DR. MICHAEL BRAND specializes in treating knee and shoulder problems. He trained at the Harvard University Combined Orthopedic Program in Boston and completed his fellowship in San Diego. He performs state-of-the-art, minimally invasive, arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgery, and reconstructive knee surgery including total and partial knee replacements. He has extensive experience in treating the knee and its full spectrum of issues from torn menisci to complex reconstructive surgeries. “It’s critical to understand the remarkable complexities of knee mechanics in order to properly assess, diagnose and deliver superior treatment to patients.”

DR. JOSEPH DIGIOVANNI treats problems of the upper extremities. He trained at Mount Sinai Hospital and NYU Langone Hospital for Joint Diseases. He treats complex hand issues including nerve compressions (carpal tunnel syndrome), osteoarthritis in the hand, trigger fingers, volar plate injuries (jammed fingers), and wrist injuries and fractures. He also treats elbow problems including cubital tunnel syndrome and performs total elbow replacements. Many of his patients are athletes, musicians, and workers with hand injuries.

DR. ROSS HENSHAW graduated from Johns Hopkins University and Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. He did a fellowship in sports medicine and shoulder surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery where he learned advanced arthroscopic techniques to treat shoulder, knee, and hip injuries through incisions no wider than a fingernail. He uses a tiny camera for better visualization of the injury and micro tools to repair tissues with minimal trauma. At Columbia, he learned innovative shoulder replacement surgery using techniques that spare bone tissue and foster easier recovery. An athlete himself, he sympathizes with his patients and tries to get them back to their sport as soon as possible.

DR. JOHN LUNT specializes in surgery of the upper extremities, focusing on minimally invasive endoscopic and arthroscopic techniques. He trained at St. Luke’s/Roosevelt Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center and completed a fellowship in hand surgery at Columbia Presbyterian. As medical co-director at the Hand Center of Western Connecticut, he earned a reputation as the go-to doctor for problems others cannot identify. With superior diagnostic tools, he excels at recognizing nerve compression syndromes and problems that are common but hard to detect.
