Introducing JBJS Associate Editor Lauren Tatman, MD

JBJS is pleased to welcome F. Alan Barber, Nicholas Giori, Terence E. McIff, Lauren Tatman, and Lee Zuckerman as new Associate Editors to the Editorial Board of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.  

JBJS Associate Editors serve 3-year terms for the Journal and have a history of providing exemplary reviews. They are instrumental in adjudicating manuscripts with disparate reviews at virtual Editor Workshops and play a vital role in ensuring the quality of JBJS peer review.  

This post is the second in a month-long series profiling the 2023-2026 JBJS Associate Editors.

How many years have you been in practice?


How and when did you first get involved with JBJS?

I started reviewing for JBJS about five years ago when I was completing residency.

What is your favorite tip or tool for maintaining a healthy work/life balance?

Include goals for your personal life and items outside of work that are important to you in your 5- and 10-year plans. Reassess your progress frequently and adjust how you’re spending your time accordingly!

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

The OTA supported my attendance at the AAOS/OREF/ORS Clinician Scholar Career Development Program in 2019. This was an opportunity that highlighted the significance of high quality, meaningful research in orthopaedic surgery from faculty that have had a major impact on our field.

Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?

I recently picked up one of my favorite novels to re-read: The Alchemist.
