DANBURY, Conn. -- Four Danbury Orthopedics specialists -- Dr. Michael Brand, Dr. Joseph DiGiovanni, Dr. Ross Henshaw and Dr. John Lunt -- have been recognized by Connecticut Magazine as leading surgeons in the field of orthopedics for 2016.
Every year, Connecticut Magazine asks doctors from across the state to tell them who they would recommend to a loved one in need of a physician. Doctors receiving the most recommendations by their peers have earned a Top Doc honor in the latest issue of the magazine. Trained at the country’s top medical institutions, these surgeons offer the region state-of-the-art care using the latest techniques and methodologies.
The physicians, and their credentials, are as follows:
Brand is a Harvard University trained sports medicine specialist with expertise in treating knee and shoulder problems. He helped bring arthroscopic techniques to the region. He has experience in arthroscopic shoulder surgery and treating the full spectrum of knee issues.
DiGiovanni specializes in problems of the upper extremities. Trained at Mount Sinai Hospital and Hospital for Joint Diseases/NYU, he treats nerve compressions, osteoarthritis in the hand, trigger finger, volar plate injuries (jammed fingers) as well as wrist injuries and fractures. He also treats elbow problems including cubital tunnel syndrome and performs total elbow replacements.
Henshaw graduated from Johns Hopkins University and Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, followed by a sports medicine and shoulder surgery fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery. He treats advanced arthroscopic techniques to treat shoulder, hip and knee injuries through incisions no wider than a fingernail.
Lunt, a specialist in surgery of the upper extremities, trained at St. Lukes/Roosevelt Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center. His fellowship was in hand surgery at Columbia Presbyterian. He was a medical co-director at the Hand Center of Western Connecticut.
