I had surgery at TCO Blaine in November. This was the scene at my home a few days later. SEE VIDEO HERE. Thank you, Dr. Erik Wetter and staff for the excellent service and care. My hips don’t lie anymore!

I had my hip replaced by Dr. Hartigan on November 14th.  I was up walking that afternoon pain free! What a joy! All the staff at the surgery center and in the EXCEL program were great. I had wonderful care. They took time to discuss options for medications and answered all of my questions. Unlike in a hospital, when I pushed my button for a request, they came instantly. Everyone from the driver of the van, to the support staff, nurses and PT were friendly and kind. I never felt rushed.

Both Dr. Hartigan and his PA, Aaron, have the best bedside manner. They took plenty of time to answer all my questions, and never rushed me out. I always felt very well taken care of. I cannot say enough about the wonderful program. My only suggestion is on some of the TCO branded clothing, it should say “ask me about my new joint!”. Thank you for everything. I am so enjoying life pain free!

Dr. Arthur performed my knee replacement surgery on June 9, 2022. This past month, my wife and I went on a hiking trip to Sedona AZ. Six months to the day after my surgery, I spent three days hiking in the desert and mountains of Arizona. I just wanted to say thank you to the whole team there at TCO and the EXCEL program. Last year I would not have been able to take that trip.

I went to Dr. Hunt after being referred to him by a friend. My shoulder had deteriorated from osteoarthritis, due to wear and tear brought on by an active lifestyle. I was approaching this procedure with trepidation due to the long recovery time associated with shoulder replacement. I am now 10 weeks past my surgery date and my shoulder is doing great. I am way ahead of where I thought I would be at this time. My 2 month post-op with Dr. Hunt included an X-ray image of my new shoulder joint and everything looked great with textbook alignment and positioning. I credit Dr. Hunt’s skill and experience with this really good outcome. Regular physical therapy is also key. My other shoulder is next on the list for replacement and I am sure I will be going back to Dr. Hunt.

I’d like to thank Dr. Knowlan and his care team for the outstanding service and care they provided before, during and after my procedure. I cannot say enough about TCO and their staff. They provided competent and professional care and communication every step of the way. Thanks again!

In the fall of 2021, Abby’s foot hurt while running during cross country meets. We saw several doctors, including orthopedic ones. She had an MRI also. No one could figure it out and another orthopedic doctor said there is nothing wrong. As a frustrated mom, I called Twin Cities Orthopedics. She had an appointment with Dr. Paul Langer. At her appointment he immediately diagnosed her with the collapsed arch. He prescribed inserts. Wearing the inserts and special exercises helped her recover. This last fall season, her cross country team made it to the Minnesota State Cross Country meet. We will be forever grateful to the care she received and will always recommend them to family and friends!

My “back” story started in February 2022. My pain started in my right hip and radiated down my right leg. As the weeks went by, the pain in my right hip and leg continued to increase. The pain increased to the point that it became very difficult to get out bed, stand from a sitting position, or walk any distance longer than a block. I attempted other treatment options, including Chiropractic treatments, to try and relieve the pain with no success. I turned to Twin Cities Orthopedics for help. I was diagnosed with instability at L 4-5, which shocked me since I had no back pain. I had a spinal injection, oral steroids, and physical therapy. These produced mild improvement but the pain returned. I met with Dr. Hoel and immediately felt confident in him. He had extensively reviewed my case and images and explained to me point by point what was going on with my back. We discussed my options and his recommendations. I felt it was a real patient-doctor relationship keeping my best interest in mind. I’m very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and with the care I received from Dr. Hoel and his staff. I would highly recommend him. He will take very good care of you!

In April and November of 2022, I had my long overdue knees replaced by Dr. Chris Meyer and his great staff at TCO. I am only 1 week into recovery with my second replacement and I am so grateful to have Dr. Meyer and TCO execute everything perfectly. I know the process ahead takes plenty of hard work and time, but I couldn’t ask for a better team than Dr. Meyer, Sommer, Tammy, and Greg and the crew at the TCO Performance Center for expert PT.
Many thanks!

I had back surgery on November 8, 2022 by Dr. Rick Davis. He performed an anterior interbody lumbar spinal fusion cage on my back because I have degenerative disc disease. So far I am doing well on my recovery. I think he did a wonderful job.

For a very long time, I suffered continuous pain in foot to the point where I couldn’t walk without complaint. Dr. Holthusen performed surgery and made my life better. I can walk again. Thank you Dr. Holthusen!
