Dr. Carlson, the Active Orthopedics team, and all the wonderful staff at Naugatuck Valley Surgical Center took great care of my needs! I appreciate their expertise, friendliness and transparent communication. :) I just had a SLAP (type 2) repair + bicep tenodesis. I am beyond thankful that I had been referred to Dr. Carlson and his team.

I saw Dr. Kaplan for another follow-up appointment on 6/15/2021. I had unilateral (partial) knee replacements on both knees. It has been 9 years since my left knee was repaired, and 6 years since the right knee was done. Following x-rays and a physical exam, Dr. Kaplan explained that the prosthetic parts are still in the correct position, and that both knees are doing extremely well. I agree 100%. I have no pain, or limitation of movement. I can walk, ride a bike, play pickleball, swim and hike strenuous trails without any trouble at all. The best news Dr. Kaplan told me was that he now has patients who had this surgery done over 20 years ago, and are still going strong, and that I may never have to have a total knee replacement! I highly recommend partial knee replacement for those who qualify, and I also highly recommend Dr. Kaplan as an excellent surgeon, and all around nice guy.

Being on the younger side and having bad knees - I took a chance with a knee replacement and it was the best choice I made. I was able to get back to my activities with no pain and live like I was 43 and not 86! Dr. Kaplan was wonderful through the whole process. Definitely worth it and life changing!

Dr. Kaplan has done replacement on both my knees. The right one being done on August 10th. I can not say enough about the care I was given. I’m walking without assistance and no swaying. My range of motion is great and I’m easing back to my exercises. I watch my 3 year old granddaughter twice a week and no pain at all. Thank you Dr. Kaplan and staff.

Dr Kaplan is the best! I had a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago and have had a wonderful recovery. I was driving after 2 weeks and feeling great. I had no pain after the replacement surgery. Physical therapy is going very well. I’m back at work standing 8 hours a day with no pain. Can’t wait to get my left knee replacement in December. Dr Kaplan, Marcy and all the staff are wonderful. Dr Kaplan and Marcy took extra time to put me at ease before my surgery and answer all my questions. You will be very happy with Dr Kaplan!

After surgery when I went home, I didn't need any help and was driving within 2 weeks and doing stairs in 3! Never needed pain meds! I'm looking forward to getting back to skiing and working on my horse farm! Thank you Dr. Kaplan.

Dr. Carlson did an excellent job with the carpel tunnel surgery on both of my wrists. He had fixed a problem with my right wrist caused by a poor surgery conducted by a doctor in the Torrington area. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

I had a total knee replacement on 7/20/20. I've had 2 hip replacements in the past 5 years. I was told knee surgery was more painful than hip surgery. I was pleasantly surprised. The total knee surgery had pain for 48 hours and then just tight discomfort. My knee was collasped and in poor condition. Dr. Kaplan did wonders. I can even jog short distances. never thought! I still continue rehab to gain more flexibility and strength. So glad I had the surgery.

I feel Dr. Kaplan is kind understanding and professional. He is excellent at explaining things and I will definitely be back next year for my other knee!
