Dr. Delos has a particular interest in minimally invasive methods of shoulder surgery and complex knee preservation surgery, including revision surgery for torn ligaments, meniscal and cartilage transplantation, and joint replacement (both partial and total). He also has a particular interest in biologic forms of treatment, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy, and has conducted seminal research on the topic.
As an athlete whose playing career was affected by a serious knee injury, Dr. Delos works with competitive athletes and weekend warriors to help them achieve their goal of returning to highest levels of activity possible. He has extensive experience caring for athletes of all competitive levels, including professional, college and high school athletes. He is a former assistant orthopaedic surgeon for the NY Giants Football team and is currently the team physician for the Purchase College Athletic Department and the Westchester Flames semi-professional soccer team. He also serves as a team physician for many local high schools, including Greenwich High School and Iona Prep.
Dr. Delos earned his medical degree from Weill Medical College of Cornell University and completed his orthopaedic residency at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS)/New York-Presbyterian Hospital. He completed a research fellowship at the HSS Laboratory for Soft Tissue Research as well as a surgical fellowship in Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery at HSS, where he was Chief Administrative Fellow.

My experience with ONS and Dr. Delos has been outstanding in every way. I had been suffering with osteoarthritis in my knees and was looking for a second opinion. During my first appointment with Dr. Delos and after his review of my x-rays and my medical history, he thoughtfully explained all of my options and we worked together to determine next steps. My condition was advanced and I had already tried medication and physical therapy which had not relieved my pain. I tried cortisone injections next, but this too proved to be of limited value and my ability to walk and degree of pain worsened. I ultimately decided to request bilateral knee replacement. Again, Dr. Delos went over everything with me in a patient and clear manner with all of the risks and benefits identified. I felt confident and prepared after our appointment and I knew that if I played my part both in prepping for and participating in the hard work after surgery, that I could return to a normal life. The entire ONS team was incredibly organized and helpful in every way. In no time, I was scheduled for surgery, booked for a pre-surgery class and all my questions were answered. Each person I interacted with was friendly, competent and caring. My surgery at Greenwich Hospital was a complete success. Dr. Delos and his team did an amazing job and the staff at the hospital was fantastic. I could not have asked for more. Today, 5 months after surgery, I am walking normally and without pain. I am continuing to exercise and follow the advice provided by my physical therapists and with each month that goes by I continue to be amazed at how different my life is than it was at this time last year. This surgery gave me my life back and I am forever grateful to Dr. Delos and his team of dedicated professionals for making that happen. (5 Star Review on Google from Ellen R.)
