Dr Nicholas Bavaro | Orthopedic Hip Surgeon NYC

Nicholas Bavaro, MDDr. Nicholas Bavaro is a board certified orthopedic surgeon who has been in private practice for over 20 years. He specializes exclusively in joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee including advanced robotic and computer navigated joint replacement surgery, anterior hip replacement surgery, partial knee replacement surgery, revision hip and knee reconstruction surgery, as well as state of the art techniques for fracture repair surgery.

Dr. Bavaro works very closely with Dr. Jonathan Glashow to offer the latest treatments to restore your mobility. Whenever possible, repair procedures to rebuild the damage, such as stem cell therapy, PRP, cartilage and ligament repair are used. If the damage is past the point where biologic repair will work, the affected area is replaced with artificial components.

Dr. Bavaro’s philosophy is to promote a patient’s full recovery to return to sport and a full, active lifestyle. He works with physical therapists, coaches, and athletic trainers, to prescribe an integrated approach to rehabilitation. Patients receive an individualized recovery plan designed to get them back to the activities they enjoy. His application of technology to augment the precision of joint replacement surgery is customized to the individual needs of each patient. He uses minimally invasive techniques, so pain and recovery time are greatly reduced. In many cases partial replacement surgery can eliminate pain and restore acitivity level. If, and only if, a hip or knee is completely worn out is a total joint replacement performed.

The fear that a joint replacement will come loose is much less with the latest technology and implants. The key to a long lasting joint replacement is accurate placement. Dr. Bavaro’s use of computer and robotic technology allows for the most precise placement of the new artificial joint. He uses modern joint replacements known for longevity with components that are interchangeable. These interchangeable components are replaced if and when they wear out, usually without having to redo the entire joint replacement. So why limit an entire later lifetime of activity and sports by the fear of your joint replacement wearing out quickly?

Historically, patients were suggested to wait until their pain was unbearable before considering joint replacement. Dr. Bavaro, however, believes that with technological advancements, many patients whose only previous option would have been reduced activities until they were “old enough” for joint replacement surgery, now do not have to look to the future postponing their lives, afraid of their surgery. There are a myriad of options to regain an active lifestyle. If you think you need a joint replacement, Dr. Glashow and Dr. Bavaro will help you decide if you truly need one. If you do, they will get you back on track to your active lifestyle.

For his superior patient care, Dr. Bavaro has been awarded numerous distinctions including Castle Connolly Top Doctors  a major healthcare research company, and Westchester Magazine has featured him in numerous annual Best Doctors issues.

After graduating Stuyvesant High School, Dr. Bavaro completed his undergraduate studies at Columbia University. He received his medical degree and masters degree in Public Health from New York Medical College where he was awarded the school’s Orthopedic Surgery Award. He completed his residency at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt in Orthopedic Surgery and then fellowship training at New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City.
