Joint Pain (Ankle, Elbow, Knee, Shoulder, Wrist)

Watch me chop onions now! Remember Dr Dellon when i had 4 years of not being able to use my wrist after my injury? X-rays were always normal, but your nerve blocks relieved my pain, and 6 months ago you removed the damaged nerves from my wrist joints. Look at m go now. NO MORE WRIST PAIN. Thank you so much. PE

Here I am doing competitive swimming. The surgery you did on my knee joint pain 3 years ago saved me. I know want to become a doctor and maybe learn to do there nerve surgery or orthopedic surgery to help others with knee pain. Thank you so much. LL


Dr Dellon holds basketball in center with the Women’s Basketball Team from Emmanuel College from Boston. Their coach, Andrew Yosinoff, to the far left, is also a tennis player, able to play again after Dr. Dellon denervated his right elbow, to relieve his lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow). 

It is 23 years since Dr. Dellon denervated my right shoulder. It is great now. I can lift a heavy weight over my head and do everything I want to do. Thank you Dr. Dellon

During our boat cruise in Austria and Germany, I stopped to cycle each day. It is 2 years since you denervated my painful ankle, Dr Dellon, and I can cycle for hours now without pain. Here I am in the city of Melk, Austria, on the Danube river. And the wine is great too! GM

Look at my shoulder work now Dr. Dellon. I know you remember it was paralyzed. You rebuilt the damaged nerve. Look at me go!! A.

Look at me climbing steps with my wife! I am 86 years old. They wanted to replace both my knee joints. My son “the doctor” told me about your operation to denervate my knees and relieve my pain. And you did it Dr. Dellon. Eight weeks ago. Thanks. DS

“Look at me run!!” When you operated on me 5 months ago I was completely disabled. Previous surgery included 14 operations. Both knees in pain since childhood. Left leg was getting paralyzed. I am in rehab, and it is going great. No more knee pain and my left quads are regaining bulk. Thanks so much Dr. Dellon. DS

Hello Dr. Dellon. It is two years since you operated on my knee and common peroneal nerve. My formally weak and painful knee/leg now is doing quite well. Here I am hiking and climbing. Thank you so much. L




I was unable to use my left hand after I fell and broke my wrist two years ago. I am just 16 now. I developed CRPS and the pain prevented me from doing anything. Here is a movie my Dad took of me after your surgery just 6 weeks ago. You denervated my wrist and decompressed one pinched nerve. I can now move my thumb and wrist. And here are some photos of me cooking again. Thank you Dr. Dellon.

Ten years since my left knee was denervated and nine years since my right knee was denervated. I hope you remember doing my surgery in Dubai. Sports injuries were my problem. Wanted to show you how great your surgery had done for me. Here I am receiving a tennis medal from a tournament in Dubai, and below are my son and I skiing in Austria. Thanks again Dr. Dellon. DL

Good Morning Doctor Dellon
I injured my knee during my work as a Police Sergeant, and as a Coach ands a Soccer Trainer for a team of young boy. Also I had a bike accident, Orthopedic surgery could not help the immense pain that remained in my knee. Then your student, Doctor Andreas Gohritz operated on me at the University Hospital in Basle, Switzerland. It was a denervation Surgery.
Since then i’m to 99 % pain-free and i’m able to move freely my knee. I’m also able to knee down.
For recovering my quality of life i‘m very grateful, especially to Doctor Andreas Gohritz.

For you Doctor Lee Dellon i’m also very grateful for your medical innovations, your research and your teaching.

Sincerely, Brigitta Fumagalli-Benz Brigitta



Police work & soccer playing ruined left knee. Dr A. Gohritz did “Dellon-ation,” a knee denervation. Now I am wonderful (wundebar) again.


I am doing well, 3 months since you denervated my knee. I continue to progress with minimal pain and 0 narcotics. Still working through my ability to stand for longer than 2+ hours without pain. Although at this point this is a significant improvement over the 45 minute pain point prior to surgery. I am also still swimming twice weekly so all things considered I am quite happy and most certainly very active. K

After 15 months in wheel chair with RSD (CRPS) due to snowboarding injury to left knee, your knee denervation surgery returned my life. Here I am kayaking alone and tubing. My knee works. My skin does not hurt anymore.

I wanted to send you an update on the current status of knees 6 months after the last surgery some slight discomfort around the incision sites (which has been improving over time), I'm left virtually with no pain. When I was returning from the last of my four university exams last week, it suddenly struck me what an incredible difference you have made to my life. Only 5 years ago I was unable to sit on a chair for more than 30min without extreme discomfort. Now I have just sat through four three hour exams without feeling any pain at all. This means the world to me and I am looking forward to taking advantage of all the opportunities that have opened up. Having been a very sporty person, I can now return to activities that I have loved in the past.

You made the impossible possible, my dreams come true. I remain forever grateful. Kind regards, Felicity

No more knee pain. Even though my knee was totally replaced three years ago by Orthopedic Surgeon, knee pain still kept me disabled. Here I am in Hawaii. Biking, whale watching and no more knee pain. One year ago Dr Dellon you denervated my knee. Thank you so much, and my husband Stan thanks you too.

