Dr. Jeffrey 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.
Dr. Davis 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.

I had been diagnosed with degenerative joint disease of the left hip back in 2006. I believe it all started with a snow skiing accident in the early 1980's. I was told at the time of diagnosis that when it got to where the pain was sufficient, I would most likely need a hip replacement. For about 15 years I just lived with the pain and the limited range of motion issues. I was thinking the longer I can endure…

At 54-years-old I could no longer walk without the aid of a walker. Additionally, I couldn’t sleep because of my hip pain. It was also affecting my job and I was embarrassing by my quality of life! Then BOOM the pandemic also hit!

I am a 55-year-old female that has been active for most all my life; softball and volleyball in my 20’s and 30’s and tennis for the last 25 years. Two years ago, my right hip started giving me issues. I went through physical therapy and injections, but it just got progressively worse until I could no longer play tennis, nor really walk or sleep without pain.

First, let me say Dr. Jeffrey Davis is amazing! A great surgeon and Christian. I tripped over a hose pipe and tore my meniscus and I also had a stress fracture in my knee. I was about to have surgery but I had other problems with my esophagus so I had to put off knee surgery. After walking on my knee for a year after my injury, it became bone on bone and Dr. Jeffrey Davis said there wasn't even a meniscus left anymore. This caused so much pain so I had to have it fixed.

I am an old fellow that loves to run. I’ve been a recreational runner since my early 20's; however, a broken pelvis/hip 23 years ago gradually became a severe, post-traumatic arthritis of my hip. My 5K run times got longer and longer – my running stride became a hobble – walking became limping and painful.
