What Hurts?

Neck & Spine

neckandspineBecause the neck and spine are flexible, load-bearing structures, they’re more vulnerable to physical stress and tension than other areas of the body. In fact, that vulnerability is so persistent that a large percentage of the population will experience trouble with the region at some point.

Shoulder

shoulder smallWe tend to think of the shoulder as one structure, but it’s actually made of several joints, tendons and muscles that control the mobility and motion of your arms. If that mobility and motion is compromised, however, any of the working parts and pieces can suffer, resulting in gnawing aches or sharp pains.

Elbow

elbow smWe use our elbows constantly: to pick up objects, to eat and drink, to play sports and even to work at the computer. This complex joint is designed to handle those repetitive motions, but overuse can often result in several types of recurrent pain.

Hand & Wrist

hand and wristOur hands and wrists are veritable hotbeds of activity: four hand bones, two arm bones and a whole host of tendons, muscles and ligaments. Any of those elements can cause pain if they’re misaligned or otherwise compromised, and the discomfort could range from a minor ache with movement to severe pain that doesn’t stop.

Hip

hipHip-related pain is one of the most debilitating injuries. Our hips help to control every step that we take, so it can be especially problematic to lose the fluid, normal functions we often take for granted.

Knee

kneeIf your leg were a Broadway production, the knee would be its shining star. This joint bears more weight than any of the others in your body, and it’s a major player when it comes to walking, running and even standing.

Foot & Ankle

footandankleWhere would we be without our feet and ankles? These complex structures help us stand, balance and get from place to place, and every piece of their maze-like systems needs to be in perfect working order to avoid issues with related areas.

General

TOCA with backWe thrive on offering the most innovative technologies and state-of-the-art techniques. TOCA deals with both surgical and non-surgical options, and we also work with pain management, joint replacements, pediatric orthopedics and spinal disorders.

Client Testimonials

I traveled from Wisconsin to Arizona to have Dr. Bailie repair my left knee. My choice was based on previous knowledge of Dr. Bailie and his expertise in Orthopedics. I am extremely pleased with the results and from pre-op to post-op, the experience was A+. Dr. Bailie along with his staff are very professional and truly care about their patients. Communication is excellent and the results of my surgery were all I hoped for. Recovery time was minimal and I am ready to head back to work in less than two weeks. I will gladly make the trip in the future if any other Orthopedic issues need addressing.

Toca is the place to get all your worn out and damaged parts repaired and replaced. I’ve had Dr Cummings repair my knee, Dr Lederman replace my shoulder, Dr Burgess relieve the carpal tunnel pains in my hands. No more numb hands. Plus, Dr Huston helped me with my back. It’s not just the Doctors, but the anesthesiologists they use are all top notch. If you have worn out your body, this is the place to go. Better living through surgery.

I am so pleased I chose Dr. Lederman to operate on my shoulder. Recently, Dr. Lederman and his PA, Julie Perry, did just that with a Delta Reverse Shoulder Joint Replacement. They did a great job. I couldn’t believe how well everything went. So smoothly. And hardly any pain for a day and a half. No pain the rest of the time? Now how many people can say that? Because of the lack of pain, I was able to exercise my arm. I’m doing very well now and will continue with TOCA PT for a while to strengthen the arm and shoulder. Family and friends can’t believe what I had done until I show them my X-ray. It’s amazing.

I highly recommend TOCA physicians, PT, OT, and staff. Dr. Feng and Dr. Vella have treated me on separate occasions; both are experts in their fields and took time to answer all of my questions. They also have top-notch therapists: Jason (PT) and Debbie (OT). The Front Office staff are always friendly and excel in customer service.

My name is Rafael , and I had knee surgery a couple days ago with Dr. David S. Bailie. I have worked with top professional tennis players for over 20 years, and on behalf of my athletes I have worked with some of the best and most famous sport medicine doctors and facilities all over the world. I can honestly say that Dr. Bailie and his staff were by far the very best team I have ever experienced.
I couldn’t have been more pleased with every step of the process – from the 1st visit to the TOCA office located on Bell Road (definitely the best of all other locations in Phoenix or Tempe), to his surgery team/facility, ending with the quality and results of the surgery. I was very nervous and concerned about the entire process, but now that I’ve found Dr. Bailie’s team, my attitude toward orthopedic surgery has completely changed. Thank you, Dr. Bailie. YOU ARE TRULY THE BEST!!!

