A 4th generation Houstonian, Dr. David Doherty graduated from McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), where he was a member of the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.  During his residency in orthopedic surgery at McGovern Medical School, he was selected to represent the program at the American Orthopedic Association Emerging Leaders Program, and served as administrative chief resident. He completed an elective mini-fellowship in Sydney, Australia, observing the techniques of osseointegration surgery prior to completing a fellowship in adult reconstruction surgery at Duke University School of Medicine in North Carolina.

Dr. Doherty specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery and performs partial and total joint arthroplasty. His clinical interests include both primary and revision hip and knee replacement. He uses customized treatment plans featuring anterior and posterior approaches to the hip, muscle-sparing approaches to the knee, and the most advanced technology, including robotic-assisted surgery, to optimize patient outcomes.

An assistant professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at McGovern Medical School, Dr. Doherty continues to have his research published in scientific textbooks and national peer-reviewed journals. A member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS), he is a frequent presenter at national meetings.

Dr. Doherty recently offered his surgical services on medical missions to Baghdad, Iraq, and San Salvador, El Salvador.

He loves spending time at Houston’s many parks, museums and restaurants with his wife, Amy, and their three children.
