Daniel Maklansky, MD, MSH 62’ (April 25, 1932 – June 8, 2019)
Dr. Daniel Maklansky passed away on June 8, 2019. A graduate of New York University and of the State University of New York Downstate Medical School, Dr. Maklansky was an attending physician at the Mount Sinai Hospital; an Associate Professor of Radiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; and a past President of the New York Roentgen Society. Dr. Maklansky began his association with Mount Sinai with a residency in 1959, and received the hospital’s highest honor, the Jacobi Medallion, earlier this spring. A video tribute made on the occasion of his Jacobi Award can be found here.
He wrote numerous peer reviewed publications, and co- authored two major radiologic text books on the colon and the stomach. He trained countless medical students and residents, and diagnosed tens of thousands of patients during 60 years of private practice. The care and conscientiousness he displayed in his professional life was matched by the kindness, warmth, and altruism of his personal endeavors. An exceptional physician, a true polymath, a gifted raconteur, a devoted husband, and a loving and generous family man, Daniel Maklansky left the world a better place for so many deeply appreciative survivors, including his beloved wife Barbara; his sons Michael, Steven, and Joseph (Debbie); Barbara’s children Donald (Debbie), David (Pilar) and Suzanne (Michael); as well as eighteen grandchildren, and eight great- grandchildren.
Gifts in Dr. Maklanksy’s memory can be made to support scholarships at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
