Inspirational, Innovative Surgeon
“Dr. Steve Dellose is a most inspirational, innovative surgeon. He is always confident, comforting and compassionate with a smile. He took that extra moment to share additional insight or calm my anxieties as I approached the next stage of the healing process. I was fortunate and honored to be included in some of his latest creative techniques. In the early stages of my total knee replacement he detailed how I could guarantee my own success with a positive attitude and a dedicated physical therapy conviction. His philosophy permeates throughout the entire office, his surgical team and even his patients. We all sang the same tune…”your rehabilitation is dependent on your own efforts”…”it is very important to get your leg straight”…”0”degrees” the “sooner the better”…..”your recovery will be so much faster”…..How could I not listen and work even harder to achieve great results…..and I did!…Thank you Steve…..you are the epitome of the word “healer”. You have given me my life back.”
Doctor Galinat treated my bad knees for years Both knees were arthritic and bad. Shots and exercise kept me going so I could continue to play golf 4 times a week . I questioned him about knee replacements. He said I myself would know when it was time. My knees started giving out. When I told him, he said it was time. Doctor Galinat was now specializing in shoulders and not doing knee replacements. He made it a very smooth transition to doctor Dellose. I am now the proud owner of two new knees in the last two years. The good news is that my golf handicap has stabilized at 78 years old. Doctor Galinat also treated my twin daughters who were high level soccer players. To me these people are specialists who to me operate as family doctors.
The Consummate Professional
I can’t say enough positive things about my experience with Dr. Steven Dellose and the entire DOS team. From the first time I met with him, I knew I wanted him to perform my total hip replacement. During my first consultation he asked me what my expected outcome (activities, sports, etc.) was from the surgery and fully explained what the procedure was going to entail. On surgery day he again fully reviewed what the procedure was going involve. When he visited my room later that day, he provided me with a recap of the surgery and genuinely wanted to make sure I was doing ok and was comfortable. Dr. Dellose will definitely be performing my other complete hip replacement in the coming months.
A Long Active Life
“I recently had my right knee replaced by Dr. Steven Dellose. I also had my left knee replaced in 2008 after many years of being in pain. My knee problems stemmed from my athletics when I began contact sports around 10 years of age until I ended my contact sports around 35 years of age. Prior to having either knee replaced, I received a series of shots in my knees to see if that would ease the pain. Unfortunately, the shots were not effective, and I needed to schedule surgery. It was reassuring to know that Dr. Dellose and his staff were there to guide me through that process. I am very grateful for the care I received from Dr. Steven Dellose, Joseph Cassidy and Christine LaFashia of Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists. The counseling they provided prior to my surgery along with the treatments, surgery, and finally, rehabilitation, has enhanced my life. I am looking forward to a long active life with my wife, children and grandchildren.”
