Dr. Davidovitch was the first surgeon in New York City to perform the minimally invasive Anterior Approach Total Hip Replacement (also known as Direct Anterior Total Hip Replacement) and has since successfully performed over 5,000 of these procedures, many of them on an outpatient basis. The goal of the anterior approach total hip replacement is to improve on the short term recovery of total hip replacement by making it less painful and less cumbersome as well as allow for a near normal functional level in an accelerated fashion.

Utilizing his vast experience in anterior approach total hip replacement, Dr. Davidovitch co-designed the RotexTable for total hip replacement which has now become his preferred table in most surgical procedures involving the hip. The innovative RotexTable is the only fully automated orthopaedic table and is fully controlled by the operating surgeon without the need for an outside assistant.
Among other clinical and academic responsibilities, Dr. Davidovitch has established the outpatient joint replacement program at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital which has surpassed 1,000 outpatient joint replacements with excellent results. Through innovative surgical techniques and advanced opiate sparing protocols along with close cooperation with anesthesia and nursing, patients are recovering nicely in their own homes the day of surgery. You can read more about Dr. Davidovitch’s innovative outpatient hip replacement program in this article from the Wall Street Journal.
Dr. Davidovitch also focuses on the care of the Young Adult and Athletes with Hip Pain. As such, Dr. Davidovitch performs a variety of specialized hip preserving surgical procedures such as Hip Arthroscopy (for the treatment of Labrum tears and Femoral Acetabular Impingement), Pelvic Osteotomy (PAO or Ganz Osteotomy) for the treatment of hip dysplasia, treatment of Avascular Necrosis of the Hip, and repair of tendon injuries around the hip (i.e. gluteus medius, hamstring, rectus Femoris).
As a fellowship-trained Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon, Dr. Davidovitch gained extensive experience in the treatment of complex Pelvic and Acetabulum Fractures, repair of Non-Unions of Hip Fractures and treatment of complex Hip and Femur Fractures. Dr. Davidovitch has a particular interest in the treatment of the young adult with a hip fracture. Direct hospital transfers to the NYU Langone’s Hospital for Joint Diseases for treatment of the above injuries are accepted in most cases pending insurance clearance and surgeon availability.
