He is a long-standing member of the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology, the American Medical Association, and the Heart Rhythm Society. He has held several academic appointments: Instructor in Cell Biology at University of Buenos Aires (1998-2002), Instructor in Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine (2003-2005), Clinical Fellow in Medicine at Harvard Medical School (2005-2008)

Dr. Juan Viles-Gonzalez graduated with distinction from University of Buenos Aires, where he was awarded the Honor Diploma for top student in the graduating class. He subsequently won a Scholarship to perform the research component of his PhD at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, where he conducted research projects in the areas of Atherothrombosis, Anticoagulation and Cardiovascular Imaging under the mentorship of Dr. Valentin Fuster. Subsequently, he completed his Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He then completed his Fellowship in Cardiovascular Medicine under the supervision of Dr. Valentin Fuster at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. This was followed by a two-year Fellowship in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology under Dr. Vivek Reddy at Mount Sinai Medical Center where he gained expertise in ablation of complex arrhythmias (Supraventricular Tachycardias, Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia), cardiac device implantation, lead extractions, and left atrial appendage occlusion for stroke prevention.
In addition to his hospital practice, Dr. Viles-Gonzalez treats ambulatory patients with a broad spectrum of cardiac conditions, including atrial fibrillation, supraventricular and ventricular tachycardias, congestive heart failure, and patients requiring cardiac devices (pacemakers and defibrillators).
His area of research interest is arrhythmias in patients with cardiomyopathies, atrial fibrillation, stroke prevention and anticoagulation. He has published widely in the field of cardiology and cardiac arrhythmias. He is the author of over forty scientific articles, several book chapters and has presented over fifty abstracts at international scientific meetings. Dr. Viles-Gonzalez is ad-hoc reviewer for several scientific journals including Circulation, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Journal, Expert Opinion on Investigational Drugs, American Journal of Cardiovascular Drugs, Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis.
