Christopher Hicks, MD, is a board-certified orthopaedist who specializes in non-operative sports medicine and provides comprehensive medical care for athletes and active patients alike. Dr. Hicks diagnoses and treats a wide range of sports related injuries, including concussions, tendonitis and more, and offers his patients conventional and non-conventional treatments designed to reduce or eliminate pain and restore mobility. Additionally, Dr. Hicks is a part of the medical team for the WNBA Chicago Sky.

Before beginning a successful orthopaedic career, Dr. Hicks, a Chicago native, was an athlete in both high school and college, excelling at basketball and track and field. His athletic background gives Dr. Hicks a unique understanding of the challenges an athlete faces when injured, and he is determined to help his patients return to sports at their peak performance.
