I am a Dr Toman Hip replacement patient. Last January I asked Dr Toman to repair a damaged hip. The repair gave me some improvement but did not reinstate a manageable quality of life. In July Dr Toman replaced the hip in a brief surgical procedure, five hours later the hospital physical therapist had me walking the halls for exercise. During this entire operation I had little if any discomfort,two weeks later I was back to a normal but cautious life with very little soreness. Dr Toman’s original January diagnosis was to replace the hip and he was absolutely correct. In my opinion Dr Toman is a skilled and gifted surgeon and I would recommend him without hesitation. His no nonsense approach makes this surgical decision understandable and easy for any patient. It is three weeks since my hip replacement and I am 90% back to a normal, comfortable, no pain lifestyle. I’m thrilled!
