Deana Fanello is a certified nurse practitioner who sees new orthopedic patients or those as a follow-up after a medical procedure or surgery. She provides care for all aspects of orthopedics, fracture care or trauma, including patients with joint or spine problems, including shoulder, back, neck or hand, including osteoporosis. As a Certified Nurse Practitioner, Deana works under the direction of Dr. Michael R. Viau and also assists him in surgery. Deana provides joint injections as well as spinal cord stimulation to patients in our office.

Deana provides patients with a continuity of care from their office visit, to surgery and follows up with post-surgery patients both in the hospital and later in the office after discharge. This benefits and provides comfort to patients since they know the same nurse who cared for them in the office will be holding their hand as they fall asleep in the operating room, and will be there as they recover from surgery.

Allowing patients to make informed decisions, Deana gives patients information and answers questions about their condition, medical procedure or options. She approaches care for her patients like she would care for her family, with an easy-going, friendly manner, and she expresses her passion for orthopedic medical care through her dedicated care to each patient. Deana Fanello sees patients age 12 and up.
