We couldn’t be happier.

I went to several different doctors in Fairfield County before finding Dr. Robert Brady.

I feel SO lucky to have found him and am grateful he performed my recent spinal fusion. I know I was in the best of hands with my surgery. He is professional, compassionate, extremely skilled and smart. Dr Brady really communicates well so I understood my condition, my options, my surgery and my recovery needs. His medical assistant, PA and the rest of the staff at this office are always very kind and accommodating.

Dr. Brady: Literally Changed My Life

After receiving an impact injury to my neck in the summer while playing basketball I went to OrthoConnecticut for an evaluation.

I had been referred to OrthoConnecticut and Dr. Brady by one of my good friends from MIT who is an orthopaedic surgeon on the West coast. In helping me review available physicians in the New York area, my friend strongly recommended the team at OrthoConnecticut and Dr. Brady based on his stellar track record and previous experience. In December, I underwent surgery to fuse two vertebrae in my neck after exhausting all other possible solutions. I found it extremely reassuring that Dr. Brady and the team at OrthoConnecticut helped me to arrive at the decision to undergo surgery by exhausting other options versus pushing surgery at the outset. My experience with OrthoConnecticut and Dr. Brady post surgery and during recovery has been exceptional. Going into surgery I was given a detailed explanation of the procedure and was able to better understand the recovery process afterwards. Dr. Brady and his team were always available to answer questions and assist with any concerns I had. With the OrthoConnecticut teams’ assistance I was able to make a full recovery and return to living life pain free and with limited long-term effects from the injury. I cannot speak more highly of the professionalism and capability of Dr. Brady and his team at OrthoConnecticut. They literally changed my life.

Dr. Frank: I Am Totally Satisfied

Last year I fell and completely tore my Rotator Cuff.

Dr. Frank reviewed my MRI results with me and explained my choices. He did not pressure me to have the surgery but set real expectations for life with and without the repair. He did the surgery and the recovery process was better than described. He is great. I have effectively 99% of pre surgical use/range of motion on my shoulder. I am totally satisfied with Dr. Frank and the staff at OrthoConnecticut!

Dr. Protomastro: Improved the Quality of My Life

For several years I suffered with pain to my shoulder and arm.

I was referred to Dr. Protomastro who performed shoulder replacement surgery. Although I was very fearful I chose to have the surgery and I am very, very happy I did so. The surgery was successful! I highly recommend OrthoConnecticut to anyone who is in need of orthopaedic surgery. The surgeons here specialize in specific areas of the body needing treatment. As far as I’m concerned Dr. Protomastro improved the quality of my life.

Dr. Markey was very kind and friendly and quickly put my seven-year-old daughter at ease when I brought her to him with a knee injury.

His expert advice and treatment resulted in her full recovery.

Dr. Brady: I Am Pain Free

I am 53 years old. I was nearly incapacitated with back pain.

Dr. Brady performed a double spinal fusion of my lumbar spine six years ago. I work full time as an emergency physician. I play lacrosse with guys 25 years younger. I coach high school wrestling and wrestle with 18 year old boys who weigh 50 lbs more than me. I am pain free thanks to Dr. Brady.

Dr. Deluca: Always very personable

I have been seeing Dr. Deluca for several years.

He diagnosed my damaged meniscus and performed knee surgery. He has attended to numerous sprains and such that come with my being a ski instructor. Always very personable and interested in how I am.

Dr. Frank: Did a great job of repairing my elbow

In December I had a bad fall and broke my elbow. I’m so thankful Dr. Frank was my surgeon.

Not only did he do a great job of repairing my elbow but he was very supportive during the entire process. Anytime I had a question or concern he would get back to me right away. He also constantly stressed how important the physical therapy was and he was right.

Dr. Lynch: Knowledgeable

Great “bedside” manner. Knowledgeable.

Uses humor to relax patient very effectively. Dr. Lynch gave me a painless knee injection.

Dr. Fletcher: Has been my “go to” guy

Brianne 200x300

Being a professional athlete and pushing my body to it’s limit everyday, injuries are bound to happen.

Understanding the importance of responding to and addressing these issues and injuries, Dr. Fletcher has been my “go to” guy. He gets me into his office, diagnoses, and performs all tests necessary to get me back on the track as soon as possible. If it wasn’t for his extreme attention to detail and thorough nature, many of my setbacks would’ve had me on the sidelines for a lot longer.

Dr. Protomastro performed complete shoulder replacements on both shoulders.

For the first time in 15 years, I am now PAIN FREE and have dramatically increased mobility. He is as good as a surgeon can be.
