Biography

James W. Maxey, MD, chose to practice medicine because of his father. His dad was a service manager for a local auto dealer, so he grew up around tools and was fascinated by the idea of helping people fix their problems – but for this motivated young man, he was attracted to the medical field where he could put that same helpful spirit to work repairing people's fractures and injuries.

For the last two decades, he's been doing just that… taking care of patients and educating others worldwide about how to improve patient care. Dr. Maxey is an internationally recognized expert and lecturer on fracture repair and even has the most widely viewed Orthopaedic Internet Live Surgical Procedure.

In addition, Dr. Maxey's surgical lecture and live surgical procedure have been featured on NBC's Law & Order. Television shows such as this strive for authenticity, and in this case, they turned to Dr. Maxey for his expertise. He is well-published and has given hundreds of presentations. He is also a clinical assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria.

This same expertise led Dr. Maxey to France, Germany, and Italy to assist in the development of new technology that is now utilized for hip fracture repair here in the United States. In addition, he has lectured internationally and operated in Medellin, Columbia and Bogota, Columbia.

Dr. Maxey and his wife have two adult children.

While I am confident in his knowledge, I was less than thrilled with his bedside manner. This is our first experience with a broken bone and he seemed offended that I was asking questions.
