He is a specialist in blood vessel disorders and platelet dysfunction and sees patients at Cleveland Clinic main campus.

Experience: Dr. Cameron is a cardiologist with expertise in management of vascular disease and also is experienced in caring for critically ill patients hospitalized with thrombotic emergencies, including heart attack, pulmonary embolism, aortic dissection, decompensated heart failure, complex arrhythmias, mechanical assistance and acute valvular pathology. He has performed or interpreted thousands of coronary angiograms, electrocardiograms, nuclear cardiology scans and noninvasive ultrasound studies.

Success Rates: The Section of Vascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic is one of the most active Vascular Medicine and Interventional Cardiology programs in the United States. Success rates for specific procedures are available at http://my.clevelandclinic.org/heart/about-heart-vascular-institute/treatment-outcomes.aspx

Education: Dr. Cameron earned his medical degree from SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, N.Y., and completed his residency in internal medicine at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell School of Medicine in New York. He also holds a PhD in pharmacology from the University of Rochester, Rochester, N.Y. His post-graduate training included fellowships in chemical pathology and cardiology research at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Md., following his PhD, and fellowships in cardiovascular disease and vascular medicine at the University of Rochester after completion of his residency. He was named to the Cleveland Clinic medical staff in 2019.

Research, Publications and Speaking: Dr. Cameron currently is the Principal Investigator (PI) on National Institutes of Health-funded studies since 2015 on cardiovascular complications that develop after heart attack and also on aortic aneurysmal disease and dysregulated platelet function.  He has been PI or co-PI on multiple basic, translational and clinical research studies on heart attack, arterial disease, aneurysms, pulmonary embolism and COVID-19-related thrombosis. Dr. Cameron has co-authored more than 70 scientific papers and editorials in peer-reviewed medical journals on platelet disorders and vascular medicine and has been an invited lecturer at numerous international and national medical meetings and conferences.  He is also on the American Board of Internal Medicine question committee for Cardiovascular Disease,

About Dr. Cameron: “I enjoy vascular medicine because it is gratifying to help patients with multisystem disease. My additional training and interest in general medicine and cardiology have been advantageous in diagnosing and treating patients with routine as well as rare and complicated vascular and thrombotic disorders. I encourage shared decision-making with patients in planning their treatment.”

Leisure Activities: In his spare time, Dr. Cameron enjoys spending time with his family, running, cycling, and he is an avid martial artist.  He reached the rank of black belt second Dan in taekwondo with a class two referee and an instructor's certificate, and he was once the champion of his native country of Scotland.

Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 3/30/2022, Dr. Cameron has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities.

My wife and I drove 9 hours to see Dr. Cameron. We were very happy with our decision to go to Cleveland Clinic. Dr Cameron was very thorough and explained complex medical conditions in a way we could fully understand. He also clearly answered all the questions we had. When we left the CC, we understood fully about my heart condition. Before our visit, we had significant concerns about my cardiovascular health risks. Now we can enjoy our lives much more since we understand my heart condition better. We also impressed with the efficiency of work flow at the CC. Thank you!
