My name is Doctor Jason Petrungaro, and please allow me to be the first person to welcome you to Petrungaro Plastic Surgery!
I am a proud native of Munster, Indiana who graduated from Munster High School in 1995. I then attended the University of Notre Dame, graduating with honors in 1999. From there I received my medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2003. My training includes a residency in General Surgery at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago (2008), a.. fellowship in Hand Surgery at the University of Rochester in New York (2009), and a residency in Plastic Surgery at the University of Tennessee in Memphis (2011).
Prior to founding my private practice and returning to my home of Northwest Indiana and the Chicago area, I was an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world. The Plastic Surgery program at Baylor College of Medicine is widely accepted as one of the finest and most prestigious in the nation. I spent a significant amount of time at Houston Methodist Hospital, Ben Taub General Hospital, and the Texas Children's Hospital, caring for people of all ages suffering from trauma, cancer, and functional or aesthetic problems. I gladly dedicated a significant amount of time to the plastic surgery residents of Baylor College of Medicine, educating them and training them to be future plastic surgeons.
board-certified-plastic-surgeonI am a board certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in all aspects of plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgeries as well as surgeries of the hand and forearm. Having completed full residencies and fellowships in General Surgery, Plastic Surgery, and Hand Surgery, I take pride in being able to expertly address essentially any patient's surgical needs anywhere on the body. I firmly believe in the philosophy of patient-centered care: focusing on taking the time to truly listen to my patients and their concerns. Together we will develop a treatment plan specifically tailored to the individual. I find great reward in spending time with my patients and keeping them informed and involved in the decision-making process throughout the entire surgical experience, from initial consultation to postoperative follow-up, with a strong dedication to excellent bedside manner coupled with compassionate care. At Petrungaro Plastic Surgery, the patient comes first. We hope to see you in the office soon!
