Dr. DiLella went on to earn his medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He then completed a rotating internship and residency in Orthopedic Surgery at Midwestern University/Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. His residency training included specialty rotations with highly renowned surgeons at the University of Chicago Hospitals and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. During his residency training, Dr. DiLella was selected for an AO Trauma Fellowship. This program allowed him to train with accomplished orthopedic surgeons at the Spital Davos in Davos, Switzerland.
