A second opinion can bring peace of mind and help you better understand your diagnosis and your full range of surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
I would need Hemingway to describe how thankful I am to have had Roy Davidovitch, orthopedic surgeon. I had a left total hip replacement and my life has changed from hardly being able to walk and having intense pain everyday to feeling amazing and fit again. Top notch and seamless care from the day I had my consult to my 3 month check up. I could not have been in better hands and got my life back. The doctor and his team arm you with all the information you need to get through this. It will take strength, determination time and support @ home post op. Just do this and choose Dr. Davidovitch and his team. ~ Google
If possible please have your images sent to our practice prior to your consultation or bring them with you (MRI, CTs, etc). We will review your test results to ensure that they have been correctly interpreted, before running any additional tests (if necessary) that are needed to comprehensively understand your case. We will also talk to you about your symptoms, diagnosis and the treatment options in order to ensure that you are getting the best possible care.
Although most people feel that their doctor or surgeon has planned the best surgical or non-surgical treatment for them, some people may want a second opinion.
Why Seek A 2nd Opinion

- You may be unsure if you need surgery
- You may not be happy with the recommended treatment plan for your hip condition
- You are simply unhappy with your current care
