I had to miss last football season after a bad finger fracture. My finger became very stiff and wouldn't bend. Dr. Donohue performed a rare hemi hamate surgery to rebuild the finger joint. Now, my finger is fixed and back to almost normal, which is outstanding and a very rare achievement. I am back to playing varsity football. I feel very fortunate to have had the surgery that I did.

Would highly recommend Dr. Kenneth Donohue. He took a broken 92 y/o man and put him back to good health with two surgeries. He is a phenomenal and talented surgeon with great skills. He is kind and sympathetic to his patients and very compassionate. Again, I would recommend him any time to any one.

Kind, warm and a good listener. Dr. Donohue took great care to reduce scaring on my arm. It looks great!

I had a hand injury with a table saw on 2/26/17. Dr. Donahue performed a surgery. He is a great asset to medical field not with his abilities as doctor but with his humanity and personal skills as well. I highly recommend him. I can use my hand and my fingers.
Hamden, CT |
I had elbow tendinitis for 7 years before I saw Dr. Donohue. All non surgical options had failed to address the issue. Dr. Donohue performed a lateral epicondylar debridement, and anconeus muscle flap surgery 3 months ago. He was a very attentive doctor. The surgery was a tremendous success. I am completely pain free now and am progressively increasing my activities. The physical therapist has been amazed at the job he has done considering the poor and seemingly hopeless shape I was in before.

Dr. Donohue 's attention to my elbow surgery was remarkable. He made me aware of how serious this fracture was and what my chances of recovery would be. My questions were always answered. His care and concern before/after surgery made me feel like all was under control. Of course I did all the doctor requested in terms of recovery and now physical/occupational therapy. Many thanks to Dr. Donohue and his staff for complete creativity, attention to patient concerns and professional compassion. A+

Dr. Donohue is my life (arm) savior! The surgery, at age 74, was spell binding - the damage was fixed and today I have a capable arm once again. Dr. Donohue is a gifted surgeon and a remarkable person. Thanks to him again and again.

What can you say about a man who saved two of your fingers after the hand surgeons at two other major hospitals said amputation was the only option. A simple thank you doesn't begin to cover it. After a horrific table saw accident Doctor Donahue spent ten hours peering thru a microscope transplanting nerves, tendons an blood vessels to save my fingers and they're doing great. His compassion, competence and patience are a credit to the medical profession.

Dr. Donohue is one of the nicest doctors I have ever met. I can tell that he genuinely cares about his patients.
Cleveland, OH |
Wonderful Doctor. I saw Dr. Donohue 3 separate times for a shoulder problem last year. He is very thorough and takes his time explaining the problem and treatment options. He even called my physical therapist to check on me during therapy.

Best shoulder doctor ever. Bad break from a fall. Had surgery. Now good as new.
