I am 5 weeks out from surgery and still recovering but TCO prepared me exceptionally well for surgery. My recovery has been intense but I was aware it would be work and I intend to continue to ensure my success. All staff at TCO, including Dr. Kelly, have been professional, knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend TCO. At 5 weeks out from surgery, I see improvements each day. I know 3 and 6 months out and a year from now, I will be satisfied. Be prepared to commit to your surgery and do the post-surgery work required to achieve success.

The total shoulder replacement process was initially communicated as taking the better part of a year. I feel thinks are going much better than I thought they would. The performance of all TCO staff, including Dr. Kelly, has been outstanding.

My whole experience with TCO has been great. From the doctor visits before and after surgery, to physical therapy, the entire staff took an interest in me and my recovery. When it comes time to fix my other knee, I will be back! Thank you Dr. O’Keefe and Dalton.

February 16th, 2020 was a date I’ll never forget. Before this date, I was a very active individual. I went to the gym every day and I was constantly outdoors, exploring new activities. I had just joined a Jiu Jitsu club for a few months and was so excited to learn more about the sport. However, on February 16th, 2020, I tore my ACL. I was devastated. In the summer of 2020, I was supposed to graduate from the physical and last portion of my degree; and of course I was not able to. Many people who know me know I am very hopeful and positive and that is how I remained. I hoped it wasn’t a tear, until I received confirmation from the doctors I fully tore my ACL. I lost all hope. I was mentally and physically defeated, thinking about doing the things I wouldn’t be able to do anymore…or at least not for a while.
Thankfully, I had the best care team I could ever ask for at Twin Cities Orthopedics. My surgeon was Dr. Heikes, with her team, Callie Tosney and Megan Armstrong PA-C. My physical therapist was Braidy Solie. Without these individuals, my hope would have been lost during 9 months of rehab. With them, I gained confidence and hope that one day I will do what I love again. Each of them provided me with guidance and reassurance that I could get through the journey. They reminded me how strong and fierce I am. They pushed me to do things I never thought I would be able to do again.
Today, I have graduated from school and have accepted a position in my dream job. I am back to doing the things I loved to do. I continue to push myself to try new things and give 100% on everything because, one day, it could all be gone just like it was February 16th, 2020. I will be forever grateful for my team and everything they’ve done to get me back to where I am today.

My mother, Nancy, was a patient of Dr. Harris in June of 2016. He and his staff performed a life changing operation. Dr. Harris is an honorary member of the family…only if he wants to be!

My husband saw Dr. Brian Bjerke for a quadricep tendon rupture. We could not be more pleased with the entire process. It was a stressful time for us and Dr. Bjerke, and all of his staff, went out of their way to listen and explain things to us. We cannot say enough positive things. Dr. Bjerke, Andria, Katie and everyone that we encountered was professional, knowledgeable and kind. Thank you all so much.

I have been in the orthopedic industry for over 20 years and have friends and family ask for referrals on a daily basis. My close friend has two sons that are high level athletes in baseball and football. They were dealing with sports injuries and wanted my advice. I referred them to Dr. Ridley and they ended up needing surgery and had fantastic outcomes. Why Dr. Ridley, they asked? First off, he is fellowship trained from the world renowned Steadman Clinic in Vail. He is a fantastic surgeon, ethical in his indications for surgery, was a collegiate athlete in two sports and a patient himself with sports injuries. I ended up seeing Dr. Ridley with a hip problem and he was conservative in his treatment. He recommended physical therapy and I’m doing fantastic. When it comes to sports injuries Dr. Ridley is who I refer all my friends and family to.

The TCO team was excellent in addressing all of my concerns and following up on continued care. Dr. Kelly did surgery on my right shoulder and it was truly a life changer for me. I’m one year out and feel like I’m back on track to full recovery.

I have had a hip replacement and knee replacement with Dr. Owen O’Neill. Both procedures ended with excellent results. If you are considering either procedure, I would recommend Dr. O’Neill.

In high school I played hockey, baseball, and football. Sadly, I only got to play a few seasons of each sport, due to injuries I sustained. I tore my meniscus in baseball during the summer, as I was entering my freshman year. I was unable to play football this year, but with the help of TCO and my physical therapist, Sam Arnold, I was able to come back and play again. I started on the varsity football team my sophomore year, but halfway into the season I tore my ACL and meniscus. I went through the same process with TCO and came back the next year better than ever.
My junior year, I played varsity hockey and football for my school, but due to COVID-19 I didn’t get to play baseball. I had a great year going for me – all conference and being named captain for both hockey and football teams. Going into my senior year, I was looking forward to playing all of my sports and being a leader in all of them. Once again, I tore my ACL and meniscus in football. I didn’t think I was going to be able to play my senior hockey season and I was devastated. Luckily, I found out that rehabilitation before surgery is an option and I decided to play my senior hockey season with a torn ACL and meniscus. With the help of my physical therapist, Sam, I played my whole hockey season and went all conference again. I finally got surgery after the season and I am on the road to recovery right now.
I am very thankful for TCO and everything they have done for me in my recovery. I was able to play my favorite sport during my senior year of high school and I was extremely thankful for that. Through my experiences at TCO, I have decided to go into the field of physical therapy and study kinesiology at the University of Minnesota.
