Danbury Hospital proudly announces that it has been designated an Aetna Institute of Quality® Orthopedic Care Facility for total joint replacement surgery.

Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of health care services available to its members to help them make informed decisions about their health care needs. In line with this goal, Aetna recognizes hospitals and facilities in its network that offer specialized clinical services for certain health conditions. Danbury Hospital was selected for consistently delivering evidence-based, safe care.

According to Dr. Daniel Fish, Chief, Section of Orthopedic Surgery at Danbury Hospital, musculoskeletal disease affects 1 in 4 Americans. “The Center for Advanced Orthopedic and Spine Care at Danbury Hospital is devoted to helping our patients decrease the pain and functional limitations that come with injury or illness of the bones, joints, and muscles,” said Dr. Fish. “Our orthopedic physicians are committed to providing expert diagnostic evaluation, medical treatment, and surgical procedures for a variety of musculoskeletal, orthopedic, and spinal conditions,” added Dr. Fish.
