Orthopedic surgeons perform robot-assisted joint replacements and spine surgeries. These procedures mean surgeons may operate with higher levels of precision with techniques designed to reduce risk of complication. Patients may benefit from less pain, quicker recoveries and shorter hospital stays.
A smooth care journey:
When you schedule an orthopedic surgery, a dedicated patient navigator assists with preparation and throughout recovery. This navigator helps you experience smooth transitions throughout your care.
Excellent trauma care:
Danbury Hospital, Norwalk Hospital and Vassar Brothers Medical Center are all Level II Trauma Centers. We have a 24/7 orthopedic traumatologist to care for patients with urgent orthopedic injuries. If you experience a complicated fracture, this specialist offers you expertise in a location close to home.
We use an evidence-based protocol called Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) to ensure you experience the best possible outcome after surgery. ERAS techniques help you get out of the hospital and back to your usual activities as quickly as possible.
