David P. Roye, Jr, MD, specializes in treating pediatric spinal deformities, including scoliosis, and performing hip surgery on adolescents. A fixture on Castle Connolly's rankings of America's Top Doctors, Dr. Roye has dedicated his career to improving the lives of children both here and abroad.

In 2009, Dr. Roye received the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons' Humanitarian Award, which honors fellows of the academy who have “distinguished themselves by providing outstanding musculoskeletal care, both in the United States and abroad . . . (and) who help to improve the human condition by alleviating suffering and supporting and contributing to the basic human dignity of those in need.” The Children’s Dream Foundation also recognized Dr. Roye for his contributions to children’s healthcare.

Dr. Roye has a special interest in international health and travels annually to educate providers and treat patients in Africa, Eastern Europe, and China. Dr. Roye has taught hundreds of surgeons, instructing them in advanced techniques for treating children with complex musculoskeletal disorders. He has helped Pediatric Orthopedics at Columbia become nationally and internationally recognized for research and clinical excellence. His team publishes in the top peer-reviewed journals and presents innovative medical, technical, and quality-of-life research, guiding the direction of the field and influencing global public policy. 

Dr. Roye’s dedication to teaching and research has led to fellowships in many national and international societies, as well as a multitude of honors and distinctions, including the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation's Order of Merit Award. Dr. Roye has authored hundreds of articles, written textbooks, served on editorial committees for prestigious medical journals, and lectured throughout the world. His passion for providing medical services in developing countries has led him to teach and operate in Kenya, Romania, and China. He serves as medical director of the Children of China Pediatrics Foundation, a non-profit organization that performs surgeries to correct disfiguring birth defects and disabilities among children in China’s orphanages. He also founded International Healthcare Leadership, a non-profit organization that designs and implements educational healthcare management and policy programs in emerging nations.

Dr. Roye is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board for "A Foundation Building Strength." This foundation is dedicated to funding research for Nemaline Myopathy, a congenital neuromuscular disorder that affects motor skills by causing weakness in muscles throughout the body. The Scientific Advisory Board focuses on reviewing grant proposals and provides recommendations to organizations interested in performing research in this specialty.
