His clinical interests also include hip diseases and dysplasia, complex pediatric spinal disorders (scoliosis), limb length differences, club foot, and fractures. As Associate Director of the Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center, Dr. Hyman 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 pediatric patients with Cerebral Palsy (CP), 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. Dr. Hyman's research focuses on identifying methods to measure quality of life in children. He is also actively involved in research trials on clubfoot, scoliosis, and neuromuscular diseases in pediatric patients.

In addition to excelling as a clinician and researcher, Dr. Hyman is a well-respected medical educator and mentor. Columbia University presented him with the Charles S. Neer "Teacher of the Year" award in 2013 for his enthusiasm, passion, and dedication to resident education.
