Dr. Charlton Stucken is a double board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine surgery. Dr. Stucken trained with world-renowned surgeons in prestigious programs in Boston and Philadelphia and has provided care to high school, collegiate and professional athletes. Most of his procedures are performed arthroscopically, allowing faster recovery with minimal downtime. He performs more than 400 cases yearly, evenly split between knee and shoulder surgeries, and is the Chief of Staff at Bethesda Hospital.
Q. Do you perform corrective surgery?
A. Yes. Many of my patients have already experienced failed surgery elsewhere and are often reluctant to undergo a corrective revision procedure, but these are some of my best outcomes: taking people who are at their worst and giving them their life and active lifestyle back.
Q. Do you offer alternatives to invasive knee and shoulder surgery?
A. Most knee and shoulder pain can be r esolved with non-operative treatment and guidance. For patients that do need surgery, our newer techniques such as computer navigation allow faster recovery with minimally invasive surgery. The same personalized and innovative treatments that we use on our professional athletes I also recommend for the rest of my patients.
Q. What should patients expect during a consultation?
A. We are offering the latest advances in arthroscopic and computer-navigated surgery. Most knee and shoulder is sues do not require surgery, but when they do you want to ensure that you are receiving the best and most up-to-date care. My mission is to provide the most exceptional care, without exception.
