Biography

About Kenneth Fromkin, MD

Kenneth R. Fromkin, MD, FACC, FSCAI, was born and raised in northern New Jersey. He has been with Cleveland Clinic Florida since 2001, initially as Assistant Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, and since 2007, as Director of Invasive and Interventional Cardiology.

Dr. Fromkin performs all aspects of interventional cardiology including angioplasty, stenting, hemodynamic assessments, intravascular ultrasound, fractional flow reserve procedures, thrombectomy, rotational atherectomy, intra-aortic balloon pump, treatment of ACS, and primary PCI for acute MI.  He specializes in complex catheter-based coronary artery interventions for difficult lesions, multivessel coronary artery disease, left main disease in nonsurgical patients, rotational atherectomy, degenerated bypass graft interventions, balloon pump-supported procedures and chronic total occlusions including advanced retrograde technique. He provides second opinions for complex coronary artery disease and for technically complex or difficult interventions.  He also performs peripheral arterial interventions of the distal aorta, renal arteries, subclavian arteries, iliac arteries, femoral arteries, and of the arteries of the legs for the treatment of claudication and/or critical limb ischemia.  He does not stent carotid arteries.

Dr. Fromkin is a 1990 graduate of The Johns Hopkins University, where he earned a BA in Biology.  He graduated from The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine in 1994, and completed a 3 year residency in Internal Medicine at Yale-New Haven Hospital in 1997. He then completed a 3 year Cardiovascular Disease fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell, in 2000 and then completed a second fellowship in Interventional cardiology, also at New York Presbyterian, Weill Cornell, in 2001.  He has been with Cleveland Clinic Florida since completion of his second fellowship in 2001.

Dr. Fromkin is board-certified and recertified in both Cardiovascular Disease and in Interventional Cardiology. Dr. Fromkin's interests lie in the catheter-based techniques of coronary artery and peripheral artery angiography and intervention. In particular, he specializes in complex and difficult interventional cardiology and peripheral arterial angiography cases and welcomes second opinions in these areas. 

Dr. Fromkin has been selected as a Castle Connolly regional Top Doctor in Interventional Cardiology from 2008-2011.  He has also been selected as one of America's Top Cardiologists by Consumer's Research Council of America from 2007-2011.

Dr. Fromkin is also an instructor and mentor for cardiology fellows from Cleveland Clinic Florida's fully accredited cardiology fellowship in the cardiac catheterization laboratory and in inpatient and outpatient cardiology settings.

Innovations & Patents

  • Dr. Fromkin has been involved in some of the original studies of the hybrid coronary artery revascularization strategy which combines an interventional cardiology approach with a minimally invasive surgical approach to address multivessel coronary artery disease. In this treatment strategy, PCI and stenting of non-LAD vessels is combined with single-vessel minimally invasive closed chest robotic bypass surgery to achieve complete coronary artery revascularization without the need for traditional open chest bypass surgery. This research was highlighted at the American College of Cardiology's 52nd Annual Scientific Session at a press conference showcasing the most noteworthy abstracts presented at that meeting. Many patients with multivessel coronary artery disease have been helped by this strategy of revascularization and have avoided sternotomy while still having all of their coronary artery lesions addressed.

Best in hospital experience I've ever had, incl MGH, Vanderbuilt, Cornell Weill, Columbia Presbyterian. From the ease of adjacent parking, the magnificent modern functional architecture, the efficient check-in desk (Angela, in particular, at the Cardiac Clinic) to being ushered in just after I checked in on tine for my 1:30 appt with Dr Fromkin by Bridgette, his nurse, to the fastest and most efficient EKG test prior to Dr entering the room, and finally Dr. Fromkin was well worth the 1hr ride from my home in Palm Beach. He spent an unhurried half-hour with me and discussed my diagnosis in complete detail and what to do going forward in a very calm and measured way. Answered all my questions that my prior cardiologist did not and had no time for me, nor could I find answers from Dr. Google. Very clear that even if Dr Fromkin's reputation hadn't preceeded him that he was a 5 star guy. I felt immensely relieved after my appointment with him. Also no problem phoning office up post-appointment and having my visit records also sent to my Primary MDVIP doc, Bob Wacks, M.D. In W/ Palm. In short, the first time I went to a hospital and everything was a pleasure. No better than that. Thanks very much.
