Found a talented and extraordinary surgeon
“My daughter recently had surgery on her left foot and leg by Dr. Kleeman and we couldn’t be happier. The care, concern, and professionalism of Dr. Kleeman and his staff was exceptional. He is an excellent surgeon, highly knowledgeable, and cares for his patients. We are lucky to have found a talented and extraordinary surgeon so close to home!”
I have 100% range of motion and am pain free
“In June of 2017 Dr Frank performed a frozen shoulder release, bicep tendon repair, labrum repair, and subacromial decompression on me. At 8 weeks post surgery I have 100% range of motion and am pain free. Dr Frank is a highly skilled surgeon and a very caring physician. He spent a great deal of time with me discussing the procedure and anesthesia which involved wearing a catheter for pain management for 8 days. My procedure was a bit more complex than most shoulder arthroscopy surgeries and as such carried increased risks. I did not have a single complication and am absolutely thrilled with the end result. I will be forever grateful for Dr. Frank’s skill, expertise, and kindness.”
I have two new knees and a new life
“Congrats to all at Coastal. I have worked with these guys for many years. They don’t come better than Coastal. And thanks to Mike Lynch. I have two new knees and a new life.”
Quick turnaround time!! Wonderful follow up!! Highly recommend!!!
“Coastal Orthopaedics express urgent care is amazing!!!!! We have used it four times so far and each and every time it’s been amazing!!!! No wait, knowledgeable and skilled doctors and PA’s and nurses and staff!!! Quick turnaround time!! Wonderful follow up!! Highly recommend!!! Also had a knee replacement in February 2017!! It was so successful and the support received before, during and after was magnificent!!!! The injuries treated were fractured ankle, fractured finger, badly bruised knee and a incision abscess!!!”
I Felt Confident in the Care that My Daughter Received
“My daughter broke her arm last week at school. We were told to bring her to Coastal Orthopedics in Norwalk by our pediatrician. I want to thank everyone there for the for the tremendous care my daughter received. From the person that checked us in, to Greg Jenkins, to the x-ray technicians (sorry I don’t remember their names), and finally Dr. Soojian. Everyone was gentle and kind, and did their best to comfort my daughter (and wife) during this stressful time. Most of all I felt confident in the care that my daughter received, and was relieved that a specialist was on sight to lead her care.”
I Will be Forever Grateful
“I met the folks at Coastal Orthopeodic about 15 years ago when I had the misfortune of breaking my ankle in a sledding accident (no kidding). It was Thanksgiving Day and luckily Dr. Paul Protomastro was on duty and fixed up a pretty complicated multiple fractured ankle—after a couple of months I was good as new.
I am now 59 and started to feel pain in my right knee while skiing. I went to Coastal and met Dr. Michael Lynch who quickly diagnosed the issue as a loss of cartilage.
We started off with minimalist solutions like cortisone and synovatic fluid injections, icing and a highly specialized “unloader”knee brace. This went on for about four years. In late 2015, Dr. Lynch and I decided to give it one last ski season but if things did not improve, we would consider knee replacement.
In May of 2016, I had the right knee (replaced) and in September 2016, the left knee.
During that process I had multiple check ins with Dr. Lynch to ask questions about my recovery. Three months after my second surgery I took a trip to Italy and Spain over Christmas and did a lot of walking with no significant issues. By January 2017 I was ready for the acid test: skiing. I skied for two days about 5 hours a day. No swelling-no pain. Since then, I have skied another six days and I am happy to say that I am back to a skiing form I had when I was in my twenties. While I am still in my first year, these surgeries have made my life a lot happier. For me giving up skiing was unthinkable and I am thrilled I did not have to. Whatever your situation, I can say that once you come out on the other side of TKR, it will be worth it-but you need to put in the time on therapy.
And most important—I have Dr. Michael Lynch to thank for this-I will be forever grateful for his skill and bedside manner. He was a real listener during the several years he was treating me and always was encouraging while being straight to the point. The staff at Norwalk Hospital was top notch as well.”
Everything after that was Fantastic!!
