FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Oct. 8, 2013
Joining CD Practice Associates from Hamp Ortho are 39 employees, including four orthopedic surgeons, two physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians (physiatrists), two physical therapists, and an occupational hand therapist. (A list of the physicians and clinical staff appears below.)
As the oldest provider of orthopedic care in Hampshire County, Hamp Ortho has provided treatment of musculo-skeletal problems – including management of spine disorders, primary and complex joint reconstruction, trauma, sports medicine, hand and arthritis care, and pain management – since 1952.
The physicians of Hampshire Orthopedics are also on the consulting staff at the student health service department of the University of Massachusetts and have served as the orthopedic team physicians for many years.
Benefits for Patients
“One of the first priorities now that Hamp Ortho and CDPA are joined is to expand access and services to better meet the needs of patients who need orthopedic and rehabilitative care,” said Frank Dingler, Executive Director, CDPA.
Jonathan Fallon, DO, an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician, added that “becoming part of CDPA will immediately allow the doctors at Hampshire Orthopedics and Sports Medicine to more effectively coordinate patient care and better communicate with primary care providers.”
Same Office Locations and Phone Numbers
Service to patients will continue uninterrupted at the current Hamp Ortho locations at 4 West St., West Hatfield; 65 Springfield Rd, Westfield; 35 Turkey Hill Rd, Belchertown; UMass Amherst Clinic, Amherst; and 33 Riddell St., Greenfield.
