Eric Padegimas, MD - Introduction
I’m Doctor Eric Padegimas. I’m a Shoulder and Elbow Specialist here at Connecticut Orthopaedics. With regards to treatments that I focus on the most, things like shoulder replacement, elbow replacement, and on complex arthroscopic procedures such as rotator cuff repair, failed rotator cuff repair that needs to be redone a second time. But, in addition to all that, I also focus on Sports Medicine and getting athletes back on the field. So, my training is a little bit different than most people that do shoulder and elbow surgery. I exclusively operate on the shoulder and the elbow. All of my training was explicitly done on the upper extremity. So, that’s all I focus on and I think that that’s important. It gets you a more reproducible result when you only focus on kind of one part of the body.