“A little trouble finding a parking place, but Everything after that was Fantastic!! Very busy in the waiting room but wait was not bad…Desk staff were ALL Very Nice!! Had last minute appointment with Dr Soojian, He was very nice, remembered exactly what the problem with my hand was & gave me a virtually painless injection of cortisone. Ohhhhh hand much better!!!”

Dr. Lynch & Dr. Brady: You Made My Dreams Reality
Dear Dr. Lynch & Dr. Brady,
“I’ve been meaning to send you this note and picture. This past November, I achieved a life-long goal of completing the NYC Marathon. The support from my friends and family got me 80% of the way but the last, crucial 20% were because of the two of you! Without having been in the hands of your expertise, my knees and back would have never survived. I’m beyond grateful everyday for doctors, specifically you both. You’ve made my dreams reality and allowed me to continue living the active life I love. Thank you for all that you do for me and everybody else. You leave a huge impact on all your patient’s lives.”
—Mary Christine Wegner
Dr. Fletcher: I Am Grateful Every Day I Swim
“Early in 2011 I was diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff, complicated with a bone spur that would catch in the tear. I am a life-long swimmer and as a fellow athlete, Dr. Fletcher understood how important it was to me to both repair the damage and have a good recovery so that I could get “back in the water”. He assured me that would be the case if I was diligent with my post-op physical therapy. After 6 months I had most of my strength back and after a year I couldn’t tell that I’d had surgery except the very small scars on my shoulder. It’s now been 5½ years and the attached photos show how much flexibility and range of motion I still have. I am grateful every day I swim for Dr. Fletcher’s excellent work. Oh, BTW, I’m almost 62.”
Dr. Fletcher: I Rate Coastal One of the Best
“Back in December, Dr. Fletcher repaired my torn meniscus and I was extremely happy with the results and how he explained the procedure and recovery process. He set me up with physical therapy and I did great. Unfortunately, I tore my right knee meniscus and had surgery yesterday. I went back to Coastal because the quality of care including Dr. Fletcher, his nurse and Sarah who scheduled the procedure. All done in a professional manner. I dealt with many doctors because I worked in a law firm who handled personal injury matters and I rate Coastal one of the best. Thank you!”
Dr. Frank & Dr. Lynch: Helped Our Family So Much!
“The Doctors do the surgery..but it is the people like Donna, Sarah, Michele and the people at the front desk that make Coastal work.
Dr. Frank, who happens to be from Philadelphia Eagles fan (I am from Pittsburgh, and a Steelers fan) drained my knee…but suggested that at some point I might need replacement surgery.
Fast forward…I did need knee replacement surgery and as my friend had used Dr. Lynch…it was to Dr. Lynch that I went to see.
Prior to my surgery Sarah was on the desk and I told her I was absolutely petrified about having surgery!..Sarah assured me things would be fine and gave me a card with her name and told me to call her if I needed any help.
Things did go well and I thank Dr. Lynch for his fine care. I recommend Coastal to everyone I know and I also tell them about the nice people like Sarah that are the real faces of Coastal.”
Dr. Stovell: Helped Our Family So Much!
“Coastal Orthopedics Founding Partner, Dr. Peter Stovell has helped our family so much!”
Lisa Cyr (Hand Center Therapist): Thank You for All You Have Done
“Dear Lisa Cyr, Thank you for all you have done to help my recovery, your professional treatment, encouragement and a friend to lean on. I wish you continued success and happiness, and personal satisfaction.”
Dr. Frank: I Am Pain Free and Have Full Range of Motion
“On December 7, 2015 Dr. Frank repaired my rotor cuff, bicep tendon, and torn labrum. Prior to surgery Dr. Frank walked me thru (in detail) the surgical procedure, what I could expect after surgery, including post surgical pain, and my rehab plan. Surgery went well and pain levels were well managed. Five months after surgery I am pain free and have full range of motion and my strength back. Dr. Frank is a skilled surgeon and a very caring person. Anybody who needs shoulder surgery I would highly recommend Dr.Frank. Thanks Dr. Frank for all you did for me.”
