Patient Testimonials

The Best

Dr Solacoff and the entire staff at Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists are consummate, compassionate professionals. Dr Solacoff did my total knee replacement and I found him to be not only a great surgeon (I barely have a scar) but a great listener. He takes the time to explain things, offer all options available and answer any and all of your questions. After years of chronic knee pain, I’m now able to have pain free mobility and I thank the good doctor and all the staff at DOS for making it happen.
