Kevin L.

My whole experience could not have been any better; from the reception staff at TCO Waconia to the surgery team and nursing staff at Two Twelve Surgery Center, and my two physical therapists (who are fabulous). And of course, thank you to Dr. Christopher Meyer. TCO is the only facility that I recommend for a knee replacement. Thanks to everyone at TCO!

January 8, 2024

Susan T.

It’s been exactly 2 years, but I am more grateful every day for having chosen Dr. Meyer and his staff. Dr. Meyer is recognized as a highly skilled and conscientious physician. His serious, yet caring approach, as well as saying, “YOU tell ME when you’re ready,” gave me the confidence to move ahead, and the appreciation for having done so.

Joel V.

TCO’s Dr. Christopher Meyer did a total knee replacement surgery on me in June. He and his team did such an amazing job, and the outcome of that surgery was so good that when my other knee started to cause me a lot of pain, I did not hesitate to have Dr. Meyer do a total knee replacement on that one.

I had the privilege of having this surgery at the new Orthopedic Institute on Ridgeview’s Chaska Campus. I chose Dr. Meyer because he did a total knee replacement on my wife five years ago, and she had a great experience and outcome. I have numerous family members and friends that also have great things to say about him. Thank you, Dr. Meyer and your whole team, that took care of me before, during, and after my surgery. I appreciate all the kindness that was shown to me.


November 18, 2023

Susan T.

It is obvious to me why I have seen so many amazing and positive reviews of Dr. Meyer on numerous sites throughout Minnesota. Nearly two years since my knee replacement, I feel 20 years younger. I cannot say enough about the entire experience with Dr. Meyer, his team, and the Ridgeview staff. I highly recommend Dr. Meyer.

Marilyn G.

I have been a patient of Dr. Meyer for 15 years. In this time he has given me relief from pain with seven successful surgeries (both hips, both knees, shoulder, arm, and a severely fractured ankle and foot). Dr. Meyer and his PA, Sommer Vaughn, have always been very caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable about my care. They listened to me as a patient and plans were made for necessary surgeries. These surgeries have enabled me to continue to enjoy a normal life in my later years. I am now 83 years young, enjoying my husband of 65 years, 4 children, 9 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. I would advise anyone choosing orthopedic care to call TCO. It’s a close by facility.

Last year, I had a hip replacement with Dr. Chris Meyer, and it was one of the best things I ever did. I had such a great experience with Dr. Meyer, his staff, and the EXCEL Program, so I decided to bite the bullet and have my left knee replaced since it was bothering me for some time.

One of my passions is golf so I needed to time the surgery and recovery before summer and a golf trip that was planned. The surgery went well, and I followed the doctor’s orders to a ‘T’.  I was ready to hit the links!  I cannot thank Dr. Meyer for the care I received. I highly recommend TCO. They are the best!

Lynn J.

Last year I had a hip replacement with Dr. Chris Meyer and it was one of the best things I ever did. To add to that, my left knee had actually been bothering me for longer than my hip. Because I had such a great experience with Dr. Meyer, his staff, the staff at Two Twelve Surgery Center and the EXCEL Program, I decided to bite the bullet and have my left knee replaced.

One of my passions is golf, so I needed to time the surgery and recovery to take place before summer and a spring break golf trip. I had the surgery on January 18, which went really well. I followed the doctor’s orders to a “T” and by the time our Spring Break trip rolled around, I was ready to hit the links! As a matter of fact, I golfed 144 holes in one week and got my FIRST HOLE IN ONE only 9 1/2 short weeks after my surgery! The smile in the pic attached says it all. I cannot thank Dr. Meyer and all involved for the care I received. I highly recommend them. They are the BEST!

Jodie P.

I just want to thank Dr. Christopher Meyer and his staff. The program I went through was amazing. The staff was even more amazing! The team helped me throughout the whole process and answered all my questions to make it a stress-free experience. My job is pretty physical where I need to kneel and get up from a kneeling position. I am able to do my job 100% and I am able to do it without pain. I am truly thankful that I chose this doctor and the staff that supports the whole process.

April 14, 2023

Michelle B.

