Sheryl Handler-Matasar, MD

Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon; Director, Orthopedic Surgery & Clubfoot Clinic, Mahoning Valley

Medical Service / Department / Program:

Of all the medical specialties, orthopedic surgery is arguably the most physically demanding. Pushing bones back into place requires brute force, while long surgery sessions demand stamina – which may explain why orthopedics is one of the few medical specialties still male-dominated.

Today only 4% of board-certified orthopedic surgeons are women. Dr. Sheryl Handler at Akron Children’s Hospital is among that select group.
