2015

Happy Holidays from our Family to Yours,

In 2015, our group has advanced, with our merger into a larger group, Connecticut Orthopedic Specialists. The merger has accelerated our push towards better patient care under one roof. We have integrated OrthoNow (for urgent orthopaedic care in the after- hours and weekends). We provide digital x-ray, MRI, ultrasound, surgery, physical therapy, durable medical equipment, orthotics, and bracing. We continue to innovate, as we continue to reinvent ourselves. It has been a remarkable two years of hard work and the benefits are just scratching the surface.

In 2015, I wrote a chapter in a new book called “We had a Ball”, By Nancy H. Shapiro on how playing informal sports was good for all of us growing up. I continue to love to create, and inventions are still in the works. My second two-year term on the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons National Communications Cabinet starts in 2016. We are responsible for public service campaigns like the “decidetodrive.org” to stop texting and driving. In March of 2016, like 2015, I will be sponsoring and participating in a handicap accessible playground build with volunteers from the AAOS. I have also accepted an appointment to the National Patient Safety Committee starting in 2016. This group is responsible for promoting safety in surgery on a national level. Each year we find new ways to help patients on a bigger scale. I hope this year promises to be a fruitful one for you and your family too.

As tradition has it once again at Thanksgiving, my family gathered for a day of food, fun and a reading (singing) of my annual holiday card. This year I wrote two competing songs based on two classics from the sixties. They duked it out, and with some tweaking; the parody of the Rolling Stones 1965 hit, Satisfaction, won the family’s approval. After almost 27 years in practice, it seems fitting that “Satisfaction” is this year’s song. There is a true satisfaction in seeing old patients return each year. Some of whom I repaired their shoulder, fixed their fracture, scoped their knee, pinned their hip or sutured a ruptured tendon more than 15-20 years ago. Sometimes the satisfaction is in seeing their children, their extended family and their friends. It is an honor and a privilege to help restore patients’ lives. Each year this card is my way of thanking each of you for allowing me that opportunity.

Wishing you and your family a Happy and Healthy New Year!

(I Can’t Get No) “Healing-Action”
By Alan M Reznik MD
(To the tune of “Satisfaction” By The Rolling Stones)
I can’t get no- healing-action
I can’t get no- healing-action
‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can’t get no-, I can’t get no
When I’m castin’ on your leg
And I call in radiology
And they’re tellin’ me more and more
About some boney inflammation
Meant to inspire an operation
I can’t get no, oh no, no, no
Hey hey hey, that’s what I say

I can’t get no- healing-action
I can’t get no- healing-action
‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can’t get no, I can’t get no

When I’m castin’ your left knee
And that man comes in to tell me
How bad that break can be
But he can’t predict ‘cause he doesn’t know
How great a patient you’ll be

I can get the healing-action
I can get the healing-action
Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can get the, I can get the

When I’m checkin’ out your knee
And I’m bendin’ this and I’m flexin’ that
And I’m takin’ the last x-ray
That tells me you don’t have to come back later next week
Cause you see we’re on a winning streak

I can get some, oh yea yea yea
Hey hey hey, that’s what I say
I can get some, I can get some
I can get some healing-action
Oh- satisfaction- of healing-action!
Yes satisfaction- of healing-action!
Hey hey hey - that’s what I say!

Orthopedaville

(To be sung to the tune of “Margaritaville” by Jimmy Buffet)

Slippin’ on sponge cake,
Oh what a back ache;
Did I break both arms…oh what have I done?
Fell off the porch-swing, ankles-all-twisting
I need help
Please have an ambulance come.

Working away again in Orthopedaville,
Searchin' for my lost boxes of gauze.
Some people say I should cast both arms today,
But hang on... the X-ray is done.

We found tiny fractures,
Both arms intact, sir
All that you need is this brand new cast shoe.

And maybe an arm-sling,
Nurse; can we get two please.
How you hurt both - I haven't a clue.

Working away again in Orthopedaville,
Searchin' for my lost boxes of gauze.
Some people say I should cast both arms today,
But hang on... the X-ray is done.

I blew out my elbow
Now I will lay low,
Arms in slings, had to cruise on back home.
But there's ice in the blender,
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on.
Working away again in Orthopedaville,
Searchin' for a few lost pieces of gauze.
Some people say go to therapy today,
But hang on... it might be fun.

Yes, some people say...that I'll be limp-ing for days,
But I know...it's my own darn fault.
Yes, some people say...that I'll be limp-ing for days,
But I know...I'll heal just fine.

Sweet Bones of Mine

Sweet Bones of Mine
(Sing it to the tune of Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond)

Where it began
I can't begin to know it
But my bones will be growing strong
Strengthen the knee
And then relax my shoulders
Who'd have believed they'd come along

Bones
Healing bones
Stretching out
Mending me
Feels brand new!

