Why Heekin Clinic?

There are many reasons why patients choose Heekin Clinic for their joint health needs. Here are just a few


For 30 years and counting, the Heekin Clinic has set the standard in orthopedic care for all of Florida.  Whether its minimally invasive surgery or preoperative education, the team at the Heekin Clinic has been setting the standard in joint replacement surgery for decades.   Dr. Rizk is an expert in the most advanced surgical techniques, including robotic hip (anterior approach) and knee replacement  – training under the pioneers of robotic surgery – as well as multimodal pain management to decrease patient pain and discomfort after surgery, leading to faster recovery.  


An independent surgeon rating system found at Propublica.org determined that the Heekin Clinic’s patients fare better than patients treated elsewhere with regard to complications. Because our patients do better, they can look forward to more mobility and less pain in their lives. Learn more at https://projects.propublica.org/surgeons/


The Heekin Institute for Orthopedic Research is dedicated to continuous improvement in the field, and Dr. Rizk is focused on optimizing his patients’ outcomes through superior surgical technique and outstanding follow-up care.

Dr. Heekin replaced my left hip on February 1, 2012. At 69 years young I wanted to be able to continue to work and stay physically active. I have been able to do all of that and more. Thank you…
