BIOGRAPHYDr. Davis was born in Decatur, AL and his family moved to Atlanta when he was 7 years-old. He attended Georgia Tech, playing football for 3 years before a knee injury ended his collegiate athletic career. Following undergraduate graduation, he received an Air Force scholarship for medical school at the Medical College of Georgia. His orthopedic surgical training was performed at the well-known and respected Campbell Clinic in Memphis, TN. Following the completion of his orthopedic residency, Dr. Davis served in the Air Force as an orthopedic surgeon. During his military service, he achieved the rank of Major and received an achievement medal. He came to Birmingham in 1995 to join Dr. Andrews at Alabama Sports Medicine. He has been practicing in Birmingham since that time while treating and operating on thousands of patients.
Dr. Davis has an interest in minimizing exposures for joint replacement and performing procedures limiting bone removal, particularly for younger patients. He has developed the largest hip resurfacing practice and has the most experience of any surgeon in the region, performing more than 500+ hip resurfacing procedures since 2008. The results to date show high levels of satisfaction and patients returning to active lifestyles. The failure rate has been <1% in hip resurfacing over the nine years.
Dr. Davis is one of the first surgeons in Birmingham to utilize Stryker's Mako System, utilizing highly-advanced robotic-arm assisted technology, to personalize total knee, partial knee and total hip replacement procedures to each patient.
Dr. Davis has training in anterior hip approaches, along with limited incision posterior approaches for hip replacements. Both approaches allow quicker recoveries. He also uses MRI specific cutting guides for knee replacement surgery , which expedites surgery, enhances accuracy and minimizes blood loss. He also performs custom, partial knee replacements and shoulder resurfacing with a technology called Arthrosurface. It is used for localized defects in joints which aids in preserving as much of the normal joint and the patient's bone as possible.
Dr. Davis also has vast experience with surgical and non-operative treatment for many orthopaedic conditions including shoulder (rotator cuff, instability, labral tears, arthritis, fractures), elbow (fractures, tendinitis, cubital tunnel, loose bodies), wrist (fractures, carpal tunnel, tendinitis), hip (fractures, arthritis, revision surgery), knee (fractures, arthritis, ligament tears, cartilage tears, OCD lesions, tendon injuries) and ankle (fractures, Achilles tendon). He is a premier surgeon and can treat many problems of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee and ankle arthroscopically.
Dr. Davis and his wife, Sheri have five children. They enjoy traveling and spending time with their family. Most importantly, they cherish their spiritual relationship. He enjoys spending time with their two oldest boys skiing, playing golf, going to the lake and attending football games. He also enjoys time with their younger daughters by taking them horseback riding and providing a special date with dad with each daughter. Dr. Davis previously served as team physician for both Briarwood Christian School and Spain Park High School. Dr. Davis and his wife are members of The Church of the Highlands and love the fellowship their church provides for their family. His faith is very important to him because it is the spiritual guide for his life and practice.
Dr. Davis' practice philosophy is to treat each patient with respect and provide complete attention to every individual. He is diligent with providing the patient information to assist them with making an informed decision while understanding the treatment chosen with associated potential risks. Dr. Davis is conservative with treatment options and tailors the treatment plan to each patient.
