Dr. Samuel Carlson recently performed my right hip replacement surgery, and I am so thankful for his expert knowledge and surgical skill as I was up and walking with ease and comfort soon after. Dr. Carlson took the time to carefully listen to me, explain my treatment options and answer all my questions and concerns. I cannot convey enough thanks or positivity about Dr. Samuel Carlson’s outstanding care before, during, and after the hip replacement. It is great to walk about without struggling at each step. Thank you again Dr. Samuel Carlson and staff.

I recently developed an excruciatingly painful condition (a herniated L4-L5 disc and pinched nerve) in my lower back that rendered me unable to walk without crutches. We contacted Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) on a Thursday afternoon and described the condition. They were able to access my test data and arrange an appointment to see Dr. Eric Deal right away on Monday. After evaluating the situation, Dr. Deal patiently explained the condition and the possible treatment options. We decided on surgery, and they were able to schedule me right away on that Thursday at their Eagan location. The surgery went without a hitch, and I was able to walk almost immediately, only needing the assistance of a cane for balance for the first few weeks.

I can honestly say that working with TCO was the most positive medical experience I have ever had. Every member of the TCO staff was completely professional and genuinely caring at every step. The facilities were pleasant and modern, and most conveniently located. The anesthesiologist (Dr. Anderson) listened carefully to my concerns, and we were able to avoid any nausea or allergic reactions which have historically been a real problem for me. Dr. Deal and his team did an incredible job with the surgery and the aftercare. Following this rather complex procedure, I had almost no pain and required no medications beyond ordinary Tylenol. I simply cannot say enough good things about the technical expertise and genuine care this group provided, and I wholeheartedly recommend TCO without reservation for anyone needing orthopedic care.

What a fantastic experience I had yesterday with my shoulder! After having a rather lackluster experience with my primary care doctor, Dr. Williamson and his colleagues really knocked the ball out of the park. Thanks!

Dr. Ridley repaired my rotator cuff, so when my son had a sports injury a couple years later, we decided to see Dr. Ridley again. He explained everything thoroughly, was personable and able to speak specifically to getting back to sports following the surgery. My son had surgery on a Thursday, which went very smoothly. He experienced minimal pain and was back to school on Monday. His physical therapy and recovery are going great 5-6 weeks later, which we are very thankful for! Everyone on Dr. Ridley’s team, from the nurses to his physical therapist, are friendly and did an outstanding job.

This past March I won the High School Olympic Weightlifting State Championship for the 67kg weight class. I had a final snatch of 68 kg and clean jerk of 91kg. I was able to come out on top with all of my hard work. I had only been cleared for sports four months prior, so this is a real testament to what you can do when you put your mind to it. I also dove back into ultimate frisbee and have easily become a vital player on the field with my speed and agility. I’d like to thank Dr. Johnson for giving me the opportunity to make these great things happen after my knee surgeries.

Dr. Meisterling and his team were outstanding for my hip replacement procedure and my postoperative care! I have no pain, and the rehab went extremely well. If anyone is thinking of having this procedure done, I highly recommend Dr. Meisterling and his team! My family and I would like to thank them for giving me a huge part of my life back! The ability to spend time with my family and friends outdoors and not be in any discomfort is priceless!

Dr. Engasser has performed a couple of surgeries on me now. His warm personality and confidence put any concerns I had about my procedure at ease. He has certainly corrected my feet to the point where I’m leading a full life again. I trust him to give me the truth and perform the care to the highest degree possible.

If you’re seeking a consultation for a shoulder concern, you must schedule an appointment with Dr. Hess! He took the time to listen to my concerns and asked several follow-up questions to ensure he fully understood my issues. I was suffering from calcific tendonitis, and we initially decided to try cortisone injections. Unfortunately, my condition was too advanced, so Dr. Hess recommended surgery as the best course of action. He thoroughly explained all possibilities and set clear expectations, making me feel completely comfortable with the decision. Despite my apprehension about undergoing surgery for the first time, Dr. Hess and his team treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism.

Dr. Leafblad was amazing from start to finish. He was very professional and clear with what the problem was and how he was going to fix it. I was very happy with the process, and my shoulder has improved a lot since the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Leafblad for any treatment.

Very quick surgery, recovery time was minimal. After 6 weeks I feel just about back to normal.
