First State Orthopaedics is the home of Delaware’s first and second Black adult orthopaedic surgeons.
It is truly and honor and privilege to be an orthopaedic surgeon. The practice of Orthopaedics has evolved over time as a highly specialized, technical and sought-after practice. Talented medical students, most often the tops of their classes, aspire to become orthopaedic surgeons and match into 5 or 6 year residency programs geared to make them the next generation of surgeons charged with taking care of the bones of joints of the young and old alike. It is a highly competitive field and we draw from “the best of the best.”
