Dr. Geoffrey Westrich Honored as Top Orthopedic Surgeon in New York Magazine's "Best Doctors" Issue

Dr. Geoffrey Westrich has been named a top orthopedic surgeon in New York magazine's latest guide to the "Best Doctors in New York."

 
PRLog - Jul. 8, 2011 - GREAT NECK, N.Y. -- Dr. Geoffrey Westrich has been named a top orthopedic surgeon in New York magazine's latest guide to the "Best Doctors in New York."  Dr. Westrich, an orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, dedicates his practice exclusively to hip and knee injuries and diseases, such as arthritis. In addition to his office at the Manhattan hospital, Dr. Westrich sees patients at an affiliated office in Fresh Meadows, Queens.

Physicians named in the “Best Doctors” guide are selected based on a survey of their peers, taking into account professional qualifications, reputation and patient care skills, according to New York magazine. Making the list is a highly competitive process.

"It’s an honor and a privilege to be among the select group of physicians chosen for this guide," said Dr. Westrich, co-director of joint replacement research at Hospital for Special Surgery and associate professor of orthopedic surgery at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

Dr. Westrich has special expertise in hip and knee injuries and diseases, arthritis management, mini-incision joint replacement, minimally invasive hip and knee surgery, complex hip and knee reconstruction and revision surgery, including the most difficult cases.  He is considered a leading researcher in blood clot prevention following joint replacement and has received numerous awards for his work.  

Dr. Westrich’s successful efforts to save a woman’s leg from amputation, after five other doctors said it was hopeless, were featured as a “medical miracle” in New York magazine and on various online and television news reports. He is often called upon by the media for his expertise.

In addition to his medical degree, which he received from Tufts University School
of Medicine, Dr. Westrich has a background in engineering. Upon graduating from Tufts  
School of Engineering, he was invited to join Eta Kappa Nu, a prestigious engineering honors society. His degree in engineering comes into play when he is called on to help design new and improved joint replacements and surgical instrumentation.

Along with the prestigious New York magazine guide, Dr. Westrich is consistently named a leading physician in the Castle Connolly Medical guides How to Find the Best Doctors in New York and America's Top Doctors.
