KS95’s Ryan is one of the most well-known radio personalities in Minnesota, but for 7 years, he hid a painful secret from listeners.

Ryan’s hips had gotten so bad, he could no longer walk. At his breaking point, Ryan turned to TCO, a decision that would change his life.

Dr. Kelly and his PA, Lindsey Anderson, make a wonderful team. They answered all my questions and would spend as much time as needed to do so. I never felt pushed into doing the surgery, but when the time was right, they were with me. I would work with them again anytime. They are upfront and honest and provide genuine care for their patients.

I was apprehensive about having a shoulder surgery but I had lost so much mobility in it. I now have almost complete mobility back and an mow working to increase my strength. It feels so much better than before surgery. I am very thankful to Dr. Kelly and Lindsey Anderson, PA, for all their support and encouragement!

Dr. Arntson is a very nice, kind, and personable physician. He was recommended to me by another surgeon when I discovered I needed to have a second hip replacement. 10 years ago I had my right hip replaced and the surgeon used the posterior method, which was common at that time. It was a long and painful recovery. I heard of the anterior method and my previous surgeon did not perform that type of surgery so he referred me to Dr. Arntson. I can’t even begin to explain what a pleasant difference it was between the two procedures.

Anterior procedure is surgery whereby the incision is on the front of the hip area and no muscles are cut. This alone speeds the healing process tremendously. The surgery required a one-night hospital stay at Mercy Hospital. I was treated very well! I was up and walking around, doing therapy the same day as surgery, and with no pain! I felt very comfortable going home the next afternoon. Minimal use of pain medication was required when used alternatively with extra strength Tylenol and Ibuprofen. No out-patient PT was necessary either. I just exercised and walked at home. I am at the 6 week post-surgery mark, walking normally and pain free. I don’t have any fears about this anterior procedure. I would highly recommend it and Dr. Arntson!

My rotator cuff repair with Dr. Kelly went well and I think the key to my shoulder recovery has been the dedication that I have put forth in my PT exercises given to me by my medical team. They have been very thorough on their discussions with me regarding what to expect and how to progress.

I am a mid-60s man and tore most of my right rotator cuff muscles rescuing my dog. That was two years ago. The surgery was complex but a few months after surgery with Dr. Kelly, I’d regained full range of motion and core strength.

I had knee replacement surgery on February 18, 2021. My surgery was delayed twice but I finally got to have my procedure done at TCO Blaine! Dr. Arntson has a very professional team. TCO Blaine was a great option too. They do the surgery and then they take you upstairs to your own room. It was beautiful and nicer than some hotels I have stayed at. The nursing staff was top notch and very professional. They were also very friendly, warm, and caring. The physical therapists were very knowledgeable and helpful. I had no problems with my surgery and recovery. I would highly recommend TCO and Dr. Arntson to anyone who needs orthopedic surgery!

In 2007, my right shoulder was bone on bone. The smallest movements were very painful and I was limited. My family physician recommended that I see Dr. Edward Kelly at TCO. Surgery and replacement was recommended. What a wonderful relief! Dr. Kelly performed an amazing surgery. I have no pain and have full use of my right arm to this day in 2021. You know who I will recommend to anyone needing surgery – Dr. Kelly! I am 92 years young.

Dr. Kirksson was very professional, knowledgeable in my interactions with him during my visit. I am told by many individuals that he is the best at giving cortisone injections and I would agree from my experience. I went into my appointment somewhat fearful, as I don’t like shots or pain, and my experience was very positive. I was amazed by it all. Thank you!

I felt totally secure with Dr. Koch and the amazing team at TCO. She explained everything in detail and got me in as soon as possible. When I left a message with her team about an issue, she called me within a short time and addressed my issue. I would not hesitate recommending Dr. Koch to anyone. I am so pleased with my experience!
