I’m 4 months post op. Dr. Toman performed a total hip replacement using an anterior approach. I understand this procedure is rather new & not many Orthos feel confident enough to use this procedure. Having had a resurfacing of my other hip 3 years ago, I can testify that the post op recovery this time was a lot easier. In fact, it took me almost a month to stop using a walker after the resurfacing, whereas I stopped using a walker after 1 week this time.
I’ve had many experiences with physicians over the last 72 years & no physician ( not even my brother Joe – Joseph A. Intile, M.D. ) has expressed so much concern for my well being. When a doctor enters the exam room on one’s first visit and says “hi, my name is Chuck”, one knows that this doctor is someone special. Thanks Dr. Toman ( I’m old school & wouldn’t use his first name out of respect ) for all you have done. Dan Intile
