Dr. John C. Carrozzella
Dr. Carrozzella was born in Philadelphia in 1956 and grew up in Wallingford CT. There, he attended The Choate School in preparation for college. He graduated from Yale University in 1978 with Honors in Molecular Bio-Physics and Biochemistry. In 1982 Dr. Carrozzella earned his MD from the University Of Cincinnati College Of Medicine. At UC, he placed in the top 5% of his class and he achieved a distinguished status by earning the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society award in his junior year, one of only 10 students in a class of 200 to do so. He was selected as the number one choice by the University of Cincinnati Residency in Orthopaedic Surgery, a significant accomplishment in a very competitive subspecialty field. By placing in the top 5% of his Board Certification group, Dr. Carrozzella again showed a superior medical aptitude. In the final phase of his early training, he was selected as the very first fellow of what has become one of the premier Hand Surgery Training programs in United States, the Mary S Stern Fellowship in Hand and Micro-Surgery.
