Dr. Christopher Judson grew up in Suffield, Connecticut and is very excited to be returning to the area permanently. He attended the Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, Connecticut. He then graduated magna cum laude from Colgate University in 2007 where he majored in molecular biology. He received his Doctor of Medicine degree in 2011 from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, where he graduated as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Dr. Judson completed his orthopedic residency training at the University of Connecticut in 2016, where he authored multiple textbook chapters and research papers.

In addition to having a strong foundation in general orthopaedics, Dr. Judson is especially interested in surgery of the hand and upper extremity. He completed his Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.  During that year, he focused on treatment of disorders of the hand, wrist, and elbow. He has a particular interest in fractures, nerve compression, sports injuries, and arthritis of the upper extremity. He has also spent significant time treating pediatric injuries and congenital hand issues, Dupuytren’s disease, and performing microvascular surgery. He has extensive training in his fellowship, performing wide-awake hand surgery for multiple diagnoses, including carpal tunnel and trigger finger.

He and his wife, Jessica, reside in West Hartford, CT, with their daughter. He enjoys spending time with his family, skiing, playing guitar, and hiking with his two dogs.
