Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Hickman.

“Dr. Paul Hickman is a gifted healer and an incredible surgeon. He restored me and gave me back my life! Severe hip damage left me unable to walk. The pain was unbearable. Dr. Hickman and his wonderful staff performed bi-lateral hip surgery in early winter. Thanks to them and all the others, I've recently returned to work. I've actually started a new career in elder care as concierge in an assisted living community. The work is very rewarding and I hope that I am giving back a little bit of the excellent treatment that I received from Vero Orthopedics. I can never thank them enough!!!”

“Dr. Hickman was knowledgeable, experienced and I felt very secure in his care. I had never broken a bone in my body and I'm 66 yrs old. I was very frightened and anxious as I was in a lot of pain coupled with the fact that overnight I lost total ability to drive or do ANY activities of daily living except for walking. Dr Hickman was calm, optimistic and reassuring .”

“I wanted a second opinion about knee surgery from a surgeon this time and Dr Hickman was very open about all the potential possibilities having knee replacement. I appreciate that he wasn't trying to just operate as the only option.”

“Dr. Hickman has been very good at evaluating my recent rotator cuff condition opting for treatment without surgery until absolutely necessary. Dr. Hickman performed rotator cuff surgery on the same left shoulder 10 years ago which was completely successful giving me 10 years of pain free days with full use of my left arm. Now at 75 I would like to avoid further surgery. Following a period of therapy to strengthen shoulder muscles, then further evaluation by Dr. Hickman, I'll make a decision whether to pursue another rotator cuff surgical procedure which if necessary I have every faith that Dr. Hickman can provide me with the best possible outcome.”
