February of 2020 I began having significant pain in my back, hip and leg. I was unable to stand more than 30 seconds making shaving, showering, brushing my teeth among other things very difficult. I was also not able to walk more than 10 yards, missing out on walks with my wife and grandkids. I tried two injections from another provider with no success. I became sad thinking this was going to be my life. This lasted 6 months. When I met with Dr. Deal I was apprehensive regarding surgery. After our visit I was encouraged and confident in Dr. Deal’s diagnosis and plan. I had a lumbar laminectomy with microdiscectomy on July 29th. Today I had my 3 month follow up…pain free. I am so happy, my life is back!!! Dr. Deal’s P.A., Nathan Marcus, is awesome. They make a GREAT team.

I want to thank Dr. Harris so much for taking care of me and getting me back on my feet. When it looked like it may be days before a spot was open for surgery, it felt like he moved mountains and went above and beyond to make things happen and got me into surgery first thing the next day. That was the care and relief I needed. He has an incredible team working with him that got results. I would like to thank them as well, as I know they also went out of their way to provide me with great care in such a short time. Dr. Harris is an absolute miracle worker, the relief from pain due to the herniated disc was immediate and such a huge relief. He is a GREAT surgeon, great man, and hero to me.

As a “senior” I expect detailed information and a thorough explanation regarding surgical and medical procedures, and with my recent carpal tunnel/trigger finger I am happy to report that both verbal and written information before and after surgery was helpful and supportive. There was no wait time and cleanliness and safety was very evident from Dr. Gesensway and all of the staff involved with the surgery. I made a post-op phone call which was returned immediately. The pain management recommendations and plan was extremely useful without narcotic meds. With a right hand involved and size of the bandage/cast, I was not completely prepared for using my left hand for eating, dressing, meal preparation or hair washing and needed a little help. Not much dish washing or house work was done with my left hand since I live alone. I was happy to drive myself, rest when needed and slept well through the night. I also had an excuse to buy a few clothes to fit over the bandage/cast to make dressing easier. My adult, grown daughter warned me to have a post-op plan, and I did.

I had lived with Dupuytren’s Contracture in both of my hands for many years. It got to the point where putting on gloves or reaching into tight spaces became difficult because my fingers were pulled toward the palm of my hands. I researched online and the surgery to repair my hands looked guesome with a long recovery. I then heard about xiaflex injections that could be given without cutting into my hands. So I researched doctors and found Dr. McCarthy had done the xiaflex treatments many times with great results. I’m very happy with her care and expertise. My hands feel great now. I would recommend Dr. McCarthy to anyone considering correcting their Dupuytren’s Contracture.

I am 71 years old and over the years have sustained 3 rotator cuff tears following 3 separate injuries. Following each one, I underwent a rotator cuff repair by Dr. Norberg who was recommended to me by another orthopedic surgeon. Each time Dr. Norberg thoroughly explained the pathology in my shoulder, treatment alternatives and the reasons for his surgical recommendation. Most importantly, I have had excellent results. 8 months out from my last surgery, I am playing golf, shooting a shotgun and cleaning up leaves from my many oak trees. If my sons or granddaughters have shoulder problems, I will send them to Dr. Norberg.

My experience with the team at TCO has been outstanding. Partial knee replacement surgery was performed by Dr. Anseth. From the original diagnosis, right through the operation and the post-surgery follow up, everything has gone smoothly and the result has been better than expected. Prior to the operation I could not walk an eighth of a mile without considerable pain. Two months after surgery I was able to take a two mile trek through Lebanon Hills park. No cane, no pain.

Much of the credit for my speedy recovery goes to Jeff LaPanta, the TCO physical therapist who has overseen the rehab of my knee. Jeff is a very knowledgeable, personable, friendly guy who is great to work with and who obviously really enjoys working with people and seeing them reach their goals.

I had a total hip replacement August 4, 2020 at the age of 55. Dr. Owen O’Neill‘s team was so fantastic before, during and after surgery! I wasn’t one who wanted to know the details of how the surgery would be performed but knew that I would feel better once it was done. The team provided information, answered my questions, and I felt they were there with me all the way, figuratively holding my hand through the process. Friends and neighbors would tell me it will be so much better after surgery, but I had no idea how right they were. We talk about our pain level on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the worst pain you can imagine. Life before surgery had been a constant 5 or 6 and I would need over the counter pain relief 2 to 3 times a week to get to sleep. Since the surgery, my pain level was a 2 for a few days and I hit 3 once when I moved wrong. I didn’t need the pain relief medication beyond the recommended 2 weeks (I probably didn’t really need it that long but I follow rules). I have been walking every day and have worked up to 30 minute walks which I had not been able to do for almost a year prior to surgery. At 7 weeks post-surgery I was cleared to return to normal activity level. I was happy to be able to mow the lawn. I’ve been raking leaves and looking forward to shoveling snow this winter. I am so thrilled that I can be active and not have the pain. Thank you Dr. Owen O’Neill and team!! I would highly recommend your team to anyone I meet who is in need of a new hip!

I had a knee replacement done by Dr. Holmberg. The outcome was amazing. I had no bruising or swelling immediately after the surgery and none to follow. My incision is literally like a hair line as all the stitches were underneath the skin. My treatment from Dr. Holmberg, his staff, and Mercy hospital was superb. I have to have my other knee done in a few months and next time around I won’t have the fear and anxiety prior to surgery. I am confident that everything will go well.

Dr. Asp, Sarah Docken PA-C, and the rest of his team have treated my knees for over 10 years. He has always treated with the utmost and sincere care over the years. In August 2020, it was time to pursue a full knee replacement through the Excel program. My knee replacement surgery was a great success and I am pain free for the first time in years. Everyone from Dr. Asp, Sarah Docken, Maple Grove ASC staff, EXCEL nurses and the physical therapy staff in Burnsville have been instrumental in my successful knee replacement surgery and recovery. I look forward to returning to an active lifestyle soon.
