Dr. R. David Heekin, Florida’s top orthopedic surgeon, will appear on Channel 4’s “This Week in Jacksonville” on Sunday, March 15. Heekin visited the WJXT studios this afternoon where he sat down with host and reporter Kent Justice. The two local figures discussed Heekin’s passion for and dedication to the treatment of arthritis through joint replacement, as well as the research side of his practice.
Earlier this year, the north Florida doctor opened the new Heekin Clinic, a facility that specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery. Heekin left his original practice of fourteen years to refocus his work back onto the needs and experiences of his patients. The new clinic is located on the campus of St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Riverside.
“This Week in Jacksonville” airs Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. on WJXT Channel 4 (Comcast: channel 3 locally; AT&T, DirectTV and DISH: channel 4 locally).
