Dr. David Mayman is one of a handful of national experts in computer navigation in hip and knee replacement surgery. He performs over 400 computer-navigated joint replacement surgeries a year. “I believe that in the future all joint replacement will be done with better tools," he says. "Computer guides give more consistent alignment, with no bigger incision.”
Dr. Mayman studied human kinesiology in his native Canada, and trained in orthopedic sports medicine as well as joint-replacement surgery. His typical patient is an active 40-60 year old with an arthritic or pre-arthritic condition of the hip or knee, who wants to get back to previous activities - not just walk around the block. Whatever the patient’s age, Dr. Mayman is concerned with getting people back to their lives through minimally invasive surgery.

One of the goals of Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is to advance the science of orthopedic surgery, rheumatology, and related disciplines for the benefit of patients. Physicians at HSS may collaborate with outside companies for education, research and medical advances. HSS supports this collaboration in order to foster medical breakthroughs; however HSS also believes that these collaborations must be disclosed.
As part of the disclosure process, this website lists physician collaborations with outside companies if payments were received during the prior year, or if the HSS physician currently receives payment. The disclosures are provided by information provided by the physician and other sources and are updated regularly. Further information may be available on individual company websites.
Below are the healthcare industry relationships reported by Dr. Mayman as of April 01, 2014.
By disclosing the collaborations of HSS physicians with industry on this website, HSS and its physicians make this information available to their patients and the public, thus creating a transparent environment for those who are interested in this information. Further, HSS’ Conflicts of Interest Policy does not permit physicians to collect royalties on products developed by him/her that are used on patients at HSS.
Patients should feel free to ask their HSS physicians questions about these relationships.

Dr. Mayman has been researching the development and advancement of computer navigation techniques for hip and knee surgery since his residency and has continued working as a consultant in the design of computer navigation tools.
He won the coveted William Ersil award three times for Best Paper in Orthopedics, focusing on research primarily concerned with computer-assisted surgery. He is currently researching the long-term outcome of computer-assisted surgery to that of conventionally-guided surgery and is also working on protocols for maintaining the balance of ligaments in joints with a Hospital for Special Surgery fellow.
