Bayhealth Division of Orthopaedics Welcomes Justin Connor, MD
Bayhealth Division of Orthopaedics is pleased to welcome board-certified pediatric orthopaedic surgeon Justin Connor, MD. He is in private practice and is affiliated with Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus and Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus. Dr. Connor provides care for children’s orthopaedic injuries and conditions, and he treats children as well as those over age 18 with pediatric neuromuscular conditions. He is now accepting new patients.
“We are thrilled to have an additional pediatric orthopaedic provider as part of Bayhealth Division of Orthopaedics,” said Vice President of Ancillary and Clinical Services Brad D. Kirkes, FACHE. “Dr. Connor is providing a vital service in our area for children with orthopaedic conditions with specific neuromuscular needs who shouldn’t have to drive an hour for such needed services.”
Dr. Connor earned a medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis, Missouri, and he completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C. He went on to complete a pediatric orthopaedic surgery fellowship at Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware and joined their medical staff as a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon with the Neuromuscular Division. During this time, he led the orthopaedic branch of the Spina Bifida Program and was an interpreting physician in their nationally accredited Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory. Most recently, Dr. Connor practiced as a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon at Overland Park Regional Medical Center in Overland Park, Kansas before returning to central Delaware to open his medical practice.
Based in Dover, his private practice specializes in pediatric and neuromuscular orthopaedics. He is strongly committed to extending comprehensive orthopaedic services to all children and those affected by neuromuscular disorders in Delaware. He also serves a critical need for adult transitional services for those with pediatric neuromuscular disorders that are no longer eligible to receive care from pediatric providers as they age. These conditions are often diagnosed at birth and require specialized care and treatment.
Dr. Connor has active clinical and academic research interests in the orthopaedic treatment of cerebral palsy and other neuromuscular disorders. He is a current member of the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America and the American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine. He also serves on the Board of Directors for United Cerebral Palsy of Delaware, Inc.
