Dr. Tucker uses the new anterior approach for hip replacement surgery which has less trauma and shorter recovery time. He also prescribes physical therapy for 4 weeks PRIOR to surgery to strengthen the muscles around the surgery joint, and over the counter supplements including iron, vitamin C and multipurpose vitamin which all contribute to higher success rate for surgery and recovery. Result: I was walking unassisted within 7 days, outpatient PT at 14 days and back to work day 20!!!

I really like Dr. Tucker. He has a great bedside manner and is very good at what he does. The staff are nice at the front desk but are super busy. The Tech that does preliminary questions and X-ray Tech are super nice. I wouldn't go to anyone else personally.
