Dr. Douglas Petraco, MD
Dr. Petraco graduated cum laude from Yale University in 1988, after which he received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College graduating with academic honors. His post-graduate training included an internship at NYU Medical Center and an orthopedic surgery residency at The Hospital for Joint Diseases – Orthopaedic Institute, where he was chosen to serve as an executive chief resident in his final year. Dr. Petraco also completed a research fellowship in biomaterials and biomechanics at The Hospital for Joint Diseases. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Petraco specializes in joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee. He prides himself on offering the latest advanced techniques in joint replacement surgery including mini-incision hip and knee replacement. As director of the Department of Orthopedics at St. Charles Hospital, Dr. Petraco was instrumental in bringing MAKOplasty® robotic partial knee resurfacing to the hospital. This minimally invasive approach, combined with a patient specific surgical plan allows more accurate implant placement resulting in a more natural feeling knee compared with total knee replacement. Patients are typically discharged home from the hospital the same day of surgery.

I have been seeing Dr Petraco for at least eight years and he has managed the pain and discomfort of aging joints successfully and professionally. I know that Kneew replacement is on the horizon and there is no question I would choose him as my surgeon. Minnie Goddard Orient, NY

DR PETRACO PERFORMED A TOTAL L KNEE REPLACEMENT ON ME 3 YRS AGO. I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE IMPRESSED WITH HIS PRE AND POST OPERATIVE CARE AND EXPERT MEDICAL ATTENTION AND FOLLOW UP. HE EASILY COMMUNICATES DIRECTLY. EXPLAINING PROCEDURES, AND RESPONDING TO MY CONCERNS, AS WELL AS ANSWERING QUESTIONS. THE RESULTS OF HIS SURGICAL TECHNIQUE WERE FANTASTIC AS I RECOVERED QUICKLY, PAIN MANAGEMENT WAS EXCELLENT AND I NOW HAVE A STRONG STEADY LEG TO STAND ON. THE SAME WILL SHORTLY BE SAID OF MY RT KNEE
in Farmingville, ny |
Having a total hip replacement was a very difficult experience, making the decision at 37 was even harder but I knew that I was in good hands with Dr. Petraco and I was right. He is an excellent surgeon! I bounced back within 3 weeks of having this done, no cane or walker and it's now been two months since my surgery. I feel like a new person, thank you Dr. Petraco!
