Review of Dr. Donohue


I received complete shoulder replacement surgery from Dr Donohue on Dec 13,2018. Before my surgery I was in extreme pain and could barely move my arm. Since my surgery,which has now been 3 months, I am now going to PT andI have no pain. I almost have full use of my arm once again. What a relief! Thank you Dr Donohue and your entire staff. Everyone Has been so helpful and courteous.

Review of Dr. Donohue


Six months ago a simple fall caused by a garden hose shattered my left elbow. Doctors at my local hospital knew that the damage was beyond their capacity to repair, so I was transfered to Yale New Haven Hospital where I was told of Dr. Donohue and his unique skills. Given the options of an "easier" replacement elbow, or a much more difficult and risky rebuild with uncertain results, I trusted Dr. Donohue's abilities and chose the latter. You have no idea how happy I am that I did! I was delight

Review of Dr. Donohue


My daugther was admitted into the hospital adn Dr Donahue was her surgeon. I was very nervous because this was my child's first time having surgery along with a serious infection. Dr Donahue explained everything thoroughly , stopped by her room every day and made up feel very comfortable during this whole process. He is great very gentle and wonderful with the children. Will definitely recommend him. Thanks for all you have done and making my little girl feel better again.

I would recommend Dr. Kenneth Donohue to everyone I know. He did shoulder replacement on me and I have 100% more range and can raise my hand over my head, which I could not do after my first surgery. Dr. Donohue explained everything thoroughly to me before the surgery and answered all my questions. Dr. Donohue's team is top notch. He did not treat like a number from day one. We never have to wait when I go in for my appointment and everyone is very nice.

Review of Dr. Donohue

-New Haven, CT |

Dr. Donohue performed surgery on me for a fractured radius and dislocated joint. He was very thorough in his discussion of my injury and the surgery he would perform. Six months post surgery, my injury is completely healed and I have regained, with physical therapy, nearly complete function. What was most impressive about Dr. Donohue was both his surgical skill and his supportive demeanor and compassion throughout the whole process.

Review of Dr. Donohue


On Nov. 13, 2018, I had an unusual fall and split my right heal. I was transported to the Yale Hospital by ambulance and fortunately Dr. Donahue was the trauma orthopedic surgeon on duty and he knew what to do. I was immediately taken to surgery and my heal was put back together with 2 screws. Amazingly, after the surgery I was never in pain. More importantly, at each visit, I felt Dr. Donohue was generally concerned about my foot and my personal well-being.

After 10 years of having problems with my left shoulder, I was fortunate to be recommended to Dr. Kenneth Donahue. On October 4, 2018 I had a reverse shoulder replacement. Every step of the surgery was explained to me in detail as well as the recovery process. Dr. Donahue is a fantastic surgeon but also a compassionate human being. After 4 months, I am feeling a 100% better. I would highly recommend Dr. Donahue to anyone.

Review of Dr. Donohue

- in Meriden, CT |

I have rheumatoid arthritis and it effected my right shoulder. I was in pain. Dr. Donohue performed a total right shoulder replacement on Nov.15th, 2018. He had a great bedside manner. I started outpatient Physical Therapy at Masonic PT on Jan. 14th,2019 and it is now Feb. 11th and I feel really good and my Physical Therapist says I am doing awesome. I have not felt any pain in my shoulder for the past 2 weeks. I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Donohue if you have any pain in your shoulders.

Review of Dr. Donohue

Dr. Donohue is amazing! I had an unfortunate biking accident in which I broke the scaphoid in my left wrist and Dr. Donohue performed surgery to implant a screw across the fracture. I'm a rock climber and it was a major bummer to know I wouldn't be climbing for a while, but Dr. Donohue consulted with me to help choose the best path towards a fast recovery. I always felt that he really cared for me as his patient and I was really impressed that on my first follow-up visit he remembered that I am
