Dr. Stone grew up in the Shaker Heights suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. His mother was a housewife who had gone to Ohio State University at the age of 15 before meeting his father, who owned an advertising firm. Dr. Stone claims to have had an innate curiosity for how things work from a very young age, which led him to research science and conduct experiments throughout his youth in the home chemistry lab of his parents’ garage. He met his wife, Dr. Amy E. Stone, MD, whilst completing his cardiology fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Dr. Gregg Stone currently resides in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Dr. Stone completed high school in Ohio, where his principal interest was chemistry, before continuing his study at the University of Michigan where he discovered his interest in medical research. He then studied his medical degree at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, under the tutelage of renowned medical professionals such as Dr. Myron Weisfeldt. After his education at John Hopkins University, Dr. Stone then commenced his internship and residency at NewYork-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center, after which he carried out two cardiology fellowships; one at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles, under the late Dr. Jeremy Swan, and a second at the Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas under the tutelage of the late Dr. Geoffrey O. Hartzler.
Dr. Stone has become a leading expert in interventional cardiology and is one of the most widely cited researchers on the topic. He has served as the principal investigator for approximately 100 national and international multicenter randomized trials, has delivered thousands of lectures internationally, and has authored over 2,000 book chapters, manuscripts and abstracts published in peer-reviewed literature.
Dr. Stone previously worked as the Director of Interventional Cardiology at the Cardiovascular Institute at El Camino Hospital and Stanford University Medical Center in California, where he set up a research division of around 11 physicians and became involved with Primary Angioplasty in Myocardial Infarction (PAMI) studies.
He then moved to Washington D.C. to work as the Director of the Cardiovascular Training and Education Center at the Washington Hospital Center, at the request of Dr. Martin Leon. Dr. Stone worked there for a year, where he would spend up to 4 hours a day with the world’s leading cardiology experts learning about interventional cardiology and advancing research in the area. He also became a Director of the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT), which is the world's largest symposium focused on interventional cardiology and vascular medicine. Dr. Stone then brought the whole Cardiovascular Research Foundation to New York and partnered with Lenox Hill Hospital, where he furthered his research into interventional cardiology.
Big news followed next, as Dr. Gregg Stone followed Dr. Jeffrey Moses and Dr. Martin Leon to move uptown to Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital, where he was appointed Director of Cardiovascular Research and Education at the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy, and Professor of Medicine at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Dr. Stone now fulfills the position of Professor of Medicine and Professor of Population Health Sciences and Policy at The Zena and Michael A. Wiener Cardiovascular Institute, Icahn School of Medicine, at Mount Sinai, as well as being the Director of Academic Affairs for Mount Sinai Heart.
