During medical school, Dr. Rickert had the opportunity to shadow several orthopedic surgeons in clinic. He saw how happy the patients were with their outcomes, which inspired him to choose a specialty in orthopedics.

As an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Rickert specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries and disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles.
