Joint Replacement

Board Eligible in Orthopedic Surgery

Blue Ridge Region

South Asheville

Dr. Benjamin Davis grew up nearby in the Tri-cities area of east Tennessee. He completed his undergraduate training at Tennessee Tech University where he played D-1 football and met his future wife and local dermatologist, Dr. Jessika Davis. He received his medical degree at the University of Alabama at Birmingham before continuing his training in an orthopaedic residency at Loyola University in Chicago where there was a high volume of hip and knee replacement surgery. Orthopaedic training in a large city afforded many opportunities to gain experience with a wide variety of different orthopaedic problems. Lastly, his training was completed at Southern Joint Replacement Institute in Nashville, TN where he gained extensive experience in complex problems related to hip and knee joints encompassing robotic replacement, revisions, infections, and fractures. Having had his own experiences with injuries playing college sports, Dr. Davis understands the frustration of having a painful joint hold you back from being as active as you want to be. The opportunity to help be a part of giving patients this part of their lift back through joint replacements is what he loves most about this field of medicine.

Ben and his wife Jessika are excited to be returning closer to their roots to serve the Western North Carolina community. They enjoy football, camping, hiking, and biking. Ben enjoys taking on various woodworking projects in his spare time.