I highly recommend Dr. Christopher Meyer and his team at Twin Cities Orthopedics. I had been dealing with severe hip pain on my right side for the last few years. After having total hip replacement surgery, I am now pain free! I wish I would have done this sooner! My surgery was done at the Two Twelve Surgery Center in Chaska. My experience there and throughout this entire process has been wonderful. Thank you to Dr. Meyer, Cara, Sommer, Andrea (RN from the Surgery Center) and Donica (EXCEL Program coordinator), and team for the excellent care that I have received. I am truly grateful.

December 21, 2022

Lori R.

I had a left total knee surgery on November 8th at Two Twelve Medical Center. The pre-op and post-op care was absolutely amazing. Before surgery I was very well informed what was going to be done and what to expect. Post-surgery I have not had pain but just some tightness/stiffness, which is to be expected. I could not be happier with Dr. Meyer and the care I received. Six weeks after surgery, I was walking (no limping) and can do everything except running and play pickleball, which I will be starting again! Do as they say, and you will do fabulous. I could not be happier. Thank you Dr. Meyer, my Physical Therapy crew (Megan & Max), and the whole pre- and post-op care personnel. They are the best!

December 20, 2022

Diana W.

Having been very active most of my adult life, it was difficult for me to start giving up all the sports I had enjoyed because I couldn’t manage the pain anymore. My doctor and nurse friends recommended Dr. Christopher Meyer and I am SO thankful to have followed through with him and his staff. It’s been 3 months from my surgery and I’m cross country skiing again, lifting weights, and walking at a 15 minute mile pace! I am beyond ecstatic to have my life back. Thank you SO very much Dr. Meyer and your amazing staff!

November 30, 2022

Jack P.

In April and November of 2022, I had my long overdue knees replaced by Dr. Chris Meyer and his great staff at TCO. I am only 1 week into recovery with my second replacement and I am so grateful to have Dr. Meyer and TCO execute everything perfectly. I know the process ahead takes plenty of hard work and time, but I couldn’t ask for a better team than Dr. Meyer, Sommer, Tammy, and Greg and the crew at the TCO Performance Center for expert PT.
Many thanks!

September 27, 2022

Sue R.

Dr. Meyer and TCO staff deserve a million pats on the back and a verbal stream of thank yous. His team has a combination of professionalism and care. The team members involved run like a well oiled gear. They were invested in my knee replacement and are doing the same for others too. They are doing an awe-inspiring job meeting and dealing with patients in a time when their anxiety is high and uncertainty abounds. Oh and the team of nurses, physician assistants, surgical team, therapists, etc. have caught that caring spirit as well. They are wonderful.

I’m sharing a tub full of “thanks” for making a difference in my life. God can’t be everywhere so he sent doctors!

August 29, 2022

Sue R.

Dr. Meyer and staff, you deserve a million pats on the back and stream of thank you’s. Your team has a combination of caring and professionalism. The team members involved run like a well-oiled gear. I could tell you were invested in my knee replacement and doing the same for others as well. You are doing an awe-inspiring job meeting and dealing with your patients in a time where their anxiety is high, and uncertainty abounds. Your team of nurses, physician assistant, surgical team and therapists have caught your caring spirit, they are wonderful too! Tub full of “thanks” for making a difference in my life!

July 1, 2022

Dan M.

Thank you for making this procedure so much easier than I had anticipated. Every stage of my surgery and recovery was professional and I would recommend Dr. Meyer and his team without any hesitation!

April 18, 2022

Gregory S.

The entire process was done with excellent communication and great care throughout. Physical therapy is a must. The highly trained staff crafted and executed a rehabilitation program that met and exceeded my expectations. The counseling also relieved a lot of stress, when certain aches and pains were noted as a part of the typical healing process. They are an awesome group of very talented and thorough professionals. They communicate very well between the surgery team, the after care, and the therapy teams. The bonus is that the scar is hardly noticeable. I would highly recommend Twin Cities Orthopedics, Dr. Christopher Meyer, and team.

March 22, 2022

Debra G.

I would like to thank Dr. Christopher Meyer and team for the great job you have done on my left knee. Your excellent work is truly appreciated. At 6 weeks post-op, I am very pleased with the outcome. I still have work to do and certainly will accomplish that, since I want the best outcome I can get. You have all given me the opportunity to be better.

