Stephen Nelson, MD - Introduction
Hello. I’m Doctor Stephen Nelson. I specialize in Hip and Knee Replacement here at Connecticut Orthopaedics. In specializing in hip and knee replacement, they are such successful procedures that we can take patients who previously were unable to do the activities that they enjoyed and I get to see them back in clinic hearing that they are not only walking, but dancing, hiking, playing with their grandchildren and they’ve completely forgotten about their hip and knee. I specialize in direct anterior approach total hip surgery. It’s a unique type of surgical approach which allows patients to really speed up their post-operative recovery. And it does this because we’re able split the muscles instead of actually cutting them. I also do a fair bit of robotic knee surgery – when it’s necessary. It’s a different type of technology that allows us to collect more clinical data points to allow better clinical outcomes.
