Get to know Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. David Neal Buchalter, who serves patients in Florida.

Dr. Buchalter is a skilled and experienced orthopedic surgeon at South Palm Orthopedics in Delray Beach and Palm Beach County, Florida. He specializes in total hip replacement, direct anterior hip replacement, computer-assisted surgery, total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, and minimally invasive surgery.

“Over the past 30 years, I have witnessed incredible advances in the field of hip and knee replacement surgery. By utilizing a combination of cutting-edge techniques and time-proven components, I am able to give my patients a renewed life, with faster recoveries and outstanding long-term success. There is no greater pleasure than to have someone hobble into my office and then, in just a few weeks, they are pain-free and back on the golf course or tennis court. I want people to realize that these state-of-the-art surgical options are available here at South Palm Orthopedics, even if they have experienced a series of failed surgeries elsewhere” expressed Dr. Buchalter.

Active in the medical community, 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.

A 1983 graduate of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Dr. Buchalter 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.

Licensed to practice medicine in Florida and New Jersey, the doctor is board-certified in orthopedic surgery by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS). To ensure safe, ethical, and effective practice of orthopedic surgery, the ABOS maintains the highest standards for education, practice, and conduct through examination, certification, and maintenance of certification for the benefit of the public.

Having been in practice in South Florida since 1991, Dr. Buchalter is former Chief of Surgery at Delray Medical Center and has been the chairman of numerous hospital-based committees. For six years, he served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Delray Medical Center.

Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

Throughout his extensive career, 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.

On a more personal note, Dr. Buchalter and his family reside in Boca Raton, Florida.
