“Dr. Lellman has a rich past with Baystate Mary Lane Hospital and the communities we serve and we are excited to welcome him back. He possesses a wealth of experience, a high level of enthusiasm and an unwavering commitment to providing excellent orthopedic care to the patients he cares for,” said Joan Sullivan, President of Baystate Mary Lane Hospital and the Baystate Health Eastern Region.
Dr. Lellman specialized in Orthopedics and Orthopedic Surgery and earned a medical degree from Albany Medical College, Albany, NY. He completed his residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Worcester, MA and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons
“I’m looking forward to being a member of the team of healthcare professionals who provide care close to home at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital,” said Dr. Lellman. “I like the prospect of working in a small, tight knit hospital which has an affiliation with Baystate Medical Center. As resident of Florence, I’m just thrilled to be able to provide care in this community close to my home.”
According to Lellman, his lifelong involvement in sports drew him to orthopedics and orthopedic surgery. From simple fracture care to the latest in Orthopedic surgical procedures, Lellman tells of a passion in orthopedic medicine and how much joy he finds in restoring function and returning his patients to their normal daily activities. “Success for me is a satisfied patient, one who is happy with the care I have provided as well as their outcome,” said Dr. Lellman.
Number one on his list of special interests, Dr. Lellman lists his wife Martha and his four children. Lellman, an avid cyclist who has been involved in competitive road and cyclocross racing since 1993, has a long history and love for sports. He is associate physician for the US Ski Jumping Team, the team physician for the Northampton High School football team for the last seven years, and is on the board of directors of the Northampton Cycling Club. In addition to cycling, Dr. Lellman enjoys snowboarding, cross country skiing, and plays baseball for the Quabbin Valley Over Thirty Baseball League. Dr. Lellman knows the challenges and risks for a serious injury that accompany these sports, giving him a greater compassion for the patients he treats.
“From the specialist offering diagnostic procedures in the Radiology Department, the Surgical Services Team who offer both an inpatient and outpatient surgical care, to the Physical Therapists from Baystate Rehabilitation at Mary Lane Hospital, we will ensure that all our patients receive excellent orthopedic care while remaining close to home and their loved ones,” said Lellman
