Dr. Michael Nemanich was patient and listened carefully to understand the issues I was having with my knees. He worked with me, informed me of the various options along the way, and allowed me to choose the path that I was most comfortable with. Ultimately, after trying other options, I went forward with knee replacement. Dr. Nemanich and his team were great to work with. They made me feel comfortable with the process and were very responsive when I had questions or concerns. I am now looking forward to enjoying my life to its fullest, once again!

After years of pain, I finally decided to look into knee surgery. A colleague referred me to Dr. Owen O’Neill and I am forever thankful that he did. Dr. O’Neill did a complete knee replacement for me and every aspect of it was professional and compassionate. Every appointment was on time, every communication from the team was excellent, and the surgery was such a success that I am going to have him correct my other knee. Dr. O’Neill not only changed my life but also my family’s lives. I am able to walk without pain and keep up with the family on vacations, and more. My overall attitude is so much better due to the lack of pain I had been experiencing for so many years. Do yourself a favor and stop putting the procedure off and take care of yourself with Dr. O’Neill. Your family will be glad you did.

I have been going to Dr. Holmes for years. He has given me cortisone shots, when necessary, for extreme pain on separate knees multiple times. I had one knee replaced 3 years ago and the other is now getting worse but we are trying to avoid surgery. Holmes is absolutely, hands-down the best shot giver I have ever encountered. He listens and provides alternative solutions with thorough explanations before we proceed. Even his assistant, Deanna, is top notch and a great listener. His sensitivity and shot-giving techniques are A+. It feels great! Wow!

I had pain in both of my knees and had a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. I finally called Dr. TJ Ridley. He provided a thorough examination and assessed my situation. He gave me injections in both knees and I haven’t had pain or soreness since! Thank you, Dr. Ridley, for your professionalism and knowledge. You are the best!!

Dr. Ridley is an excellent doctor because he listens to the patient. Dr. Ridley makes you feel as if he really cares. He’s not pretentious in the least. Both my wife and I go to him for the advice and help that we need. I highly recommend him.

I am 5 weeks out from surgery and still recovering but TCO prepared me exceptionally well for surgery. My recovery has been intense but I was aware it would be work and I intend to continue to ensure my success. All staff at TCO, including Dr. Kelly, have been professional, knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend TCO. At 5 weeks out from surgery, I see improvements each day. I know 3 and 6 months out and a year from now, I will be satisfied. Be prepared to commit to your surgery and do the post-surgery work required to achieve success.

February 16th, 2020 was a date I’ll never forget. Before this date, I was a very active individual. I went to the gym every day and I was constantly outdoors, exploring new activities. I had just joined a Jiu Jitsu club for a few months and was so excited to learn more about the sport. However, on February 16th, 2020, I tore my ACL. I was devastated. In the summer of 2020, I was supposed to graduate from the physical and last portion of my degree; and of course I was not able to. Many people who know me know I am very hopeful and positive and that is how I remained. I hoped it wasn’t a tear, until I received confirmation from the doctors I fully tore my ACL. I lost all hope. I was mentally and physically defeated, thinking about doing the things I wouldn’t be able to do anymore…or at least not for a while.
Thankfully, I had the best care team I could ever ask for at Twin Cities Orthopedics. My surgeon was Dr. Heikes, with her team, Callie Tosney and Megan Armstrong PA-C. My physical therapist was Braidy Solie. Without these individuals, my hope would have been lost during 9 months of rehab. With them, I gained confidence and hope that one day I will do what I love again. Each of them provided me with guidance and reassurance that I could get through the journey. They reminded me how strong and fierce I am. They pushed me to do things I never thought I would be able to do again.
Today, I have graduated from school and have accepted a position in my dream job. I am back to doing the things I loved to do. I continue to push myself to try new things and give 100% on everything because, one day, it could all be gone just like it was February 16th, 2020. I will be forever grateful for my team and everything they’ve done to get me back to where I am today.

My husband saw Dr. Brian Bjerke for a quadricep tendon rupture. We could not be more pleased with the entire process. It was a stressful time for us and Dr. Bjerke, and all of his staff, went out of their way to listen and explain things to us. We cannot say enough positive things. Dr. Bjerke, Andria, Katie and everyone that we encountered was professional, knowledgeable and kind. Thank you all so much.
