Conditions & Treatments
Dr. Greene: It has been 6 weeks since you mended my fractured left clavicle and I continue to make progress in my recovery. I estimate that my range of motion in the shoulder is close to 90% and I am beginning to cautiously build strength in the muscles affected by my injury. I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving, and this year I am especially grateful for having such a great orthopedist as you. – RG (Shoulder)
Doctors, Nurses, Therapists and support staff: This is a big THANK YOU for all the expert and attentive care you extended towards my recovery from a broken pelvis and elbow after a spill on black ice in December ’09. Let everyone know, there is Zumba after broken bones heal. I received excellent care at Greenwich Hospital, with elbow surgery by Dr. Geene (yay for titanium). Each of you as a part of this “total team” took me from being in excruciating pain and bedridden to no pain and full function and then some! – LA (Hip/Elbow)
