James Davidson, MD
When I was a kid, I liked to take broken bikes apart, fix them and put them back together. My father was a doctor and I always wanted to follow in his footsteps.
I grew up in Phoenix and went to college at Yale University in Connecticut and medical school at Columbia University in New York. I came back to Arizona to do my residency and fellowship and practice orthopedics. I was attracted to this specialty because orthopedic surgeons can help injured people get better, back to their sports, jobs and active lifestyles. I enjoy the innovation and technology that is central to orthopedics.
I was fortunate in my sports medicine fellowship to become active with the Arthroscopy Association of North America as an instructor for their national courses. I have continued to help teach these courses to other orthopedic surgeons allowing me to participate in the latest advances in the field. My practice has developed over the past twenty years. I am now the orthopedic consultant and side line doctor for numerous high schools in the area. I am the Spring Training orthopedist for the Chicago White Sox. I enjoy teaching medical and physician assistant students from Midwestern University and University of Arizona’s Phoenix Campus.
I look forward to coming to work every day whether in the office or the operating room, whether working with professional athletes or weekend warriors. My career goal remains the same as the day I started, to provide the best in orthopedics to all of my patients.
