Four large, well-known practices are uniting under the new name: OrthoConnecticut. Coastal Orthopedics, Danbury Orthopedics, New Milford Orthopedics and Connecticut Pain Care have merged their practices and expertise to provide improved patient-centered care for the full range of musculoskeletal issues. The new group has the strength of thirty-one Board-certified orthopedic and pain management specialists in nine office locations in Connecticut.
The practices that form OrthoConnecticut are each highly reputable, independent physician groups, and they have collectively cared for residents in our region for more than 90 years. By joining forces, they are able to enhance delivery of the highest quality, comprehensive musculoskeletal care through a range of integrated services. Services are offered at multiple convenient office locations including Danbury, Darien, New Canaan, New Milford, Norwalk, Ridgefield, Sharon, Southbury and Westport.
OrthoConnecticut is also expanding its pain management services to include 4 fellowship-trained, Board-certified pain management specialists, who provide the latest treatments to alleviate and control chronic pain. The physician team uses advanced interventional pain therapies and regenerative medicine techniques to repair damaged or injured structures, and help restore patient function. The pain management specialists see patients in Danbury, New Canaan, and Norwalk.
In addition, OrthoCare Express, the practice’s walk-in orthopedic urgent care service for the treatment of acute orthopedic injuries, now offers four convenient locations at their offices in Danbury, Norwalk, Darien and Westport. OrthoConnecticut provides on-site physical therapy and hand therapy in Danbury, Norwalk and Westport.
“OrthoConnecticut brings together the same local specialists that our patients have come to know and trust,” says Dr. Michael Brand, co-president of OrthoConnecticut. “This new alliance allows us to provide the most advanced care in a more individualized and efficient fashion, offering a broad array of services and locations. Our name has changed but our patients can expect the same type of high quality individualized service that they have received for years,” he added. Patients can still reach their physicians using the same contact numbers from the prior practices.
“Our new office in the Berkshire Corporate Park in Danbury is really a musculoskeletal center with onsite Orthopedic offices, radiological services, physical and occupational therapy as well as pain management and regenerative medicine. This allows for immediate collaboration with our physicians, which allows us to better serve our patients. When patients come see us, they are not just getting the expertise of the one physician they came to see, but all of our musculoskeletal providers,” said Dr. Joseph DiGiovanni, a hand specialist at Danbury Orthopedics (now a part of OrthoConnecticut).
The new 40,000-square-foot building, located in the Berkshire Corporate Park, will merge Danbury Orthopedics’ three former locations into a single centralized facility. By consolidating all of their physicians and staff into one state-of-the-art location, Danbury Orthopedics can diagnose and treat the complete range of musculoskeletal issues for all ages in one easily accessible location with minimal wait time and a more efficient patient experience.
The unification will bring together the top musculoskeletal experts in the area and will help to meet the areas future needs for orthopedic, spinal and sports medicine care in this ever-changing healthcare landscape. As a combined entity, OrthoConnecticut can better serve its patient population through partnerships with other healthcare providers and expanded relationships with insurance companies. The end result will be cost-effective and convenient complete musculoskeletal care for the community.