Sweet bones of mine (ba ba bah)
Surgery did them so good (so good, so good, so good)
They're cal-ci-fied (ba ba bah)
Didn't think they ever would
But now I...

...look at my bike
And it don't seem so lonely
Ride it each day at half past two
Shootin' some hoops
Using my healthy shoulders
Ready to swim some laps with you

Bones
Healing bones
Stretching out
Mending me
Feels brand new!

Sweet bones of mine (ba ba bah)
Vitamin D is oh so good (so good, so good, so good)
They're cal-ci-fied (ba ba bah)
Didn't think they ever would
Oh, no, no

[please feel free to hum the instrumental part]

Sweet bones of mine (ba ba bah)
My joints never felt so good
Sweet bones of mine (ba ba bah)
Just like my doc said they would
Sweet bones of mine...

“Sur-ger-ay”

Written by Alan M. Reznik, MD 2012
(To be sung to the tune Yesterday from The Beatles' album “Help” 1965)

Yesterday, all my ailments seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, the doctor said it just had to be
There are nurses hanging over me
Oh, surgery came suddenly

Why did my arm break I don't know,
Doc wouldn't say
I did something wrong
Now I will have sur-ger-ay-a-a-a

Yesterday, football was an easy game to play
Now I need a sling to hide away
Oh, I believe in sur-ger-ay

Why'd I dislocate
I don't know, doc wouldn't say
My arm looks so wrong
Now I long for sur-ger-ay-a-a-a

Yesterday, football was an easy game to play
Now I need a sling to hide away
Oh, I believe in sur-ger-ay

'Nother day, football will be the fun game to play
I'll be well and hide my sling a-way
Oh, I believe in sur-ger-ay

O-h, I believe in sur-ger-ay

Broken Bones

Written by Alan M. Reznik, MD 2011
(Based on the tune of Silver Bells)

City sidewalks, Slip'ry sidewalks
See them covered in snow
In the air there's a feeling of winter

Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner you'll hear

Broken Bones, Broken bones
It's winter time in the city
Slip-a-long, hear their song
Soon it will be casting time

Strings of nurses get the doctor
Bring the sur-ge-ry team
An-es-the-sia to sleep
With dream pleasures
Hear the bones crunch
See the “Docs” bunch
This Or-tho-pae-dic scene
And above all this bustle you'll hear

Broken bones, Broken bones
It's winter time in the city
Slip-a-long, hear their song
Soon it will be casting time

Broken bones, Broken bones
Soon it will be casting time
Soon it will be casting time

All My Favorite Things

By Alan M Reznik, MD MBA 2010

Sutures on needles and scissors on tables;
White steri-strips and silvery skin staples;
Blue surgery drapes all tied up with strings;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cream-colored dressings, elastic ace wrappings;
O-Rs and E-Rs and bones that are cracking,
Nurses help out when the telephone rings;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Arthro-scopic lenses with video screen dashes;
Safety shields stay on my nose and eyeglasses;
Silver-white an-es-thesia for sleeping;
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the knee breaks,
When the shoulder stings,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Joint Crisp-ness

By Alan M Reznik, MD, MBA 2009
(Sung to the tune of White Christmas)

I'm dreaming of a Joint Crisp-ness
Just like the one I used to know.
Where the cartilage glistens
And we all listen
To hear footprints in the snow.

I'm dreaming of a joint smoothness
At every sports game I do play.
With goals I’m scorin’
The fans are roarin’
Then the referee’s whist—le blows.

I’m reeling from a joint stiffness
Now that I have twisted my knee.
With meniscus smitten
And Doctor’s written
For the quick scope fixin’ we all know.

I'm recouping from my injury
Now that I had knee surgery.
With cartilage repair
And doctor’s good care
From recovery ready to go.

I'm dreaming of a Joint-Crisp-ness
With every running move I make.
May your days be merry
And Bri—ght
And may all your Joint-Crispnesses be right.


Frosty the Shoulder

By Alan M. Reznik, MD, MBA 2008
(The tale of a truly frozen shoulder,To be sung to the tune of ‘Frosty the Snowman’)

Frosty the shoulder was a sad, unhappy soul,
With a corncob arm and unbending neck
And two eyes made of coal.
Frosty the shoulder is a fairy tale, they say,
He was stiff as snow but the children
Know, how he came to life one day.

JThere must have been some magic in that
Old doc-tor they found.
When operated through small holes
He began to dance around.

O' Frosty the shoulder
Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh
And play just the same as you and me.

O' Frosty the shoulder
Was moving to and fro.
Throwing, catching, and play-ing
Over the hills of snow.

O' Frosty the shoulder
Left smiling that day
Thumpetty thump, thump thump,
Thumpetty thump, thump thump,
Waving all the way.

