I had an old sports injury from high school that ultimately resulted in the complete laceration of both of my peroneal tendons in my right ankle. Prior to meeting Dr. Clair, I had severe pain and limped for two years. I had seen two other doctors and had two incorrect diagnoses in the process. The first time I met Dr. Clair, he gave me hope that I had not had before I met him. One year later, I am walking normal again for the first time in a very long time thanks to a successful procedure performed by Dr. Clair replacing my peroneal tendon(s) with donor tissue. I am very thankful that he helped me and would refer anyone to Dr. Clair in a heartbeat.

Knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring are words I would use to describe Dr. Cammack and his great staff. I am 6 months post-surgery and from pre-surgery to all the follow-ups during recovery I felt I was in the best possible hands. I never felt rushed and all my questions/concerns were treated with respect and thoughtful consideration. I’m still not 200% but because of how well Dr. Cammack communicates what to expect, I am able to take the incremental progression that at times can be slow in stride and not get to discouraged. Highly recommend!!!

Hi Dr. Seybold and team, thank you for the awesome experience with my procedure today. I have been at home with my foot up, on ice and watching TV. The whole procedure, from the Edina office visit all the way to the actual surgery was outstanding. From the intake, the planning, the smooth experience and use of technology, to the amazing care from the physicians and staff, shows that TCO is the best orthopedics facility and absolutely and unequivocally second to none anywhere. Please share this praise with everyone who was involved with my care and part of putting up with me today. Markus

Dr. Seybold is the greatest surgeon. I had been waiting Dr. Chris Coetzee for years, which was 2 years on the waiting list. His partner orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Chris Larson, recommended Dr. Seybold as equally great. Thus, I didn’t wait and went for him. My surgery went well. After the surgery, I made three follow-up visits. I am also very impressed with his nice personality and high care level. Highly recommended. Look no further!

Dr. Den Hartog did a fantastic job fixing my foot. As a nurse, I am very picky when choosing care for myself and my family. I have worked with a lot of doctors. I hate to admit, but I am often hard to please. Dr. Den Hartog is very skilled and knowledgeable. He is a great guy to talk to. He is kind and patient. He took his time in answering all my questions. I am very happy with my choice to have Dr. Den Hartog as my specialist and would highly recommend him!

I was visiting my rheumatologist and after looking at my feet, she recommended I see Dr. Scott McGarvey, Twin Cities Orthopedics Edina, to take a look. Before this day I’d had 3 foot surgeries for bunions and hammertoes. On a scale of 1-10, I was at a 9 with pain not being able to walk long distances. I couldn’t walk through any store without being in excruciating pain. I haven’t wore sandals and barely fit in extra wide shoes for years because my feet were so wide and the hammer toes were so protruding. For 20 years even after seeing other Doctors, my pain got progressively worse.
Before surgery with Dr. McGarvey, the pain was so intense all the way up my leg I couldn’t touch my leg without it hurting. After surgery, it was a 3 month recovery for each foot. I could see my foot getting back to normal as the weeks went by. I had no pain almost immediately after surgery. Today I am in NO pain at all, anywhere!! I wish I would’ve met you 20 years ago, Dr. McGarvey!!
Anyway, I would like to recommend Dr. Scott McGarvey to anyone that needs a foot or ankle surgery. He is a Doctor with the best bedside manners you could ask for. He is intelligent and knowledgeable and has been working in his field for many years. I can’t write this and not include Rhodora, Dr. McGarvey’s assistant. Rhodora is the best, she is on top of her game, assisting in many facets of the medical office. Rhodora is also the best with her patients, treating them with empathy and respect. I almost wish I had more feet (lol) to see them for. I will miss going in to visit and the high quality of work they both put out. Dr. McGarvey, Rhodora I can’t thank you enough!!!

We saw Dr. Cole because my daughter Riley (15), was experiencing acute pain in her left foot. She plays high school basketball and had a sharp, persistent pain that would not go away. Dr. Cole ordered x-rays because he suspected a stress fracture but they came back non-conclusive. He then suggested we do an MRI because he was suspicious the x-rays were not telling the whole story. We did the MRI and sure enough, there it was. I feel Dr. Cole went above and beyond to help diagnose Riley’s foot pain. I think most doctors would have said the x-ray didn’t show anything and been done. Dr. Cole explained his thoughts the entire way through the process. I felt like we were making informed decisions based on him taking the time to make sure we were educated. He was a very thoughtful, kind and effective doctor for us.
Not only is he a great doctor but he is a great guy! Riley is interested in becoming a doctor and during our time with Dr. Cole had asked him a few questions about his educational history and experiences. Dr. Cole took extra time to share his thoughts and feelings on how he became a doctor and some of his background. Riley left his office that day excited about her future as a doctor – amazed that he took the time to discuss his life with her. I just can’t say enough about how Dr. Cole took care of us. He took the time to really understand her background, which I think was instrumental to his diagnosis. He was a great doctor and a great role model for our daughter. Thanks, Dr. Cole!!

Dr. Vargas recently did a bunion/hammertoe surgery on both of my feet. The outcome of this surgery is even better than what I had hoped for. Dr. Vargas is a very compassionate and caring surgeon. He listens to his patients and provides them with the best care possible. This surgery is allowing me to resume the active lifestyle that I want and I am pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Vargas and his staff.

This is the second time I asked Dr. Clair to help me with arthritic foot problems. As with the first visit six years ago, Dr. Clair was thorough, easy to talk to, and devised a care plan I felt would work. I am an active 66 year old female, and wanted to be active again ASAP. I underwent surgery on both feet at the same time. My recovery has been remarkably pain free, and I am gaining more and more mobility. I still have a recovery period, but am confident the rest of it will go smoothly. I highly recommend Dr. Clair. I must also recommend the remarkable staff at TCO and Fairview Lakes in Wyoming.

My daughter Emily sustained an injury during basketball. We called TCO to get an appointment, and were able to be seen almost immediately. We first met with Fred, who genuinely showed compassion to Emily, and made her feel comfortable. He took the time to discuss the process which was about to take place to evaluate, and eventually treat the injury. We then met with Dr. Cole. He talked to Emily in a way which made her understand what was taking place, and kept her at ease. It was determined that Emily did have a fracture, and the TCO team went into action creating a plan. The care coordination was extraordinary. We met on regular intervals with Dr. Cole and his care team. Fred often followed up, in between visits, to understand our progress. I called Fred with questions, and received timely responses. The overall experience was fantastic. I know where will be will coming, should an event like this take place in the future.
