Laureate of the medical school Francois Rabelais in Tours, France and diplomate of the medical school Pitie-Salpetriere in Paris, France, he did clinical sub-internships in medicine at Francois Rabelais University. and in medicine, neurology and physical medicine and rehabilitation at Northwestern University. He trained as an intern in general and emergency medicine in Paris, in internal medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and then completed his residency in neurology at Stanford University. Dr Kapinos has developed sub-specialty skills in stroke at the NIH, in neurosurgical critical care at UCLA, in critical care epilepsy at Columbia University and in stroke imaging at Georgetown University. Finally, he completed a fellowship in neurocritical care at New York Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia and Cornell Universities.
Dr Kapinos is a board certified neurologist, board eligible neurointensivist and is licensed in the states of California and New York. He speaks English and French fluently.
The field of practice of Dr Kapinos is neurocritical care, a new discipline at the intersection of vascular neurology, neurological surgery, endovascular interventional neuroradiology, anesthesia and critical care and emergency medicine. His focus is on improving outcomes of patients with neurological life-threatening illnesses. Neurointensivists provide specialized medical support, in intensive care units, to critically ill patients with neurological insult, whether this insult is primary or secondary and intertwined with other systems failures.
The research interests of Dr Kapinos cover prognostication in neurocritical care, multimodal monitoring, prediction of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke complications by MRI, spectroscopy of neurotransmitters imbalances, therapeutic hypothermia, management of intracranial hypertension, traumatic brain injury, subarachnoid hemorrhage and status epilepticus.
Dr Kapinos is ACLS and ATLS certified. This inspired his foundation of a revived ANLS, for which he is copyright and trademark holder, while instigating the ENLS program. Dr Kapinos is an advocacy leader for his discipline and his patients suffering from brain injury, as a select graduate from the AAN Palatucci Forum, while being also an AHA advocate through the You're the Cure network.
