His clinical focus is on the surgical and non-surgical management of degenerative diseases of the hip and knee, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis. His surgical practice focuses on minimally invasive surgery, hip and knee replacement, partial knee replacement, infection management, treatment of failed hip and knee replacement, pain management, and accelerated recovery following hip and knee surgery.

At his private practice, Dr. Heckmann offers a wide range of treatment options, from non-surgical and minimally invasive techniques to more extensive surgical procedures when necessary. Using state-of-the-art surgical technologies, his services are at the forefront of orthopedic advances. They include Mako robotic joint replacement and Intellijoint Surgical® computer-guided navigation for certain knee and hip replacement surgeries.

Taking a holistic approach to patient care, he works to treat the whole person, rather than merely focusing on a specific area of pain. At all times, he aims to find the solution that offers the least pain and the swiftest recovery. All patients receive a comprehensive care program tailored to their specific needs, and he works closely with them to monitor and assess their healing process each step of the way.

Specializing in joint replacement of the hip and knee, he is affiliated with Keck Hospital of USC, USC Norris Cancer Hospital, and USC Verdugo Hills Hospital. He also serves as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California.

Subsequent to his education, the doctor attained board certification in orthopedic surgery through the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS). The ABOS is an organization with the goal of establishing educational and professional standards for orthopedic residents and surgeons as well as evaluating the qualifications and competence of orthopedic surgeons.

Attributing his success to being able to help his patients every day, Dr. Heckmann is an active member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgery, the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons, and the Western Orthopedic Association.
