“We are fortunate that at Hospital for Special Surgery we can focus our imaging expertise to the musculoskeletal system,” said Dr. Helene Pavlov, Chief, Department of Radiology and Imaging. “The clinical volume and variety of clinical conditions and the collaboration with our outstanding clinical colleagues create unparalleled forums for patient care, clinical advances and research opportunities.
Drs. Pavlov, Potter and Saboeiro are board-certified radiologists with specific expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. These doctors, along with the entire team of radiologists in the Department, publish regularly and are invited to speak at medical conferences around the country and worldwide. They have received numerous teaching and research awards and grants and are nationally recognized for their accomplishments in musculoskeletal imaging. The ongoing collaborative research with other HSS physicians and surgeons helps to ensure that future patients will continue to benefit from the most advanced imaging protocols and techniques.
“I am proud that the achievements of our faculty members at Hospital for Special Surgery Department of Radiology and Imaging have been recognized by New York Magazine,” continued Dr. Pavlov.
A New York City research and information company, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., conducts the research and surveying that help to determine which doctors appear on the list. To select the doctors, Castle Connolly sends out 12,000 nomination forms to medical professionals in New York City, Westchester County, Long Island and portions of New Jersey and Connecticut. The recipients include randomly selected board-certified doctors; all doctors listed in the previous edition of Castle Connolly’s annual guidebook; and, from every hospital in the area, the president or CEO, the vice-president of medical affairs and up to eight chiefs of service in departments from surgery to pediatrics. The forms ask recipients to nominate those doctors who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields—especially those to whom they would refer their own patients and family members (doctors are asked not to nominate themselves; nominations are kept confidential)
