Julio Petilon, MD, graduated from Amherst College as an All-American Scholar with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and received the Five College Latin American History Certificate at Amherst, MA. He received a Doctorate of Medicine from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, MA. He followed with an internship at the Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, VA. Subsequently he served as a Flight Surgeon, for VFA-106, a training squadron for F-18 pilots in Oceana, VA, where he was a primary physician for the entire squadron and supporting teams as well as logging hundreds of flight hours himself. He then completed a residency in orthopaedic surgery at the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, VA, and then served as a staff Orthopaedic Surgeon and Department Head of Orthopaedics at the Naval Hospital in Sigonella, Sicily. Dr. Petilon then completed a combined Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical spine fellowship at the prestigious Norton Leatherman Spine Center in 2011. Dr. Petilon’s practice focuses on the treatment of adult patients with both simple and complex spine problems, including herniated discs, degenerative disease of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, deformity, revision surgery and disease of the sacroiliac joint. Dr. Petilon evaluates each patient individually with a comprehensive approach, offering both non-operative and surgical treatment plans to help alleviate acute and chronic pain as well as associated neurological symptoms. When surgery is indicated, Dr. Petilon utilizes both open and the latest minimally invasive techniques to provide patients optimal results and recovery.
