This week we're joined by Sean Thompson, MD. Dr. Thompson is a private orthopedic surgeon in the New York metropolitan area. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at SUNY Stony Brook and an arthroplasty fellowship at NYU. He began his career in academics but transitioned to a solo practice years later. We discuss this transition and what it has meant for both his family and professional life. We also discuss his experiences through the pandemic, how he manages to run and maintain a successful solo practice in a major metropolitan area, and how he maintains a strong work-life balance.
