Anterior hip replacement surgery is one of the most common procedures performed by the NYC board certified orthopedic hip surgeon. Anterior hip replacement is a contemporary surgical approach for total hip replacement.
I had hip replacement on 4/23/14 by Dr. Roy Davidovitch using the anterior approach. I was walking without a cane by day 10. I am female, 66 years old and was in good physical shape before having my hip replaced due to bone on bone. It is 2 months now and I am doing absolutely amazing. I felt others should know about this doctor as I did my research looking for newer technology. They also use the Hana Table at NYU which adds to the successful outcome. Like every busy doctor the time spent with the doctor is quality time which is what counts. His PA Constance was very helpful. NYU Hospital was also very efficient with setting up and following through after surgery. I was also very apprehensive about having foreign parts in my body but, now I am not aware of there presence. I know everyone is different but, I hope this helps other patients in making a decision. I am very happy with the results. ~ RateMDs

The hip can be approached from anterior (front), lateral (side) or posterior (back) directions. Anterior hip replacement surgery is most contemporary approach for a hip replacement.
- Minimally invasive, muscle and nerve sparing approach that yields a faster early recovery for the patient.

I knew for a few years that I would need a hip replacement but never pursued it for many reasons. I did not want to go into a rehab facility was number one. The procedure was done and I was home and walking stairs in less then 12 hours. I had no pain, was standing straight, and No limp. The way he performs the hip surgery is not like any other from what I’m told. Dr Davidovitch is straight forward about his care and follows up at every stage of rehab. I would highly recommend him. ~ Healthgrades
