Aaron Daluiski, M.D.

Hand and Upper Extremity Surgeon
Pediatric Hand Surgeon

Dr. Aaron Daluiski grew up on the West Coast of United States. Although he is a New Yorker now, his patients opine that he has a very relaxed, easy going style, which could be attributed to his roots!

Dr. Daluiski went to college and medical school at UCLA, where he was lucky to have learned and trained from many of the best minds in medicine. In 2000, he was chosen to be a Hand Fellow at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. This is where he practices today, alongside the most prestigious and skilled orthopedic surgeons and rheumatologists in the world.

At HSS, in addition to treating patients, Dr. Daluiski is actively involved in the teaching of fellows and conducting his own research. His work has been published in numerous academic journals. His current research focuses on fracture healing. Through research, he and his team are trying to learn more about why fractures heal the way they do, and what can be done to help them heal stronger and faster.

Dr. Daluiski believes that one of the great aspects about working at a place like HSS is that patients can receive all the special attention they need in a private practice environment, yet be on the cutting edge of research developments and the future education of doctors. Dr. Daluiski has learned a lot from his teachers and mentors, and wishes to give back.

No matter what his research and teaching interests are, his primary focus is on taking care of people. Dr. Daluiski sees patients in his office three days a week and operates one to two days a week, depending on the needs of the patients.