Dr. Frank: I Couldn’t Be Happier
“I’m 71, and had serious tears in both my rotator cuff and bicep. Doctor Frank did a thorough, highly professional and successful surgery. Now I’m told that recovery of my mobility and strength are much better than the typical patient, and I’m pretty much 100%. I couldn’t be happier.”
Dr. Lynch and Dr. Protomastro: I Left Having Had Great Care
“Dr. Lynch and Dr. Protomastro from Coastal Orthopaedics were terrific when I broke my wrist April 6. Dr. Lynch happened to be in the hospital when I was in the Emergency room. He came down to read the X-rays and set the break. He was calming, kind and informative so that I left having had great care. Dr. Protomastro met with me 2 weeks later to determine whether I would have surgery or not. His recommendation was surgery and he couldn’t have been more right. Never mind that I found him caring and informative…I also really liked his sense of humor! He told me I would be doing normal things in 3 weeks. I really didn’t believe him…but he was so right! I would also like to give kudos to the Hand Therapists who were wonderful, encouraging and caring. I hope I never have to go back there, but if I do, I will feel very confident in the care I will have.”
—Karen Barbarossa Sweeters
Dr. Polifroni: I Was Up and Walking the Same Day
“Just had a hip replacement with Dr. Polifroni, and can’t say enough great things about him and Coastal Orthapedics. So happy with the care from pre-surgery to recovery. I was up and walking the same day, and did not need any pain medication after I left the hospital… Seriously! Everyone told me to go to Hospital for Special Surgery, but I could not have gotten better care – at Coastal or Norwalk Hospital – and Dr. Polifroni is outstanding.”
Dr. Lynch: I Appreciate How Easy You Made This for Me!
“Dr. Lynch, Mae, Sarah, and Megan! I recently had surgery (ACL reconstruction) and wanted to thank all of you as you made the process go smoothly. It’s not very often that every person you come into contact with in an office treat the patients with as much compassion as I have experienced. I appreciate how easy you made this for me, from the scheduling of the surgery, the surgery, the care, and helping me through the processing of this claim/short-term leave. Oh, I don’t want to leave out people at the surgery center, they were great also! Thanks so much!”
Lisa, Tori and Maria (Hand Center Therapists): With Gratitude for Your Compassion
“With gratitude for your compassion and good humor as well as your professional care for my elbow for these many months. Happy holidays to you and yours.”
Dr. Polifroni: Truly a Great Doctor!
“I had a full hip replacement at 45 years old. Dr Polifroni is an amazing doctor! My husband had the same hip replacement a couple years later and there was no question who was going to do his surgery! Recommend Dr.Polifroni for hips and knees! Truly a great doctor!”
—Susan Bourne Swick
Dr. Brady: Literally Changed My Life
“After receiving an impact injury to my neck in the summer of 2014 while playing basketball I went to Coastal Orthopaedics for an evaluation. I had been referred to Coastal Orthopaedics and Dr. Brady by one of my good friends from MIT who is an orthopaedic surgeon on the West coast. In helping me review available physicians in the New York area, my friend strongly recommended the team at Coastal and Dr. Brady based on his stellar track record and previous experience. In December of 2014, I underwent surgery to fuse two vertebrae in my neck after exhausting all other possible solutions. I found it extremely reassuring that Dr. Brady and the team at Coastal helped me to arrive at the decision to undergo surgery by exhausting other options versus pushing surgery at the outset. My experience with Coastal and Dr. Brady post surgery and during recovery has been exceptional. Going into surgery I was given a detailed explanation of the procedure and was able to better understand the recovery process afterwards. Dr. Brady and his team were always available to answer questions and assist with any concerns I had. With the Coastal teams’ assistance I was able to make a full recovery and return to living life pain free and with limited long-term effects from the injury. I cannot speak more highly of the professionalism and capability of Dr. Brady and his team at Coastal. They literally changed my life.”
Dr. Polifroni: Professionalism Personified
“Between the two of us we have two new hips, and one treated knee… Dr. Polifroni is professionalism personified.”
