Would definitely recommend Dr Tenholder. He is certified to use robotics to assist in joint replacements. Had a total hip replacement and was up walking the same afternoon. Ft Walton Medical Center Physical Therapy staff had me moving and ready to go home in just one day. Continued with PT after surgery and it paid off. Fantastic experience.

This is my second knee replacement that Dr. Tenholder has done. He was the only surgeon I considered because he is so thorough, keeps up to date and is totally focused on excellent patient outcome. His team is very similar---caring, professional and highly qualified. You will be very comfortable in their care.

Dr. Tenholder is very attentive to you, listening to everything you have to say. He explains all options and what to expect. Surgery was my only option left. After surgery they have set up a web site to contact you every day and expect you to answer every day. This is also a way to get information about your particular situation. I think this was excellent and can't praise this enough.

I had a unilateral knee replacement and the outcome has been highly successful. Within a week, I was able to walk without a walker or cane, and at 7 weeks, I have almost perfect range of motion, balance etc. Dr. Tenholder is not only a highly skilled surgeon, he is a kind and caring individual. Rick, his Physical Assistant, the nurses, technicians, etc. were very professional and great at their jobs. I was amazed at how my entire care was expertly managed. If you are looking for an expert surgeon, I would highly recommend Dr. Tenholder.

Could not have been better. He is so informative before and after hip surgery in my case. His PA Rick is right there with him and they answer any questions you may have immediately. After many other surgeries this by far is the best example of an outstanding physician. My surgery went very well the follow up and recovery by far exceeded my expectations. March 19.2020

Dr. TenHolder, his clinal staff, etc. are compassionate, extremely hands on, and he is an outstanding Orthopaedic Surgeon. Rick, his P.A. Is incredibly intelligent and has a wonderful caring demeanor. I worked in medicine many years and I always look for health care professionals who are rated at the top and I was NOT disappointed with my care. Would I return if ever necessary—without hesitation.
