Care Philosophy

As a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, with advanced certification in surgery of the hand, I focus on the evaluation and treatment of hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder problems. I trained at the Johns Hopkins University, where I completed my undergraduate degree, my medical degree, and an orthopaedic surgery residency. Upon completion of my hand and microsurgery fellowship at the Curtis National Hand Center in 1987, I returned to the First State--my home state--to serve my community.

All business but reassuring. Surgery went very well and just as explained. I would recommend Dr. Sowa to anyone.
in Newark, DE |
I just left Dr. Sowa's office and am always amazed at the efficiency!!! I have seen Dr. Sowa numerous times for various issues and have never waited, he is always on time, he truly values his patients time, and because of that, if ever he has an emergency and I have to wait a bit, that would not be a problem for me. His office staff is just as efficient!!! Over and above that, he is always so professional, knowledgeable, reserved, kind and gentle. I feel so blessed to have him as my doctor.

Dr. Sowa has been my orthopedic surgeon for over 10 years. He has performed numerous procedures with the utmost care and each healed with no further problems. He is always on time for appointments and always has a clear path to correct any issues; so much so that I travel back to Delaware even though I have moved from the area. I would highly and have recommended him to family members and friends.
in Bear, DE |
Dr. Sowa is truly dedicated to the needs of his patients. He and his staff are always kind, informative, and prepared to go above and beyond to ensure the best medical care is provided. I have been a patient of Dr. Sowa for several years, presenting him with occasional complex hand, wrist, and arm injuries that require immediate attention, and each time, he and his staff have accommodated me with excellent service! Thanks so much, Dr. Sowa, for putting humpty dumpty together so many times...

Dr. Sowa operated on my left ring finger, for what known as trigger finger. I feel he was very professional and the use of my finger is back to normal.
