Hip Conditions

Hip Specialist In The Greater Fairfield & Shelton Areas

After completing my hip and knee reconstruction fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery in 1993, I began performing hip replacements here in CT. This has enabled patients to have their hip surgery close to home and thus don’t need to travel to a large orthopedic center miles away for their care. I use the posterior approach and have notice an extremely low rate of dislocation over the last 25 years. I have not seen the need to switch to the anterior approach when performing total hip replacements which can have higher complication rates. I have also been doing hip resurfacing since approved by the FDA in 2007. This procedure allows young active patients to return to high level athletics and activities that may not be recommended after standard total hip replacement.
