Dr. Matthew Russell is an otolaryngology hospitalist who cares for patients needing head and neck surgery while in the hospital. When named an otolaryngology hospitalist at UCSF in July 2011, he was one of a few, and possibly the first, head and neck surgeon in the country to serve in this role, coordinating the head and neck surgical needs of hospital patients, providing inpatient consultations and assisting other specialists with head and neck problems such as complex airway issues. He also is involved in initiatives on quality improvement, patient safety and systems-based practices.
Russell earned a medical degree at Boston University School of Medicine and completed an internship in General Surgery and a five-year surgical residency in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, both at UCSF.
