Dr. Giorgio Perino received his medical degree from the University of Bologna, Italy. He completed his residency in anatomic pathology and fellowship in surgical pathology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. His training also includes a fellowship in Orthopedic Pathology at the Hospital for Joint Diseases and a fellowship in Soft Tissue Tumor Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He has previously worked as staff pathologist at the Bronx Veteran Administration Hospital from 1994 to 2001.
Dr. Perino is board certified in anatomic pathology. He specializes in the histopathology of clinical and experimental orthopedic pathology. His research activities focus on the histological diagnosis of implant-associated pathologies and in particular adverse local tissue reactions to joint arthroplasty wear material, molecular characterization of synovial inflammatory disorders and animal models for implant infection, intervertebral disc degeneration, placental pathology and osteoarthritis.

One of the goals of Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is to advance the science of orthopedic surgery, rheumatology, and related disciplines for the benefit of patients. Physicians at HSS may collaborate with outside companies for education, research and medical advances. HSS supports this collaboration in order to foster medical breakthroughs; however HSS also believes that these collaborations must be disclosed.
As part of the disclosure process, this website lists physician collaborations with outside companies if payments were received during the prior year, or if the HSS physician currently receives payment. The disclosures are provided by information provided by the physician and other sources and are updated regularly. Further information may be available on individual company websites.
As of July 02, 2018, Dr. Perino reported no financial interest relationships with healthcare industry.
By disclosing the collaborations of HSS physicians with industry on this website, HSS and its physicians make this information available to their patients and the public, thus creating a transparent environment for those who are interested in this information. Further, HSS’ Conflicts of Interest Policy does not permit physicians to collect royalties on products developed by him/her that are used on patients at HSS.
