Connecticut Orthopaedics continues its longtime support of Quinnipiac University Athletics! We congratulate the winter sports teams on their strong regular seasons thus far, and wish them the very best of luck in their upcoming postseason tournaments. Go Bobcats!
Connecticut Orthopaedics, in partnership with developer Gary Richetelli, recently broke ground on Racebrook Medical Center at 235 Boston Post Road in Orange.
The new state-of-the-art facility is set to open in Fall 2023 and will offer patients a full suite of orthopaedic services, including urgent care, imaging, and physical therapy.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our commitment to our patients in Orange and the surrounding communities with a larger, more comprehensive facility,” said Susan Bader, Connecticut Orthopaedics Chief Executive Officer. “This will allow us to provide care to even more patients and get them back to the activities they enjoy.”
The practice will be staffed by over 15 board-certified orthopaedic surgeons with specialties ranging from sports medicine, foot and ankle, hand and upper extremity, hip, knee, shoulder, spine, and joint replacement.
Connecticut Orthopaedics’ two existing Orange locations will transition to the new facility when it opens later this year. Hartford Healthcare will also be a co-tenant in the medical center building.
Congratulations and welcome home to Dr. Michael Redler, who recently completed his eight medical mission to Honduras.
The medical mission was organized by One World Surgery, a nonprofit whose goal is to provide world-class surgical care to underserved communities globally.
During his mission, Dr. Redler completed 15 surgeries, including this patient, a male who received an ACL reconstruction and meniscal repair.
“Our hearts are filled with pride and our spirits have been lifted immensely,” said Dr. Redler. “The access to surgery for underserved countries may well be among the best efforts to pay it forward in a way that can have major impact on the patient, the family, and their economic society as a whole.”
Connecticut Orthopaedics spine surgeon Dr. Glenn Russo teamed up with Hartford Healthcare radiation oncologists to establish a multi-disciplinary model to deliver better care for spine tumor patients.
While performing a complex tumor reconstruction, Dr. Russo utilized a cutting-edge carbon fiber system, which helps to optimize tumor radiation and minimize the risk of tumor recurrence.
This coordinated and innovative approach was identified by Connecticut Orthopaedic physicians Dr. Gerard Girasole and Dr. Russo, and is part of our continued effort to provide the latest and most effective care for every patient in our community!
