Best knee and shoulder surgeon in the Hartford, CT area!!!

It isn't often that a surgeon has the perfect combination of exceptional skill, terrific bedside manner, ability to educate you without pontificating, unearths every stone (if necessary to help you), and, as an amazing bonus, has a fabulous sense of humor, too!!! Dr. Lena does all of this without an ounce of arrogance. He listens to your needs, gives you options and lets you be part of the decision making as he knows that how he goes about fixing you has to work for your life. He is truly one in a million!
