About David M. Bennett, MD

David Bennett, MD, is a board certified orthopedic and spine surgeon at Phoenix Children's, practicing in the East Valley Metro Phoenix area.

Dr. Bennet was drawn to Phoenix Children's by his desire to bring the latest and best orthopedic technology to Arizona, where he was born and raised. As a child, his younger brother's neuromuscular condition required many orthopedic surgeries to enable him to walk. The family had to fly from Phoenix to Utah for those surgeries, and Dr. Bennett was determined to bring that Utah expertise to Arizona. By working first and foremost for the patient and their family, Dr. Bennett is committed to providing the highest level of care and service to every patient he sees.

Dr. Bennett received his medical degree at Howard University College of Medicine in Washington, D.C. Then, he returned home to the University of Arizona to complete a residency in orthopedic surgery. Later, his fellowship in pediatric orthopedic surgery at the University of Utah solidified his interest in working with children.

He served as the administrative chief resident at the University of Arizona. He was voted as a "Top Doc" by Albuquerque Magazine, recognized by his peers for excellence as a pediatric specialist. Currently, he is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, the Western Orthopaedic Association and the Scoliosis Research Society.

Dr. Bennett supplements his busy surgery schedule as an assistant professor of pediatric orthopedic surgery at the University of Arizona. There he researches innovative solutions that increase the overall quality of orthopedic care. The University of New Mexico Orthopaedics Research Journal has published several of his papers on topics including scoliosis, femur care and patella treatments. He has also written three medical textbooks, including the best-selling Fracture Healing in Children: A Review of Pediatric Osseous Modeling and Remodeling.

Formerly an Eagle Scout, Dr. Bennett also became a certified luthier (guitar builder) at age 13. Today, when he's not working, Dr. Bennett enjoys spending time with his family, playing the guitar and 3D printing.
