John Martino, M.D.
Dr. John Martino is a fellowship-trained adult reconstructive surgeon who specializes in hip and knee replacement, including the anterior approach to hip replacement (direct anterior approach, DAA), partial knee replacement, total knee replacement, hip and knee replacement revision, and the management of hip and knee replacement infections (prosthetic joint infection, PJI). He also cares for sports medicine injuries and other patients with surgery of the shoulder, ankle, and hand.
Dedicated to utilizing the latest leading-edge techniques, Dr. Martino performs anterior hip replacement surgery and is one of the only doctors in the region performing this advanced, muscle-sparing procedure. He also performs partial knee replacement to help patients get back to their lives faster with a smaller incision and shorter hospital stay. Many partial knee replacements can be performed on an outpatient basis.
In Gainesville, Florida, he received his bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida and his doctor of medicine degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine. After earning his medical degree, Dr. Martino went to Sacramento, California, to undergo a general surgery internship at the University of California Davis before completing his residency training in orthopedic surgery at the University of Missouri Health School of Medicine in Columbia, Missouri. After his residency, he received additional training through an adult reconstructive surgery fellowship at Carilion Clinic and Virginia Tech School of Medicine in Roanoke, Virginia. Through his fellowship, he learned advanced techniques to safely perform the anterior approach to hip replacement on the majority of patients with hip arthritis as well as the management of revision and knee replacements and prosthetic joint infections.
His goal is to treat every one of his patients how he would want a member of his family treated when they seek medical care—honestly, openly, fairly, and expertly.
Dr. Martino provides specialized, experienced care to patients at our Bristol – Hospital location.
Outside of practicing medicine and doing medical mission work, Dr. Martino likes to spend time with his wife, two kids, and dogs and keep active by hiking, backpacking, working out, and playing sports. He also enjoys brewing his own craft beer.
