One of the goals of Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is to advance the science of orthopedic surgery, rheumatology, and related disciplines for the benefit of patients. Physicians at HSS may collaborate with outside companies for education, research and medical advances. HSS supports this collaboration in order to foster medical breakthroughs; however HSS also believes that these collaborations must be disclosed.
As part of the disclosure process, this website lists physician collaborations with outside companies if payments were received during the prior year, or if the HSS physician currently receives payment. The disclosures are provided by information provided by the physician and other sources and are updated regularly. Further information may be available on individual company websites.
Below are the healthcare industry relationships reported by Dr. Potter as of March 27, 2013.
By disclosing the collaborations of HSS physicians with industry on this website, HSS and its physicians make this information available to their patients and the public, thus creating a transparent environment for those who are interested in this information. Further, HSS’ Conflicts of Interest Policy does not permit physicians to collect royalties on products developed by him/her that are used on patients at HSS.
Patients should feel free to ask their HSS physicians questions about these relationships.

Active Research support for orthopaedic applications of MRI
Designing a Meniscal Substitute Through An Integrated Experimental Computational and Statistical Approach the major goal is to define the relationship between meniscal material and structural properties and joint contact mechanics under multiple physiological activities across a range of patient populations.
Role: Consultant; Principal investigator: Suzanne Maher PhD
Dr. Potter is the Coleman Chair in MRI research. Her prior and current research interests lie in the use of quantitative MR imaging as a biomarker for assessment of early depletion of matrix from cartilage and fibrocartilage. Dr. Potter is currently funded for the use of specialized quantitative MR techniques as a biomarker to assess the integrity of meniscal repair. Additional research interests involved the use of modified MR pulse sequences to assess different adverse synovial responses to orthopaedic implants and biomaterials. She is the co-recipient of the AOA research award, the Cabaud award for excellence in basic science research from the AOSSM and the Nicholas Andry award from the ABJS. She has continuously served on several NIH/NIAMS Study Sections since 2007, the research committee of the AOSSM, and is funded for both clinical and basic science MRI research by the NIH-NIAMS, industry and educational granting agencies. Many of her current basic science imaging projects have been successfully transported into clinical use and implementation.
