Patient Testimonials

Terry N.

I saw Dr. Schmiesing and had a great experience with the entire process of surgery and recovery!

Randall P.

Dr. Schmiesing did fantastic work replacing my left hip. He was very friendly, kind, efficient, patient, and thorough. He informed me what to expect, answered all my questions, performed a great operation, and took the time and care for whatever my needs were for the follow up. I couldn’t have asked for better results. I thank him and his staff all very much for their professional care, compassion, and support.

Norma V.

Dr. Schmiesing did my surgical knee replacement. Of course, I had some trepidation about the procedure and the recovery. It was a much easier surgery than I expected and the after-care is wonderful. Being 5 weeks out, I feel I am progressing quite well. I would highly recommend Dr. Schmiesing for any type of surgical procedure and if I need future orthopedic procedure I would definitely have him do it for me.

Mark M.

I was bone on bone for years and it was time to get a new knee. Dr. Schmiesing performed the knee replacement surgery and I was walking the same day, with help of staff, who were very helpful and caring. One month later I was back at work and it’s been getting better with every day. TCO has been my go to team to take care of any problems. I will be returning to them for any further help.

Michele A.

Dr. Schmiesing replaced both of my hips this year. He’s kind, compassionate, and he listens. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I had little to no pain after surgery and no complications. I’m excited to be pain free and have my life back again. Thank you!

Chad N.

It was a great experience from the first visit until the last. It’s been six weeks since surgery and I’m walking an average of six miles per day. Dr. Schmiesing did a great job with the surgery and the follow up care. The EXCEL Program was a lot of help too, along with my physical therapist, Jacob. I would have this surgery all over again, if needed!

Meghan O.

Dr. Schmiesing provided excellent care from start to finish. He was sure I understood everything by the time I left each appointment and I never had doubt in the process. Dr. Schmiesing performed a successful surgery and even though we weren’t sure what he would find, he persevered what he could and made sure I came out of that surgery with the repair I needed. My recovery was as expected. His care team continued to follow-up and provide remedies as I needed them. Zach and Sydney also provided excellent care and were sure to return calls in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Andrew Schmiesing and his team for your needs. You will not regret your decision.

Dr. Schmiesing gave clear explanations during every step of the injection. He and his care team, Zach and Lauren, have very caring personalities. Within minutes I was walking out of the clinic. I would highly recommend Dr. Schmiesing.
