OrthoConnecticut now offers Cast21 lightweight, waterproof, and comfortable lattice mesh-like arm casting in fun colors designed for an active lifestyle. This upgraded cast alternative is now available to our patients in the Danbury, Darien, Norwalk, Ridgefield, Southbury, and Westport offices.

The many benefits of this innovative cast include no longer having to deal with a cast that is itchy, smelly, or uncomfortable, and does not need to be cut off with a saw (unlike traditional casting). As if being waterproof wasn’t enough of an advantage the fact that physicians no longer need a saw is a big plus for children (and adults) who can be apprehensive of the saw.

What's more is that Cast21 can be applied in as short a time as 3-minutes. It molds quickly and cures fast so our patients have a shorter, easier visit. The waterproof and breathable nature of the lattice structure also helps prevent infections and skin complications.

We're pleased that OrthoConnecticut patients can heal with a more comfortable option and still maintain an active lifestyle. No more needing to cover your cast with a plastic bag to bathe or sitting out summer pool parties. Cast 21 is a welcome addition to improving our patients everyday life while recovering comfortably.

Excerpt as seen in Green Card Stories

Randy Sealey

Randy Sealey breezed through the college applications for the nation’s top universities. He listed his student awards and honors. He wrote an essay about his dreams of becoming the first person in his family to attend college, and of becoming a doctor. But on each application, there was one question he left blank: Are you a citizen of the United States?

He was sure his grandparents were working out his immigration status. It seemed like just a technical matter. He felt as American as his beloved New York Yankees.

After longtime Litchfield podiatrist Dr. Gary Shields retired last year, local residents who visited his office on Bantam Road had to find someone new to look after their feet.

Turns out they didn’t have to go far. Shields’ patients have all been referred to OrthoConnecticut’s Dr. Thomas Guglielmo, located next door at 338 Bantam Road.

“We’re caring for many of Dr. Shields’ patients,” said Dr. Guglielmo, who has been seeing Shields’ patients in Litchfield since last July. “Our patients are now mentioning us to friends, co-workers and family, so word of mouth has helped residents find the care they need locally.”

Dr. Guglielmo is available to see patients in the Litchfield office on Tuesdays. He treats patients of all ages, from infants to senior citizens, and specializes in surgical and non-surgical management of conditions affecting the foot and ankle.
