Welcome to Suburban Orthopaedics

When there is pain, there is also hope.

Perhaps your passion is golf or tennis. For others, gardening or a long walk is not only their passion, but good for the spirit. But if you have pain or discomfort due to age, an accident or a sports injury, you're being kept away from many of the activities you love. Whatever your diversion in life, it is difficult to perform with your injury.

When the time comes to make a decision about the treatment of your injury, there may be no better resource for you than Dr. John Petolillo, Jr., of Suburban Orthopaedics.

As an orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Petolillo specializes in the repair of damage to the bones and muscles in your body.

Patients of Dr. Petolillo have found that they do not need to travel far to get advanced care from an experienced orthopaedic surgeon. Dr. Petolillo is board-certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and a member of many professional organizations. Each year, Dr. Petolillo attends medical conferences in order to learn about new techniques and equipment that may benefit his patients.

During his medical career, Dr. Petolillo has been helping people resume their normal, active lives with unsurpassed medical knowledge and surgical skill.

Solving problems through the ear.

Fast is fine for drive-through meals and overnight packages. When you visit Dr. Petolillo, he will take the time to explain in simple language exactly what has happened to you and why.

Then he'll use an ear – his ear – to listen to all of your concerns, and he will take the time to answer all of your questions.

This philosophy extends to the operating room, as well. In the event you require surgery, Dr. Petolillo will take whatever time is needed to provide a detailed surgical solution. On this, there is no compromise.

Teamwork makes the care work.

Dr. Petolillo has learned that increased patient involvement is vital to the complete success of any surgery or treatment. Throughout the course of your care with Dr. Petolillo, you will be given options for your care at every opportunity. This open communication will help you decide, along with Dr. Petolillo, the best course of action for your particular condition.

Committed to perfection.

The bones and muscles in your body are of the same design they were thousands of years ago. Fortunately, their care and treatment have progressed significantly. For Dr. Petolillo, learning the medical advances of his specialty is an integral part of healing his patients. If surgery is determined to be the best course of action for your condition, Dr. Petolillo will make sure you have every possible advantage in the operating room. Nothing less than this total dedication to your care will do.
