As an orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist, Dr. Hawkins has committed his professional career to providing the most individualized care experience for his patients. This includes streamlining the office experience for young and old athletes alike, integrating specialized nonoperative treatments into his patients’ care, and adopting cutting edge, outcome driven surgical technologies in the operating room. He also remains committed to giving back to the sports community, and routinely donates his time and expertise outside of the office for sideline coverage and training room management at local high schools and colleges.
He understands that these actions provide the foundation for patient CHOICE in selecting their BEST orthopaedic care.
Dr. Hawkins was a four-year letter winner and captain of the Georgetown University swimming team and uses this experience as a Division I athlete to help his patients overcome their musculoskeletal problems. He understands that their recovery, like success in athletics, requires commitment and dedication both from the coach (surgeon) and the player (patient).
Dr. Hawkins’ practice is focused on the management of athletic injuries with a strong emphasis on shoulder and knee problems. He has performed tens of thousands of arthroscopic procedures over his career and is particularly focused on ACL reconstructions of the knee, rotator cuff repairs of the shoulder, and complex shoulder labral surgery as well. He continues with an active role as a teacher and instructor in these areas for fellow orthopaedic surgeons, athletic trainers, and physician assistants, both locally and nationally. On a personal level, he provides orthopaedic care at the outreach level for athletes at DeSales University, Emmaus High School, and Lehighton High School.
