When you are talking about credentials, you should know that Dr. Charles E. Toulson is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and is fellowship-trained in joint replacements and revisions from the No. 1 facility for orthopedics in the country. When you are talking about the latest advancements in orthopedic surgery, you should know that Dr. Toulson is the only surgeon in the Dallas area combining the minimally invasive anterior hip replacement with the precision accuracy assistance of the Mako robot.
Dr. Toulson is leading all of North Texas in robotic-assisted joint replacements. His advanced hip replacement techniques result in rapid recovery times for patients, thanks to the precisely placed joint. “Most patients are walking without a cane or walker in just one to two days and driving in one to two weeks,” he says.
Dr. Toulson established Alpha Orthopedics to provide the very best amenities and care possible. Dr. Toulson has lead the way for two major hospitals in North Texas to achieve the elite status of being accredited as Joint Replacement Centers of Excellence. Alpha Orthopedics provides care for patients with all stages of arthritis.
Dr. Toulson is sought after for his excellent outcomes in hip and knee replacement, including the anterior supine hip replacement, which allows him to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the lateral (side) or the posterior (back) approach. This technique minimizes pain and recovery time. With the anterior approach, he can replace a hip joint without detaching muscle from the pelvis or femur during surgery. This method allows patients to immediately bend their hip freely and bear full weight when comfortable, resulting in a more rapid return to normal function. Dr. Toulson is the premier hip replacement surgeon in North Texas.
Dr. Toulson trained at the No. 1-ranked hospital in the U.S., Johns Hopkins Hospital, as ranked by U.S. News and World Report and completed his subspecialty training at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, which has the top orthopedic program in the country.
Alpha Orthopedics has been growing and is proud to add Dr. Jon C. Thompson to the team this year. With the addition of Dr. Thompson, patients can receive the same Alpha Orthopedics quality care in orthopedic sports medicine. Together, Drs. Thompson and Toulson can care for nearly all orthopedic conditions.
Alpha Orthopedics’ home office is located in McKinney at Craig Ranch, which is convenient for patients throughout the growing communities of North Texas. Alpha Orthopedics also has locations in Plano, Dallas, and Frisco.