I want to thank Dr. Meyer’s PA, Sommer, who closed the incision. Thank you so much for your excellent work, it looks great. And I want to thank Dr. Meyer for his attention to detail. I believe it makes a difference. I know it takes a team and I am proud to be part of this team!! Thanks again for all you do, and not just for me but everyone you work with.

November 17, 2021

Chris S.

The staff at TCO Chaska and Waconia offer the highest patient experience and I am so glad that we received care there. Dr. Meyer is a top-notch orthopedic surgeon. I completed all of my pre-op and post-op rehab exercises, and together, the teamwork paid off. I highly recommend Dr. Meyer and his team to anyone needing orthopedic care. I have already recommended him to several people who have asked!

October 28, 2021

Bradley B.

I had great results from my total knee replacement. I couldn’t even walk one block before surgery and now I can walk a mile without difficulty and I am only six weeks post-surgery. Dr. Meyer‘s team has treated me so well. I have recommended him to many friends and family. Dr. Meyer changed my life.

April 1, 2021

Richard W.

The staff at Dr. Chris Meyer’s office did an excellent job working with me. They answered all my questions in a prompt and efficient manner. They returned my calls and answered questions with clear, easy to understand answers. Dr. Meyer did an exceptionally great job on my knee. I had very little pain and quick rehab. Thanks to all the staff and a shout out to Dr. Meyer!

February 18, 2021

Michael H.

I am now at 6 weeks post-op from a total knee replacement with Dr. Christopher Meyer and I am certainly feeling as good as I did six weeks pre-op. I expect I will recover endurance and increase muscle tone as I continue to work back into shape. I’ve had knee problems since the age of 14 and have had three surgeries before this one. I am now 56. I feel that six weeks from now, with the consistent work and positive mental attitude, I will have more use of the lower body and better overall quality of life then I have had for many years.

February 2, 2021

Thomas W.

I have been treated by Dr. Meyer for years, he has helped me with multiple body aches and pains. I am more than pleased with the outcome of both knee replacements and shoulder rotator cuff repair. I am now able to do just about anything compared to before I was very limited in my activities. My follow-up care has always been great. He is a caring provider, I would highly recommended Dr. Meyer.

January 25, 2021

Rita L.

I am an 82-year-old very active woman and it got to the point where my right knee was really causing me trouble. I had a knee replacement and it was a good thing. The first three weeks hurt but with PT things are getting better. I am still going to PT and am getting better each day. Dr. Christopher Meyer and his team were excellent.

January 3, 2021

Donna M.

Dr. Chris Meyer is a quiet, get it done right professional. My total hip replacement has been a positive and healing experience with good follow up visits. As time goes on I know I am in good hands with Dr. Meyer and his competent staff.

December 29, 2020

David L.

The surgery Dr. Meyer performed on me has greatly reduced my pain. I still have some pain and swelling but I’m not fully recovered yet. I anticipate that this surgery will be a complete success. I would recommend anyone having knee pain and getting the diagnosis for a partial or full replacement to go for it! I’m very happy I did!!

December 9, 2020

Susan D.

My knee surgery went very well. I couldn’t believe how much faster I recovered with this knee surgery. Dr. Meyer was very professional, friendly, and efficient. I have recommended him to many people. I really liked him and his staff. They explained the procedure and were very helpful when I called with questions.

November 18, 2020

Mary R.

The EXCEL program at TCO took a tough knee procedure and made it easier. From Dr. Meyer to every nurse and staff member, they exceeded my expectations. The physical therapy team of Mike and Nikki were amazing! Keep up the great work you do!

November 4, 2020

John H.

Following my total knee replacement with Dr. Christopher Meyer, I got my life back!! All in all an excellent experience in every way.

October 13, 2020

Jon W.

This is the second knee replacement with Dr. Meyer and both of them could not have gone better. I was fortunate to have very little pain, and mobility of knee came rather quickly. I am now blessed with good knees that will allow me to have a lifestyle that doesn’t include limping.

September 3, 2020

Joe M.

My experience with Dr. Chris Meyer at TCO was truly extraordinary, and I am very grateful for his expertise and competence on the operating table, during after-care appointments, and for the long-term follow-up support.

Dr. Meyer is an excellent surgeon and came highly recommended to me by a personal friend, who is also a physician. I had a great deal of confidence because of the three-word recommendation from my friend: “There’s nobody better.”

