" Doctor was relaxed, thorough, clear in his explanation, willing to let me ask questions and to answer them. He kindly explained to me what exactly I was having performed on me today and what it may or may not tell about my condition. I was lying prone on a table and the testing was mostly taking place below my knees so he explained the electrical jolts and needle insertions since I could not see what was taking place. Relaxed but thorough pace of exam "

Full Biography

John Marino, M.D. is a physician board-certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Physiatry) and has been with Connecticut Orthopaedics since 2001. Dr. Marino specializes in the non-surgical care of musculoskeletal injuries and some chronic painful conditions.

Born in Teaneck, NJ, Dr. Marino attended college at University of California, San Diego and medical school at Howard University. He completed a one year internship in Internal Medicine and subsequently a 3 year residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Nassau County Medical Center on Long Island, N.Y. His residency training included serving as Chief Resident his final year. Dr. Marino worked with an orthopaedic group in New Hyde Park, N.Y. for 5 years before joining Connecticut Orthopaedics in 2001.

The medical specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, also known as physiatry, includes the care of orthopaedic injuries and chronic painful conditions that may not require surgery. Some of the more common injuries/ailments treated by Dr. Marino are:

  • Neck and back pain (including sciatica)
  • Sports injuries (e.g. tendonitis)
  • Arthritis, occupational injuries (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Peripheral neuropathies

Treatment may involve medication, exercise instruction, referral to physical therapy, bracing, joint injections, trigger point injections, and sometimes referral to an orthopaedic surgeon.

Physiatrists also perform important diagnostic tests called nerve conduction studies and electromyography. These 2 tests help diagnose common neurologic and orthopaedic problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, and peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Marino performs the study himself (i.e. there is no technologist) and explains how the test is done before starting.

Dr. Marino is active in the community providing medical supervision at local high school football games, as well as Quinnipiac University basketball games. He lives with his family in Orange, CT.
