DID YOU KNOW …

  • The skin on the palm side of our hand is very unique.
  • It grows no hair.  
  • It does not have the ability to tan.
  • It is tough and durable, but also sensitive enough to discriminate between a quarter and a nickel in your pocket.
  • The skin is anchored to the bone through an intermediate layer of fascia, which prevents the skin from sliding around like a rubber glove.
  • Fingerprints provide friction to allow us to grasp and hold onto objects.

These fun facts are just the tip of the iceberg. The OrthoConnecticut team of fellowship-trained, board-certified hand and wrist surgeons know the ins and outs of palms, fingers, wrists….you name it.

So whether you need schooling on little known facts about your hand or skilled surgical proficiency, come to the experts. The Hand Center at OrthoConnecticut is ready to care for you.

The term spondylolisthesis might even be a mouthful for OrthoConnecticut Spine Surgeon Justin Paul M.D., Ph.D., however, performing surgery to correct it is something he is quite skilled at.

Watch Dr. Paul’s informative video to learn more about lateral spine surgery. Dr. Paul speaks about the lateral surgical approach which is a minimally invasive procedure performed with an incision through the side of the body to access the spine, instead of through the back. This approach provides greater control making it easier to correct the bone “slippage” that is causing the back pain.
