Dr. Gregory Saboeiro Named Chief, Division of Interventional Radiology and Ultrasound, at Hospital for Special Surgery
The Department of Radiology and Imaging at Hospital for Special Surgery has been restructured with Dr. Gregory Saboeiro being appointed Chief, Division of Interventional Radiology and Ultrasound, he was previously Chief of Interventional Radiology and CT. Dr. Eric A. Bogner will take on the role as Chief, Division of Computed Tomography (CT). Dr. Helene Pavlov, Radiologist-in-Chief, made the announcements.
“The restructuring gives referring physicians better access to the diagnostic and clinical offerings in the Department and provides patients entree to the largest team of subspecialty trained academic musculoskeletal radiologists,” said Dr. Pavlov.
Dr. Saboeiro’s new position will allow the department to better coordinate interventional services and manage the high volume of musculoskeletal interventional procedures being performed under Ultrasound guidance. The team of radiologists, sonographers and technologists provides the most advanced clinical imaging and diagnostic expertise supported by cutting edge evidence-based research.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Saboeiro assume these responsibilities in the Department as he has played a key role in expanding our Interventional Radiology procedure offerings using Ultrasound guidance,” said Dr. Pavlov. “We are also pleased that Dr. Bogner will lead the CT Division in providing dedicated musculoskeletal imaging of the joints and spine. In addition we have streamlined processes by allowing for same or next day add-on appointments, which helps to ensure that quality patient care is provided in a timely manner.”
“One of my key interests over the course of my career has been the use of Ultrasound for diagnosis and treatment. I am looking forward to leading this area for the Department and our referring physicians to further benefit the patients that we see every day,” said Dr. Saboeiro. "Our team has a number of on-going investigations evaluating the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) to determine the effectiveness of this non surgical approach and we are looking at blood flow and vascularity to assess disease activity and response to treatment. Along with other radiology and clinical colleagues, additional investigations involving Ultrasound include elastography, a non-invasive imaging technique to evaluate tendons for early degeneration and extent of tendon abnormality; various spine interventions, and vascular imaging.”
Board-Certified for more than 18 years, Dr. Saboeiro, who has been with Hospital for Special Surgery since 2005, specializes in Musculoskeletal Radiology, Interventional Radiology and Vascular Imaging. Dr. Saboeiro is published in peer reviewed medical journals and presents at national meetings and scientific assemblies. He has completed fellowships in Musculoskeletal Radiology at Hospital for Special Surgery and in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University of St. Louis. He has been named repeatedly in New York Magazine’s Best Doctors issue.
Dr. Bogner has been with Hospital for Special Surgery since 2005. He is Board-Certified and specializes in musculoskeletal radiology. He completed a musculoskeletal imaging fellowship at the Medical College of Virginia where he also completed his residency. He has broad experience focusing particularly on interventional spinal procedures and is the author of one of the most popular features on the Hospital for Special Surgery web site titled “What’s The Diagnosis.” This feature is available to patients, professionals and anyone who is interested in musculoskeletal presentations of various conditions.
Dr. Bogner and the CT team of radiologists and technologists are working on hardware updates and software applications to assure the lowest achievable CT radiation dosage without sacrificing image quality or diagnostic accuracy. The team is also working on the development of procedures that will allow radiologists to better image metal orthopedic hardware using CT. Limiting radiation exposure, consistently monitoring dosage and thoroughly evaluating the need for a CT imaging examination are all top priorities for the CT division. Dr. Bogner is also active in performing peer review assessment to ensure consistent top quality imaging and detailed diagnostic CT accuracy.
Dr. Saboeiro was featured in the August 2011 issue of NEWS-Line for Radiology Professionals.