—Stanley M. Seigel
Dr. Soojian: Did All the Right Things
“It has been twelve weeks since I first visited Coastal Orthopaedics, and I can confidently say that they did all the right things. Today, the arm that I fractured feels little to no pain and continues to improve everyday. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, responsive, kind, and excellent at walking through medical specifics with patients. While I’m sure all the doctors onsite are excellent, I’d recommend Dr. Soojian to anyone without hesitation!
Thanks so much for everything, Coastal Orthopaedics!”
Dr. Frank: I Am Totally Satisfied
“Last year I fell and completely tore my Rotator Cuff. Dr. Frank reviewed my MRI results with me and explained my choices. He did not pressure me to have the surgery but set real expectations for life with and without the repair. He did the surgery and the recovery process was better than described. He is great. I have effectively 99% of pre surgical use/range of motion on my shoulder. I am totally satisfied with Dr. Frank and the staff at Coastal!”
Dr. Protomastro: Improved the Quality of My Life
“For several years I suffered with pain to my shoulder and arm. I was referred to Dr. Protomastro who performed shoulder replacement surgery. Although I was very fearful I chose to have the surgery and I am very, very happy I did so. The surgery was successful! I highly recommend Coastal to anyone who is in need of orthopaedic surgery. The surgeons here specialize in specific areas of the body needing treatment. As far as I’m concerned Dr. Protomastro improved the quality of my life.”
Dr. Frank: Confident That I Was in The Right Hands
“After a fall, I needed shoulder surgery and Dr. Michael Lynch introduced me to Dr. Frank. After Dr. Frank assured me that my injury would not heal on its own, he proceeded to educate me on what I was facing. I felt very informed and confident that I was in the right hands. After surgery, there were many months of PT but I persevered and Dr. Frank kept track of my progress even though I was out of state. My shoulder is completely rehabilitated and I have full use of it due to his expertise and professionalism. Thanks Dr. Frank!”
Dr. Frank: I Am Skiing Again
“I am 67 years old and live in New Canaan. I am thrilled to say that my knee surgery for a torn meniscus was a complete success. I am now pain free and think of Dr. Frank when I bound up stairs. I am skiing again.”
Dr. Soojian: I’d Recommend Dr. Soojian to Anyone Without Hesitation!
“It has been twelve weeks since I first visited Coastal Orthopaedics, and I can confidently say that they did all the right things. Today, the arm that I fractured feels little to no pain and continues to improve everyday. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, responsive, kind, and excellent at walking through medical specifics with patients. While I’m sure all the doctors onsite are excellent, I’d recommend Dr. Soojian to anyone without hesitation! Thanks so much for everything, Coastal Orthopaedics!”
Dr. Lynch: Uses the Most Progressive Techniques for Knees and Shoulders
“Dr. Lynch and his staff answered all my questions with kindness and respect before, day of, and after my surgery. Norwalk’s Joint Replacement wing was private, clean, and comfortable. The entire nursing staff was gentle, and responded to my needs immediately. Don’t risk going to a “good” doctor for joint replacement. Because Dr. Lynch uses the most progressive techniques for knees and shoulders, six weeks after my TKR I feel great! I highly recommend this group for such an important procedure.”
Dr. Brady: I Am Pain Free
“I am 53 years old. I was nearly incapacitated with back pain. Dr. Brady performed a double spinal fusion of my lumbar spine six years ago. I work full time as an emergency physician. I play lacrosse with guys 25 years younger. I coach high school wrestling and wrestle with 18 year old boys who weigh 50 lbs more than me. I am pain free thanks to Dr. Brady.”
—Dr. Brian McGovern
Dr. Brady: Was Tremendously Helpful
“I had my spinal fusion done in June of 2008. I feel extremely lucky to have been under the care of Dr. Brady. He did everything possible to make the surgery go smoothly, and was tremendously helpful during my recovery. Having scoliosis was one of the most stressful experiences of my life (I was diagnosed at 11) and I’m so grateful for the care that Dr. Brady provided to both myself and my parents.”
