In Dec 2019 Dr Tankersley replaces my right knee. My recovery has been great! Scaring is minimal. At my 2 week check-up my leg straightened, and bent to 125 degrees. He was thorough with my exams before and after, pleasant while still being professional.

Dr. Tankersley performed a knee replacement and a hip replacement on me, plus removal of a hematoma. He has done a great job on the surgeries. Plus he is gracious and kind. He's reassuring, but he also has a sense of humor which is a great quality in a doctor's bedside manner. I would recommend him highly. If I have my other knee replaced, he is the surgeon I will use. The nurses and receptionists at Optim are also friendly and helpful. -Karen DeLoach

I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Tangersly. I’m sure the enjections that he discussed with me will definitely be what I need for my hip. Looking forward to my next visit. Thanks Dr. Tangersly.

Dr Tankersley performed my bilateral THR on May 1, 2017. His diagnosis and surgical skill has changed my life. At 3 months post-op, I am happy healthy and we'll on my way to a healthy recovery and happy life. The anguish from end-stage OS had me desperate and destitute. As shocked as I was to have Dr. Tankersley recommend total hip replacement, as I am only 53 years old, I am so glad that I had this surgery now before I became totally incompacitated.