Dr. Meyer and his staff were professional, thorough, careful to explain steps and expectations, and personally made me feel important. The communication was always precise, and I was able to clearly understand steps, projected length of surgery, recovery time and other pertinent details regarding physical therapy and care at home. Dr. Meyer showed me x-rays of my new right hip and my other hip replacement that was done about 15 years earlier and explained the differences. He informed me that I would have more flexibility in my new hip because of research and technological advances.

I am sticking with these three words: “There’s nobody better!”

Louis S.

The day to day pain is gone I can go out and do normal activities without 3-4 days of inflammation and pain that I would have prior to my knee surgery with Dr. Meyer.

August 20, 2020

Brad N.

I would highly recommend Dr. Meyer if you are needing a joint replacement. Dr. Meyer is a wonderful doctor, he has provided me with a lot of information, before and after my total knee arthroplasty. He took the time to listen and answer my questions. My knee is doing so better now than before surgery. He is a very thorough doctor.

August 11, 2020

Mary M.

Dr. Chris Meyer and his team (Cara and Summer) did a great job replacing my knee. I had a severe Meniscus tear and stress fracture which was eliminated by a full knee replacement. I am still recovering 6 months later but am back to my daily routine of activities with less pain. With continued exercise and stretching, my recovery is on schedule. I plan to have my right knee done next fall!

July 28, 2020

Kerry R.

Dr. Chris Meyer and team did a great job from start to finish for hip surgery. Everyone from 1st appointment to follow up including the cleaning staff were very professional, kind, and motivated to give me the best care possible. Thank you all.

July 28, 2020

Mark H.

My total hip replacement with Dr. Christopher Meyer made my overall life better being that I have little to no pain anymore. I have told a lot of people this was a very positive experience and would recommend TCO if they would need this procedure done.

July 24, 2020


Dr. Chris Meyer is a very pro surgeon. He doesn’t waste words but knows his business well. I would recommend his services and also his assistant Sommer Vaughn, PA-C. Choose this group for your surgery and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It took me less than a year to completely recover from my knee replacement. I’m not running marathons, but I can make it up stairs without pain now!!

July 21, 2020

Rosalie S.

I was in a lot of pain before surgery and had a lot of trouble with daily activities. Dr. Meyer did a great job on my hip and now I am pain free and able to do the things I want to do. Surgery only took just over an hour and Dr. Meyer and his team were great to work with. I highly recommend him and his staff.

July 20, 2020

John K.

Dr. Christopher Meyer and all medical staff were great, very pleasant and really seemed to know what they were doing. Following my total knee replacements, all the sharp pain I was having in my knees is gone and I can function again.

June 10, 2020

Ronald S.

I was hardly able to walk last spring and prior to surgery, I could not go up and down stairs without using the railing or my cane. I had one knee replaced in June 2020 and second knee August 2020. Now, I have no issues. In November, I played 18 holes pain free! I played 15 rounds of golf in November. I am really happy with everything Dr. Meyer and Sommer did for me.

June 4, 2020

Lisa S.

After surgery with Dr. Meyer, I can walk without a limp and stand without having my legs go numb. I can also stand for longer now and can do the things I enjoy like walking or biking. I am also able to do my job better and do not tired as easy as before.

March 31, 2020

Sharon H.

I am amazed at the results of my total hip replacement by Dr. Christopher Meyer! I had difficulty getting into the car, going up or down stairs, bending, getting dressed, etc. I even noticed I was not standing straight. All of the pain is now gone, I can move freely, and I’m standing tall! So happy I could get this surgery twice (both sides)!!

January 15, 2020

Gene O.

Prior to my surgery I could not play golf and going up or down stairs was difficult and painful. My overall activity level was low. I was also suffering from mild depression due to my poor knee joint health. Dr. Meyer had replaced my right knee joint two years ago and the results were excellent. My most recent surgery was again through the EXCEL program and Dr. Meyer did an outstanding job replacing my badly deteriorated left knee. My recovery progressed well and my overall experience exceeded my expectations in every respect. I quite literally have my life back with two new knees. I cannot recommend Dr. Meyer and the EXCEL program highly enough. Both were outstanding.

December 23, 2019

John S.

