Renowned for his work with professional athletes, Dr. John Vitolo has provided the latest techniques in orthopedic care to the people of New Jersey for over 15 years.
When choosing an orthopedic physician not only do you want treatment for your injury or condition, but someone who will stay with you on your road to recovery.
Backed by his team of qualified physician assistants and staff, Dr. John Vitolo is driven to see you the entire way though your treatment to a successful rehabilitation. This level of commitment is the product of Dr. Vitolo’s philosophy – that in order for you to achieve an optimal surgical outcome – you need the finest patient support and long-term care.
Specializing in injuries of the shoulder and knee, Dr. Vitolo approaches each patient uniquely, but with the same expectation for success many athletes look for in an orthopedist, namely, the restoration of the full range of motion, and the speedy return to an active lifestyle.
