Patient Testimonials

Phyllis B.

Dr. Bjerke replaced my left knee in April 2018. The surgery took away my arthritis pain in that knee immediately. After 6 weeks of outpatient therapy at TCO, I was able to walk again better than I had in many years. Dr. Bjerke and his staff (Katie and Andria) took wonderful care of me. I recommend them to anyone!!

I have my right knee replaced April 5, 2017 and my left knee replaced October 17, 2017, both by Dr. Bjerke. The staff all took great care of me. I have had wonderful results. The best thing is that I can walk pain free. This winter I have been ice skating and cross country skiing. Overall a great experience. So very happy to be moving again. The only advice I have for anyone thinking about having this done is: BE PATIENT. It may take 2-3 months before you start feeling that it was worth it! But it is the most wonderful thing ever!

Dr. Bjerke and his staff (Katie, Patrick, Andria) were very caring and professional. In determining that my knee pain was resonating from the hip, they first eliminated a number of potential causes focused on the knee. I was pushing for knee replacement, but their assessment of my knee structure as good led them to examine previous x-rays on the hip that indicated significant arthritis. That assessment led to hip injections that eliminated the pain and no surgery was required, all thanks to their pursuit of the actual cause.

I herniated a disc in my C spine in the fall and experienced terrible pain and numbness down my right arm. I saw Dr. Bjerke, who immediately got MRIs done and recommended rest, then a course of PT. He did an excellent job. I feel completely better and I just completed a 1/2 marathon. I am thankful to TCO for helping me when I was so worried a few months back!

I was very fortunate to be cared for by Dr. Bjerke! He applied emergency stabilization, recommended treatment protocol, performed surgery and provided followup care. We were extremely impressed with the knowledge, expertise, professionalism and caring manner of everyone we worked with – from the urgent care and surgical staff to the physical therapy specialists. Thank you for the excellent care, Dr. Bjerke and staff! It made a very painful situation much easier that I felt I was in good hands.
