Scott A. Tucker, MD
I joined Jefferson Orthopedic in 2020. I am a fellowship-trained Sports Medicine Orthopedic Surgeon, having completed specialized training with one of the pioneers of Sports Medicine, Dr. James Andrews. I treat all orthopedic injuries, with a special interest in sports injuries and degenerative conditions of the shoulder, elbow, and knee.
I grew up in Old Saybrook, Connecticut and went to the Taft School and then Colby College in Maine. I spent two years working as a research assistant at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston. After getting married, my wife and I moved to New Orleans where I attended Tulane Medical School and completed my orthopedic surgery residency at Tulane, followed by an orthopedic sports medicine fellowship at The Andrews Institute with world-renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews, one of the premier surgeons for professional and collegiate athletes. I worked side-by-side with Dr. Andrews and focused on mastering arthroscopic techniques involving all types of shoulder, elbow, knee and ankle injuries, including Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction.
