific left ventricular assist device and pacemaker studies. He also participates in echo-guided interventional procedures (Pericardiocentesis, TAVR, E-Clip, Balloon Valvuloplasty, Alcohol Septal Ablation, Watchman Device Insertion) and operating room consultations (including epicardial echo).
: Cleveland Clinic has been ranked the #1 hospital for cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report since 1994. Success rates for specific procedures are available at: http://my.clevelandclinic.org/heart/about-heart-vascular-institute/treatment-outcomes.aspx
Education and Training:
Dr. Collier was the top overall undergraduate in his final medicine class at National University of Ireland in Cork. He completed his internship and residencies in medicine and surgery at Cork University & Mid-Western Regional Hospitals. Dr. Collier was a cardiology fellow in the National Cardiology Training Programme and earned his PhD at University College Dublin, completing a Clinician Scientist fellowship involving translational medical research in the area of cardiac fibrosis (heart scarring). He completed an additional fellowship in multimodality cardiovascular imaging at Cleveland Clinic, and was appointed to Cleveland Clinic professional staff in 2013.
Research, Publications and Speaking:
Dr. Collier is heavily involved in research, including his roles as CEC Chair of the multicenter INTREPID trial, Physician Reviewer for the C5 Imaging Core Lab (Juventas JTCS-004 Trial Study; St. Jude Lifetime Cohort Study Echocardiographic Detection of Treatment-related Cardiac Dysfunction in Adult Survivors of Childhood Cancer), and Clinical Adjudicator for the Sapien 3 Partner II Trial. His research interests include echocardiography, cardiac fibrosis, bicuspid aortic valve disease and cancer therapy-related heart disease. He is collaborating with a group of physicians and scientists to better understand the pathophysiology of these disorders.
Dr. Collier is widely published in leading medical journals, including Circulation, and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. He has written many book chapters related to valve disease. He also serves as a reviewer for Circulation, European Journal of Heart Failure, Heart (BMJ Group), Journal of Cardiovascular CT and Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography.
He has given numerous presentations at professional meetings and symposiums, including the Keystone Symposium
About Dr. Collier:
“I enjoy working as a doctor because it is a true privilege and honor to be able to help other people. Cardiovascular imaging is a particularly fascinating area to work in, as current technology often provides incredible images that can clearly show the inner workings of the heart and blood vessels to help guide appropriate treatments for patients.”
Leisure time activities:
Dr Collier enjoys spending as much time as possible with family. His hobbies include music and sports, in particular golf and soccer. He is a former South of Ireland golf champion.
