Patient Testimonials

June 24, 2017

William L.

I have had several shots in my hand to fight off a repeat trigger finger. It finally hit the stage where the finger remained troublesome and quite painful all the time. My rheumatologist advised that and I should seek surgery to correct the problem. I was impressed with the third floor facility there at TCO – Edina and the staff serving patients is top notch! Dr. Mark Urban completed the surgery and my ring finger is now free and soon the stitches will be out.

Susan A.

Dr. Urban is one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the Twin Cities,” said Susan, of Minneapolis (pictured in middle). After two knee replacements, rotator cuff repair surgery and carpal tunnel surgery, Susan has become very familiar with Mark Urban, MD (pictured on right), Joel Lancaster, OA (pictured on right) and the staff at Twin Cities Orthopedics. Dr. Urban “is a very kind and gentle man who not only cares for his patients but cares about his patients,” she said. “His technical skills are excellent. I am lucky to have Dr. Urban as my orthopedic surgeon.”