Can walk around the square in Santa Fe now my knee hurts no longer. The knee replacement did not do it. Still hurt. You did it Dr Dellon. MLC

I remained disabled two years ago after my total knee replacement. It is now one year since your partial knee denervation surgery. The sharp pains in my right knee have greatly subsided, and the knee feels the best it has (and likely ever will) since the original knee replacement. For that, we are so grateful for your skill. There is still an achiness and overall sense of a tired right knee if I tour or shop or walk too long—but this is quite different than the sharp, stabbing pains prior to your surgery and more manageable. I just prop the knee up and rest it until I go again. We walk in the square in Santa Fe. I am able to ride the stationary bike 45 minutes, three times a week. Life is good! It’s cold here in Santa Fe but very festive this time of year with farolitas and fires and holiday music. We wish you the merriest of holidays and thank you so much for your care and personal interest! MLC

Hi Dr. Dellon,

Brian threw 10 pitches with no problem. He rested 10 minutes and threw another 10 pitches with no problem. Distance was 45'. I thought his motion looked great and effortless. You are seeing his first pitch. Video had to be shortened for email. He was in uniform as he had a game today but don't get alarmed, Brian did not play despite his wanting too. We lost 5-2 i think was the final. I will email tomorrow if he has any soreness appear.

Thanks and have a great day!

I was Dr. Hungerford's patient and had a knee replacement in Nov. 1993 and you fixed the pain in both knees about a year after that. I lived in Northern Virginia and came to him at Good Samaritan Hospital and you operated on me at Children's Hospital, if memory serves me. The knees are still good after 19 years and the nerve removal is still good after 18 years. Everybody asked why I would travel so far to see you . I guess the quality and the longevity of the procedures speaks for itself. Great doctors produce great results.

I am having fun again riding my bike with my friends and daughter thanks to you Dr Dellon. At age 84, and having my knee replaced twice but being left with severe pain, I had given up on life. Now 3 months after you removed those painful nerves from my knee, I enjoy my life again. Thanks so much. John, Pa.

Knee pain of neural origin. After the Orthopedic Surgeon has done all he can, consider seeing Dr Dellon to learn if your pain is related to a nerve.  Click Here for full chapter.



Playing a round of gold with his daughter and his son, the golfer in the center has remained free of knee pain now ten years since his bilateral knee denervation surgery by A. Lee Dellon, MD. Prior to Dr Dellon's surgery, both knees had been replaced but he had been left with considerable residual pain, which now is completely gone.



Daughters say it is a miracle that, after ten years, father has no more knee pain. Knee joint had been replaced three times. After Dr Dellon removed the nerves to the joint, the pain is finally gone.



I am back at work now without the knee pain that bothered me for so many years. Your knee denervation and neurolysis of the common peroneal nerve  and its branches was just what the "Nurse ordered". Thank you Doctor Dellon.  Carole RN



Thank you Drs Shar Hashemi and John Bouillon from the Dellon Institute in Dubai. Since your operation on the painful nerves at my elbow, I now have increased strength, less pain, and here you can see me lifting my new son and holding him with my previously disabled right arm while I play with all three of our children. In therapy I am doing arm curls, now up to 8.8 pounds, the most I have done in 5 years. You have made a big difference in my life and I am very thankful for you. For the gift of holding my son, I am extraordinarily grateful. Thanks for doing what you do.I really appreciate you and your great care of me. God bless, Dave

Dr. Peled of the Dellon Institutes,

This is a letter I feel is most necessary to thank you for my knee surgeries and the difference they have made in my life. What a miracle this has been for me; my quality of life has been totally improved. These are just a few of the ways in which my life has changed:
• Today, I am able to join to my family and friends to go shopping, buy groceries, and cook meals without having to quit as I could not stand long enough to finish what I had started.
• I could not stand to get goods, pots and pans, and clothes that were located in the lower drawers. My knees were in such pain when trying to reach any of these items.

Before this wonderful surgery, my pain was unbearable. All this came about when I had replacements of both knees. Having fibromyalgia, some of the nerve endings would not heal and this resulted in a great deal of pain for me. If I tried to get into any of the above-mentioned postures and with any changes in the weather, what it would do to me is almost unbelievable. Now, I can do all these moves without any pain at all!

The surgery itself was not painful. I only felt soreness around the stitches. I was able to get up and walk within an hour after waking up from surgery.

Thank you, Dr. Peled.

Knee Pain


Kate McGrath, Wilmington, MA May 20, 2006

Dear Doctor Hung and Doctor Dellon,

After six years of constant, never-ending pain, several knee surgeries, pain blocks, a multitude of braces, crutches, hundreds of hours of physical therapy, TENS Units, and pain subscriptions of all types, my diagnosis of RSD (Reflexive Sympathetic Dystrophy) remained untreated. I went to many doctors at different hospitals and they all did the same thing, epidural pain blocks, medicines, pain patches, and TENS Units that never helped. I felt hopeless because no one had a solution for me and all I wanted was to live a pain free day. Then I had the great fortune of being referred to your office by my physical therapist that heard about other miracles that you have performed.

Now, a short three months after the knee denervation surgery, my knee is amazing! I forgot how it felt to not have pain every second of the day, but now I can go through a day of school and sports and not have that distraction. It is a phenomenal feeling! I am running two miles a day at lacrosse and more during the weekend. I was able to walk all around Europe and actually enjoy it because there was nothing slowing me down. I am captain of my high school lacrosse team and I can be less distracted and more aggressive as goalie in varsity field hockey. I am also very excited that sports can again be part of my college search. It is such a relief to play my sports pain free now, to be able to do normal kid things, and most importantly, to have that obstacle of dealing with the pain out of my life.

This would have never been possible without your extraordinary work and intelligence in this field of medicine. You two are my true heroes for finally making my life more enjoyable and pain-free. There is nothing I could every say or do to show you my gratitude.

Thank-You so much,

Kate McGrath
Wilmington, MA
