TOA Testimonials

Extremely Pleased with Hip Replacement by Dr. Kurtz

I am extremely pleased with (a) my hip replacement by Dr. Kurtz fourteen days ago and (b) our preliminary examination discussions and (c) the ordered MRIs.

Consultations were quiet and well-informed. He answered all my questions in detail. The MRI looked ugly with a broken/fused/cracked femoral head--resulting in pain and a right leg considerably shorter than the left.

The surgery was on an outpatient basis. Shortly after a relatively quick OR stay, Dr. Kurtz updated my wife regarding its success. And a success it was: I'm currently walking with the help of a walker. Five (to date) physical therapy sessions at TOA have been helpful. There's no discernable difference in the length of my legs.

Three notes: (1) My wife is a retired wound care RN. She's very pleased with my now almost healed incision. (2) Dr. Kurtz was referred to me by my General Practitioner, who, over the years, has referred me to few different medical specialists. My GP's referrals have always been to exceptional doctors in their various fields (for which I was always very pleased). His referring me to Dr. Kurtz continues those exceptional referrals at 100%. (3) I'm very grateful to Dr. Kurtz, his staff, and to the many kind medical professionals at Saint Thomas Hospital for Special Surgery, Ascension Saint Thomas and TOA.

"I immediately felt like he actually cares"

Most efficient doctor's visit I’ve ever had. He had me in and out in no time, without feeling rushed. He was very present and attentive. I immediately felt like he actually cares.

I played my first round of golf since surgery, completely pain free!

I had a right total knee replacement performed by Dr. Jordan. Nine weeks to the day, I played my first round of golf since surgery, completely pain free. Dr. Jordan and his staff were caring, professional, and communicative. Post-op pain management was beautifully handled, balancing my need for meds with the inherent addictive properties of particular narcotics. Physical therapy is a huge part of getting the most out of a knee replacement. The TOA physical therapy staff was encouraging and effective. I had certain expectations going into this process because my left knee was replaced a year before in California before I moved to Tennessee. TOA and Dr. Jordan exceeded all my expectations. Dr. Jordan even recommended a primary care physician, of whom I am now a patient! It is tremendously reassuring to know I’ve found excellent orthopedic and primary healthcare in my new home, all thanks to Dr. Jordan.

Dr. Carpenter is a class act

When I first met Dr. Carpenter, he complimented my boots with a smile, looked at my x-ray, and said "I can fix this." three weeks later I had a total knee replacement. His staff were friendly and professional. I would recommend Dr. Carpenter to anyone. I was on my feet and back to work in two weeks. He is truly a very skilled surgeon that knows his stuff. I have already referred my brother-in-law to him and he is scheduled for his surgery in three weeks. Dr. Carpenter is a class act.

"Dr. George was the kindest, most thorough doctor"

Dr. George was the kindest, most thorough doctor I have even seen. She is so educated and knew exactly how to treat my condition. She did surgery and stayed on top of everything I needed.

I recommended Dr. Smith as highly as possible!

I assumed Dr. Smith would not be a good communicator or a compassionate person when I was told that he was a first-rate surgeon with the lowest of infection rates. Since I wanted a first-rate surgeon with a low infection rate, I figured I could deal with whatever his shortcomings might be. My assumptions were SO WRONG. He was a terrific communicator, patient with questions and good with explanations that were clear, but not overly technical. What's more, he was kind. Before my shoulder replacement surgery, from which I have healed very well, he checked in with me and was positive, gentle, reassuring. I so appreciate this doctor! I recommended him as highly as possible.

Olympic Bound after Successful Surgery with Dr. Jordan

“My name is Kethlin Campbell, and I am a D1 Collegiate Track and Field athlete. As a National Champion and Conference Champion, who was once ranked 3rd in the world in the 400m dash, performing at an elite level is essential to my continued success. As injuries are things we cannot predict and often happen at the most inopportune times, having capable and caring physicians are essential to regaining, not only your health, but the confidence to once again compete at the highest level. During the 2021 season, I suffered a serious cartilage injury to my knee that caused me to miss participating in the Olympic Trials, which I had already qualified for. Facing a surgery and countless months of rehab, I felt confident in the care I received with Dr. Michael Jordan at TOA Murfreesboro. Today, I am back competing and hope to again have the opportunity to participate in the Olympics.”

I'd recommend TOA & Dr. Rubright to anyone!

I would recommend TOA, specifically Dr. Rubright, to anyone thinking of having surgery on their hand or arm. He recently performed Carpal Tunnel surgery on both of my wrists at the same time. While I've had several surgeries, I must say this was the easiest to recover from. Dr. Rubright has a charming manner and put me at ease from the very beginning. He was extremely easy to talk to. The entire staff was very kind from the office staff to the surgical staff. If I am ever in need of any further assistance, I'll definitely choose TOA.

Dr. Langan is by far the best orthopedic doctor!

Dr. Langan has been by far the best orthopedic doctor I have ever had. I kept breaking my ankle in the middle of having to get a knee replaced and he kept me chugging right along! Great results from everything!
