Orthopedic Surgeon Joins OU Physicians

Wednesday, December 23, 2015 - Campus News -

Lindsay E. Hickerson, M.D., a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, has established her practice with OU Physicians. She has also been named an assistant professor in the department of Orthopedics at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.

Hickerson is board eligible in orthopedic surgery. She specializes in direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty, a muscle-sparing technique allowing the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the side or back approach.

Hickerson completed an orthopedic trauma fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery, New York City. She completed her orthopedic surgery residency and earned her medical degree at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond.

Hickerson is a member of the Orthopedic Trauma Association, AO Trauma Foundation and American Academy Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Hickerson sees patients at the OU Physicians building, 825 N.E 10th Street, Oklahoma City. For an appointment with an OU Physicians orthopedic surgeon, call (405) 271-2663.

With more than 660 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
