Had really bad arthritis in my right knee. 2 other surgeons would not operate on my knee until I was 50. Even though I couldn't walk and my Orthopedic doctor recommended that I do get surgery because physical therapy and steroid injections would do nothing to make my knee better. Luckily someone told me about Dr. Hickman and I made an appointment to go see him. After seeing my xrays he immediately scheduled an operation. After my operation my knee already felt better. Two weeks after I'm able to walk with support of a walker. I think in other 3-4 weeks I'll be able to walk again without any devices. Something I haven't done in 2 years. He totally changed my life. He is a great surgeon and a great guy. If you ever need someone to look at your knee, I strongly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Hickman and your entire staff, you guys are the greatest.
Coming to Dr. Hickman was the smartest thing I could have done for this troubled knee. Being the third replacement on my right knee at how well it went. He and his staff are so great. I have recovered surprisingly wonderful. Thanks to all of you.
I have had both knees replaced by Dr. Hickman. I have always felt he cared & I was getting the best care. My second knee replacement was a much easier recovery with the changes they made to the surgery process. The office staff are friendly and his assistants seem to be very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Hickman and will always go back to him.
I am now the proud owner of two "Hickman" knees. Although this is a tough surgery to go through, I know I found the best surgeon for the task. Dr. Hickman has a staff that work together seamlessly for the best results possible, everyone was kind, caring and very professional! I would highly recommend Dr. Hickman!!!
My experience with Dr Hickman and his staff was extraordinary. Both of my knees felt perfect and solid right after surgery. I have been able to walk without assistance about 3 weeks after surgery. My first total knee replacement went so smoothly, I was anxious to have my other knee done. While my second knee was more painful, (no two knees are alike) it is solid to walk on and has improved rapidly just like the first one. I was treated with kindness and respect before during and after surgery by Dr Hickman and his staff. I was well informed and prepared for surgery.
I had both of my knees replaced in 2011 so I could ride my bike, go hiking, and run a marathon . I accomplished everything and am still enjoying my life immensely. Dr. Hickman is a fabulous doctor and a wonderful man. I would recommend him highly!!
I had a hip replacement in January performed by Dr. Hickman and my recovery has gone so well. I don't think that I even had to slow down much. The pain was minimal. He is an excellent doctor and those who work with him are tremendous as well. I have recommended him to many of my friends and family.
Dr. Hickman did an excellent job with my two total knee replacements, 8 weeks apart. Thank you for my new pain free life!
Dr. Hickman is a very personable physician. He listens to his patients. He takes great efforts in refining his pre and post op care, so that the patient has the best experience possible. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have total knee surgery.
My first experience w/Dr. Hickman was in 2009. I was so impressed by his gentle, professionalism and awesome bed side manner, when another knee replacement was in my future, I knew who I was going to return to. He has a great welcoming smile. His Bountiful Office Staff are so pleasant and they truley make something that could be scary Not so. I highly recommend Dr. Hickman.
