Great doc! I tore my ACL playing basketball last year. He fixed my ACL and meniscus, great rehab. I'm back to sports. Doc promised me that if I got back to running he would do a race with me. We are running a half-marathon together in november. Overall great doc and quality person.

I was referred to Dr. Stucken through my former job to get a second opinion because my primary orthopedist recommended a 2nd opionion and knee surgery. I wish I could find one positive thing to write about this “doctor.” He was unprofessional to the point to where he told me to lose 200 pounds (which would leave me Anorexic) by not eating. (Not eating healthy; Not Eating period.). Shocked, I asked HOW I would go about eating nothing and he mentioned Bariatric surgery (which I’ve already had).

Dr. Stucken did my arthroscopic shoulder surgery and he is amazing! Before surgery my shoulder was dislocating. Now it is stable, back to wakeboarding, surfing, lifting weights... Everyone in the practice was great. Dr. Stucken really wanted to get me back to playing sports again. I feel 100% confident in the doctor. Again, great practice and amazing surgeon.

I had a large tear in my rotator cuff. I had pain in the arm and could not sleep at night. I was referred to Dr. Stucken by a friend. He was able to see me within one week. He spent considerable time with me, explaining my problem and describing the possible treatment options. He was knowledgeable and easy to talk to. After trying physical therapy, medications, and an injection I decided on surgery. It has now been 4 months since surgery, I am doing great. I have no pain and normal strength.

I highly recommend Dr. Stucken! He surgically repaired my bicep tendon in February 2018 after I tore it while playing tennis. He was able to get me into surgery within a week of my injury and I have fully recovered and am back to the gym and playing tennis for over a month. I have no pain and good strength and motion. He and his staff are friendly and compassionate and I would use him again without hesitation. Very happy overall with my experience.

Dr. Stucken is awesome. He replaced my mother's shoulder. She was in the hospital overnight. His excellent team of nurses and therapists met her the day she came home from the hospital. She was out of pain after 1 week. Dr. Stucken is very professional and kept me and the rest of our family very well informed as to her progress. At 6 weeks after surgery she had full motion and NO PAIN. He is a great doctor and we recommend him highly.

My daughter tore her ACL playing soccer. I was referred to the doctor by multiple other parents at our school. He was thorough and comprehensive in his examination and plan. Spent 30+ minutes in the room personally going over the entire surgery and rehab plan. Surgery went well. She is doing very well in therapy and expecting a full recovery. We are very pleased with Dr. Stucken and highly recommend him. Great surgeon. If you tear your ACL in Boca or Delray he is the go-to guy.

I broke my shoulder last year, saw another doctor and the shoulder did not heal correctly. I was luckily referred to Dr. Stucken by a friend. He did a shoulder replacement surgery. The recovery and therapy was much easier than I ever expected. After 4 weeks I had no pain and all of my range of motion. He uses the minimal invasive shoulder technique. I am so happy to have found Dr. Stucken and his team. He is compassionate and thorough. He is cute as well.

I had a dislocating kneecap for a few years after hurting it playing sports. Dr. Stucken did a ligament reconstruction 3 months ago. Surgery went well, I am still doing physical therapy. I am running on a treadmill and back in the gym. Very happy with my care overall. He explained everything and held my hand every step of the way. Nurses in the hospital OR referred me to him; they usually know the best surgeons. He is awesome. Highly recommend.

I am so lucky to have found such a great doctor. I am a golf pro in Delray and I tore my rotator cuff. I heard horror stories from my friends about the surgery and rehab. Dr. Stucken did a great job fixing my rotator cuff with arthroscopic surgery. I had minimal pain. My surgery was in december and now I am back playing and teaching golf in only 4 months! I could not be happier. He is compassionate and patient, certainly a rarity. He guided me through every step of the way. Great doc!

Dr. S has taken care of me for the past 6 years, starting with chronic knee issues and now other parts of my aging body. He is amazing. I would never see anyone else. He is patient and caring and actually takes the time to talk to you. I am so happy to have him as my doctor. He doesn't jump into surgery and explains all of the options very thoroughly. He even called me at home to go over test results.

Dr. Stucken is a rude doctor who, in my opinion seems to be "stuck" on himself. After draining the fluid from my knee/cortisone shot at 9:AM, I was in more pain than I was prior to the procedure by noon. He suggested I have an MRI before coming back to see him 1 week later. I read MRI report and found there was still fluid on my knee. When I informed him of this he suggested very rudely for me to go back to my doctor in NY it's only 3 hours away and he never wanted to see me in his office again.

He did a great job on my shoulder. No pain after rotator cuff surgery. Back playing golf in 4 months. He is a magician. It was the best surgery experience I have ever had. He is the go-to Shoulder Doc in Palm Beach for a reason.
