Specialty in Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction
Dr. Alexander Gaukhman MD is a Board-Eligible Orthopaedic Surgeon who is fellowship-trained in Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction. His practice focuses specifically on conditions of the hip and knee in the adult population with a particular interest in complex primary and revision surgery.
Dr. Gaukhman, a first-generation American, immigrated to the United States with his family at the age of 6 and grew up in North Florida. He earned his medical degree from Florida State University College of Medicine, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Boston University, known as one of New England’s busiest trauma hospitals, under the auspices of Drs. Paul Tornetta III and Thomas Einhorn.
He trained and cared for patients at Boston University Medical Center, Beth Israel Lahey Health Clinic, Massachusetts General Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital for Children and the Boston VA. During his residency, Dr. Gaukhman was nominated into the American Orthopedic Association, an honor bestowed on the top one or two residents within each program in the United States.
Following training in Boston, Dr. Gaukhman was accepted to the prestigious adult reconstructive surgery fellowship at the Insall Scott Kelly (ISK) & NYU Langone Medical Center/Hospital for Joint Disease, one of the only two orthopedic surgery specialty hospitals in the country. There, he had the opportunity to further refine his skills under some of the first pioneers in joint replacement surgery and adopt skills in robotic and computer-navigated surgery.
Although training in the Northeast provided Dr. Gaukhman with the knowledge and experience needed to provide excellent care to patients, he always knew he would return to Florida to begin his practice as a specialist in hip and knee reconstruction.
Dr. Gaukhman’s goal is to provide the highest level of care to patients with degenerative diseases of the hips and knee, including rheumatoid arthritis, developmental hip dysplasia, avascular necrosis, and post-traumatic arthritis.
