Bio

A Cleveland Ohio native, Dr. Laino was originally drawn to orthopedics as an opportunity to improve patients’ quality of life. He chose hand surgery in particular because of the intricacy of hand anatomy and the variety of conditions he could treat, including broken bones, torn ligaments and tendons, nerve injuries, sports injuries, and arthritis. For him, the most rewarding part of being a hand surgeon is helping to relieve pain and restore hand function so patients can get back to their lives.

After earning a BA in Psychology from the University of Notre Dame, Dr. Laino received his medical degree from The Ohio State University College of Medicine, graduating magna cum laude. He completed an orthopedic residency at the New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City, where he served as administrative chief resident. He went on to a fellowship in hand, upper extremity and microvascular surgery at Duke University Medical Center. During his residency in New York, Dr. Laino was a volunteer staff physician for New York City High School Football and the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater.

Dr. Laino is board certified in orthopedic surgery and a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. His many outside interests include running, golf and reading mystery novels. He and his wife, Catherine, live in Reston with their golden retriever, Cooper.

Dr. Laino joins OrthoVirginia from the Seattle Hand Surgery Group in Washington State where he was a staff physician in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery.