Dr. Markey: Kind and friendly
“Dr. Markey was very kind and friendly and quickly put my seven-year-old daughter at ease when I brought her to him with a knee injury. His expert advice and treatment resulted in her full recovery.”
Dr. Soojian: Excellent doctor
“Excellent doctor. Had an issue with my wrist. Dr. Soojian diagnosed it and took out the fluid, which fixed the problem. I had almost no waiting time. He has a great approach and manner to his work. Took his time to explain what caused the fluid build-up and to explain my options and was very patient with my (many) questions. I would definitely go to him again. He also checked back in with me later to make sure I was okay.”
Dr. Soojian: He took his time to explain my problem
“Phenomenal Doctor! Dr. Soojian was very knowledgeable, professional and caring. He took his time to explain what my problem was (turns out I have a trigger finger) what I could do to treat it, ultimately what he suggested, and what I should expect down the road. We went with a cortisone shot, which in my experience is not pleasant, but it was actually quick and near painless! I would definitely recommend seeing Dr. Soojian for any hand issue you may have.”
—By Michael C from vitals.com
Dr. Deluca: Always very personable
“I have been seeing Dr. Deluca for several years. He diagnosed my damaged meniscus and performed knee surgery. He has attended to numerous sprains and such that come with my being a ski instructor. Always very personable and interested in how I am.”
Dr. Bast: He cares and he listens
“I had a fever and was in a lot of pain when I saw Dr. Bast this past week. He was very attentive to my needs; he took the time to think over the symptoms I described, and more than once took the time to be personable and friendly, making me feel at ease. He took x-rays, and then invited me to look at them with him while discussing my pain. He involved me in the diagnostic process and took my concerns seriously. He spent a great deal of focused time with me, which is why, I gather, his wait time is longer than average. I’m more than okay with this. He cares and he listens. I will certainly return to his care if need be.”
—By AMS from vitals.com
Dr. Bast: Thank you
“Thank you and, I have NO doubt in my mind, if you need a Doctor to help you? Dr. Bast is the best one. If you can, please, trust based on my experience over 5 years….”

Dr. Frank: Best Ortho in Connecticut!
“Dr. Frank is hands down the best Ortho in Connecticut! I am 33 and had to have my left and right shoulders repaired. I had my labrum and rotator cuff repaired on both shoulders. He did such a great job with the first operation that once I moved from the East Coast I flew all the way from the West Coast just to see him. He is very friendly, courteous, and to the point. He is very thorough in explaining your diagnosis, and he listens! Which is very rare in my experience with doctors. Although he is a surgeon… he is not surgery happy which is great. He believes that the physical therapy you receive is just as important as the surgery, and that surgery should be a last resort. I have recovered wonderfully thanks to Dr. Frank and his expertise.”
Dr. Frank: Very compassionate
“Dr Frank is the best. He is a very compassionate doctor and very talented surgeon. I would recommend him highly and I have to many people.”
Dr. Frank: So professional and thorough
“I had my shoulder surgery October of last year. I could not be happier with the results. After hearing many horror stories about what to expect, I was very pleased at how smoothly things went. With in weeks I was back at the gym, although limited, but back to my old routine. I now have full use of my shoulder. I have met several other people who have had the same surgery that I had, and I have to say no one has had a better outcome than I have. This was my first surgery ever, so I was a little nervous. Dr. Frank and his staff are so professional and thorough, I had complete confidence in them right from the start.”
– Lee H
Dr. Frank: My shoulder has recovered pain free
“Doctor Frank was very professional, he was upfront about every aspect of the surgery and the rehab needed. His follow up program as very useful in my recovery. My shoulder has recovered pain free. I have and would recommended Dr. Frank to anyone needing shoulder surgery.”
Dr. Frank: Next day I could walk on my feet
“My name is Chris from Stamford, CT. I have been sick for the last month, could not walk. My friend had to come to my house, take me out of the house. Went to several doctors, went to the hospital, but could not bend my knee, could not walk. My doctor made an appointment for me to see Dr. Frank in Darien, CT. Got there on a walking stick, went inside. I was out in one hour. Next day I could walk on my feet. It was great. It’s been great so far. Thanks Dr. Frank. Thanks a lot.”
