Yen Shipley
STRIKING DOWN STEREOTYPES Nancy Yen Shipley, MD, a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who is among the minority of women in her specialty, was voted the 2020-2021 Top Orthopedic Surgeon by Portland Monthly.

Nancy Yen Shipley, MD, knows a thing or two about standing out. As a proud member of the 6% — the percentage of female orthopedic surgeons in the U.S. — she has never had the luxury of maintaining the status quo or doing the bare minimum. Working in a male-dominated field required Dr. Yen Shipley to stand out and shine, but she refused to do it at the expense of her personal life — and she’s found both remarkable professional and personal success in the process. As a practicing orthopod, Dr. Yen Shipley was voted the 2020-2021 Top Orthopaedic Surgeon by Portland Monthly, the city where she works as a partner at a thriving orthopedic clinic and serves as the team physician for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team, Multnomah University and the Portland Interscholastic League. She has also worked with SpeakUp Ortho, a platform for surgeons who have experienced bullying, harassment or bias to make their voices heard. “It’s about creating an initiative that will someday blossom into something that will lead to real systemic change and keep individuals with a long track record of bullying from holding leadership roles,” she says of the new and rapidly growing organization.
