At the end of February seven people from our Excel Family took a week long mission trip to the Dominican Republic as part of the Levine Surgical Team with Children of the Nations. This trip is near and dear to our hearts as we have a group go almost every year. We help others by bringing our Orthopaedic skills and medical care to heal their injuries and hopefully improve their lives.
Excel would like to extend a warm welcome Dr. Daniel Haber to Excel. Dr. Haber is a 5th year orthopaedic resident at the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic program doing his elective rotation in sports medicine with Dr. Czarnecki.
Excel will be attending a couple of upcoming health and wellness events! We will have a table and will be bringing plenty of giveaways including chapstick, hand sanitizer, tote bags, t-shirts, etc. Don’t miss your chance to come say hi and visit some other great booths, as well! Event details below:
The first is the Health and Wellness Expo in Stoneham. This event is on Saturday, April 6th from 9-1 pm. The event takes place at the Stoneham Middle School.
The second event that we will be attending is the Woburn Health and Wellness Fair! It takes place on Saturday, May 4th from 10-1 pm at the James L. McKeown Woburn Boys and Girls Club.
We hope to see you there!
Excel offers monthly baseline testing for children age 10 and over. We offer a group discount for youth teams and organizations that wish to have their teams/programs tested. In the unfortunate circumstance of a concussion, we offer follow-up testing under the care of our Physician Assistants, in conjunction with each child’s Primary Care Physician. This process allows Excel to effectively manage each child’s concussion and helps guide a safe return to activity and determine the best course of action for each head injury.
ImPACT is a 20-minute computerized test that’s been scientifically validated to measure the effects of a concussion. After an athlete receives a preseason baseline test, his/her data is stored on a secure, HIPAA compliant server. If a concussion is suspected, a follow-up test is administered to see if the results have changed from the baseline. This comparison helps identify and manage the concussion. However, if no baseline test was performed prior to suffering a concussion, we are still able to do a follow-up test and compare it to the standard baseline for their age/weight group.
ImPACT is important as it can help answer difficult questions regarding an athlete’s readiness to return to play or school and protects them from the potentially serious consequences from returning too soon. ImPACT measures subtle changes in cognitive functions that cannot be measured using traditional MRI or CT scans. 200+ professional sports teams (including the majority of the NFL, MLB, NHL, MLS, NBA & NASCAR) utilize ImPACT concussion testing.
To make an appointment or for further information, please contact Bill Martin at email@example.com or call 781-782-1327.
Excel Orthopaedic Specialists’ staff members got in the Halloween spirit by wearing their costumes to work! We had a bunch of great costumes but the PT patients chose Scott Havemeyer as the best with his JJC costume. Thank you everyone for dressing up!

Excel Orthopaedic Specialists has launched a new website! The update is modern, clean and very easy to navigate. The goal with the update was to provide users with a better version of what we already offered. We wanted it to be easy to go on our site (still excelortho.com) and find everything you need in one place! We have expanded each individual doctor’s profile page, so you can easily explore and find out more about the doctor you will be coming to see. We took new pictures and updated bios of our therapists to easily allow you to feel comfortable that what you see is what you get. We made it easier to find our Frequently asked questions and forms you may need to download right on the home page! We hope you love this project as much as we do. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know! -> email@example.com
Thanks for visiting the new www.excelortho.com!
