A lot of teams do this? I know they are already paying those docs but it makes no sense. Do it there and have the Docs in NY read it."

Exactly.

Hospital for Special Surgery is the orthopedic teaching hospital of Cornell Medical School. Because they're training the (Ivy League) doctors of tomorrow they have to have absolute state-of-the-art equipment & top notch professors/ doctors.

So while there's MRI equipment in FLA it's probably at least a "generation" older than what HSS has in terms of technology. HSS probably also has other diagnostic equipment that hospitals down there don't even have.

Also it's not just a matter of reading an MRI. Doctors always want to examine the patient personally. Sometimes things show up in a physical examination that might not get noticed looking at an X-ray or MRI.

Had my ankle operated on at HSS. Was a brand new procedure when I had it done. Now it's the norm I'm told. Never a day's trouble since. Also know a guy that had to have his hip operated on when he was about 9 & had it done at HSS. In his 50s now & his exercise is running.



I think Mets used NYU Hospital when they made several of those misdiagnoses.

They have best MRI systems and can guide the Cortisone shot to the right spot. Last year Wright & Hairston had it done. Both played the whole season. Murphy will be fine.
