He served as chief resident during his final year of training.

Dr. Tucker specializes in all facets of foot and ankle reconstructive surgery, including sports medicine, revision foot and ankle surgery, arthroscopy and treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus, traumatic/fracture surgery, the treatment of lower extremity complications from diabetes, and limb salvage.

Dr. Tucker serves as a consultant for the orthopaedic industry and has lectured nationally at numerous scientific and educational meetings.

Although well versed in all facets of foot and ankle surgical care, Dr. Tucker will only recommend elective surgery when traditional means of conservative care have failed to relieve pain or other debilitating symptoms that interfere with the patient’s daily activities. Dr. Tucker is a strong patient advocate and utilizes the latest evidence-based techniques available to treat foot and ankle problems. He believes strongly in patient education and partnering with his patients to provide the best care possible.
