David N. Buchalter, MD

Dr. David N. Buchalter is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who trained at the Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City, one of the largest and most prestigious orthopedic training hospitals in the United States. After completion of his residency, he did specialized fellowship training in joint replacement surgery, sports medicine, and trauma surgery. He spent time studying throughout Europe and was involved in some of the early research on cartilage transplant and cartilage regeneration procedures.

Dr. Buchalter has performed well over 3,000 total hip and total knee replacements and is a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. Less than 5% of orthopedic surgeons in the country are members of this society, which includes physicians who specialize in total hip replacements and total knee replacements. He is one of the few surgeons performing less invasive hip and knee replacement surgeries, allowing for a small three- to four-inch incision, less pain, and faster recovery time. He performs the direct anterior approach for total hip replacement using the Hana Table at both Delray Medical Center and Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
