Orthopedic surgeon Kristy Weber, MD, was honored by the Academic Orthopaedic Consortium.

Dr. Weber is a leader in orthopedic surgery, a male-dominated field, according to a March 23 news release.

"While my gender does not define me, I know that reducing barriers and embracing gender, ethnic and racial diversity in our field only stands to better our culture and better serve patients," she said.

She was the first female president of American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons in 2019 and chief of orthopedic oncology at Philadelphia-based University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. She's also director of the sarcoma program at Philadelphia-based Penn Medicine Abramson Cancer Center.
