Dr. Sean Esmende is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeon specializing in treating a large variety of conditions of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. These conditions include degenerative spinal disease, myelopathy, scoliosis, flatback syndrome, revision spine surgery, trauma and oncologic disorders of the spine.
Prior to coming to Connecticut, he completed his undergraduate education at Cornell University and medical school at the University of California Los Angeles. He then completed his orthopaedic residency as well as an orthopaedic trauma fellowship at Brown University/Rhode Island Hospital. He completed his spine fellowship training at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
He has numerous peer-reviewed publications, written textbook chapters about spinal disorders, and has presented at national and international spine meetings.
Dr. Esmende firmly believes in the art of medicine: correlating patient symptoms along with physical exam and study results. In other words, Dr. Esmende believes in treating the patient as a whole and not just the disease. Surgery is always the last resort after trying a full compliment of conservative spinal care.

To ensure that you have the safest and most effective medical care possible, it is important that you provide a complete medical history to your physician. If you agree, prior to your visit, we will send you a link via email that will allow you to complete your medical history at any time, at your convenience. Your encrypted medical history will then be transmitted to your physician electronically. If you complete your history prior to your scheduled visit, then we would ask that you arrive just 5-10 minutes early so that our staff can complete and verify your registration information. If you would prefer to complete your medical history in our offices prior to your scheduled visit, then plan on arriving 20-30 minutes before your scheduled visit to complete the medical history and registration process. We strive to be on time and to provide effective care to our patients. Having all of your “paperwork” out of the way before you scheduled appointment helps make that a reality.
