Dr. Tomas Nemickas provides care for conditions such as rotator cuff tears, shoulder instability and tears of the labrum, meniscus, anterior cruciate ligament and posterior cruciate ligament. In most cases, he is able to offer arthroscopy or other minimally invasive procedures, which increase patient comfort and speed recovery times. These procedures also include total hip arthroplasty and anterior total hip replacement. Dr. Nemickas also has expertise in computer-assisted minimally invasive knee replacement surgery. In addition, he offers Carticel implants, autologous cultured chondrocyte and DeNovo cartilage implants and injections with platelet-rich plasma. Dr. Nemickas grew up in a medical family – his father and uncle were cardiologists, and his mother and aunt were nurses. Watching them help patients get well and seeing the patients’ gratitude inspired him to become a physician himself.

In providing care, Dr. Nemickas combines his knowledge of the latest proven technology and treatments with empathy gained from his own experience being treated for a severe ankle fracture in college. His patients are always treated individually, customizing their treatment plan to address their personal as well as medical needs.

I strive to maintain excellence in all aspects of my care, which allows me to provide the best possible experience and treatment for my patients."
