We offer both the direct anterior total hip replacement surgery approach (a contemporary minimally invasive technique) as well as the traditional lateral total hip replacement method. Total hip replacement surgery relieves pain, improves and restores motion, and allows patients to safely return to daily activities. More than 300,000 total hip replacements are performed each year.
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 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.~ RateMDs
I am 34 and recently received a Total Hip Replacement by Dr. DAVIDOVITCH. He’s truly an amazing doctor and he stood by every word and promise. I am grateful and lucky to have him as a doctor. I thank him and God for giving him the brains to perform the surgery. I have returned to my daily activities including running around my 2 year old son. I whole heartedly recommend him as a surgeon. He’s caring, frank, and most importantly a great listener.~ Google
Dr. Davidovitch is an extremely skilled surgeon in total hip replacement. He does the anterior approach which allows minimal pain & speedy recovery. I have had both hips replaced 3 1/2 years apart. With each surgery I walked without a cane after a few hours. I was pain free in one week. I cannot praise him enough for the results. Thank you Dr. Davidovitch. ~ Vitals
