Twin Cities Orthopedics, 

I had my left hip totally replaced on March 20th, 2017. This was my second hip replacement, and I was invited to participate in the Excel program at TCO, where I would be having my surgery and recovery done in a non-hospital setting. It was a great way to get this done. My surgery was scheduled early in the morning at the Surgery Center, and after coming out of the anesthesia, I was brought by van to an assisted living facility. There, I had a room to myself with my care giving staff in the room next to mine. They provided excellent around the clock care including checking on my well being and physical therapy sessions. I was ready to go home by 11:00am the very next day. 

The staff members I came into contact with through the entire process were all great! Very professional and caring people that were, in my opinion, some of the best care givers out there. I had Dr. O’Keefe as my surgeon and he did a great job with my hip replacement. (He had done my right hip back in 2014 as well.) 

I’d surely recommend the Excel program for anyone qualified to do it. For me, it was a great way to get my hip replacement done. I’m enjoying being able to do the activities I enjoy a lot more comfortably now. 

Thanks, 

Michael C.

I wanted to commend your providers and their excellent staff at your Elk River location. Michael Mastous and Dr. O’Keefe treated my son Liam after a break to both bones in his arm just below the wrist. Liam is a freshman at Elk River High School, and during practice, he suffered a break during a rebounding drill that we all thought would require surgery. It was about 4:00 pm when the break occurred, and I thought your Elk River location accepted walk-ins. When I arrived, the staff politely explained that this was not a walk-in clinic, but they would ask Mike if he would see Liam anyway. Fortunately, Mike and the staff agreed, knowing treating Liam would require them to stay at the office late. After the confirmation via x-ray that both bones were broken, Mike explained that surgery was 50-50 proposition, and regardless, manipulation would be required to splint the arm. Mike diligently proceeded with his staff to manipulate and mobilize the arm via splint.  They all assured Liam ( who was feeling more depressed then the pain in his arm ) that whether surgery, or, if by chance the manipulation lined the bones up properly and surgery could be avoided, that his arm would be fixed.  Upon one-week follow-up with Dr. O’Keefe, he showed us and explained that the manipulation lined up the bones perfectly, but, he didn’t want to remove the splint until more healing took place.  Dr. O’Keefe was fairly confident that surgery could be avoided. 

Surgery was avoided, and at this point in time, the cast is off and Liam is starting to dribble with his left hand. For a kid that practices no less than 2 hours a day, and loves basketball, the care your team provided was not only exemplary, it assured a young man that this was just a small bump in the road. Please extend my sincere gratitude to your fine staff at Elk River, and know that Twin Cities Orthopedics is my only recommendation for Elk River High School athletes who may suffer these types of injuries. Further, in my duties as a high school basketball, football and lacrosse officials I will communicate the fine care we personally experienced at TCO.

I was referred to Dr. O’Keefe by my primary physician because I was having issues with my right hip.  Dr. O’Keefe performed a physical and did X-Rays and it was determined that I should have the hip replaced.  There was no pressure from him.  He said I would know when the time was right.  He performed the surgery almost a year ago and I have been very happy with how my recovery has gone.  Thank you very much Dr. O’Keefe and staff for your assistance.

If you are looking for a straight forward, direct response to your questions and treatment, Dr. O’Keefe is the orthopedist for you.  His treatment of and eventual replacement of my knee were fully explained, options considered and decisions made together. I highly recommend Dr. O’Keefe, his support staff, and therapists.  My journey to knee replacement recovery was seamless due to the care and concern of this team. I recommend DR. O’Keefe to anyone who asks about my knee/surgery.

After experiencing severe pain in my right hip, I met with Dr. O’Keefe and he advised cortisone shots which got me through the golf season.  He then suggested a total hip replacement and after surgery I was up and walking the next day with little discomfort.  I was able to go home in less than 2 days.  I am now looking forward to getting my left hip replaced.

Thanks to Dr. O’Keefe for everything.

