Meet Dr. Armando Davila
Dr. Davila is a fellowship trained, bilingual plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, breast, and body.
Born and raised in Orlando, Florida, he attended the University of Florida, graduating Summa Cum Laude in Biological Engineering. He then completed his medical studies at the prestigious Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, where he spent a year as a dedicated research fellow to Dr. John YS Kim, a nationally recognized leader in plastic surgery. This time propelled Dr. Davila to the forefront of his peers, as he authored several landmark publications in the early use of acellular dermal matrices for breast reconstruction, now a standard practice for plastic surgeons around the globe.
Afterwards, he continued his training in sunny California, at Loma Linda University Health. Located in the only “Blue Zone” in the United States, the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery was the first ever Integrated Plastic Surgery Training Program in the country, providing its residents with years more hands on experience in plastic surgery than traditional models. Ever pursuing more knowledge, Dr. Davila was then accepted to the Inaugural Fellowship in Complex Breast, Microsurgical, and Robotic Reconstruction at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Medicine. Here he trained with Dr. Richard Baynosa, a pioneer in Minimally Invasive Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, learning cutting edge robotic and microsurgical techniques.
Following in the footsteps of Dr. Hurwitz, Dr. Davila has remained an avid researcher, authoring over two dozen scientific publications and academic presentations over his decade in training. This has provided Dr Davila with a comprehensive understanding of the diverse techniques available to plastic surgeons to solve even the most difficult of aesthetic or reconstructive concerns.
Dr. Davila is now thrilled to join Dr. Hurwitz to further expand his surgical armamentarium as he explores the senior surgeon’s innovative techniques and technology in order to carry on, and advance surgery at the Hurwitz Center. His unique experience is a welcome addition to extend the care of increasing number of patients who select the Hurwitz Center. Our patients will enjoy the warmth and enthusiasm of a bright and highly motivated young surgeon.
Dr. Davila is accompanied by his wife, Dr. Allison Davila, celebrating over a decade together as both surgical colleagues and partners. Also a life long learner, she has started her Cardiac Surgery Fellowship at UPMC, but together they still find time enjoy theater, skiing, scuba diving, and their dog, Louie. These two highly sought-after, gifted surgeons are delighted with their selection of Pittsburgh to practice their special crafts for many years, and Dr. Davila looks forward to providing cutting edge and personalized care to all his patients.
