Biography

Rikesh K. Patel, DO, is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in total joint replacement and complex reconstruction of the adult hip and knee. His special interests include minimally invasive direct superior total hip replacement, muscle-sparing subvastus total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, complex primary joint replacement for post-traumatic and congenital deformities, and revision surgery for mechanical and infectious complications of total hip and knee replacement. Dr. Patel’s interests also include general orthopedic conditions, among them the operative and non-operative treatment of fractures and trauma, musculoskeletal infections, and other bone and joint conditions.

Dr. Patel graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He went on to complete a post-baccalaureate at Georgetown University with a focus in Physiology. He then earned his doctorate from Midwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Patel completed his orthopedic surgery residency training at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. He then traveled to Scottsdale, Arizona to do a fellowship in adult reconstructive orthopedic surgery with a strong focus on outpatient joint replacement, complex revision arthroplasty, minimally invasive joint replacement procedures and robotic-assisted total joint arthroplasty.

A member of multiple national and international medical societies, Dr. Patel serves on committees for the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) and the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics (AOAO). He is also a reviewer for publication submissions to the Journal of Arthroplasty.

A native of Chicago, Dr. Patel decided to make Cleveland his home after spending the greater part of his professional training in northeast Ohio. He is passionate about working with patients of all ages with the common goal of getting them back on their feet and towards a healthy and active lifestyle. When he is not working, Dr. Patel enjoys road biking, snowboarding, perfecting homemade pizzas and spending time with his family.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
