Elizabeth O.

What a great day it was! My surgery was scheduled and performed on time, as promised- by my wonderful surgeon, the best there is, Dr. Moeller. My time in the operating room was filled with smiles and laughter as we chatted away the surgery being performed on my wrist. Before I knew it, we were done. I didn’t have to be put under, pain was controlled, but only lasted a day and my recovery has been wonderful. The scar is barely visible. In fact, I had another doc tell me the incision work was great. Thank you, Dr. Moeller, you released my carpal tunnel so I can finally conduct my life as a two handed person! Bye-bye numbness, hello hand!

I just wanted to take a moment to let anyone interested in hand surgery to consult with Dr. Amy Moeller at Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO). I, and my family, have had to utilize TCO on a number of occasions, and then recently I required surgery on my hand. Dr. Amy Moeller was recommended to me, and subsequently, she performed very successful surgery on my hand. I cannot speak highly enough about her abilities, as well as the attitude and performance of her team – from greeting/scheduling, to surgical environment, to the surgery itself and after-care. And I would have to emphasize her “bedside manner” – Dr. Moeller is outstanding in listening, understanding and relating. I have in the past done some consulting concerning operating room environments and safety – and hers was exemplary. Should anyone reading this need hand surgery, Dr. Moeller is the finest.
