Dr. Barry D. Rutherford, the Director of Interventional Cardiology Research Program at Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City, Missouri, has been awarded the 6th TCTAP Award ‘Master of the Masters’ held on April 27th for his outstanding achievement in the field of interventional cardiology and contribution to the growth of CardioVascular Summit-TCTAP over the years.

TCTAP Award ‘Master of the Masters’ has been bestowed upon the world-renowned interventional cardiologists who have built undisputed recognition in the field of interventional cardiology and TCTAP since 2011.

Dr. Rutherford, born in Gore, graduated Otago Medical School Dunedin, New Zealand in 1963. After moving to the U.S., he came to stand out as an educator, extending his teaching career at Mayo Medical School, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. His passion for fostering the young generation has continued on without ceasing and he is currently a Professor of Medicine at University of Missouri in Kansas City, Missouri. He has delivered more than 230 invited lectures across the world so far.

Additionally, he has led the interventional teaching courses at the Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City with Dr. Geoffrey O. Hartzler and that was the root of current Geoffrey O. Hartzler Interventional Cardiology Symposium. Dr. Spencer B. King who is an old friend of Dr. Rutherford and also the recipient of the 5th Master of the Masters Award, described him in the words below. "He has been effective as the leader of one of the most competitive training programs in interventional cardiology. He has exhibited style and grace in training people in interventional cardiology."

Dr. Rutherford surprised the medical society not only with his enthusiasm towards education but also with his performance as an operator. He greatly contributed to the development of techniques for direct balloon angioplasty in acute myocardial infarction and multi-vessel angioplasty. His pioneer spirit came to fruition when he won the TCT 2012 Geoffrey O. Hartzler Master Clinical Operator Award during the 24th annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium, which consolidated his power in the field.

Asking a fundamental question to the field of interventional cardiology -Are we really saving lives in the long term? -, Dr. Rutherford continues to move forward to enrich interventional cardiology society and leaving an admirable precedent even at this moment.
