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."
