RESEARCH
Dr. Gobin was a pioneer in the technique of inserting coils into aneurysms to prevent their growth. He performed the first Guglielmi Detachable Coil (GDC) embolization in France. At UCLA, he was a member of the research team that clinically evaluated the GDC coil technology, establishing its effectiveness for the treatment of cerebral aneurysms. He then conceived and developed an endovascular device, the Concentric Retriever, for cerebral embolectomy to treat acute stroke. More recently, he was part of the team that has developed intraarterial chemotherapy (chemosurgery) to treat retinoblastoma, an eye cancer in children.
