DR. PAUL MEGIBOW, 51, DIES; WAS LEADER IN MEDICAL CIRCLES: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice
Record, The (Hackensack, NJ) - November 4, 1995
Paul R. Megibow, the colorful and outspoken orthopedic surgeon who led the Bergen County Medical Society and the medical staff of Hackensack University Medical Center, died suddenly Thursday. He was 51.

Dr. Megibow was alone in his Hackensack office doing paperwork late Thursday when he apparently suffered a massive heart attack, officials of the hospital and medical society said. Hackensack police broke into the office at the request of his wife, who became concerned when he did not come home and she could not reach him.

The Tenafly resident had recently completed a yearlong term as chairman of the hospital's medical board, which oversees the medical staff, and a yearlong term as president of the 1,200-member county medical society. He was chief of orthopedic surgery at the medical center and an attending surgeon at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center and Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck.

Generous with his time and talent, Dr. Megibow had donated his surgical services over the years to children brought to New Jersey by the Heal the Children Foundation and to victims of the war in Bosnia.

"It gives me a warm feeling to help kids who have a lot of problems and not as many benefits as we have in this country," he said after surgery last year to correct the severe foot deformities of a 5-year-old boy from the Dominican Republic. "I feel the amount of time I devote to these children is a small price to pay for helping the children feel better."

He was also a nearly legendary letter writer, detailing his views about health-care reform, Medicare reimbursement, malpractice suits, physician self-referral, war in the former Yugoslavia, American policy in the Persian Gulf, and other subjects in a wide-ranging correspondence.
In recent years, however, his main subject had been managed-care and its growth in New Jersey. He warned of the "very real threat" that the expanded use of health-maintenance organizations would lead to "rationing of expensive medical care."

"Paul was outspoken, tough, and defiant all the characteristics of a leader who generated controversy, yet who remained dedicated to the integrity of his profession," said Dr. Edwin M. Trayner, who succeeded him in June as president of the medical society.

Earlier this year, Dr. Megibow was featured in a newspaper advertisement for a managed-care company. It reprinted a letter from him praising the company for its speedy approval of his unorthodox handling of an emergency situation. He felt that the company put medical care before cost, and he wanted to reinforce that approach, he said.

The letter, which he signed as president of the medical society, generated so much controversy among physicians that he resigned his official titles and committee positions with the society, remaining simply a regular member.

"I feel badly that they were upset," he said in an interview last week. "We have so many problems in medicine, we shouldn't argue among ourselves."

Dr. Megibow is survived by his wife, Barbara; their children, Craig and Randi; and his mother, Edythe. Memorial services will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Gutterman-Musicant Funeral Home in Hackensack.
