Orthopedic Hip Surgeons of NYC is spearheaded by Roy Davidovitch, MD. Dr. Davidovitch received his sub-specialty training in the field of Orthopedic Trauma and Hip and Pelvis Reconstruction at Harvard Medical School. He completed the prestigious NYU Langone Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopaedic Surgery residency program (New York, NY).

Dr. Davidovitch’s reputation precedes him as an excellent and highly skilled surgeon. I am very happy that he did my total hip replacement surgery and equally satisfied with my post-surgical results. ~ Healthgrades
