Dr. Denis Roy receives the 2021 Canadian Cardiovascular Society Research Achievement Award

October 21, 2021

Dr. Denis-Roy, a cardiologist emeritus at the Montreal Heart Institute (MHI), received the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) Research Achievement Award yesterday at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress 2021. This prestigious award is given annually to an established investigator working on an aspect of cardiovascular research in Canada.

Canada’s Interventional Electrophysiology Pioneer

The youngest chief of the Cardiology Department at the MHI, Dr. Roy, created the interventional electrophysiology service in the 1980s. Under his management, the first surgical and catheter-based arrhythmia treatment procedures were performed, and patients were given access to new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in cardiac electrophysiology.

His leadership in this field of cardiology has earned him the very first Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Heart Rhythm Society as well as the Persillier-Lachapelle Award from the Ministry of Health and Social Services of the Government of Quebec.
