This background instilled the importance of arriving at a precise diagnosis and helped sharpen his diagnostic abilities in patient care. Being well trained in all facets of clinical pathology, he developed a particular interest in coagulation disorders and autoimmune diseases. Doctor Pero continued his professional education in post-graduate studies in biomedical sciences at Wayne State University in Detroit.

Doctor Pero completed several externships, including one here in South Florida at JFK Medical Center and also at the Detroit Medical Center, an affiliate of Wayne State University, home of the largest single-campus medical school in the country.
Doctor Pero attended a 3-year Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery Residency in Michigan at St. John Providence Hospital where he received extensive training in orthopedic reconstructive surgery of the foot and ankle; as well as arthroscopic, endoscopic, laser, and minimally-invasive surgical procedures. Emphasis was on inpatient and outpatient management of adult and pediatric pathology of the foot, ankle, and leg.
