Roy I. Davidovitch, MD - Testimonials
If you need an Orthopedic surgeon, ask for Dr. Davidovitch. Accept no substitutes. The best, period.
Dr. Davidovitch is one of the rare doctors who is more interested in doing what is right for the patient than how much money he will get for the procedure. While his minimally invasive process yields him no more money than traditional hip replacement surgery, the recovery period is much faster and easier for the patient! It requires specialized training, a special operating room table, and about 3 times as much time for the procedure. Most doctors would rather choose the "easy" way, but not Dr. Davidovitch. He does not cut the muscles or tendons, but instead artfully moves them to insert the artificial hip. I am barely 7 weeks out from my surgery, and haven't felt this good in 8 years! I know everyone has a doctor they swear by....but when it comes to total hip replacement, he is truly the one!
He was honest kind and caring.
I was initially annoyed by the long wait time but came to realize it was well worth it. This doctor doesnt use PA's or nurse practitioners to provide care. Dr D gives personalized attention to his patients and even gives out his email address so he can be reached for questions. You never feel like you were put through an assembly line which is how I felt when I had surgery at HSS and then never spoke to my surgeon again as only the PA provided the postoperative care. My recovery from my hip replacement by Dr. D was more than twice as fast from the anterior approach (no cane within 2 weeks!!!) which the Dr. is an expert on. He has an excellent bedside manner and appears to be a perfectionist, all the things you want in your surgeon. I highly recommend him without any hesitation!
My initial impression of Dr. Dividivich was that he had an excellent background and a professional, competent manner in his approach.
