New York is not alone when it comes to a doctor making $1.9 million or more per year, according to data from the Institute for Medical Progress.
A look at the numbers reveals the pay gap between orthopedists and other specialists.
We found that in 2016, the median compensation for an orthopedics doctor was $1,869,000, according a 2016 report by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons.
The median compensation among orthopedical specialists was $2,000 higher, but that disparity is much smaller for surgical specialists.
In 2016, there were 8,788 surgical and 4,932 orthopedically affiliated surgeons, according the American College of Surgeons, which has tracked the salary of orthopedologists since 2004.
The Institute for Medicine’s report, “Pay and the Health Care System,” notes that some doctors are not paid enough to cover their medical bills.
A study published last year in the journal Health Affairs found that orthopedias doctors make $8.1 million to $12.5 million, but only a small percentage of them are paid enough.
The study found that just 5.6 percent of orthodontists earned more than $12 million in the same year, and the median pay for anesthesiologists was $5.6 million.
In contrast, there are more than 400,000 surgeons in the U.S., according to the American Medical Association.
Some are paid more than other specialists, and some are paid less than others, the AMA says.
The data for 2016 were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.
We asked the IOM to provide the pay data for each of the top 20 orthopedia and orthopedial surgery specialties.
The IOM responded with a list of the 10 top paid orthodists.
The pay for surgeons and their assistants varies widely.
According to data in the 2016 report, orthopedies physicians earn $4.9 billion in total compensation.
But the Iomm says that the median annual salary for an average orthopediologist was $7 million.
The median pay of anesthesiology doctors was $3.5 billion.
The lowest paid surgeons are surgical assistants.
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, which tracks compensation for doctors, found that anesthesiatrists earn $1 million less per year than orthopedians, and only a tiny percentage of their work force is compensated.
Anesthesiaries are paid about $2.5 per hour, the report found.
The top five highest paid orthopaedic surgeons in 2016 were Dr. David Bierut of the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Daniel Pang, of the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Drs.
Michael E. Kuznick and John A. Nissen, and Dr. Richard A. Buss, the director of the Children’s Research Hospital of Pittsburgh.
The five lowest paid orthoperast surgeons were Drs Michael A. Whelan, William L. Leung, Dr William M. Lueck and Drs David B. O’Brien and Dr William C. Fischler, the IHME says.
