Meet Dr. DiStasio



Anthony J. DiStasio, II, MD

Board Certified Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon

If it is badly broken, Dr. Anthony DiStasio works to fix it, and with as minimally invasive surgery as humanly possible.

Dr. DiStasio’s focus is getting people through the pain of trauma and on the road to recovery.

After earning his medical degree from Georgetown University, Dr. DiStasio earned his stripes as the medical officer aboard the USS Saipan, and went on to advance the orthopaedic surgery and pediatric orthopaedics programs at the Naval Medical Center (NMC) in Portsmouth.

He received his fellowship training at the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, and then returned to NMC as director of the Orthopaedic Traumatology Division.

Dr. DiStasio joined SMOC with extensive orthopaedic experience in advanced arthroscopic surgeries, and is the first physician to perform minimally invasive total knee replacement in southeast Virginia.

Dr. DiStasio is considered one of the region’s leading “trauma experts,” and has focused his active practice on complex fracture management and the care of trauma patients with multiple injuries.

“The benefits of smaller incisions, less pain and more rapid recovery are becoming increasingly clear.” Anthony J. DiStasio, II, MD – Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon
