Dr. Christen Russo Published in AAOS Now

April 13, 2018

Columbia Orthopedics pediatric orthopedic surgeon Christen M. Russo, MD was published in AAOS Now for her article “The Importance of Mentorship: Inspiration and Support.” The article recommends ways female orthopedic surgeons can be mentors to female orthopedic residents and fellows, enhancing their orthopedic career and act as role models. Dr. Russo believes that female mentorship will have a positive impact in the orthopedic community:

“A female mentor is not a ticket to success in orthopaedic surgery. She cannot guarantee a spot in the match or an interview at her institution. She is, however, an invaluable resource, an inspiration, a level head when applying to residency or fellowship, a personal and professional support when touchy subjects like family and salary arise. She can be someone to remind her mentees what they should already know—that they can and will succeed in orthopedic surgery.”