Before my surgery I was not able to do my daily work activities. I am an electrician and it was tough to climb a ladder, walk and go in and out of trenches. I was 48 when I got a new hip. Everyone says ‘why so young’? Dr. Meyer said that my new hip will outlast me. My wife says I walk straighter and am a lot easier to be around!

December 19, 2019

Maryjo N.

Having my knee replaced has given me back the ability to move and live without pain. Dr. Meyer is an amazing surgeon, everything from pre-surgery to the actual surgery to post surgery has gone very smoothly and just as Dr. Meyer described. And my incision scar is very minimal even just a month after surgery! Doing all the pre-surgery and post-surgery exercises have also played a key role in my recovery, just as Dr. Meyer said. I will definitely go back to Dr. Meyer if I have any other joint issues and I highly recommend him as a surgeon.

December 19, 2019

David K.

I went through 30+ years of pain, limited range of motion, and off and on limping. Now my knee feels 95% like normal. I can golf with no issues, take long walks, climb stairs, and live life. This surgery with Dr. Meyer has been amazing and I am very grateful.

December 16, 2019

Keith K.

Surgery with Dr. Meyer has eliminated the deep pain within my hip. It has restored my ability to carry out daily life activities without compensating for the pain. I feel wonderful. My new hip has restored my full mobility. The entire process was transparent and the expectations were exceeded.

December 12, 2019

Uloopi B.

Surgery with Dr. Meyer completely changed my mobility and overall physical condition. I can walk, climb stairs bicycle without problem.

December 10, 2019

Paul L.

To the entire staff at TCO,

It is difficult for me to even know how to completely describe the incredible experience I had at TCO during the past few months. Let me start with the facts. I have had a problem with my left knee for about 15 years, ever since a mountain bike accident caused a small stick to penetrate and damage my knee.  This somewhat minor accident caused arthritis to develop. A few years later I had two arthroscopic surgeries to remove pieces and shape my meniscus. This helped but years later the arthritis continued to advance. My first consultation with Dr. Christopher Meyer at this point put me on a path to relieve the pain for several more years.  Of course, we knew at some point a knee replacement would become necessary. We arrived at that point this fall.

From the time that Dr. Meyer recommended the replacement to today (8 weeks post surgery) my experience has been nothing but extraordinary. I cannot think of a better customer service experience in my lifetime! The care and attention I have received at every level has been amazing! There has not been a moment during this process that I didn’t feel completely cared for. The folks at the surgery center were amazing, everything was explained in ways that I completely understood and my concerns were listened to and addressed. The aftercare following surgery made me feel very encouraged and comfortable. I never felt like I was being rushed out and I felt like those attending to me considered me important.

Then, I went to Aurora for the rest of the day and one night. Oh, my gosh! I literally felt like I was the only patient there. But it was more than just the care and attention. The staff was friendly and, again, they never seemed rushed. I appreciated the time they took to have conversation with me and just be available. They took the time to listen to how I was doing and remembered things like I REALLY like my coffee and accommodated me on some of those little things that make you feel so at home. I have to drop a big thank you to Rachel! I know there were others but I don’t remember all the names. Sorry!

The follow-up has also been amazing! I’ve gotten timely calls to make sure I was doing ok and to ask if I needed anything. Also, Sommer has been wonderful in answering all my questions and making sure I have everything I need.

Then, it was on to TCO Burnsville for physical therapy and Alissa has also been amazing. Once again, she listened to all the little nuances of how my knee is doing and how I was feeling each time I went there. She has been encouraging every time and each time I left facility I felt like I knew exactly what I needed to do to keep progressing.

If I could think of one thing you could improve on, I would tell you.  But… I can’t think of one thing! I truly wish I could remember the names of all the people who attended to me throughout this process but I can’t. Just know that every one of them should be commended because EVERY ONE of them did a great job! Dr. Meyer, Sommer, the folks at the check-in desks, the nurses, the attendants, the anesthesiologist, the aftercare folks, Rachel, Alissa…every one of them.

James P.

I no longer have to find an alternate activity when travels include long walks and medium hikes. I have less pain and better sleep after a typical active day.

December 4, 2019

Kenneth O.

Extreme pain prior to surgery and a hard time sleeping. Now I can walk normally with no pain. Still have some stiffness if I sit a long time but that goes away after I walk a couple of steps. Very happy with Dr. Meyer. He did a good job.

