Fayetteville, AR — Michael D. Green, MD, FACC, is being recognized by Continental Who’s Who as a Top Cardiologist for his years of exceptional work as an Interventional Cardiologist and for his work at Northwest Health Medical Center.
A highly-trained Interventional Cardiologist with EP training, Dr. Green specializes in bi-ventricular assist devices and defibrillators. He has worked in the field for over thirty years, helping countless patients. He diagnoses and treats cardiovascular diseases, congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and electrophysiology. In his current capacity, he works at Northwest Health Medical Center, one of the largest health systems in Arkansas. Northwest Health Medical Center provides inpatient care, outpatient care, emergency services, diagnostic care, imaging, medical treatment, and surgical services.
Dr. Green has been at Northwest Health Medical Center for 25 years. He is board-certified in both Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a doctor-led non-profit organization driven by physicians wanting to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.
To train for his long and successful career, Dr. Green studied at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, earning a Bachelor of Science in Zoology. He then earned his Medical degree in 1989 and completed an Internal Medicine residency in 1992 at the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences in Little Rock. He then completed a Fellowship in Cardiovascular Medicine from the University of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City in 1996.
Dr. Green is on the Advisory Board for Abiomed, Inc. During his time on the Advisory Board, he worked on two landmark global studies that involved artificial heart devices. He gives speeches on this work and other topics during speaking engagements. Dr. Green led the establishment of Northwest Arkansas’s first Congestive Heart Failure Center, and the first Accredited Chest Pain Center at Northwest Health Medical Center – Springdale.
Dr. Green also published the Cardiogenic Shock Initiative with other national US leaders in the Cardiology field. In the past, patients in shock in the setting of acute myocardial infarction had an 80% mortality rate. When the study was published, it found that 72% of patients in the same setting were successfully discharged from the hospital. As a cardiac survivor himself, Dr. Green is especially in-tune to the physical and mental challenges patients can face. One of the most essential pieces of Dr. Green’s life work has been implanting the first bi-ventricular device in the state of Arkansas.
Other life accomplishments include his service in the National Guard, during which he was instrumental in assisting in the recovery efforts of the Oklahoma City bombing. He has achieved the rank of Captain in the National Guard. He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC) and a member of the American Heart Association.
Dr. Green would like to dedicate this honorable recognition to Dwight Reynolds, MD, his mentor at the University of Oklahoma and President of the National Association of Electrophysiologists; and In Memory of Charles Inlow, MD, who was his predecessor and inspiration to become a physician when Dr. Green was an orderly at Northwest Health Medical Center.
