Dr. Delwyn J. Worthington, MD

Orthopedic Surgery | Male | 60 years old

I entered college as a business major, but I soon realized that I enjoyed the science classes more. Because of that, I switched to medicine. I discovered in medical school that the orthopaedic surgeons were the happiest. I like the three-dimensional problems that orthopedics provides because my brain works that way. I also enjoy the variety of orthopaedic problems, including the complex issues such as leg lengthening and post-traumatic deformity correction.Read more

Dr Worthington performed total knee replacement on a very painful arthritic knee. I am now completely pain free. The artificial joint feels like my own knee with full return to all normal activities. He is a great orthopedic surgeon I would recommend to anyone.

Dr. Worthington gave me my life back. I had bilateral partial knee replacements at the end of January. I felt he cared about me and offered clear information about surgery and recovery. I just hiked 5.4 miles of a very strenuous trail in the Great Smoky Mountains.
