Dr. Comfort did an excellent job navigating the right course of action, involving a very difficult diagnosis of my back/hip issue. He determined a hip replacement was not the right course of action, which likely saved me a lot of pain and recovery time on what could have been an unnecessary operation.

My experience with Dr. O’Neill and the EXCEL Program team could not have been any better. From the preparation to surgery and follow-up, things exceeded my expectations. Speaking from experience, if you are in need of a hip replacement, this is your guy!

I have danced competitively for almost 15 years. After six months of chronic hip pain, I went to see Dr. Ridley. I was afraid that surgery was going to cut my final year of dancing short, but then he offered a treatment plan to relieve my pain and keep me dancing. The PRP injection has truly changed my life. From being in constant pain and unable to do what I love, I was at an all-time low. The PRP injection worked so incredibly well and eliminated 80% of my pain with no major surgery or pain medication.

I had been having pain in my right hip and left knee that was not subsiding. My family doctor referred me to Dr. Ryan for further evaluation. I am more than impressed with Dr. Ryan and her logical, pragmatic approach to determining not only the cause of the pain but also how to manage it going forward. She was very easy to talk to and offered a number of options for treatment. After the first appointment I felt like I have known Dr. Ryan for years. I cannot say enough about how good she is to work with and would highly recommend Dr. Ryan when seeking a solution to your knee and hip issues.

Dr. Schmiesing gave clear explanations during every step of the injection. He and his care team, Zach and Lauren, have very caring personalities. Within minutes I was walking out of the clinic. I would highly recommend Dr. Schmiesing.

This past spring, I developed some general hip pain. Within one week, I was able to schedule an appointment at a convenient time and location with Dr. Ridley. During my first appointment, Dr. Ridley took the time to get to know me, not only as a patient but as a person. He listened to my hip concerns and I felt understood and acknowledged. During that same appointment, they did an X-ray and Dr. Ridley carefully explained what the x-ray showed. He presented me with a few options, and we decided to follow up and move forward with an MRI to have a more concrete and concise diagnosis. Within one week, I was able to get my MRI and follow-up scheduled.

Similar to my first appointment, Dr. Ridley’s kindness and professionalism were clear and apparent. He explained in detail what the imaging displayed and that the MRI showed a labral tear in my left hip. He presented both surgical and non-surgical choices and explained the pros and cons of each decision in a very non-judgmental way. I did not feel rushed to make a decision and was given information and knowledge to make the best decision. Eventually, I did decide to go through with surgery.

Again, Dr. Ridley carefully and compassionately explained what surgery and recovery would look like. He was very accommodating and found a surgery date that worked for me. The day before my surgery, Dr. Ridley took time out of his day to call me and check in. I’ve had a few surgeries in the past, and he has been the first and only doctor to call me prior to surgery. That small gesture meant a lot to me and again, exemplifies his professional and caring demeanor. The day of surgery, he took time to answer any final questions from me and my parents. The surgery went as perfectly as one could hope and I’ve had minimal to zero pain during recovery and beyond.

I would immediately recommend Dr. Ridley to anyone who is working through hip, shoulder, or knee pain/issues. In the short amount of time that I have known Dr. Ridley, his deep care for his patients is abundantly clear. I am forever grateful for the amazing care I received from Dr. Ridley, his staff, and TCO.

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.
