Mark Adickes MD
Dr. Mark Adickes was raised all over the world as the son of an Army chaplain. He attended high school in Berlin and Munich Germany and graduated from Killeen high school in central Texas where his father was stationed at Fort Hood. Dr. Adickes excelled in sports and received a football scholorship to attend Baylor University. At Baylor he appeared in three bowl games and in his senior year was the team captain and honored as a first team All-American. He received a BBA in management and marketing upon his graduation from Baylor.
Football was career number one for Dr. Adickes after being drafted in the first round by both the NFL and the USFL. He played 2 years with the LA Express in the USFL protecting quarterback Steve Young followed by four seasons with Kansas City Chiefs and three more with the Washington Redskins. His professional football career culminated with a Super Bowl Championship with the Washington Redskins.
Numerous injuries, surgeries and rehabilitations led to the conception of Dr. Adickes’ second career choice. He attended George Mason University in northern Virginia to complete his pre-med studies and was accepted to Harvard Medical School. Dr. Adickes medical school experience was enhanced by his selection to deliver the commencment address at graduation. He then attended orthopedic surgery residency at the world famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Upon completion of residency he was honored by being offered a fellowship position at the renowned Stedman Hawkins Clinic in Vail, CO. His fellowship included extensive training in the treatment of knee and shoulder injuries with a special emphasis on the arthroscopic treatment of hip impingement, labral tears, cartilage injuries and other pathology surrounding the hip.
Dr. Adickes has chosen to focus his practice on the arthroscopic treatment of hip, knee and shoulder injuries. His unique concentration on the arthroscopic treatment of hip pathology is driven by a desire to one day prevent or significantly retard the progression the of hip arthritis. As director of the University of Texas Hip Preservation Center he regularly addresses hip injuries with the arthroscope through two tiny incisions. Hip impingement (FAI = Femoroacetabular Impingement), labral tears, snapping hip and other muscle injuries surrounding the hip joint can now all be addressed through the scope.
Dr. Adickes’ ultimate goal as a physician is to heal and he approaches every patient with a curious mind and a dogged determination to achieve that goal. He often tells his patients, “I will treat your problem as if it were my own or that of a family member.” When seeking treatment for an injury one cannot ask for more.
