Meet Karen – Karen M. Sutton, M.D. Sports Medicine Surgeon
Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
Columbia Maryland, Riverside CT, 1 year
Child(ren) and Age(s)?
3 boys and 1 girl
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
I always intend to start meditating and downloaded 5 apps, but really dancing to hip hop music is my zen time.
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
My mother and husband have been rock solid with our four children. My mother brings her years of wisdom as well as funny moments when raising us. My husband (and I am as well!) is
reliving his sports glory days, playing soccer, football, basketball, baseball and a new sport to
him, lacrosse, with all of our children.
Favorite things to do with your kids?
We enjoy exploring the trails at Tod’s Point, Stand Up Paddle, biking around Riverside and being involved in all the local sports programs.
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
I am an orthopaedic surgeon in sports medicine at Hospital for Special Surgery and an Associate Professor at Weill Cornell Medical College. I am the Team Physician for US
Lacrosse and consult with US Ski & Snowboard.
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
Our neighbors and school communities have been THE most welcoming people and have made the transition from Fairfield to Riverside seamless—block parties, holiday festivities, and play
dates. It takes a village to raise 4 children and I could not be happier with our “village”!
