Board Certification: All Board-Certified and Fellowship-Trained Physicians
Founded in 2001 by Dr. R. David Heekin, Heekin Orthopedic Specialists has established their group as a different kind of orthopedic practice. Unlike some organizations, all of the doctors at Heekin Orthopedic Specialists are fellowship-trained in their area of specialty. ‘Fellowship-trained’ requires a voluntary, additional year of preparation and skill refinement post orthopedic residency to become an expert in a desired area. The group has grown from a standalone, total joint replacement practice to now including the full gamut of orthopedic subspecialties with ten topnotch orthopedic surgeons, a pain management specialist, and a non-operative sports medicine and spine specialist. In June of this year, Heekin Orthopedic welcomed Dr. Aaron Bates, a fellowship-trained sports medicine specialist, and in August, will be welcoming their fourteenth provider, Dr. Jorge Acevedo, a fellowship-trained foot and ankle specialist. In addition to adding two new highly trained specialists, Heekin Orthopedic also opened their fifth location in Clay County. With the growth to fourteen fellowship-trained physicians and five locations, Heekin Orthopedic Specialists continues to show they are dedicated to providing Northeast Florida with the highest quality of orthopedic care.
