Joint Replacement Center at Griffin Hospital


Hi there! My name's Amy Gagne.

I'm your Orthopaedic Care Specialist. I'm here to help guide you through this process - if you have any questions, send me an email or call 203-732-7524.



With you before, during, and after.

Griffin Hospital believes that the best surgical outcomes (results) occur when patients and their care partners are informed, engaged, and prepared for their procedures. Whether you are scheduled for surgery or a care partner, we want to help you feel at ease during what can be a stressful time.

  • Our orthopaedic care specialist is here to guide through the surgical process by taking the guesswork away, and serves as a link between you and your other care providers.
  • We host personalized joint replacement education classes to help you before, during, and after your procedure.
  • Before surgery, you will be given a Guide Book taking you through each step of the process and your care team will review every detail with you from preoperative education to postoperative exercise.

Griffin Hospital is participating in the Medicare Program’s Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program (CJR Program). Click here for more information about the CJR Program. The physicians at Valley Orthopaedic Specialists and Dr. Philip Minotti are CJR collaborators in the program in 2019.
