After having practiced orthopaedic surgery with a specialty in hip and knee replacements since 1978, I have retired from surgical practice. My plan is to continue to see patients as a non-operative surgeon and use that experience to provide advice to patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis or who have previous hip or knee replacements. For patients who might benefit from surgery, I can help guide that decision and refer them to my colleagues in joint reconstruction here at NorthShore.

Orthopaedic Joint Care
Dr Wixson is superb - the knee replacement he did for me is coming along fine and looks like will last a long time. And he is wonderful to talk to - takes all the time necessary to explain what is needed and makes me feel very reassured that I have him in my corner. Thanks, Dr W.
unpleasant experience which I previously described
Have been seeing Dr. Wixon over 20 yrs. He is great, every step of the way
*Dr. Wixon is the BEST!
Dr Wixson has been my orthopedic surgeon for years and I have complete confidence in his care for me
*Dr. Wixson has always looked out for my best interests and is always forward looking. He demonstrated that today as well. Although he does not do the surgery now he continues to think forward to my health.
*DR. RICHARD WIXSOM was an excellent care taker; informative, patient, kind, humorous (gently so).
*Dr. Wixson's concern for the well being of his patient is very evident. His explanation of my concern was very clear, as well as, what I should do to promote the healing of my hip.
