We are excited to have Dr. Jaffe join our practice in September!
Dr. David E. Jaffe joins Arizona Bone & Joint Specialists as a Foot and Ankle Specialist.
Dr. Jaffe received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biological Sciences with a Minor in Mathematical Sciences from the University of Delaware. After completing his undergraduate degree, Dr. Jaffe received his Doctorate of Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD.
Following medical school, Dr. Jaffe joined the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Maryland/R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where he completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery. He had the honor of being elected Administrative Chief Resident during this time.
After completing the residency program in July 2016, Dr. Jaffe continued his training by completing a foot and ankle fellowship program at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX.
Dr. Jaffe’s fellowship director, Dr. James Brodsky, has greatly influenced his development as both a surgeon and a doctor. Dr. Brodsky’s appreciation for details during surgery, his thorough physical examinations, and his individualized treatment plans are very inspiring to Dr. Jaffe.
To Dr. Jaffe, there is nothing more satisfying than having a positive impact on an individual's life, and being a doctor provides so many opportunities to do just that. Orthopaedic surgery, especially foot and ankle, provides Dr. Jaffe with the privilege to help patients and get them moving again and as active as possible. Foot and ankle surgery provides Dr. Jaffe the ability to treat a large variety of patients of all age groups and backgrounds for conditions ranging from bunions and hammertoes to total ankle replacement and complex reconstruction.
Dr. Jaffe is an active member of the medical community as an active member in both the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons. His clinical and scientific research has been published in several peer-reviewed journals and he continues with a research interest in functional outcomes after foot and ankle surgery. When Dr. Jaffe is not working, he enjoys hiking, white-water rafting, music, sports, and spending time with his wife, dog, and cat.
