Meet The Surgeons

Cautilli surgeons have advanced orthopaedic fellowship training in a variety of
specialties and each has focused on excelling within a particular surgical field.

George Cautilli, M.D.— Joint Replacement Surgery
Arthritis and other diseases often affect the hip, knee, shoulder or hand, resulting in pain, stiffness and limited mobility. Major joint replacement surgery, especially of the hips and knees, has proved to be an extremely successful operative procedure. It allows patients with arthritis of major joints to get relief, return to activity, and dramatically improve their quality of life.

Dr. George Cautilli received his joint replacement fellowship training at the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He performs total knee and total hip replacement procedures for arthritic joints, as well as revisions of painful, worn or unstable prostheses.
