Drs. Roye and Hyman – Patients Choice Physicians
Joshua Hyman, MD, Columbia Orthopedics provider at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of New York-Presbyterian and associate professor of Clinical Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons was recently presented with an American Registry “Patient Choice Award.” The award reflects the exceptionally high praise that Dr. Hyman received through online feedback from his patients.
Treating smaller patients means everything has to be smaller - implants, instruments and apparel. The same idea has to be applied to radiation. “While digital x-rays have evolved to decrease radiation exposure, less is obviously better,” said Dr. Michael G. Vitale, Ana Lucia Professor of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center. “If it was my child, I would not settle for anything less and that same philosophy drives all my care for my patients.”
Dr. David P. Roye, Jr. recently traveled to the Dominican Republic, at the invitation of the First Lady of the Republic, Candida Montilla de Medina, to serve as keynote speaker at the Comprehensive Care Center for Disability (CAID).
