I had two hip replacements by Dr. Thoms more than three years ago. Not only he did a great job, I have confidence in him and respect his expertise tremendously.

I was told that if I had one knee done I would never have the other done! Well I had both done a few months apart and went home second day after surgery. No nursing home , living alone in my seventies. So pleased to walk without pain. Dannielle Ivey

in May i relocated back to CT and I needed to have my knee fixed, after weeks of doing research and consulting with my doctor in NC i picked DR Thoms to repair my knee best decision i could of made, he was great.
in Gales Ferry, CT |
..needed a hip replacement at age 58 due to childhood bone disease..DrThoms replaced the joint (using techniques enabling an excellent&rapid recovery) & lengthened the leg (needed ~1/4) & straightened its duck-footed stance. Not only am I able to continue with the sport of cycling, my spinning is smoother & my bike shoe's heel doesn't wack the frame with each revolution (..used to have to saw off part of the heel)! ..Can't thank DrThoms enough for my new hip and its functional upgrade!!!
