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 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.

“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 lifestyle back. The athletes whom I care for vary from high-school and collegiate athletes to weekend warriors to seniors looking to stay active.”

“While it may be intimidating to visit a surgeon’s office, most knee and shoulder pain can be resolved with non-operative treatment and guidance. For those 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,” Dr. Stucken explains.

“My goal is that patients choose my practice in Boca Raton for their surgical care, knowing that I am guided by the belief in providing the most exceptional care, without exception.”
