Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Spe­cial Col­lab­o­ra­tion, Nancy Goss New­port, VT

North Coun­try Or­thopaedics and North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal are pleased to wel­come Dr. S. Glen Neale as its new full-time or­thopaedic sur­geon. The doc­tor is no stranger to the prac­tice or to North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal. He has worked at the prac­tice part-time for sev­eral years. On Septem­ber 14 Dr. Neale joined the prac­tice on a full-time ba­sis.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to our con­tin­ued work with Dr. Neale,” Mary Jane Man­fredi said. “He will work to meet the Or­thopaedic needs of the res­i­dents, vis­i­tors to the area, and the fam­i­lies of our com­mu­nity. Wel­come to North Coun­try Or­thopaedics, Dr. Neale!”

Mary Jane is the man­ager of the or­thopaedic prac­tice. It is lo­cated on Med­i­cal Vil­lage Drive on North Coun­try’s cam­pus.

Dr. Neale has a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence in every­thing from re­pair­ing sim­ple frac­tures to hip and knee re­place­ment surgery. In ad­di­tion, he has a strong back­ground in sport’s medicine, re­pair­ing sports re­lated in­juries and help­ing keep ath­letes healthy. He pointed out not all ath­letes are young peo­ple. Many mid­dle-aged peo­ple and older are re­fus­ing to al­low age to pre­vent them from en­gag­ing in their fa­vorite pas­times. Be­cause of this grow­ing trend, or­thopaedic sur­geons around the coun­try are see­ing more peo­ple in their 40’s, 50’s and older, with sports re­lated in­juries.

Although there is a na­tion­wide de­mand for or­thopaedic sur­geons, par­tic­u­larly in ur­ban cen­ters, Dr. Neale said he wasn’t in­ter­ested in trad­ing in the qual­ity of life found in Ver­mont for the city lights.

“I want to work in a small town do­ing gen­eral or­thopaedics,” he said. “I like the hands on close­ness that one has with a small town prac­tice.” Be­sides that, he said a small town prac­tice al­lows physi­cians to de­velop qual­ity doc­tor/ pa­tient re­la­tion­ships that prove ben­e­fi­cial to pa­tients.

Orig­i­nally from Rhode Is­land, Dr. Neale has lived in Ver­mont since the late 1970s. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Mcgill Univer­sity with a Bach­e­lor’s De­gree in Sci­ence, he went on to earn a Mas­ter’s De­gree in Phys­i­ol­ogy from the Univer­sity of Ver­mont (UVM). He re­mained at UVM through­out Med­i­cal School where he was a mem­ber of the Al­pha Omega Al­pha (AOA) Honor So­ci­ety (A pro­fes­sional or­ga­ni­za­tion for med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als who have been rec­og­nized as lead­ers and ex­em­plify the high--
