Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. GonzalezDellaValle "I believe in providing the highest quality patient care, improve mobility, and enhance the quality of life for all my patients. I strive to listen to my patients in order to understand their symptoms, complains, and how their lives have been affected by their current problem.

I make sure that my patients understand their condition before presenting all surgical and non surgical treatment options in a balanced and unbiased fashion. I value my patients' input and attend to their individual needs; and treat patients and their families with dignity, compassion and respect. 

My typical patient is a young, active individual whose life has been affected by arthritic pain and who wants to go back to a pain free, active lifestyle. The procedures I most frequently perform are: total hip replacement, partial and total knee replacement, knee arthroscopy and surgical treatment of osteochondral defects in the knee. "

The doctor replaced my hip over 4 years ago and ever since I have been in pain. Not only is he of no help (after 2 surgeries), he's extremely condescending. I hope other people have a better experience.

After several surgeries with no improvement Dr Della Valle performed a TKR on my left knee. The only regret I have is that I did not know about him sooner.
