Meet The Doctor
Dr. David A. Femovich
Dr. David A. Femovich holds himself and his staff to the highest medical and ethical standards, expecting and accepting only the very best. He incorporates his own innovative techniques and uses the knowledge of new technology obtained through extensive education, both abroad and domestically. You can find no better patient care and technique then right here in Northwestern Pennsylvania.
Dr. Femovich has been referred to as having a “delicate touch” with great insight in proper soft tissue treatment, thereby enabling faster patient recovery with minimal tissue trauma. His ‘stickler for details’ mentality, non-compromising wound care techniques, along with his personal integrity has earned him the reputation among hospital staff, employees and patients as the man with “good hands”. This, along with his insistence of superior patient care, spearheaded his investment in the healthcare system. He helped to design, build and facilitate the Surgery & Laser Center. This state-of-the-art facility is designed with patient comfort, safety and satisfaction in mind. Dr Femovich has patients who routinely travel long distances to benefit from his artistic surgical sculpturing…some traveling from as far away as the east coast and Hollywood, California.
Having his humble beginnings in the Pittsburgh area, Dr. David Femovich was able to achieve his life's goal to become an accomplished surgeon through the help of a full-ride scholarship in Biology at Villanova University. He achieved this degree while maintaining a starting football player position at the Division 1A university and earning such honors and awards as being twice named Academic All American and Academic All Western Athletic Conference.
Dr. Femovich continued his medical education by graduating from the University of Pittsburgh Medical School with his Medical Doctorate in 1986. He then completed a five year residency in General Surgery at West Virginia University School of Medicine and completed his surgical training in Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery in the residency program at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1993. Dr. Femovich has extensive experience in research and has written award-winning papers in the forefront of plastic surgical innovations. He has lectured around the country and has held offices in nationally renowned plastic surgery societies, as well as having been published in medical journals.
Dr. Femovich has met and surpassed all practice examinations and ethical standards of excellence from the most respected board in the plastic surgery field. He has been board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery since 1993 with many continuing educational hours. He is currently a professional member of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American College of Surgeons, the Northeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Robert H. Ivy Society, the American Medical Association, the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and the Pittsburgh Plastic Surgery Society.
After several years in private practice in New Orleans, Dr. Femovich returned to the state of his birth in order to be near his parents in their later years. He has built a superior private practice that has withstood the economic rigors of these past 15 years through both the dedication to patient care and the love of the surgical craft.
