Professional statement

****PLEASE NOTE: DR. MAZZARA DOES NOT PARTICIPATE WITH MEDICAID**** ****Dr. Mazzara specializes in conditions of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and knee only.************************************************ I completed my orthopedic surgery training in New York at St. Luke’s\Roosevelt Hospital Center, a teaching hospital affiliated with Columbia University. I have been in practice in Manchester since 1991. I am currently on the active staff of ECHN, Manchester Memorial Hospital, The Connecticut Joint Replacement Institute(CJRI) at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center and Hartford Hospital. I am a board certified and, in 2014, was recertified in adult reconstructive orthopedic surgery. From 2007 to 2013, I was listed in Connecticut Magazines Top Docs issue as one of Connecticut’s best orthopedic surgeons for shoulders and knees. In fact, I was the only ECHN orthopedic surgeon to receive this recognition. In 24 years, I have treated many patients and performed thousands of surgeries and I bring that vast experience and skill to each and every patient evaluation and surgical procedure. My area of special interest includes traumatic and degenerative conditions of the shoulder and knee. I perform arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery as well as shoulder and knee replacements.

Dr. Mazzara is an extremely talented specialist, which I knew before seeing him from a recommendation. Maybe my symptoms were “text book”, I don’t know, but he spent the time to evaluate my situation, diagnose my condition and recommend treatmentoptions. I left the office knowing my next course of action and truly felt my time was both valued and well-spent.
