Testimonials

Dr. Delos explained my displaced meniscus injury and his recommendations for fixing it so that I could get back to doing what I could before. He was very clear and very positive in his description, diagnosis and surgery to be done. I had been suffering for over a month and received several other recommendations from another doctor. I felt confident that the surgery he recommended would fix the issue. He also was able to get me in for the surgery within the week. Arthroscopic surgery went well, physical therapy went well and I was able to walk without a cane and drive in 2 weeks. No pain after surgery. It was important to get to PT quickly after surgery and to follow the plan outlined by the therapist. I would recommend Dr. Delos for a knee injury.  (5 Star Review on Healthgrades, Aug. 6, 2019)
