My total knee replacement with Dr. Kelly went well and physical therapy is a grind but I’m getting there. I am gaining range of motion and strength every day!

From the first time I met with Dr. Arntson, I was treated with great care. The procedure was well explained and possible results were explained, both good and bad, for me to make an informed decision on surgery. Everything went smoothly with both knee replacement surgeries. Dr. Arntson made me feel well cared for and safe. I trusted his judgement and did not feel afraid. I am very happy with my experience.

A quick note to express my gratitude on the tremendous job Dr. Kelly did on my rotator cuff surgeries. Two weeks ago I was on a beach, throwing a football with my son, and it was the first time in 25 years that activity was pain-free. I have resumed all of my desired physical activities and cannot thank Dr. Kelly enough.

I am now at 6 weeks post-op from a total knee replacement with Dr. Christopher Meyer and I am certainly feeling as good as I did six weeks pre-op. I expect I will recover endurance and increase muscle tone as I continue to work back into shape. I’ve had knee problems since the age of 14 and have had three surgeries before this one. I am now 56. I feel that six weeks from now, with the consistent work and positive mental attitude, I will have more use of the lower body and better overall quality of life then I have had for many years.

Dr. Kelly and Lindsay made my knee replacement surgery a very comfortable and successful procedure. Before surgery, I was not able to do the physical activities that I wanted and fixing my knee has made it possible to do almost anything I want. I would highly recommend their care. They helped my decide the right time in my life to get the surgery done.

My experience with Dr. Michael Meisterling and his entire team was excellent. Dr. Meisterling is a very skilled surgeon. He has assembled a remarkable team. Each and everyone one of them I found to be skilled, kind, considerate and helpful in every way. My left knee replacement was on 11-24-20 at Osceola Medical Center. My right knee replacement was on 1-19-21 at Lakeview Hospital. Both facilities were also excellent. If I were to give Dr. Meisterling a score of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, I would give him a 10+. Myrna J.

Dr. Ockuly met me on a short notice appointment, following my primary physician’s referral on the same day. He was knowable and acknowledging of my urgency and impatience for answers to rehabilitation or surgical repair of my broken shoulder. He recommended surgery for the best, cleanest, and most efficient result in getting me back on track to my active lifestyle as soon as possible. It was my first surgical procedure in 48 years of my life and it went very well. He was very communicative in follow-up and referral to skilled rehabilitation experts. I was pain free within a couple weeks of surgery and am now back to full activity and strength 6 months post-surgical repair of my broken clavicle. Thank you TCO team.

I have battled with knee pain most of my life. At 15 years old, I tore my right ACL in a softball injury. Back in the 80’s, parents simply didn’t run their children into the doctor. And as a softball catcher, knee protectors were not what they are today. My parents had me treated with chiropractor care, which worked, but my knee was never the same. I had two arthroscopic procedures on my right knee for tears and unidentified floating objects, by a former orthopedic surgeon. In the summer of 2019, I had a pretty significant motorcycle accident and had a de-gloving injury to my left knee. It was very painful. I had one surgery that only temporarily relieved the pain.

In September of 2020, Dr. Peterson recommended a total knee replacement. I was nervous, but Dr. Peterson had done several of my parents’ orthopedic replacements and I knew how well they recovered, so I opted for the replacement. It’s been the best decision I’ve ever made. After 5 months, my left knee feels so good I sometimes forget it’s artificial. Dr. Peterson and his team are outstanding and are the best in their field. I am having my right knee replaced next month and I have no fears, worries, or anticipation of it not going just as well as the first replacement. I highly recommend Dr. Peterson and his whole team. I can’t thank them nearly enough for giving my pain free life back. I am 53 years old now.

I had shoulder surgery with Dr. Ridley. After my surgery, there were no issues and the pain I had is completely gone. I’ll be back to work in 3 months. Thank you Dr. Ridley!

I went in to see Dr. Hunt after living with an arthritic left shoulder for a few years. The pain was getting to the point where I couldn’t do everyday tasks or exercise like I used to. My x-rays confirmed I had severe osteoarthritis, as well as bone on bone in the joint. Dr. Hunt spent time explaining what was going on and what we could do about it. He was very attentive to my concerns and I felt at ease with him after my diagnosis. I had surgery on 12/15/20 and was able to come home the same day. Dr. Hunt replaced my shoulder joint with stemless components, as well as repairing a rotator cuff and a torn bicep tendon. I am now approximately two months post-op and the pain has disappeared. My physical therapy is going well, as I regain range of motion and strength in my repaired shoulder. I am very grateful to Dr. Hunt & staff, as well as the people at Abbott NW Hospital, for all they have done for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone having shoulder issues.
