Medical Expertise

Fracture Surgery, Trauma, Pelvic Fractures, Hip Problems/Surgery, Hip Arthroscopy, Anterior hip replacement, Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement

Clinical Responsibilities

Dr. Davidovitch received his subspecialty training in the field of Orthopaedic Trauma and Hip and Pelvis Reconstruction at the Harvard Medical School. His clinical interests include (but are not limited to) the young adult with hip arthritis, prevention of hip arthritis, acetabulum fractures, pelvis fractures, hip fracture non-unions, avascular necrosis of the hip, and femoral-acetabular impingement. Dr. Davidovitch is one of a handful of surgeons on the east coast and the first surgeon in New York City (NYC) to perform the minimally invasive (MIS) Anterior Hip Replacement. The Anterior Hip Replacement is truly a minimally invasive approach to the hip since tendons or muscles are not cut during the procedure. The Anterior Total Hip Replacement requires a specially designed surgical table (OSI Hana Table) now available at the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases. Dr. Davidovitch also serves as the Director of the New York Hip Center which focuses on care of the young adult with hip pain. Hip preservation surgical procedures are performed for candidates with prearthritic conditions (Labral tear, femoral acetabular impingement,hip dysplasia, etc.). Minimally invasive anterior approach total hips replacements are offered to patients with advanced arthritis of the hip. The goal of the anterior approach total hip procedure is to return patients to their normal functional level in an accelerated fashion. Potential patients are invited to contact Dr. Davidovitch directly via email with any relevant questions at: Roy.Davidovitch@nyumc.org
