Port City Orthopaedics, PLLC

Practice History

Port City Orthopaedics was founded and opened by Dr. Derrick G. Hickey in 2006. We are a specialty orthopaedic surgical practice focusing on treatment of the hand, elbow and shoulder. Dr. Hickey is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon. He is fellowship trained in Hand, Elbow, and Shouder surgery, as well as advanced arthroscopic and microsurgical techniques.

Our practice is a patient-focused care medical office. We believe that the best way to do this is to have as few barriers as possible affecting the doctor patient relationship. As such, we do not utilize physician extenders. Each of your office visits will be with your physician.
