Get to know Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Dolfi Herscovici, Jr., who serves patients throughout the State of Florida.

Dr. Herscovici Jr. provides orthopaedic health care services covering simple to complex problems at The Center for Bone & Joint Disease. He operates out of the offices in Hudson, Brooksville, Homosassa, and Lutz, Florida.

As a result of his training and fellowships, his practice includes injuries, problems, and diseases of the foot and ankle. These can range from the simple care of bunions, hammer toes or painful feet to those who present with more complex problems such as diabetics, patients with severe arthritis, fractures and dislocations of the foot and ankle, those with congenital abnormalities, including polio, cerebral palsy and clubfeet, patients presenting with disabilities as a result of tendon, ligament or nerve problems, infections involving the foot and ankle, or those who have developed problems as a result of prior injuries to the foot or ankle.

In addition, his training and experience in the care of trauma patients and those with post-traumatic complications allow him not only to care for patients who have sustained a recent injury but also to treat patients who have failed to heal properly. This also includes those who have developed infections or arthritis due to their injuries along with patients who have developed deformities as a result of their accidents. Dr. Herscovici Jr. hopes that by providing treatment not often available, he may help to improve the quality of care patients receive when they present with their orthopaedic problems.

Academically, Dr. Herscovici Jr. graduated from the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Missouri in 1983 and was selected for a one-year rotating internship at Detroit Osteopathic Hospital, through the Michigan State University program. Upon completion, he entered a four-year orthopaedic residency, again through Michigan State University, at Mt. Clemens General Hospital, outside of Detroit, Michigan.

Toward the end of his residency, he spent two months at the prestigious Harborview Trauma Center in Seattle, Washington, and was then selected for a six –month trauma and trauma reconstruction AO-fellowship, in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. Upon his return, he was then accepted and completed a one-year trauma fellowship at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

After completion of this one-year trauma fellowship in 1991, Dr. Herscovici Jr. moved to Tampa where he joined Florida Orthopaedic Institute, where he has continued to manage patients with severe injuries at Tampa General Hospital. He has continued to participate in research, with almost 80 articles and chapters written about the care and advancement of trauma, as well as articles in prestigious orthopaedic journals, dealing with injuries to the foot and ankle. In addition, he is a nationally recognized lecturer in the care of the foot and ankle and particularly enjoys training young doctors in the care of these patients. 

During this time, his continued interest in problems dealing with the foot and ankle has resulted in greater numbers of referrals for these problems. To maintain a high level of care for these patients, Dr. Herscovici Jr. completed a three-month foot and ankle fellowship in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was fortunate to be accepted and trained under G. James Sammarco, MD, one of the world’s leading authorities on diseases of the foot and ankle. 

Recognized for his research and dedication to teaching, Dr. Herscovici Jr. was awarded the prestigious Martin Allgower Trauma fellowship, spending two months teaching at the Carl Gustav Carus Medical University in Dresden, Germany. Although he continues to enjoy managing patients with trauma and problems relating to trauma, with his advanced training now completed, he feels that he will now be able to offer patients, who present with diseases of the foot and ankle, better solutions for the management of their difficult problems.

His hospital affiliations include: Bayonet Point, Oak Hill Hospital, and St. Joseph’s Hospital North.

A Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (FAAOS), Dr. Herscovici Jr. is board-certified in orthopaedic surgery by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (AOBOS). The AOBOS is an organization that provides board certification to qualified Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine who specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system. 

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