Dr. Rick Ogilvie obtained his medical degree from the University of Western Ontario. He then went on to the University of Ottawa where he completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery. Following this, Dr. Ogilvie completed two fellowships: one in sports medicine at Ottawa with Dr. D.H. Johnson, and the other as a senior registrar in Adelaide, South Australia doing reconstructive orthopaedics.
Dr. Ogilvie has been practicing in Hamilton since 1985. His practice is mainly focused on sports and pediatric injuries and he takes great care of athletes of all ages. Dr. Ogilvie is currently a clinical associate professor of surgery at McMaster University and he was the past head of orthopaedics service at Hamilton Health Sciences. Dr. Ogilvie’s main contribution to the university for the past 27 years has been educating students, residents and fellows. In his teachings, Dr. Ogilvie tries to stimulate students to think of the what and why behind what they are learning, as well as teach them the “art of orthopaedics” that is slowly disappearing with the advancement of new technology.
