Dr. Tuma is at the top of my recommendations to anyone. I previously had breast cancer and went to Dr. Tuma to create symmetry. After the reconstruction, it was found out that I had to have more surgery. I have not been the easiest pt. because of past treatment. I wouldn't have wanted to go through this period of time with any other surgeon. Dr. Tuma has always been positive, supportive and hands on. This has been a very stressful time and Dr. Tuma and his entire staff have been fantastic.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
