Dr. Phil Davidson is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in knee and shoulder injuries. Originally from Florida, he is proud to call Utah home for more than a decade. He is a recognized expert in the field of Cartilage Restoration, Joint Resurfacing and Orthobiologics. He has a particular interest in Stem Cell therapies and enhanced healing techniques. He has conducted many research projects and developed an array of products to promote biologic and minimally-invasive healing of shoulder and knee conditions. Many patients travel to Utah to treat with Dr. Davidson, and the practice is designed to help facilitate this care. It is common for many of his patients to have been told that they don’t have any good options for their knee, shoulder or joint condition. Now, incorporating Stem Cell treatment and related therapies, many patients can be treated non-surgically. Dr. Davidson is able to provide comprehensive, holistic care of orthopedic conditions as he offers many biologic therapies, and as needed incorporates an array of additional treatments to help restore function. Dr. Davidson has dedicated more than 20 years to continually increasing the options for these patients affected by knee, shoulder or joint damage. New patients are welcome and seen in both the Park City and Salt Lake City offices.
