Dr. Stryker is an incredible doctor. Very knowledgeable, very kind and empathetic. He clearly explained the issue I'm having with my knee and told me about possible treatment options. He listened intently, spent plenty of time to ensure I understood his recommendations and asked me to reach out to him "anytime" by phone or email if I needed additional assistance or wanted to schedule physical therapy. I have been to quite a few doctors during my lifetime but I was imminently impressed with Dr. Stryker. So thankful he's at UTMB.Feb 17,2017
*Dr. Stryker is an exceptional surgeon & communicator, at least based on my experience with a complex, curving fracture of the hip.Feb 15,2017
*Dr. Stryker knew my pain was not coming from hip replacement but was a back problem.Feb 08,2017
When I apologized for the ER team having called him to work at around 5:00 a.m. to consult about (and then take over) the complex nature of my injury and surgery, Dr. Stryker refused to hear of my apology, saying, "This is what I signed up for. I love doing this!" In my mind this means that during the entire process of my treatment, this team, these doctors, were willing to go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that there in that emergency room I would receive the best, most informed, and most educated level of care available. I could have wound up crippled for life, and instead I was climbing stairs in physical therapy on day 2. My surgeon's report on the degree of healing that had taken place by the day of this follow-up visit was "Fantastic!"Nov 16,2016