I am so grateful for Dr. O’Keefe and his staff. I had injections in my knees that helped immensely! I appreciate the time he takes to explain the options available. I am hopeful that the injections will be all I need, however, if I need further interventions, he is the one I will return to! The front desk staff, X-ray techs and his assistant are very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Hats OFF to Dr. O’Keefe and his entire team!!

After Dr. O’Keefe performed a MRI on me he told me that the only help was surgery.  Dr. O’Keefe has excellent relations with the patients.  In August 2016, I saw him 4 weeks after surgery and he order 4 weeks of therapy. I had therapy twice a week and did my therapy on days that I didn’t have therapy scheduled.  By November, I was at 100%. I am now in Florida trap shooting and playing golf weekly.  Thanks again Dr. O’ Keefe for a great job.

While taking part in an obstacle course mid-September, I suffered a shoulder injury, specifically a dislocated shoulder. After an immediate trip to the emergency room to have my shoulder placed back into the socket, I had to make an appointment to see an orthopedic physician to explore some options. This is when I met Dr. O’Keefe. I explained my situation to him and he had me schedule an MRI, concerned there may be additional damage to the injury site. He was correct. I had also torn my labrum. Again, it was time to explore some options. Surgery was not on my list of things I wanted to do, but Dr. O’Keefe explained it was the best avenue for me and more importantly, why. In a few minutes, Dr. O’Keefe reminded me of the meaningful things in life, which was significant because he spoke of my family, all while my wife and kids were in the room. I agreed to have surgery, followed by physical therapy. Dr. O’Keefe performed the procedure on me, which was a success. While I was in recovery, Dr. O’Keefe went to fill my wife in on how it had gone and said to call with any questions or concerns. This made me feel like I was the only patient Dr. O’Keefe had since it seemed as though he had committed so much time and effort on me since I had first went to see him. Following surgery, the team of physical therapists at Twin Cities Orthopedics in Otsego treated me with dignity and respect. All in all, this mishap, which was not planned, intentional, or desired, gave me the opportunity to meet some great people who had genuine compassion and sincere interest to get me back to normal.  I would profoundly recommend having Dr. O’Keefe and the team(s) at Twin Cities Orthopedics facilitate your orthopedic needs.

My knee replacement has been a journey from knee pain, orthoscopic meniscus repair surgery, cortisone shots, and finally full left knee replacement. Dr. O’Keefe and his team have been with me through all steps, answering questions, offering support and finally helping make the decision to replace a very worn out knee joint. The decision was mine made on the facts that the knee joint and pain was affecting the quality of my life. I am 72 years old and have places to go, things to do, a loving, supportive husband, children and grandchildren, with whom I want to share my life, not observing from the sidelines.
I strongly recommend attending the recommended pre-operation seminar that gives you a great overview of the hospital stay and process. Do the exercises daily leading up to the surgery and after! Ask questions.
My surgery was on Wednesday and I was home, with help from my husband, on Friday. Physical therapy in the hospital, at home, and at the clinic has enabled me to walk without a cane at home, except on stairs, within 3 weeks and slowly ride a stationary bike, only for 5 minutes within 4 weeks after the surgery. All of this success is due to the wonderful, positive, supportive team that works with Dr. O’Keefe and Twin Cities Orthopedics. I totally believe that my successful recovery is due to this team and would highly recommend them to anyone with knee joint pain. I had arthritis in the joint and no meniscus. They dealt with all of this and I could not be happier!

Dr. O’Keefe has been my go to physician for many surgeries. He is an incredibly dependable physician and is always happy to answer questions when he is available. Candice and his care team are fantastic! Dr. O’Keefe is a kind man with great bedside manner. He never rushes appointments and does not keep patients waiting long. I would and have recommended him to many people I know considering operations. I would rate Dr. O’Keefe an 11 on a scale 1-10! Cannot say enough great things!

Dr. O’Keefe did an excellent job of repairing my broken elbow that resulted from a bicycle accident. The follow up was appropriate. I completed Occupational Therapy at Twin Cities Orthopedics with good results.
