BOCA RATON, FL – October 19, 2020 – Orthopedic surgeon Alexander D. Gaukhman, M.D., M.S., joins BocaCare
| Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, a part of Baptist Health South Florida.
Dr. Gaukhman specializes in total joint replacement surgery.
“We would like to welcome Dr. Gaukhman to BocaCare,” says orthopedic
surgeon Justin M. Weatherall, M.D. “His extensive residency and
fellowship training in the latest orthopedic surgery techniques will make
him an excellent addition to our team.”
Dr. Gaukhman joins BocaCare from the NYU Langone Medical Center/Hospital
for Joint Diseases and the Insall Scott Kelly (ISK) Institute, where he
completed his adult reconstruction fellowship.
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
