Dr. Charles Toulson founded Dallas’ premier destination for hip and knee replacement, Alpha-Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. Conveniently located in Dallas and McKinney, his practice provides care for a full range of musculoskeletal disorders, diseases, and injuries to the human body. Dr. Toulson and his team at Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine share a passion for excellence in orthopedic care, and they work together to provide just that. Areas of specialty include, adult hip and knee reconstruction, adult hip and knee revisions, Robotic -Assisted joint resurfacing, knee arthroscopy, foot, ankle and trauma. DIRECT ANTERIOR HIP REPLACEMENT Dr. Toulson is a pioneer in direct anterior hip replacement surgery. Using only a three-to-four-inch incision, anterior hip replacement surgery allows for a faster recovery, less pain, and alleviates the need for postoperative hip range of motion restrictions. As a result of its muscle-sparing approach, it is most attractive to patients. This minimally invasive technique is so effective that patients are often walking the same or next day without a walker, cane, or crutches. Norman, a former Dallas Cowboy football player, had been living with hip pain for 7 years before becoming a recipient of a hip replacement surgery performed by Dr. Toulson. Upon meeting Dr. Toulson for his surgery, Norman expressed his experience by noting, “My first impression of Dr. Toulson, I came away with the word ‘genius.’ I was very impressed with his very positive attitude, his knowledge, his willingness and ability to explain to myself exactly what was going to happen.” Dr. Toulson stated: “My preferred technique for replacing a hip is going through the front of the hip, the anterior supine hip replacement. With this technique we can get to the hip without damaging any muscle at all, and if we don’t damage any muscle…patients can recover quicker than ever before.” Norman continued, “After the surgery I was walking around basically the next day. I was very, very happy with the outcome and very happy with the little time it took to recuperate. In my opinion, my life was back to normal in two weeks and I was thrilled with that.” ROBOTIC-ASSISTED HIP AND KNEE REPLACEMENT Dr. Toulson is considered a leader in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Robotic-Assisted hip and knee replacement and has performed more robotic joint replacements than any other surgeon in the area.