Dr. Burgess provides an exceptional level of care. I have had two recent surgeries on both hands and feel my care was better than I could have wished for. Dr. Burgess ensured that I understood my treatment options. Both Dr. Burgess and his assistant Lisa were genuinely concerned about my care and recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Burgess and his team.

Dr. Duhon and team performed an anterior right hip replacement on 11/5. 2&1/2 weeks later I am pain free. I walked 1/2 mile today and look forward to resuming golf, hiking, and yoga in a few weeks. While at Scottsdale Shea I heard several very positive comments re: Dr. Duhon..nurses, physical therapists, and the Internal Med doc. Glad he was recommended to me, I’ll pass it forward!

Dr. Armendariz was the kindest, most informative and very thorough physician. I would recommended him to anyone! Dr. Overlin and Dr. Haber are great as well!

I had arthroscopic knee surgery by Dr Lederman 3 weeks ago and am very pleased that my pain is gone and I am already walking so much better. The therapists, especially Steve at the Union Hills location, have helped me so much. Every time I walk out if there I can see and feel a difference. The staff is always friendly and helpful. My sister had used them before and is presently under their care now. We recommend TOCA for all your orthopedic needs.

Dr. Johnson did an amazing job on my surgery & making sure I recovered well after. I would recommend him to everyone. Best surgeon in town & he cares about you getting back to 100% again! Everyone in his office is really nice too. His PA was great! He did surgery on my Father-in-law’s arthritic foot years ago & he is doing much better since!

I had a previously failed surgery repaired with Dr. Steen Johnson and PA Jared Susini and have to say not only was the surgery a success but so was finding TOCA!!! I will never have a surgery performed anywhere else. From first visit to last follow-up my entire experience was extraordinary to say the least. I was treated with the utmost respect and my situation was dealt with in a “personal to my particular problem” manner. TOCA is hands down the best orthopedic clinic in the valley and would recommend them to any one for any reason!!!

I went to see Dr. Vella with severe pain on my left elbow. I was surprised because I never met a doctor that was so knowledgeable and who thoroughly explained how he was going to fix the problem. I went ahead and had surgery for my elbow and right away it felt 100% better and I got my strength back. I went again to see him a year latter to fix my other elbow and it already feels great. I mean if you find a good doctor you you back. I just have to say that everyone in his office was super nice. Thanks Dr. Vella for doing a great job. I will tell everyone I know and recommend you, telling them what a great doctor you are.

Dear Dr. Padley, Jason & TOCA friends in Mesa: My new knee turned 1 years old April 1st and it works/feels great! We’re enjoying Oregon very much; ran a marathon on my birthday, snowboarding, and even climbed MT. Hood! Thank you for your spectacular work, service and support

Brett

I am so grateful for the kindness you showed me this past week. You truly went above and beyond towards helping me with my foot pain. First, you made time for my appointment with you on Tuesday. Next, you took the time to explain my stress fracture to me. Finally, you personally called your colleague to schedule an appointment for me. Wow! You truly touched me. According to Thoreau, you are an artist in my book – you certainly affected my day and week!

I wanted to thank you for your care and prompt attention to the problem with my right knee (torn medial? meniscus) Everyone, including Stella, Mariah, and your physician’s assistant were helpful and pleasant. Your practice is a smooth running operation that is patient and friendly. These qualities are quite important for someone, like myself, who is not familiar with the medical community here in Phoenix.

My knee is coming along gradually. Hopefully, I will be able to resume playing golf. If not, you will be hearing from me again about having surgery.

It has been a year since my hand surgery. I still can’t manage to remember the name of the procedure, and I know that every time Lisa asked me if I was glad that I did it – I would say No.

I would answer differently now. Being pain free (and inconvenience free) is an amazing thing. I wanted to thank you both for giving this to me, and to tell you that I think of you both every single time I take dishes out of the dishwasher and carry them effortlessly to the cabinet. I’m not Kidding! I have my mobility back – and life is good. Thank you both!

Thank you for the time you spent with me this morning to assess the current issues with my left leg including the knee and ankle.

Your practice and staff are cutting edge and state of the art. I truly appreciated the personal attention as well as professional treatment that I received today. I left this morning knowing that I’ve made the right decision in selecting a new practice in Phoenix to deal with my “bionic” leg. I know that I will receive the first class care that I’m used to in Baltimore.

Shout out to Dr. Steen Johnsen for a great surgery that happened 2 weeks ago and a perfect incision. Could not ask for a better doctor!! I want to refer EVERYONE to Dr. Johnsen that has any foot or ankle problems. One of the most caring doctor’s I have seen. Thanks Johnsen!!
