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).

Dr Delos is the best! He performed surgery on my shoulder after a car accident and it’s 100% better! No pain and absolutely no problems after the surgery. He recently did a total knee replacement for me. I was in excruciating pain before the surgery. He was so compassionate with me. I could truly feel he felt my pain and wanted it to go away. He wanted the best for me and that’s exactly what he did for me! I’m completely pain free, have absolutely no problems with my knee now. He gave me my freedom back. He is a wonderful, caring, skilful, and knowledgeable doctor. I can’t say enough about him! I highly recommend him, as I said, he is the Best! (5 Star Review on Healthgrades from E.O.)
