Guilford, CT native, Dr. Glenn S. Russo has joined Connecticut Orthopaedics as a spine, back and neck specialist.

“Dr. Russo helps us bring that little extra bit of community focus to our practice,” notes Glenn Elia, CEO of COS. “Like many of our doctors, he grew up and went to school in the area. Therefore, he will be able to quickly connect with our patients and in short order, become a trusted and valued orthopaedic provider in our growing practice.”

Dr. Russo graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and completed a residency at the Yale University School of Medicine. Prior to that, he received a Master’s Degree in Medical Science from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Stonehill College in Easton, MA.

Dr. Russo completed his fellowship in Spinal Surgery at the renowned Rothman Institute in Philadelphia, PA. There, he also served as a Clinical Instructor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University.

He will be seeing patients in five of our local offices (Branford, Hamden, Milford, Shelton and Wallingford) and will also serve as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery at the Frank H. Netter School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT.
