Hi – I’m Doctor Tedd Weisman. I’m an Orthopaedic Hand Surgeon here at Connecticut Orthopaedics. I do have a philosophy about how I interact with patients, but I actually don’t call it a philosophy. Because, I think that’s too theoretical. I call it a modus operandi or an M.O. It’s a way of thinking about how a patient feels when they come to the office. And I find that if I put myself in their shoes and I actually listen to what they say. I mean listen – for one maybe even two minutes, which seems like an eternity to most of us physicians. Many times the patients will tell you what hurts. They’ll give you the diagnosis. All we have to do is listen. Patients very often ask, am I having major surgery as we discuss and plan for surgery. What I tell them is, what one of my mentors told me and I live by this philosophy, that the surgery should be major for me and minor for you.

" Dr. Weisman exceeded my expectations at my appointment for a second opinion. He was able to properly diagnose the cause of the pins and needles in my arm along with neck and elbow pain. The previous specialist did not take the time to analyze the results of a nerve conduction test, thereby missing key points. This was not the case with Dr. Weisman. I wish I could've started treating with him immediately following my injury at work. I probably would be well on my way to recovery by now. "

Full Biography

Dr. Tedd Weisman is a physician-partner at Connecticut Orthopaedics. He has been a Board-Certified orthopaedic fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons since 1992, and continues his 10-year interval Maintenance of Certification with the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He has additional subspecialty fellowship training in Hand Surgery. He held the position of Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Milford Hospital from 2005-2019, and served a successful two-year term as President of the Milford Hospital Medical Staff from 2008-2010.

He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and his Medical Degree from New York Medical College. Dr. Weisman completed his General Surgery Internship and Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at St. Vincent’s Hospital & Medical Center in New York City. He also served as Chief Resident in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at St. Vincent’s Hospital. Dr. Weisman then completed a Hand & Microvascular Surgery Fellowship at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York. At Stony Brook, Dr. Weisman was mentored by Dr. Lawrence Hurst. (Dr. Hurst had formulated and brought to market Xiaflex, a medication used worldwide that allows doctors to treat Dupuytren’s Disease of the hand with one injection rather than surgery. Dr. Weisman was one of the first orthopedic surgeons in the northeast to treat patients with Xiaflex.)

After his training, and prior to moving to Connecticut, Dr. Weisman resided in New York, where he served as Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at New York Medical College, and Chief of Hand Surgery at St. Agnes Hospital in White Plains, New York. He was founder and managing director of OrthopedicHealth, LLC from 2003 through its successful merger with Connecticut Orthopaedics in 2013.
