    Dr. Levin is a cardiac anesthesiologist and the Director of Research for the Division of Informatics in the Department of Anesthesiology.  His research interest lies in leveraging large data sets of intraoperative physiological data to reduce morbidity and mortality and enhance patient safety during the perioperative period.  Over the past several years, along with his colleague Dr. Patrick J. McCormick he has designed and implemented a large perioperative data warehouse containing detailed pre-, post-, and intra-operative information, including high resolution physiological data captured from intraoperative monitoring devices, for over 500,000 surgical cases.  This anesthesia data warehouse continues to grow at a rate of 50,000 cases per year as new case data is automatically added on a real time basis.

    Through his multi-disciplinary collaborations with other researchers in the Icahn School of Medicine, Dr. Levin is pushing the boundaries of perioperative research in order to answer previously un-addressable questions on the phenotype and genotype of the response to anesthetic and surgical stress.  Dr. Levin is affiliated with The Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine and collaborates closely with fellow IPM member Dr. Eimear Kenny.  Together they were recently awarded a prestigious starter grant from the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists.  Dr. Levin has also been collaborating with members of Dr. Joel Dudley's lab on several initiatives looking to leverage clinical and administrative hospital-wide data in order to improve the early detection of unexpected deteriorations in clinical status among inpatients.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Levin did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2014 and/or 2015: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.

Insurance Information

Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).

Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.

Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
