Valeriy Kheyfits, M.D. - Assistant Professor of Radiology/Imaging Sciences at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry


A specialist in Musculoskeletal Imaging, Dr. Kheyfits works closely with orthopaedic surgeons to optimize treatment for their patients. He is a strong proponent of using the imaging sciences as a preventive tool. He often uses his radiological skill to identify meniscus tears, which helps to prevent the development of arthritis or the need for joint replacement surgery later on.
