Joshua E. Hyman, MD, is a nationally and globally renowned specialist in the care of children with cerebral palsy and lower extremity deformity. His clinical interests as a pediatric orthopedic surgeon also include hip diseases and dysplasia, neuromuscular disorders, limb length differences, and complex fracture care.

As Clinical Director of the Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center, he helps oversee a team of medical professionals that carefully designs and executes personalized treatment programs for each and every patient to achieve the best possible outcomes. He is a staunch advocate for children with cerebral palsy, believing that they, like all children, require comprehensive healthcare. He is dedicated to ensuring the delivery of this high-quality care across the lifespan for patients with CP while also addressing the concerns of their families.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Hyman is a prolific scholar, dedicated medical educator, and menor. He is actively involved in research trials on clubfoot, hip disorders, and neuromuscular diseases in pediatric patients. He is a founding member of the International Perthes Study Group and a member of the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. In 2013, he was awarded the Charles S. Neer “Teacher of the Year” award in 2013 for his enthusiasm, passion, and dedication to resident education. Additionally, he serves as Director of the surgical fellowship in Pediatric Orthopedics & Spine at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital.

Dr. Hyman also serves multiple roles within the national and international governance of orthopedic surgery. He is a past-president of the International Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (SICOT) – US and serves on the Executive Board of SICOT and its Foundation. He is a trustee of the World Orthopaedic Concern – an international organization focused on improving orthopaedic care in low- and middle-income countries. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine and is their representative on the International Alliance of Academies of Childhood Disability.

Dr. Hyman is committed to improving the musculoskeletal health of children not only in the US, but also in medically under-resourced regions throughout the world. As Medical Director of the Children of China Pediatrics Foundation, Dr. Hyman travels to China annually to perform surgery on disabled children living in orphanages and provides clinical training and education to Chinese surgeons. He is also co-founder and medical director of Miraclefeet, an international NGO focused on promoting the care of children with clubfoot in medically under-resourced regions.

Dr. Hyman is consistently listed among NY Magazine and Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors.

An avid skier, sailor, and cyclist, his greatest pleasure is participating in these activities with his wife and four children.
