Dr. Petrungaro's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Petrungaro "Jason Petrungaro, M.D. is a Plastic Surgeon who specializes in all aspects of aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries as well as surgeries of the hand and forearm. He is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. After graduating with honors from the University of Notre Dame, Dr. Petrungaro earned his medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine. He then completed his General Surgery residency at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, followed by a Hand Surgery Fellowship at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York, and his Plastic Surgery residency at the University of Tennessee in Memphis. Upon completion of his extensive training, Dr. Petrungaro relocated to the world famous Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas where he joined the Division of Plastic Surgery as a full time Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine, one of the preeminent Plastic Surgery programs in the nation. There he dedicated himself to patient-centered care, excellent surgical results, and training the many residents of the program to be our future Plastic Surgeons. In addition to developing a private practice, Dr. Petrungaro spent a significant amount of time treating the underserved adult and pediatric populations of the Houston area by serving as an attending surgeon at both Ben Taub General Hospital and the Texas Children's Hospital. After 3 years in Texas, Dr. Petrungaro answered the call to return home and has come back to the Chicagoland area to open up a private practice, Petrungaro Plastic Surgery. He brings with him the same dedication to his patients, surgical technique, and patient safety that has been of utmost importance to him since the day he began medical school. Dr. Petrungaro is a proud native of Munster, Indiana and graduated from Munster High School in 1995. He looks forward to treating the many wonderful people of northwest Indiana and the Chicagoland area as well as building an active presence in the community."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Petrungaro "Having Plastic Surgery is a significant personal event. It may be to cure disease or to make a body part work better, and sometimes a person has Plastic Surgery "on purpose" to change one's appearance.  No matter the reason, I dedicate myself to patient education, developing patient trust, and achieving excellent surgical results.

My philosophy on patient care centers on taking the time to listen to my patients and their concerns, and then develop a highly individualized treatment plan. I find great reward in spending time with my patients and keeping them informed and involved in decision-making throughout the entire surgical experience, from initial consultation through postoperative follow-up, with a strong dedication to excellent bedside manner coupled with compassionate patient-centered care.

Whether restoring form or function, my ultimate goal is to deliver the most natural, long-lasting results, achieved in the safest way possible with complete regard for patient well-being.  "
