    Resignation points to rift in surgical community

    Dr. Linda Brodsky, a pediatric otolaryngologist based in Buffalo, N.Y., was part of a prominent, decade-long gender discrimination lawsuit and is an advocate for female surgeons. While she admits something about the piece didn’t make sense upon first reading it, she wasn’t offended. “I could see that he was trying to be clever,” she says, citing the Valentine’s Day reference. “He tried to take folklore and link it to the science.

    Toddlers and Tiaras: Is it Just Another Form of Child Abuse?

    I am guilty! Yes, in my office sometimes I forget myself when I meet a new female patient, almost always a child.
