Dr. John Prodromo

Specializing In Shoulder, Knee, Hip, & Cartilage

"I want to care for people like I'd want to take care of my family. When you do that, you give somebody that family feeling and give them your honest opinion of what you would do. They value it. There is nothing better than something being broken, torn, injured, and walking out of the operating room and saying, 'I fixed that.'"
Dr. Prodromo

Meet Dr. Prodromo

John Prodromo, MD, grew up in South Brunswick, New Jersey. The son of a physician and a nurse, his interest in medicine started at a young age. John graduated from Rutgers University Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Cellular Biology and Neuroscience. He attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine before completing his residency at Drexel University/ Hahnemann University Hospital, where he was the Chief Resident.

Driven by a love of athletics and helping athletes at all levels, John then completed a sports medicine fellowship at the University of Southern California, where he was a USC athletics team physician for football and women’s soccer. John is an avid researcher and writer. His research projects have focused on managing cartilage injury, the shoulder and throwing athletes, injury prevention, complex arthroscopy, orthopaedic education, infection prevention, both operative and nonoperative treatment of shoulder conditions and injuries in collegiate athletes.
