The certification, facilitated by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, is optional and demonstrates to his patients and our community that he has met Board Standards and has a good understanding of all areas of the hand. Dr. McLaughlin holds clinics in both Morrisville and Waterbury Mansfield Orthopaedics locations and performs surgery at Copley Hospital.
“This certification further validates Dr. McLaughlin’s expertise and knowledge – something Copley and Mansfield Orthopaedics are very proud of,” states Copley CEO Art Mathisen.
