As an orthopedic surgeon, he enjoys the technical aspects of his profession, but thrives on the rewards he receives from interacting with his patients. “I gain the greatest satisfaction from helping people return to their regular activities and improving their quality of life. It's very rewarding to allow them to do the things they enjoy.”

Dr. Devinney earned his bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville and his doctor of osteopathic medicine from the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth. At Tampa General Hospital in Tampa, Florida, he completed an orthopedic trauma fellowship and a shoulder and elbow fellowship.

He has the best bedside manner and it is obvious that he really cares about his paitents! I am so glad I found him.

He very quickly had my husband under a MRI machine when he suspected a rare form of cancer. We saw him on Friday, had the MRI later that day, and he had us with an oncology orthopedic surgeon the following Monday. He called us after the MRI to inform us of the findings and was very supportive through my husbands surgery and aftercare period. Great surgeon! He performed our sons leg surgery after a fall down the stairs andhe recovered without problems.

Dr. Devinney recently did my hip replacement, after being in pain for 2 years I feel like a new person! Dr. Devinney was wonderful and his team was so helpful. I strongly recommend them to anyone who is needing any kind of replacement, don't put it off anymore. Do it now and feel better now! Thank You Dr. Devinney you have given me my life back! I can only rate 5 stars but i would rate this a 10+ *************************