November 12, 2019

Galen T.

My hip replacement by Dr. Meyer has changed my physical life. I struggled with neck pain for at least 10 years but after my hip surgery found it much easier to walk upright and correct my posture, which I have done at 65 years old. My chronic neck pain is now 90% gone! And my hip? Incredible! No pain, perfect! I feel whole again!

November 11, 2019

John O.

I am continuing to heal. I appreciate very much the high level of care that I have received through this entire process with all involved from Dr. Meyer, TCO, and Ridgeview Medical Center! I look forward to my knee fully healed.

November 6, 2019

Kathleen I.

I was a very active person who hiked, biked, played tennis two hours a day, lifted weights and did many things during the day. My knee was very worn out and I became extremely debilitated. My pain was at a 10 and walking was extremely difficult as was sleeping. I felt like I couldn’t do anything without intense pain. After I had the surgery and went through strenuous physical therapy, I am now back to doing everything I like to do without pain. It took approximately 4 1/2 months to get back playing high-level tennis and now I’m playing three hours a day. I had absolutely no idea that I could feel as good as I feel doing the things that I love. I would have the surgery again if needed! Dr. Meyer did a great job! I would highly recommend him. The nurses and the support team were fabulous too.

November 5, 2019

Jodi C.

My surgery was a great success! Dr. Meyer was extraordinary and the care I received was amazing! The nurses at the Chaska Surgery Center were incredible! The recovery has been moving along smoothly. Walking without pain is such a treat!

November 1, 2019

Stephanie K.

Prior to my shoulder surgery with Dr. Christopher Meyer, I was not able to use my right arm at all. Instead, I was using a sling to keep from moving it at all to avoid the extra pain that came with it. After my surgery, I was able to go back to my everyday life and use both arms again!

October 29, 2019

Edward S.

I’m able to ride my bike pain free and most importantly ride my horse pain free!! Thank you Dr. Meyer and TCO!

October 24, 2019

Todd O.

Both of my hips were bad and needed to be replaced. I could barely walk into a store or walk more than 200 feet without experiencing extreme pain. Now, after my hips have been replaced and healed, I often forget that I have new hips! It is still unbelievable what the hip replacement has done for me, I’m back to normal. Dr. Meyer did a great job!

October 19, 2019

Sandra K.

My knee was very bad before surgery with Dr. Meyer. Now I can do almost everything like walking stairs and take care of my house on my own. I am going to Montana in December and Australia and New Zealand in February. Thank you!

October 9, 2019

Paul L.

Speaking for the surgery itself, I am already amazed after only 5 weeks, how much of the pain I was having in my knee before the surgery that is now basically gone. There is mild pain from the surgical process itself but I can tell that within months I will be able to do activities that I was severely restricted in doing before the surgery.

This renewed ability will allow me to continue work in my outdoor adventure ministry that would have been restricted otherwise! I can, with confidence, say that this is a life-changing procedure that I have had done.

I would also like to add that the whole process from diagnosis to follow-up has been extraordinary. The care that I have received has been far above my expectations. Dr. Meyer’s diagnosis, recommendations and, of course, his surgical skill have been excellent! Then, the care and follow-up by Sommer, the care by staff at the hospital and Aurora (Rachel!) and Alyssa at PCO, Burnsville for PT was absolutely amazing. Excellent experience!

October 8, 2019

Judy P.

I still have pain & stiffness from the surgery but I can tell that my knee will be 100% when it heals! Dr. Meyer did an amazing job!

September 24, 2019

Frederick P.

My hip surgery done by Dr. Meyer has allowed me to walk regularly again without pain.

September 5, 2019

Frank C.

Like so many others I waited too long to have my knee surgery. I am glad I did it. I can walk again!

September 3, 2019

Brenda R.

Before my first hip replacement with Dr. Meyer, I had stopped doing everything. After it, I was able to resume some walking and pool exercise. Then my other hip started getting the same pain. The simple things I was doing had to stop. Now, after my second hip replacement I actually thought to myself that if I needed to run to save someone’s life, I think I could do it. I have shared with so many people how the hip replacement has decreased my knee pain so much that they should make sure their hips aren’t the problem before getting knee replacement. I am able to take full stride steps and walk fast. Seems simple but it wasn’t just three months ago when I was, again, doing this weird lumbering walk. I no longer need to worry about how I am sitting. Prior to my right hip replacement, my hip would get stuck. The pain was phenomenal! I’m not worried about that anymore. The pain also impacted the low impact water aerobics that I was doing. Now I’m not worried about that anymore either!

