Paul G. Melaragno, M.D.

Dr. Melaragno is board certified and fellowship trained in the area of total joint replacement surgery. With strong training and experience he is one of the area’s most respected specialists in the area of total knee and hip replacement surgery.

He believes that communication with patients is one of the most important aspects of his work. “I think it’s important that physicians take time to listen to the patient, and explain what will happen before, during and after surgery,” says Dr. Melaragno. Personal attention to the patient is one of the ways that Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence provides a better experience.”
