Orthopaedic Care by Women for Women

When it comes to seeking medical treatment, the choice of a healthcare provider is a crucial decision. Traditionally, there have been very few women who specialize in orthopaedic surgery. That is why it is noteworthy that among our group of world-class physicians, we have five that happen to be female. If you are a patient who feels more comfortable being treated by a woman, we have more at Connecticut Orthopaedics than at any other practice in the State of Connecticut. These excellent physicians understand your desire to resume your active lifestyle

It’s no secret that males and females are biologically different, which means that orthopedic care needs to be tailored for the individual’s needs.  Our team of orthopaedic surgeons are keenly aware of these differences and can understand the risks and prevalence of injury for women. From diagnosis to rehab, we care for the entire woman and personalize your treatment so you can start feeling like yourself again.

Top 3 Orthopaedic conditions women are at a greater risk for: 

  1. Osteoarthritis: bones rub together when cartilage in your joints breaks down, causing pain and inflammation
  2. Osteoporosis: loss in bone mass that can increase fracture risk
  3. Knee injuries: general knee pain, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, and knee sprains
