Happy Holidays--Wishing you Abundance in 2010

December 24th, 2009
I have been blessed in 2009 personally and professionally, and wish all of you a wonderful holiday, and all the best in 2010. My very special "Nana" passed on November 21st, and I was touched by countless acknowlegements from my patients.

Without each of you, and many friends and colleagues, I would not have grown in wisdom and experience, as I have in 2009. My feeling was serendipitously echoed by a Physical therapist- colleague in an early morning email:

"Just wanted to drop a note wishing you a great holiday season Dr. Tomaino! I appreciate all the patients you have entrusted to my care. I owe so much to each and every patient that I get to work with, independent of their outcome because they all present me with an opportunity to grow clinically and as a compassionate human being. Thanks again! "

I am privileged to have so many professionals, from a variety of disciplines, contribute to the mission of Tomaino Orthopaedic Care! Now more than ever, people deserve accountability from their providers, and I must say that my "circle of influence" is much wider because of the skill and dedication of nurses, therapists, anesthesiologists, office workers etc etc! Thank you to all!

My very first blog in 2008 was entitled, "Small is the New Big". And, after 18 months, I truly believe that we "compete" with much larger Institutions because, in addition to the highest levels of expertise and experience, we shoulder unparalleled access and accountability. Reread that blog!

Scale, however, does have its advantages. It enhances Brand recognition, and, arguably, broadens reach and impact! But as I reflect on my virtual "Network", ours is no less. In fact, ours is potentially greater---because so many special individuals are linked by shared mission. The total is greater than the sum of its parts.

In celebration of shared commitment, I am launching a new Internet site in early

This site will be replete with content regarding arm problems--and provide easy to navigate portals to the various providers that help make Tomaino Orthopaedic Care unique and successful. Indeed, I am assembling a virtual Network--"The Tomaino Arm Care Network"----
Access to information will help to streamline conservative care for your Hand, Shoulder, or Elbow problem , hopefully without ever needing to see me! I have invited Therapists, Chiropractors, Pain physicians etc to participate. The site will also facilitate dynamic dialogue--for those looking for information about their condition, what to expect if surgery is needed, etc Social networking will allow patient to patient communication.

This morning I also received an email from a patient, whose special message to me merits sharing it with each of you:
"May your new year be filled with abundance and joy, and the warm community of friends and family. May health and ease continue to flow through your being."

2009 was not a great year for many--economic hardship, personal loss, illness, pain.......
My intention, to the small extent that I am able, is to provide optimism and wellness, even amidst hardship. Having lost my grandmother reminds me of the priceless value of " the warm community of friends and family."

May health and ease flow through your being in 2010.



Happy New Year!
I miss you!
You are the Best Hand Surgeon in New York!!!!

I just read the story of Chippie the parakeet, written by Gary Carr. I funny anecdote about a parakeet who accidentally gets sucked into his owners vacuum cleaner, washed in the sink to get the dust off (after he survived!), then ‘dried’ with the heated air from a blow dryer. The author sums his adventure up with…”sucked in, washed up, and blown over”. As he goes on in the article, and as others have used this to relate to life, this is pretty much how we all feel at some point in our lives….most certainly after a traumatic event, illness, or injury. Sometimes it might be the little things that build up before we realize what has been happening.

What does this have to do with Dr. Tomaino’s latest blog? For most of us, when we have found ourselves in such a difficult situation as it relates to our arm, hand, or shoulder, it was Dr. Tomaino and his team to whom we turned for help. For some the relief might come in a very cut and dry fashion. “In and out”…as they say. For others, like me, the answer is not as straight forward. It is truly a blessing to know that a caring soul like Dr. Tomaino is not only there on the other side, but right along side you for the journey.
This past year has been filled with abundance in ways that I never expected. A true Grace.

May God continue to give you the grace to use your hands as instruments of His ongoing creation, and the same grace to see your heart as an instrument of healing among those who suffer and lie in weakness of body, mind, and spirit. May he pour out an abundance of His mercy that you may bring His blessing to those in need...

Happy New Year, Dr. Tomaino.

Dear Dr. Tomaino
I am excited about your new website!!! What a wonderful addition to Tomaino Orthopedic care. As said in the previous reply, for those of us who were more than just "in-and out" care, you were there for us every step of the way. It
has been a long journey, but one that was not walked alone. Your kindess and true compassion for your patients is a talent beyond compare. You are the best Dr. Tomaino- and may 2010 bring you and your family all the blessings and success you truly deserve.
