Dr. Pickett earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Mo., and completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Millcreek Community Hospital in Erie, Pa.
"We are excited about the addition of Dr. Pickett joining our medical team. His training and experience in general orthopedics with specialization in hand surgery adds another facet to the treatment options offered at Fitzgibbon Hospital and Marshall Orthopedic and Sports Medicine. As we continue to focus on quality of care and access to care, orthopedics and sports medicine continues to be an emphasis for us. Dr. Pickett is an outstanding addition to Dr. Kelly Ross, Dr. Richard White, Physician Assistant Miles Romney and Nurse Practitioner Carrie Lucas at Marshall Orthopedics and Sports Medicine," said Darin Haug, D.O., President and CEO of Fitzgibbon Hospital.
“I’m really excited to have a hand specialist working with us,” said Ross. “As a fellowship-trained hand surgeon, I think he’ll bring another added dimension to Marshall Orthopedics.