Walking in Winter Wonderland’

By Alan M Reznik, MD 2007
(Sing to the tune of Winter Wonderland by Dick Smith, and Felix Bernard 1934)

Gone away is the Tylenol,
We are here to have a big-ball
Singing to a song,
As we dance along,
Strolling in a winter wonderland.

Joints a- creak’n, are you listening,
In the lane, ice is glistening
A beautiful fright,
We're anxious tonight,
Slipping in a winter wonderland.

Later on, we'll conspire,
Fractured knee by the fire
To face unafraid,
The plans that we've made,
Limping in a winter wonderland.

In the morning we can build a new knee,
Fitted up with its titanium crown
He'll say: Are you happy?
We'll say: Yes man,
And you did a great job
When you’re in gown.

The knee moves, ain't it thrilling,
Though your toes gets a chilling
We'll frolic and play,
the orthopedic way,
Crutching in a winter wonderland.

Joints all happy, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Just, a-
Skipping in a winter wonderland;

I’m a-
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Rudolph Had an ACL Tear

By Alan M Reznik, MD 2005
(Adapted from Johnny Marks 1949)

You know bursitis and arthritis
And cuts and blisters,
Strains and sprains
And fractures and splinters.
But do you recall
The most famous injury of all?
Rudolph with A-C-L tear
It made for a tricky knee
And if you ever saw it
You would feel very sorry!
All of the other doctors
Poked and prodded his bad knee
They never felt poor Rudolph
Would ever prance or would fly free.
Then one foggy Monday eve
A surgeon came to say
Rudolph with your leg so light
Won't you sign consent tonight?
Then all the nurses prepped him
And they shouted out with glee
"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
You're having Arthroscopy!"


Jingle Bones

By Alan M Reznik, MD 2004
(To be sung to Jingle Bells by James Pierpont - 1857)

Casting head to toe, in a slow and careful way
Over the cotton roll, reading the xray;
Bones in line setting, making spirits bright
What fun it is to sit and see a fracture fixed up right.

(Chorus)

Jingle bones, Jingle bones, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to right a bone in cast today.
Jingle bones, Jingle bones, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to right a bone in cast today.

(Chorus)

A day or two ago, I pranced around with pride
And now my casted limb was seated by my side;
The leg was lean and lank, misfortune seemed my lot;
I skied into a drifted bank and got my leg upsot.

(Chorus)

As the day went by, the story I must tell
Out onto the snow, and on my back I fell;
A doc was riding by, in a one-horse open sleigh
He saw my leg bent all around and fixed it right way

(Chorus)

Now the ground is white, I'm cast up and still young
Take the girls tonight, and sing this sleighing song;
I can't be there with you, out in the open field
So please come by and sign my cast, before my leg is healed

(Chorus)


The Night Before Surgery

Poem By Clement Clarke Moore
Adapted by Alan M. Reznik, MD 2003

Twas the night before Surgery and all through the house
Not to eat anything, not even a mouse.
All the doctor's orders, I followed with care.
With the hope that morning would soon be there.
Then, closing my wondering eyes so dreams could appear,
Where a miniature lens and eight instruments would peer,
And little tiny incisions so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment my knee would be un-trick.
Then more rapid than eagles his nurses all came
As he shouted, "Ligaments" and each one by name.
Anterior, Posterior, Medial and Lateral,
Torn Menisci, Cartilage and Collateral
Then fixing them all with a suture
He brought sports back to my future

And so up to the recover room I soon flew
With a face full of joys and anesthesia, too.
Then down the hall he came with a leap and a bound;
In surgical greens, and boots firmly on the ground.
He spoke not a word but went straight to this work,
And filled out my prescriptions, his pen with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his head,
Giving a nod up the hall and then toward my bed.
But I heard him exclaim as he strolled out of sight,
"Your surgery went well and have a great night!"


Jingle Bones

By Alan M. Reznik, MD 2002

Bone, Joint and Muscle
It's Time for the Holiday Hustle
With Doctor Reznik and his Gang
The New Year will come with a Bang.
To all those past mended,
We extend cheer blended.
Enjoy the season to the best,
And safety first before you rest.
We truly hope this card finds you well,
If not then please ring my bell.


The Twelve Days of Orthopaedics

By Alan M. Reznik, MD 200

On the Twelfth Day of Orthopaedics my patients gave to me:
Twelve ligaments tearing,
Eleven piper's fingers,
Ten toes a-spraining,
Nine ladies aching,
Eight maids a-limping,
Seven shoulders snapping,
Six knees a-catching,
Five nintendo thumbs,
Four twisting ankles,
Three fractured heels,
Two elbow cysts
And a cartilage in a bum knee!


A Poem from Years Past

The surgery is over
Recovery has begun
Some days are difficult
Some days are fun
Each day shows improvement
Your walking with ease
Keep up the good work
Take care of your knees!


