Professor of OB/GYN
NYU Grossman School of Medicine
New York, New York, United States
Professor Steven Goldstein has had a long illustrious career that has literally helped change the way gynecology is practiced. He has done this through his interest in gynecologic ultrasound and through clinical observations coupled with a superb ability to teach, explain and help test those observations. His contribution as an invited expert for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ Green Journal entitled “Modern Evaluation of the Endometrium” is the cornerstone for a new paradigm for evaluating uterine bleeding utilizing transvaginal ultrasound rather than blind endometrial sampling, which previously was the standard in the United States for women with postmenopausal bleeding. He described the benign nature of simple postmenopausal adnexal cysts 20 years before expectant management finally became the absolute standard. This was accomplished, not in small part by his writings and workings through the Gynecologic Practice Committee of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He changed how we view endometrial fluid collections in postmenopausal women when these are found on transvaginal ultrasound. He described the unusual ultrasound appearance of glandular cystic atrophy that tamoxifen and other SERMs can produce in the uterus which was being mistaken for endometrial pathology. He invented a catheter for sonohysterography and has championed that technique for better, less invasive intrauterine diagnoses. He literally taught an entire generation of gynecologists how to do transvaginal ultrasound when it was first introduced, having written the second book ever on transvaginal ultrasound, and the first book ever, dedicated to simply gynecologic ultrasound. His skill as a teacher and lecturer have resulted in his being an invited speaker all over the world. He is past President and Fellow of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine. He maintains a busy clinical practice and is Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at New York University Grossman School of Medicine.
