Member News

We are sorry to share with you the passing of Dr. Christopher Linstrom who died unexpectedly on February 17, 2016. Dr. Linstrom was a Triological Society Fellow, elected in 2002. He received an Honorable Mention for his thesis, “Objective Facial Motion Analysis in Patients with Facial Nerve Dysfunction”.

On behalf of the Triological Society Council and members, we extend sympathy to his family and colleagues. A few colleagues from New York Otology shared their sentiments:

I am so shocked and saddened to hear this news. When I relocated to NY Chris was so kind in welcoming me to the New York area and went out of his way to make me feel comfortable. I have learned much from him over the past seven years and will miss his wealth of medical and life knowledge and his gentle ways. It is a great loss to our field and all of those whose lives he touched.

Chris's kind nature, warmth and earnest personality as well as his contributions to our field will live on in the hearts and minds of all that were fortunate to know him.

Chris was a warm and insightful person and gifted surgeon. I would call him to discuss patients and he always had great advice and was very encouraging. He will be sorely missed for his good nature and sharp mind. The otolaryngologic community was blessed by his presence and good humor.

He was my mentor, a role model of human kindness, spiritual guide, forever the optimist with a beautiful and pure soul.

A full obituary, published in the New York Times is available here.