Hip replacement surgery with Dr. Chris Meyer got me back to living! Prior to having the surgery, I was avoiding a lot of physical and social activities because of pain and lack of motivation. After surgery, no pain and no sitting out from the fun!

I had both my knee & hip replaced on my left side by Dr. Meyer and would not even know that anything was done. I have no pain, full range of movement, and feel like a person much younger than my age (75). Thanks much to Dr. Meyer and staff!

I can do things like I could when I was younger. In June, I camped in 3 State Parks and 2 camp grounds. Before knee surgery with Dr. Meyer, I would have maybe done only 1.

After my injury, I could not even get close to what I could once do. After the surgery with Dr. Meyer to repair the injury, I am very close to having all my movement back and feel great about that!

I am able to sleep at night on my left side without pain. I continue my PT exercises daily by myself, and feel they have helped tremendously in my complete recovery. Though I am right-handed, I can do more with my left arm than I can with my right arm. I am looking forward to having surgery on my right shoulder this coming spring/summer.

Excellent work by Dr. Meyer and his team. I am very satisfied with my recovery plan and look forward to strengthening my shoulder. All of my goals have been met and an excellent result from procedure.

My knees were both so painful, that I could no longer walk normally, or do my job. I tell everyone I know that has any knee pain, not to wait one more minute. It changed my life!

I had total right knee replacement 6 months before having the right hip replacement. I had hit a wall in my rehab with the knee because of pain from both hip and knee. The knee continued to be painful even 5 months after the surgery. I can’t believe how much better both knee and hip were one month after the second (hip) surgery. Very little discomfort in my daily activities and walking is going very well. I’m so grateful to Dr. Meyer as he told me I would be so much better after the hip surgery and he is right!

Dr. Meyer and his team are simply amazing. I would and have recommended them to everyone who I know is in need of this kind of help. Thank you to Dr. Meyer and his team it has been life changing.

Al & Mary L.

My husband and I both had surgery with Dr. Meyer, at TCO. I was first to have surgery with a partial knee replacement in December of 2017 at Two Twelve Surgery Center. I’m so happy I did it, as now I can walk pain-free and enjoy doing things that I wasn’t able to do before. Two weeks later, Al fell and tore his achilles tendon. On January 2nd, I had my check-up with Dr. Meyer and he stated how great I was walking. After some discussion, he learned of Al’s injury and he showed me how to test to see if it was torn. After checking, we called Dr. Meyer’s team and and Al went to see Dr. Meyer on January 3rd. His pre-op appointment was on January 4th and he had surgery on January 5th. We can’t say enough about how impressed we were that he got in that fast! Four months later, Al was weed whipping and fell on his left shoulder. He went back to Dr. Meyer and had surgery to fix his rotator cuff and torn sub scapular. For both of us, this was a huge set back as we are both Harley riders and, due to the shoulder injury, were not able to ride until September of 2018. Needless to say, we are so thankful for Dr. Meyer and all that he’s done for both of us.

Before the surgery I struggled to get out of a chair. I teach first grade and those 6 and 7 year olds do not want to wait for their teacher to get off her chair or struggle to get off the floor. Every step was painful and I struggled to sleep at night. Now I don’t have to think about how to get off the chair or floor – I just do it. I have no pain and am able to keep up with my kiddos at school.

Catherine H.

Before the surgery with Dr. Meyer, my life was non-stop pain. Walking, standing, sleeping or lack of sleep all affected by the pain. I avoided stairs for fear of the knee giving out. The other day I went upstairs, got to the top and realized that I had gone up alternating steps with out thinking about it. In the past I wouldn’t have been able to get up without using a single step method. It’s refreshing to think of my new knee as the good one and cannot wait to do the second one.

I would recommend TCO and Dr. Christopher Meyer if anyone needs orthopedic surgery.

