Dr. Roy Gordon is a leader in the field of interventional radiology. He performed the first uterine artery embolization at UCSF in 1998 and was part of the team that popularized the clinical use of transjugular intrahepatic portal venous stenting. Gordon has wide experience in biliary tract interventions and in stenting of the tracheobronchial tree. He is also interested in embolic treatment of varicoceles and recanalization of fallopian tubes.

Gordon attended medical school at Oxford University and Middlesex Hospital in England and held residencies in urology and radiology in Jerusalem and Philadelphia where he completed his fellowship in Interventional Radiology. Before coming to the United States, Gordon was chairman of radiology at the Hebrew University, Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem. As Associate Chair for Safety in the department of radiology at UCSF, Dr. Gordon oversees all aspects of patient safety, and is head of the departmental safety committee which meets every two weeks. This committee routinely monitors measures of patient safety throughout the department and responds both pro-actively and reactively to any concerns regarding patient safety that arise in the department.
