"I would recommend OAM and Dr. Naujoks to anyone, for any orthopedic issue or problem." - Megan Aubrey, Patient
Great doctor! Went to him for a ganglion cyst on my wrist and he did an aspiration and cortisone shot for it. He was extremely helpful and efficient. He got things done in timely manner, and listened intently to my questions and concerns. Would absolutely recommend Dr. Naujoks for any upper extremity issues. – Elena Rotman
Genuine, highly experienced, and passionate about providing the best patient-centered diagnoses and treatments for all hand and upper extremity injuries and impairments, Dr. Ryan Naujoks is fellowship-trained and a Connecticut native.
Awarded his subspecialty certificate in surgery of the hand in 2016, Dr. Ryan Naujoks, a specialist in arthroscopic surgery for the hand, wrist, shoulder, and elbow, began his practice at OAM in 2010. Over that time there have been countless patients who have acknowledged that the decade-plus OAM veteran has cultivated quite a distinguished career and built a consummate reputation simply through providing exceptional patient care.
Recently, a patient named Megan Aubrey was compelled to inform OAM just how much of her daily function has been restored after the exemplary experience she had under Dr. Naujoks’ care. Megan, who had fractured her wrist and elbow, needed two surgeries and had to have pins and plates inserted in her radius and humerus bones. She was taken to Middlesex Hospital, where Dr. Naujoks was on call. That initial visit, followed by diagnostic tests, two surgeries, and follow-up visits to the Westbrook and Middletown offices, gave her the impetus she needed to share her story.
Even before she learned his name, Megan was clued in on how she was in the best possible care when the staff at the Hospital told her of Dr. Naujoks’ reputation and proven expertise in hand and upper extremity trauma. Because of the extent of the necessary treatment, Megan was understandably very nervous, but the compassion and understanding shown by Dr. Naujoks each step of the way made her feel entirely at ease.
“I would recommend OAM and Dr. Naujoks to anyone, for any orthopedic issue or problem,” she says. “In fact, I’ve already been referring friends to them, because their specialists are so professional and confident.” Such patient experiences are why OAM continues to grow as one of the most respected orthopedic centers of its kind in New England.
Dr. Naujoks, whose other specialties include carpal tunnel syndrome and all upper extremity arthritis conditions, is also a noted expert in Dupuytren’s Contracture, a progressive condition that affects a person’s ability to extend their fingers. In addition to surgery, when applicable he uses non-surgical methods such as collagenase treatments (enzyme injections) and needle aponeurotomy (tissue manipulation), both of which can be used to treat Dupuytren’s Contracture.
Dr. Naujoks attends national and international training and educational sessions annually to stay informed of the latest advancements in hand and upper extremity techniques.
