David C. Perry, M.D., was born in Bay Shore, N.Y. He is a graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Mass. He performed his orthopedic surgical residency at Montefiore/Einstein Medical Center in Bronx, N.Y.  Dr. Perry completed additional Fellowship training in orthopedic traumatology at the University of Pennsylvania.  He is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Perry thought medical research would be his career until one day, as a medical student, he set a fractured ankle in the emergency room.  He had found his niche fixing broken bones.  Dr. Perry has been working with Key West Orthopedics since September of 1998.

Dr. Perry is a member of the Southernmost Bocce League. He enjoys riding his motorcycle around Key West and boating with his dog, Daniel.  His favorite activity is spending time with his daughter, Olivia at age 3, who keeps him just as busy as his patients.
