My left hip and knee had been very painful for over two years before I met Dr. Toman. Previously, I had seen two other orthopedic doctors in Pt. Charlotte who could not figure out what was wrong with my hip/knee. In addition, I was told that my weight and my age(45) made the situation even more complicated. Each of them told me to find another orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Toman not only knew what was wrong but actually debrided and repaired my hip socket, bursa, IT band and my knee through surgical procedures that did not require replacements. For the first time in years I am pain free and am confident that after I finish physical therapy I will have complete range of motion of my leg again.
