Originally from Baton Rouge, LA Dr. Delarosa completed medical school and orthopedic training at LSUHSC New Orleans. He then further specialized in Hand and Microsurgery at OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, NC under the direction of Dr. Glenn Gaston. In addition to the full spectrum of routine upper extremity problems, a significant portion of his fellowship training concentrated on brachial plexus and complex peripheral nerve injuries. Additionally, he traveled to Florianopolis, Brazil to study under Dr. Jayme Bertelli, an expert in peripheral nerve injuries, brachial plexus injuries, and tendon transfers. He is also interested in improving function of upper extremity amputees through Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) and the use of a myoelectric prosthesis. Through his work in congenital, brachial plexus, and amputee specialty clinics he has gained a wealth of knowledge on the multidisciplinary approach to patient care. Working at COC offered the opportunity to work amongst an amazing peer group of dedicated orthopaedic surgeons that strive for nothing but the best for their patients.
Outside of work Dr. Delarosa is an avid golfer and hiker as well as a fan of Texas, LSU and New Orleans Saints football. Most of his time off is spent with his wife, Ali, and their two children.
