Dr. Toman repaired a torn rotator cuff for me, Ruth, in May 2010. Surgery was at one o’clock in the afternoon and I was home at five same afternoon. He instructed me to go home and take some pain medication before I experienced any pain. I did this a couple days and never had any real pain. The most uncomfortable part is not being able to lie down the first week or so, and having to wear the arm sling 24/7 for a month. But that and going to therapy and doing exercises at home is all worth it to be free of pain and to be able to use my shoulder and arm again freely without any discomfort. Dr. Toman is a very skilled surgeon and is very caring. He expects and demands the best for his patients. Thank you Dr. Toman.
