Kathleen (Kathy) Taylor.
In July of 2010 it became necessary for me to have a total left hip replacement. Dr. Toman used the posterior procedure. The surgery was a complete success. My personal recovery was probably ahead of schedule and my left hip is great. In February 2012 I knew I needed my right hip to be replaced. This time Dr. Toman used the anterior procedure. Again, the surgery has been a total success and my personal recovery has been just short of miraculous. Since I am personally able to compare the two procedures, I must say that the anterior method is much, much better for the patient. There are many less post surgical precautionary restrictions using the anterior method. I personally feel that my recovery time will be less than half that of my prior posterior surgery. I consider myself fortunate to have a World Class Orthopedic Surgeon in my home town. I thank you Dr Toman and your entire staff for doing a great job and for your personal care and encouragement. You treated me like family.