Dr. Lynch: Knowledgeable
“Great “bedside” manner. Knowledgeable. Uses humor to relax patient very effectively. Dr. Lynch gave me a painless knee injection.”
Dr. Kleeman: What a great job you did
“Dear Dr. Kleeman, what a great job you did on Alyssa’s ankle surgery! She had been in pain for over 5 years, and told by several doctors that there was nothing that could be done. She is now back to dancing and has been performing better than ever.”

Dr. Polifroni: Thank you for the great results
“Dear Dr. Polifroni, thank you for the great results on my hip replacement! My surgery was Monday afternoon and I was released by Thursday morning and back to work in 3 weeks. You have returned me to a life without the horrible, constant pain and I am grateful that I received such excellent care so close to home.”
Dr. Kleeman: We all had tremendous confidence
“I accompanied a patient, Luca Vignale, who had a consultation with Dr. Kleeman yesterday. The doctor advised that a surgery was necessary, and Luca had to decide between doing it here with Dr. Kleeman or returning to his home in Italy and doing it there (he was visiting the US for four weeks as part of a leadership development program).
Luca decided to return to Italy, but I wanted to thank Dr. Kleeman and his staff for their excellent advice and care. We all had tremendous confidence in Dr. Kleeman. Luca decided to return to Italy so he could have the support of his family during and after surgery. Thank you to Dr. Kleeman and the staff for your patient attention to a visitor to our country. You made it possible for him to work through a very complicated situation.”

Dr. Fletcher: Has been my “go to” guy
“Being a professional athlete and pushing my body to it’s limit everyday, injuries are bound to happen. Understanding the importance of responding to and addressing these issues and injuries, Dr. Fletcher has been my “go to” guy. He gets me into his office, diagnoses, and performs all tests necessary to get me back on the track as soon as possible. If it wasn’t for his extreme attention to detail and thorough nature, many of my setbacks would’ve had me on the sidelines for a lot longer.”

Dr. Kleeman: A fine job during surgery
“On December 17th I fell and broke my femur while playing pickle ball at the Norwalk Senior Center. At Norwalk Hospital that night, Dr. Jay Kleeman operated on me and inserted a rod in my left leg. As a result of the fine job done during surgery as well as the support and encouragement he offered me during my rehabilitation, I was able to travel to Greece and on October 17th (10 months after surgery) I climbed to the top of the Acropolis. Thank you Dr. Kleeman!”
Dr. Fletcher: Immensely fortunate to have such an asset
“As an elite athlete there are countless questions that I want answered when it comes to my body and how to get it back to 100%. The husband (and coach) of an elite athlete, and an elite athlete himself, Dr. Fletcher has always handled my many injury scenarios with confidence, care, timeliness, and most importantly, accuracy. If you’re reading this, know that my words are bittersweet; bitter because distance now separates me from Dr. Fletcher’s incredible work, and sweet because I know you are immensely fortunate to have such an asset.”

Dr. Frank: Most knowledgeable and personal
“I required a right Knee ACL and meniscus reconstruction which I ultimately had surgery on by Dr. Frank in September of 2014. Dr. Frank helped me through the process both physically and mentally, keeping my well being in mind at all times. I am a avid cyclist and BMX bike rider with years of experience with other surgeons and doctors but by far Dr. Frank was the most knowledgeable and personal. He both helped and pushed me to get back to my wanted physical shape as soon as physically possible.”
Dr. Frank: Did a great job of repairing my elbow
“In December of 2014 I had a bad fall and broke my elbow. I’m so thankful Dr. Frank was my surgeon. Not only did he do a great job of repairing my elbow but he was very supportive during the entire process. Anytime I had a question or concern he would get back to me right away. He also constantly stressed how important the physical therapy was and he was right.”
Dr. Frank: I couldn’t be happier
“Dr. Frank has performed surgery on both of my shoulders and I couldn’t be happier. After chronic dislocations, I’ve been pain-free since surgery. He’s very straight-forward, always remembers your situation and gets my vote of confidence.”
