I had been suffering from pain in my left hip for quite some time. It was time for me to obtain a formal, professional evaluation. I learned that a Dr. Toman was using a procedure which was less invassive and had patients back on their feet in half the time. I made the appointment and Dr. Toman’s diagnosis was the hip was definitely the problem. He suggested using the anterior approach. (Coming in from the front of the hip) There would be less damage to muscle and many less don’ts in recovery. The afternoon after surgery I was on my feet and moving. The next day I had two sessions with therapy. After bed exercises, I was marched down the hall. This was very positive. I did so well that I was released a day early. My home therapist told me that I would progress very rapidly and sure enough, I did. I continued therapy with Lawrence Martin in Dr. Toman’s facility. Again, I completed the therapy skills quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Toman and his staff for any joint problems.
