Dr. David Holst specializes in hip and knee replacement. He loves the technical challenges and problem-solving essence of orthopedics. In particular, hip and knee reconstruction surgeries are some of the most rewarding interventions in the entire field, and can vastly improve the quality of life of many patients. That consideration along with the systematic and technically precise nature of hip and knee surgeries is what initially drew him to the sub-specialty. Additionally, he is interested in the care of patients with failed or otherwise problematic joint replacements and performing revision surgery. Solving these problems can be especially challenging, but also particularly rewarding when successful. In his free time, he enjoys watching basketball, exercising, SCUBA diving, reading, and spending time with his wife and children, especially hiking with them.
