Recognized for our pursuit of excellence in providing quality care to our community, Eminent Medical Center is a distinguished leader in healthcare. Dr. Charles Toulson is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, fellowship trained in adult reconstruction. Dr. Toulson earned his medical degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has extensive experience that began with his train- ing at Johns Hopkins Hospital, the highest ranked hospital in the United States. He then completed his sub-specialty training at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, which has the top orthopedic program in the country. Dr. Toulson has been voted among D Magazine’s Best Doctors, Living Magazine’s Best of McKinney/Allen, and he was featured on CBS 11 News! 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. 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. He was the first surgeon in the area to perform a direct anterior hip replacement with robotic assistance. Most recently, Dr. Toulson completed the first ever, total knee replacement for both of a patient’s knees bilater- ally (simultaneously) using the MAKO™ Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology. Dr. Toulson’s education and training are only outmatched by his warm smile and kind- hearted nature. www.eminentmedicalcenter.com (469) 910-8800 Find us on Facebook @EMC.TEXAS
