Dr. Lavanya Jitendranath is a fellowship-trained infectious disease physician at Hartford HealthCare Medical Group. She completed her infectious disease fellowship at Seton Hall University. She is also a wound specialist.

As an Infectious Disease Specialist she works collaboratively with other specialty doctors to provide special insight and expertise regarding the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infections caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites acquired in the U.S. or overseas.

Dr. Jitendranath is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and in the ABIM subspecialty of Infectious Disease. The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.

Through her full-time active clinical practice, Dr. Jitendranath provides both inpatient and outpatient infectious disease consultations, as well as pre-post travel care. She has special interest in treatment of bone and joint infections.

Another special interest is antibiotic stewardship which is using antibiotics responsibly: right drug, right time, right dose, right duration.
