Dr. Douglas Mintz is a radiologist specializing in imaging the musculoskeletal system. His primary expertise is in interpreting magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations, but he also has expertise in radiographs (X-rays), computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and image-guided procedures.
Dr. Mintzís interests coincide with the hospitalís orthopaedic specialties. He has a particular interest in imaging tumors; peripheral nerves; and spine, pelvic, and hip problems. Sports injuries make up a large part of his practice.
With an emphasis on clinical practice and teaching, he has lectured nationally and internationally, published in journals and textbooks, and participated in care of many professional athletes. As part of his research responsibilities, he reviews papers for journals, grades abstracts for national radiology meetings, and evaluates future radiologists for the American Board of Radiology.
Dr. Mintz completed his musculoskeletal radiology fellowship at Hospital for Special Surgery and subsequently joined the HSS staff. He spent a short time in Miami, Florida where he worked with the Dolphins, the Panthers, and the NBA-champion Miami Heat, but has been with HSS the majority of his career.
