Daveed D. Frazier, M.D. is president of Orthopaedic Associates of New York, PC a group he joined in 1997. He is on staff at both St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital and Long Island College Hospital. He serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Columbia University and an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor at Downstate where he teaches medical students and residents and has won many Teacher of the Year Awards.

As a busy spine surgeon Dr. Frazier splits his time between Manhattan, Brooklyn and 2 independent surgery centers that he has been instrumental in developing to promote outpatient, minimally invasive spine surgery. He's currently partnering with 30 of the top minimally invasive spine surgeons in the world to develop an international spine surgery center in Cypress focusing on medical tourism.

Prior to coming to New York, Dr. Frazier did two spinal surgery fellowships. The first one was at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and a second spinal deformity fellowship was at Doctor's Hospital, also in Miami. During a sabbatical between his residency and fellowships Dr. Frazier moved to New Mexico where he worked on a Navajo Indian reservation as a general orthopaedic surgeon. He continues this type of altruistic work today where he sits on the board of a number of charities including the Arthritis Foundation, Cheetah Foundation and Film Aid where he travels and raises money for refugee camps around the world.

Dr. Frazier earned a degree in biology from Brown University and graduated with honors from Harvard Medical School. During medical school, he was involved in orthopaedic research and was instrumental in developing a patent for biodegradable bone cement. Between 1989 and 1990, Dr. Frazier received a fellowship and trained with the father of orthopaedic surgery, Dr. Maurice Mueller, in Bern, Switzerland. Returning to Harvard, he did a Harvard Surgical Internship at the New England Deaconess Hospital followed by the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency. After his residency, he was selected to be a chief resident at the Massachusetts General Hospital where he was in charge of orthopaedic trauma surgery.

Author of a number of peered reviewed articles and book chapters, Dr. Frazier actively lectures both locally and internationally. He is a member of a number of professional organizations including the Society of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, North American Spine Society, Society of Lateral Access Surgery, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery, New York Society of Orthopedic Surgeons, New York Medical Society, National Medical Association, and the Arthritis Foundation.

Born in Jeffersonville, Indiana and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Dr. Frazier is an avid athlete and loves to travel. While his practice focuses on minimally invasive spinal procedures and adult degenerative conditions, his interest include cervical spinal pathology, pediatric scoliosis and emerging spinal technology. Consistent with being a consummate overachiever and perfectionist, Dr. Frazier has produced several Broadway shows.
