Dr. Gordon’s research is focused on two main areas: the treatment of uterine fibroids by minimally invasive techniques such as uterine artery embolization, clinical follow-up of patients after UAE, and investigating the contribution and importance of the ovarian arteries in patients undergoing UAE, which is key for those patients wishing to maintain fertility. Another interest is the use of expandable metallic stents in the airways to treat obstructions of a benign type such as post lung transplantation, relapsing polychondritis, post-intubation structures and a variety of other entities.
Dr. Gordon has published over 200 articles based on his research and studies. He has written 6 book chapters and 36 abstracts.
