Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Toma "Dr. Toma has built a reputation as a caring and compassionate surgeon with outstanding technical skills. He will be your advocate, provide you with the best care available and educate you on all of the current treatment options. He is proud to provide quality care with the most cutting-edge procedures available and will always tailor a treatment plan that will meet your goals as well as your occupational, recreational and lifestyle needs.

Dr. Toma's goal is to take an interactive approach to caring for patients. Education is a cornerstone of his practice as he believes that well-informed patients make the best decisions.

Dr. Toma believes that many orthopedic conditions can be managed non-operatively, and is an advocate of physical therapy and other conservative treatments. However, if surgery is necessary, he utilizes minimally invasive techniques if at all possible to reduce pain, scarring, and functional limitations."
