Testimonials - Dr Charles Toman
Dr. Toman came highly recommended to me after I had told some friends about the severe pain I was having in my left hip. I was convinced that I was going to need a complete hip replacement at age 64.
I am a 53 yr old female who has been very active in sports all my life. Approx. 5 yrs ago, I was having alot of problems with my knees. I finally said enough was enough and realized that my knee pain was impacting my ability to participate in sports and even walking was a chore.
My rotator cuff was injured and the MRI showed a possible partial tear in the tendon. Dr. Toman met with me and answered all my questions. He even took the time to draw me a picture explaining what the surgery entailed.
I was referred to Dr. Toman by my family physican with a torn meniscus. I was in severe pain. His office got me in within 3 days and surgery was scheduled immediately. The treatment I received by Dr. Toman’s staff, as well as in Fawcett hospital was better than excellent. It was superb.
Dr. Toman replaced my left shoulder at Fawcett Memorial Hospital at the beginning of April. I highly recommend Dr. Toman. There has been no pain throughout the procedure and my recovery.
It is one of the best decisions I have made. My shoulder was bothering me to the point that I had trouble sleeping and raising my arm. My wife kept after me to see a doctor. From my first visit with D.Toman, I knew that I had made the correct decision.
On Feb. 8, 2011 Dr. Toman performed a right total shoulder replacement and muscle re-attachment on me. I was 70/1/2 at the time. His skill was obvious by my recovery time.
In the middle of July 2010 I had an unfortunate fall which resulted in the dislocation of my right shoulder. I was taken to the Portsmouth, NH Hospital where the shoulder was reset. About 12 weeks later the shoulder was still very uncomfortable and it was decided to have further x-rays and MRI which revealed the rotator cuff to be torn.
Dr. Toman did a complete knee replacement on me in November of 2010. I was only in the hospital 3 days and at the end of 2 weeks I was in out patient therapy. Dr. Toman’s outstanding skill as a surgeon and advance technology had me up and moving well within 6 weeks.
Dr.Charles Toman replaced my left knee in October of 2010. In 5 days I was walking, doing my outpatient rehabilitation and exercising.
