Dr. Lucas Richie is an American Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, originally from Dayton, Ohio.  He graduated cum laude from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.  He then went onto complete his medical education at University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Upon completing his graduate degree, he completed a five-year orthopedic surgery residency training program with Michigan State University/Western Michigan University and spent the last year as Chief Resident.  He was then fortunate to return home and complete an orthopedic sports medicine fellowship with Beacon Orthopedics where he was able to pursue his passion for orthopedic sports medicine. This specialty training gave Dr. Richie the ability to work with athletes of all ages and activity levels ranging from a state champion high school football team to the Cincinnati Reds of Major League Baseball.

Dr. Richie works as a general orthopedist with multiple locations around the Nashville area in order to best serve his patients.  He takes great pride in helping patients return to the activities they love.  He sees and treats all orthopedic conditions from traumatic injuries and fractures to back pain, hand conditions, foot and ankle, and sports medicine, and even including MAKO robotic assisted joint replacements.  He has a special interest in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgical procedures of the shoulder and knee with cartilage and joint preservation/restoration.  Dr. Richie also serves as the official team physician for Mount Juliet High School and enjoys being a part of the community and the excellent athletic programs.

In his life outside the clinic and the OR, he enjoys being with his wife Kristina and 2-year old son, Parker and they are currently expecting another child.  The Richie’s enjoy traveling and being outdoors, hiking, boating and sporting events.


The simple fact that patients come to me and put their faith and trust in my hands is truly an honor.  This is a great distinction that I take extremely seriously.  In an effort to respect a patient’s trust I offer each and every patient advice and recommendations based on their individual situation.  No two patients, and no two problems are alike.  The reason that people come to see an orthopaedic surgeon is when they cannot do what they need and love to in life.  In my eyes, I offer treatments for patients as if they were my family.  If I would not offer a certain treatment to my wife, mother, father, then I certainly will not be offering it to my patients who have implicitly put their faith in me.
