About / My Philosophy
Dr. Jennifer Tucker is a fellowship-trained and board-certified orthopedic hand and upper extremity surgeon. She completed most of her training at the University of Louisville; however, she completed her fellowship at the University of California - Irvine as well as an additional traveling fellowship in Zurich, Switzerland.
Dr. Tucker believes that hand surgery is the ultimate combination of art and medicine. She trained with the forefathers of hand surgery and quickly learned to respect the complexity and beauty of our hands. Dr. Tucker also spent time learning microvascular techniques and complex shoulder reconstruction, as well as performing biomechanical research. Her exceptional training has provided her with innovative technical skills to provide high-quality care for patients.
Her practice focuses on conditions that affect the hands and upper extremities. We believe optimum outcomes are the result of an integrated health care team. Dr. Tucker will tailor your treatment and maximize your recovery to ensure you feel that your treatment has been a success.
Working with patients that have physical limitations has provided her a foundation of gratitude, and she firmly believes that staying strong physically is integral in staying strong mentally. Physical or occupational therapy is oftentimes critical in restoring or maintaining strength in recovery. Dr. Tucker looks forward to becoming a part of your healthcare team.