I have been a bowler all of my adult life. When my knees became too painful, my scoring suffered and I made adaptions to the way I bowled. I had surgery on my first knee, which didn’t change too much. Then the second knee made a big difference. I’m slowly getting back to where I was. It’s no longer embarrassing to bowl because my average has gradually crept back up. Thank you Dr. Meyer.

Being only 53, I assumed I should wait out the pain in my knee, until I ‘was older’. Dr. Chris Meyer asked me an important question, ‘immobile now, or worry about being immobile at 83?’. I signed up for the surgery as soon as we could work out the details! The care has been top notch, the recommendations were spot on and follow up was fantastic!! Now at 5 months out, instead of rating my pain with every step, I have an occasional sense of fullness in my knee. It’s still healing for a year, but best move ever! Thank you all, TCO!

Robert C.

I am able to feel less stress because the new knee feels good. I enjoy golfing and I am able to play as often as I want/can. A better quality of life for sure. Thank you TCO and Dr. Meyer.

I had a wonderful experience with TCO, especially Dr. Meyer and his team. I have shared my shoulder surgery experience and referred other people looking for an Orthopedic Surgeon.

Last year I was extremely limited by my knee pain, unable to walk my dogs. I felt like I was 90 years old. Now I am walking my dogs almost 5 miles each day. I am completely satisfied with the surgery from Dr. Meyer.

My hip pain started shortly after I had a work related injury. TCO also rebuilt my ankle, but my therapist was not getting the range of motion she felt I should have had in my hip. Further tests showed arthritis had deteriorated my hip joint. Coming off of joint surgery for my ankle, I wanted to wait on surgery so I tried other options for my hip. None helped long term so Dr. Meyer performed a hip replacement surgery in January. I am more than pleased with the results. My hip continues to get stronger and I have lost 16 lbs in the past two months because of more physical activity. My wife and I had our bikes overhauled and I am picking them up this week. I would recommend this surgery, for anyone considering it.

I am so much more active. I have been joined the YMCA and am able to participate in exercise classes, Zumba, water Tabata and dance for almost three hours straight to a great band. There are very few activities I can’t do that I want to do. At the very least they are much easier. And, I’ve lost 30 pounds and love being active. It has made all the difference to my retirement!

All activities were limited to places with no stairs. It hurt to step up on a curb. Now I don’t even think about it. I climb up bleachers to watch my grandkids play sports without a problem.

Terrie S.

My knee replacement by Dr. Chris Meyer in the TCO EXCEL Program was excellent! The all-inclusive program from the beginning to the end through physical therapy was comprehensive and beyond my expectations. No hassle billing was so nice – it was the way it should be. Knowing the cost in a bundle makes it so much easier on the patient.

Surgery with Dr. Meyer has removed the daily pain I had in my knees. I find myself running up and down the stairs now and have even returned to rollerblading!

After the shoulder tear I was not able to do many of my normal activities. After the repair I followed the recovery plan to the tee. With the excellent therapy I received, I consider the surgery a complete success. Thank you Dr. Meyer!!

I think TCO, Dr. Meyer and staff are the best, follow the instructions, if you have any questions they are there to help you right away. I have had excellent results with two hip surgeries, you are the best. Thank you.

Before surgery I was in nearly constant pain. Since surgery with Dr. Meyer and recovery/healing, I am able to resume a nearly totally normal life. About the only thing I cannot do very well is kneel on the knee.

I love the fact that I can walk 18 holes of golf again. I hated taking a cart while my friends walked the course. Nice to be able to join them in walking.

I had both of my hips replaced by Dr. Chris Meyer at Ridgeview Medical Center. I had an excellent experience and felt that I was well cared for throughout the process from Dr. Meyer’s physician’s assistant, to Dr. Meyer and his surgical team, and finally to the Ridgeview team post-surgery. I am an extremely satisfied customer!

I am incredibly active and this surgery, done by Dr. Meyer, has allowed me to get back to everything I enjoy doing. I am grateful more than words can truly express.

Surgery with Dr. Meyer has allowed me to bike without pain. Now, I can ski a full day in the mountains and ski in bad conditions without being hobbled. I successfully returned to Masters alpine ski racing after 8 years of not being able to compete due to the pain.

By no longer finding the physical limitations and pain associated with my pre-surgical hip, I am able to get improved sleep and greater activity, all significantly improving my mental health. As a father and husband, I’m more engaged, less irritable and more involved.