One Last Poem

Last years shoulder problem
gave you some distress.
Now your surgery's over
We applaud your success.
A new year shows promise.
Your shoulder's improving.
Keep up the good work,
stay healthy, keep moving.

An Interview with Dr. Reznik

An Interview with Alan M. Reznik, M.D.

Why Orthopaedic Surgery?

Orthopaedic Surgery was a special blend of fixing things and caring for people. In college at Columbia University, as an engineering student with limited finances, the best work study job available at the time was working for a research group at Columbia Presbyterian's Babies Hospital. We studied Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, 'SIDS'. As a chemical engineering major, I was involved in understanding the affect of carbon dioxide on breathing feed back in babies as a possible cause of SIDS. Working on computer programs, running tests and meeting with the physicians regularly. The experience redirected my life path toward medical school. At Yale School of Medicine, taken with the science, mechanics, physics, problem solving and three dimensional reasoning required in orthopaedics, it was clear a career in Orthopaedics was in my future.

What is the most rewarding part of being an orthopedic surgeon?

The ability to restore quality of life, dignity and happiness to the patients who have had a part of their lives altered by an orthopaedic injury. It could be a worker that may lose their job if not mended, an athlete that is entering the last year of high level competition and injured in training, a child with a broken bone or a downed weekend warrior; they all present a challenge and potential rewards. In particular, after being in practice for over 20 years, seeing my young patients grow up, following their life stories, and having patients bring in their children with new injuries has created some of the most special moments of my day. A teenage girl who fractured her tibia a few days before her high school prom came to see me years back. Tears were everywhere and there were not enough tissues to contain them. She was so upset that she, in her mind, was not going to be able to attend the prom. Applying the long leg cast, When toldhow she could go to the prom with the cast on and her friends will have a great time decorating it with color, ribbons and bows she still refused to consider going. She would be special as the only one in a cast and matching dress, and she would have a great time! Still she insisted she was not going. Yet, something sunk in, her friends did decorate her cast, she did go and had a great time. It was wonderful but only half of the story. Years later, she returned with a wrist sprain. On asking how she was, she explained how her life changed that day. She learned that no matter how physically impaired she felt, life does go on and good things can still happen. In short, a physical impairment does not change who you are if you don't let it. She then told me something that gave me goose bumps. She was getting a degree in Psychology. Recalling her prom, she decided to work with spinal cord injury patients and help them rediscover their lives.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Golfing, walking my dog, traveling with my family, creative writing and inventing. I also enjoy creating an orthopaedic new year's card for my patients each year. Last year it was "Sur-ger-ay" to the tune of “Yesterday.” My first book is "“The Knee and Shoulder Handbook for All of Us" a guide to knee and shoulder problems, tips on how to get the most out of your office visit with your orthopaedic surgeon and some notes of prevention of injuries. My newest book is "“I ‘ve Fallen and I Can Get Up," a head– to-toe guide to causes of falls and fall prevention. Currently, a novel is “a work -in -progress.” Inventing is my other passion, currently holding five orthopaedic related patents for inventions to make procedures more accurate and minimize costs. One additional patent was granted on improvement in internet search. As of this writing, other patents are pending.

In what volunteer activities or efforts do you engage that mean the most to you and those you serve?

When first back in New Haven, I became a founding member of the Yale-New Haven Hospital's Orthopaedic Trauma team. Volunteering as the only surgeon on a medical mission to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, our team visited underserved areas and set up a clinic in a domed stadium to care for displaced residents of New Orleans without health care. In 2008, visiting Cuba and Bolivia: Cuba on a humanitarian mission and Bolivia to see first-hand the role of "Save the Children," in the poorest-of-poor countries in South America. In 2011, traveled to Haiti to perform surgeries on both children and adults in need of orthopaedic care at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital. In addition, serving on the game organizing committee for the 1995 Special Olympics, caring for special athletes from over 105 countries was a profound experience. Later, becoming the team physician for the New Haven Knights professional hockey team engaged my interest in sports medicine. A member of the clinical faculty at Yale University School of Medicine since 1989, I enjoy teaching and was awarded the Yale ResidentsTeaching Award

Books By Dr. Reznik

He has written two books. The Knee and Shoulder Handbook for All of Us, is a patient guide to shoulder and knee problems, diagnosis and treatment. It includes a guide on how to get the most out of your orthopedic office visits and tips for sports injury prevention in athletes both young and old. I Have Fallen and Can Get Up, is a book that explains the reason we fall and how to prevent those falls. It has a fall risk check list and a guide to how to make your home safer for everyone. It also includes an outline of medical conditions that contribute to falling and often missed on initial evaluation after a fall. It is hoped both these books will help all patients live better, healthier active lives with less injuries and if you do get hurt by a fall, sports participation or other injury you will know what to do next.
