Dr. Hicken has a passion for orthopaedic surgery and helping others. His favorite part of his job is meeting and helping patients with their musculoskeletal problems. He is currently the only surgeon in Cache Valley who treats early hip problems with arthroscopic techniques. Dr. Hicken is always researching ways to improve his patients’ experience and has even pioneered a multimodal approach to pain control after a surgery that minimizes the need for narcotics. Dr. Hicken is actively involved in his community and has founded a non-profit organization to help fund children’s athletic teams so that children from all economic situations can be involved in sports. In his spare time, he can be found tele-skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, or spending time with his wife and family of five children and soon to be eleven grandchildren.
