Board Certified – Orthopedic Surgeon / Fellowship trained in Total Joint Replacement and Total Joint Revision.

Dr. Perona is a Board Certified orthopedic surgeon, fellowship trained in adult joint reconstructive surgery. Dr. Perona’s main focus in his practice is in applying new and cutting-edge technology to make hip and knee replacement surgery easier, safer, less painful, and with speedier recovery. His use of cutting-edge technology, such as Minimally Invasive Surgery, Partial Knee Resurfacing, Shoulder Reconstruction and Computer Assisted Surgery has helped him to become a premier choice for joint care in the area.

Dr. Perona is also the leader in robotic-assisted surgery in the Illinois Valley. We are proud to have the first robotic-arm assisted total knee, partial knee, and total hip replacements with Stryker’s Mako System. This highly advanced robotic technology transforms the way joint replacement surgery is performed.
