Dr. Richard Ricketts has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

  • General Surgery

    A surgical specialist is a physician who has additional training in a specific area of surgery.
    The American Board of Medical Specialties acknowledges the following surgical specialties: general surgery, thoracic and cardiac surgery, colon and rectal surgery, obstetrics and gynecological surgery, neurological surgery, ophthalmic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngological surgery, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, urological surgery, and vascular surgery.
    Some procedures are performed by more than one type of specialist. Also, some surgeons may choose to specialize in specific procedures within their specialty area. For example, a plastic and maxillofacial surgeon may specialize in performing rhinoplasty procedures.

Dr. Ricketts

23 years ago Dr. Ricketts saved my life and now at 30 years old I am here to tell all about it. My parents tell me that Dr. Ricketts was unsure if I would live after sustaining serious injuries from a car wreck. He opted to try a new procedure, with my parents permission of course, and it saved my life. I live a full and normal life thanks to Dr. Ricketts. I am married with a beautiful little boy and live my life like any other "normal" person would!

Dr. Ricketts is an amazing doctor. He did pectus repair surgery on my son, and the results were excellent. This surgery is very painful and he let us know what to expect every step of the way! My son is extremely happy with the results and we are so happy we used Dr. Ricketts!
