"As an athlete myself, I understand what it takes to get you back to your sport after an injury. Whether your injury warrants surgical treatment or more conservative measures, rest assured that I will work with you to get you back to 'your game.'"

Dr. Toma has built a reputation as a caring and compassionate surgeon with outstanding technical skills. He will be your advocate, provide you with the best care available, and educate you on all of the current treatment options. He is proud to provide quality care with the most cutting-edge procedures available.

Dr. Toma believes that many orthopedic conditions can be managed non-operatively, and is an advocate of physical therapy and other conservative treatments. However, if surgery is necessary, he utilizes minimally invasive techniques if at all possible to reduce pain, scarring, and functional limitations.

Dr. Toma is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon with more than 25 years of experience, and he was awarded M.D. of the Quarter in 2011 by the John Muir Medical Center in Concord. He performs surgery at John Muir Medical Center, Mt. Diablo Medical Center.

Dr. Toma began practicing orthopedic medicine in 1993 after earning his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School. His internship in general surgery and residency in orthopedic surgery gave him the confidence and skill necessary to develop innovative treatment programs that speed recovery and get results.

Anterior total hip arthroplasty is one of Dr. Toma’s specialties, and he has created an extremely successful hip arthroplasty program at Muir Orthopaedic Specialists. He has helped many patients resume a pain-free and active lifestyle after being disabled.

In his spare time, he likes to ski, bike, and play with his children. Dr. Toma was born in Iraq and is fluent in Arabic.
