About Christian Petrulio
Dr. Petrulio came to Southcoast Health from Austin, TX where he was in private practice specializing in minimally invasive hand surgery. He is no stranger to New England, however, as he grew up in New Hampshire and graduated with honors from Harvard University.
Prior to medical school, Dr. Petrulio spent time with the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia, Africa. He then worked with a group of epidemiologists in New York City to develop an HIV vaccine at New York University, where he later earned his Doctor of Medicine.
After completing his general surgery training at Columbia University-New York Presbyterian Hospital where he was the Chiron immunotherapy surgical oncology research fellow, Dr. Petrulio completed his hand and microvascular surgery fellowship at the Kleinert-Kutz Institute of the University of Louisville in Kentucky where he was involved in one of the first hand transplants performed in the United States.
Dr. Petrulio is board certified in surgery.
