Dr. Mark Fischer saw me quickly and scheduled surgery in 2 days. I had a horribly fractured wrist that needed 2 plates and 10 screws to repair. He was a wonderful technician with great bedside manner. I healed with no infection or complications. Therapy has helped get me close to normal. It has been 7 weeks. I would recommend him highly.

I just wanted to take a moment to let anyone interested in hand surgery to consult with Dr. Amy Moeller at Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO). I, and my family, have had to utilize TCO on a number of occasions, and then recently I required surgery on my hand. Dr. Amy Moeller was recommended to me, and subsequently, she performed very successful surgery on my hand. I cannot speak highly enough about her abilities, as well as the attitude and performance of her team – from greeting/scheduling, to surgical environment, to the surgery itself and after-care. And I would have to emphasize her “bedside manner” – Dr. Moeller is outstanding in listening, understanding and relating. I have in the past done some consulting concerning operating room environments and safety – and hers was exemplary. Should anyone reading this need hand surgery, Dr. Moeller is the finest.

I am in the Bloomington area on business. On the morning of March 11, 2019, I slipped on black ice and knew immediately that I had broken my wrist. Not only did the broken wrist upset and frighten me, but being from out of town, I knew nothing about what doctors that I would end up seeing or the quality of care I would receive. From my experience in the Fairview Ridges Emergency Department to the staff in the Twin Cities Orthopedics surgery center and beyond, I have had care so excellent, it really was beyond my expectations. Dr. Olmsted and physical therapist Matt are number 1 super heroes in my book. I would write more expressing my praise but typing one key at a time with my left hand hinders my ability to do so. I will leave it at this. Should you need care such as this, get in to see this wonderful team if you can. You won’t regret it.

Dr. Koch did my surgery, she is wonderful! A very professional woman with a warm and comforting demeanor. Explains everything and is a good listener. I have already started to refer my family to her.

I fractured my wrist two days before Christmas. I am extremely grateful that Dr. Gesensway and the TCO staff were so thoughtful, proactive, and organized that I was able to have surgery during the short holiday week rather than waiting 10 days. Dr. Gesensway is very personable and an excellent surgeon. My healing process was so much faster than my previous wrist fracture. (Yes, I must be a klutz or maybe just have bad luck when it comes to snow and ice.) He is also a good teacher; I valued having an understanding of my injury and the treatment involved. I especially appreciated how he would repeat certain instructions during post-op appointments. There was no second guessing myself when I wondered what I can or should not do.

I am very thankful that I received such outstanding care from Dr. Gesensway at Twin Cities Orthopedics. He is a true professional and a superior surgeon. My healing has come along so much quicker than expected due to his skills. I have never fractured a wrist before (Colles fracture) but from the minute I walked in the door and met Dr. Gesensway, I suspected I was in for a good experience. I was by no means disappointed in any of the initial or follow-up care he and his team provided. Many thanks to David, Julia, Laura, and many others with whom I have had the pleasure to interact as a result of the bad fall I took on the ice. Thanks to all of you!

I would recommend Dr. O‘Keefe and Nathan to my friends and family. Dr. O’Keefe and Nathan were very informative on how the surgery was needed, my right thumb didn’t respond to the shots anymore. Surgery went well and PT has gone really well. They have been complemented by other surgical results. Little or no pain. Do what the Dr. says and the results are great!

Dr. Bakker is knowledgeable, patient, caring, positive, and encouraging. I fractured my wrist in three places and was terrified to even think about surgery. From the very first appointment I had with Dr. Bakker I felt at ease and encouraged that the process would be okay. He recommended for me to have surgery and get a plate and screws in my wrist. Once he thoroughly explained the procedure and the recovery time I immediately felt confident moving forward. He very much advises what is best for you and your health, he does not push or pressure you to make a decision.
His team is amazing, I cannot rave about them enough. From start to finish they made me feel like I could have surgery all over again and be completely comfortable. They have great personalities and are always positive, they will not move forward with anything until they explain what they are doing and why they are doing it.
Once the surgery was completed, I got a call the date after not only from the care nurse but also from Dr. Bakker himself which is very impressive and made me feel even more taken care of. They also did a great job at helping me get set up with therapy appointments immediately following. I am so thankful I got Dr. Bakker and that he was encouraging throughout it all. I would recommend him and his team to anyone!

Extremely pleased, this was my second carpal tunnel surgery first done by another provider. Dr. Bakker did this one and I cannot say enough nice things about this experience. Dr Bakker is very personable and caring. Thank you.

I only have positive comments to say about Dr. Bakker. He’s an expert in his profession. His skill and advice on rehab were spot on. I was very fortunate to have found him to help me gain back my quality of life. I would “go beyond” highly recommending him to anyone who needs care in the area of his expertise. Thank you Dr. Bakker for getting me to where I am.
