Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Deluca "I treat all my patients as if they are family members. I try to keep on time but occassionally there is a complicated problem that needs more time to evaluate. Even though, I am a surgeon I try to treat most orthopaedic problems with intial non-operative treatment and recommend surgery if it would improve function and quality of life."

Dr. Deluca gave me back my stability in my knee. He is extremely patient and listened to my concerns. I had a difficult time just walking down steps. Now I'm back to the gym and able to do just about everything I want to accomplish! My situation was difficult as this was my second ACL repair on the same knee. I faired well after the surgery and feel like a new person. THANK YOU Dr. Deluca! Your expertise gave me my life back. I'm looking foward to getting back on the slopes with my family!

Dr DeLuca was friendly and informative from start to finish. Discussing options for surgery and walking me through what to expect helped ease my worries. I felt completely confident with his service throughout the entire procedure and for my post op care. He and his team at Rothman are fantastic!
