The Tree of Andry -
Symbol of Orthopaedics
since the early 1700’s


The word Orthopaedia was originally used to mean the art of correcting and preventing deformities in children.

The analogy of the crooked tree tied to a strong post reflects the basis of our specialty: to correct deformities.

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Johns Hopkins would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Department Director, James R. Ficke, M.D.

Prior to joining Johns Hopkins, Dr. Ficke was Chairman, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation at Brooke Army Medical Center, and Orthopaedic Consultant to the Army Surgeon General.  He managed many of the lower extremity trauma patients, amputees, and complex foot and ankle patients returning from the combat zone.

He graduated from the United States Military Academy; earned his MD at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences; and completed orthopaedic residency at Tripler, Hawaii.  He completed subspecialty training as an AO Trauma Fellow in Munich, Germany, and Foot and Ankle Fellow at Baylor in Dallas, Texas.  He ran the Brooke Amputee Service for 6 years before deploying to Iraq.

Dr. Ficke served as Chief Medical Officer for a Combat Support Hospital in Mosul, Iraq in 2005. He recently retired as an Army Colonel after 30 years of military service. He is Board Certified in orthopaedics, and is a member of the American Orthopaedic Association, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Orthopaedic Trauma Association, and the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society.  He currently serves on the Leadership Development Committee of the American Orthopaedic Association, and the Central Program Committee for the AAOS.

The entire department joins in welcoming Dr. Ficke as the 9th Director of our historic department.
