Patient Comments (2)

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.
I aim to deliver the highest quality patient care. I appreciate you taking the time to write this review and value hearing about positive experiences. Thank you for sharing your feedback with me!
