This was as the easiest surgery I have ever had. My knee is young again and I am very pleased. I hope to have surgery on my shoulder next and feel 100% confident getting it done at TCO again. Thank you Dr. Moen and team!

I can not say enough about what a great experience I had with Dr. Moen and his receptionist Steph! I was visiting family from out of state when I tore my meniscus. Dr. Moen quickly fit me into his schedule when he heard. He determined that I would need surgery and had me scheduled for surgery 2 days later. His receptionist Steph called me, I’m sure after hours, to set things up that same day! She was so helpful answering all my questions and quickly emailing and/or calling me back. I unfortunately was not able to have surgery because of Covid. Still…Steph was AMAZING at helping me get info to my ortho in Oregon and continuing to help me even though she knew they wouldn’t be doing my surgery. This was above and beyond what I expected and it really brings me to tears realizing how great I was treated. If I’m ever in the area again when an emergency knee problem hits, I know who I’ll call. Thanks Steph!!

As a patient of Dr. Steven Moen for years, I would like to express myself on his behalf. Dr. Moen is a remarkable orthopedic surgeon, whom I respect for his honesty, knowledge, candor and passion for his profession. I’ve had both my knees replaced by him and currently I sought his opinion on my hip. Osteoarthritis and age are not kind to the human body. I accept his opinion through the use of x-rays, my past diagnoses and his brilliance. Anyone interested in being seen by an intelligent and honest orthopedic surgeon should call Dr. Moen. You’ll be so glad you did. Thank you, Dr. Moen, for everything!

I was very pleased with my recent total knee replacement. My options were discussed in easy to understand terms, what to expect during and after surgery, its risks, and all my questions were answered. I was totally at ease going into this surgery and had faith in Dr. Moen. His assistant Steph made herself available for my silly questions, and refilled my prescriptions immediately, going the extra mile. I attended the two hour pre surgery class and would recommend it to anyone considering knee surgery. I followed the three week pre-surgery exercises to the letter. My recovery at home was easy, pain free, and I was weaned from my pain medicine within two weeks. I am back to doing everything I need to do, pain free. I am so happy.

I had a right total knee replacement by Dr. Steven Moen in 2007 and the left in 2008. Surgery and rehab/recovery went extremely well and I have been very active and pain free since. But the true test was a hike down into the Grand Canyon and out, February 4-5, 2016. I hiked OUT of the Canyon on the Bright Angel Trail in 6.5 hours. I was told the average hiker does the trip out in 9-10 hours. Very happy with the success of the surgery and recovery!
I wanted to tell you how glad I am that I came in to see you and that I had the two cortisone shots in my hips. I am virtually pain free now, and I am able to sleep comfortably. I only wish I would have made an appointment to see you sooner.
Being able to have the consultation, x-rays and procedure done all in one appointment was really convenient. I appreciate that very much.
Also, I want to thank you again for all the wonderful care you gave Megan from the first time you saw her in urgent care in February until her last appointment with you in August. You really made a difficult situation that much easier with your medical expertise and compassion. She wants to continue her education after high school graduation with a desire of becoming an orthopedic doctor as she one day hopes to be able to help people with the same understanding and care you gave her. The same can be said for Stephanie as she was so nice to work with and always answered any questions we had. She always made sure Megan was comfortable during her cast appointments as well as other follow-up appointments. We can’t say enough about the care you both gave her at TCO.

Doug B. (pictured on right) had suffered with daily knee pain for 5 years due to various sports injuries had suffered. After two arthroscopic procedures and several cortisone shots, Doug scheduled an appointment with Steven Moen, MD (pictured on left). “I discussed my past history with Dr. Moen and how my knee pain was affecting me on a daily basis,” he said.After attempting one final cortisone shot, Doug opted to have a total knee replacement. “Dr. Moen performed the surgery and I couldn’t be happier,” he said. Aside from a few difficult days, Doug said he has been extremely pleased with his new knee. And he describes the follow-up care he’s received as “the best I have ever experienced.”
