Since 1909, Campbell Clinic has provided unsurpassed patient care and has been recognized as the leader in teaching and research in orthopaedic surgery. The doctors at Campbell Clinic are dedicated to their patients and are always looking for ways to better serve them through advancing orthopaedic techniques.Dr. Patrick Toy Campbell Clinic

Dr. Patrick Toy is no exception to these doctors. Starting to perform direct anterior total hip replacement surgery at Campbell Surgery Center in 2013, Dr. Toy has allowed some patients to undergo this surgery in an outpatient setting. He has treated patients from all over the world, and is often looked at for consideration by patients wanting hip replacement surgery.

“I joined the Campbell Clinic staff as an orthopaedic surgeon in 2009 after completing a fellowship at The University of Florida,” said Toy. “Prior to that, I obtained my medical degree at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tennessee, in 2003 and finished a residency through the UT- Campbell Clinic program in 2008. My areas of specialty include total joint replacement surgery- both hips and knees- as well as sports medicine and orthopaedic oncology.”

Campbell Clinic is an innovator in the field of orthopaedic surgery, and that’s something that’s stayed true for over a century. Campbell Clinic is a full-service orthopaedic practice, and specializes in sports medicine, total joint replacement, as well as the treatment of all musculoskeletal injuries and diseases.

Total joint replacement surgery has emerged as a high-demand orthopaedic procedure, thanks to the large number of baby boomer patients, who are now in their 50s, 60s, and 70s,” said Toy.

The main concern coming from these patients is that they will have to spend several days or weeks in the hospital, with some even worrying they won’t be able to return to physical activity after they have had their surgery. Dr. Toy offers good news to those patients.

“Surgery can now be performed on an outpatient basis for some patients, and most athletes can return to low-impact, moderate fitness activities if they take the recommended precautions,” said Toy.

Campbell Clinic normally treats more than 180,000 patients per year and is one of only a few centers in the U.S. that offers same-day, outpatient joint replacement. With several hundred patients receiving outpatient joint replacement last year at Campbell Clinic, Toy predicts this is where the future of this industry is headed.

“As more and more surgeons develop protocols to move eligible cases into the outpatient setting, this is going to become a more popular and accessible option for patients.”

Physical Therapy Services

Physical therapists, under the referral and medical direction of physicians, work closely with patients to aid in the recovery process after an injury or surgery. Using a wide variety of equipment and therapeutic modalities, they can help develop a plan for patients to improve long-term health and rehabilitate injured bones, muscles and tendons. Reducing pain, restoring mobility and improving overall levels of function are physical therapists’ top priorities.

A successful PT regimen will not only hasten the healing and rehab process for an injured or repaired part of the body, but it should also ultimately help strengthen the site to lessen the likelihood of future injury. The goal is to eventually return a patient to a similar level of activity as they experienced prior to injury. Initially, a physical therapist might employ modalities aimed at reducing swelling and gradually restoring range of motion. Later, proprioception exercises allow a patient to restore function and balance as they “re-learn” the sense of how neighboring muscles and bones work in tandem with the rehabilitated part of their body. For an ankle or knee injury, as an example, this might mean balance exercises standing on one foot that help improve coordination and strength.

Campbell Clinic specializes in orthopaedic and sports medicine physical therapy services, including spine rehabilitation, sports injury rehabilitation, post-operative care, aquatic therapy, orthotics/splinting, pediatric and geriatric orthopaedic rehabilitation and work injury management. Physical therapy is offered at all five of our locations (Germantown, Medical Center, Southaven, Spine Center and Collierville).
