I absolutely cannot say enough good about Dr. Eggert and his team, Adam & Tammy. My son tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus, two weeks into his junior-year football season. Dr. Eggert performed the surgery to repair his knee. Dr. Eggert is knowledgeable, a skilled surgeon and empathetic to the patient and their situation. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Eggert always took the time to answer our questions to our understanding. We knew going into the surgery that the road to recovery would be long. The communication and follow-up between Dr. Eggert, his team, the physical therapists and my son was excellent. While I’d hope we don’t need his services in the future, I wouldn’t see anyone else!

I had a lot of cleanup surgeries over the past 43 years. When it was time for the total knee operation, Dr. Knowlan did an awesome job. I had no pain and bed side matter was great. Thanks Dr. Knowlan!

My son was a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Army, stationed in Honolulu, when he suffered a severe knee injury. He had 2 unsuccessful surgeries over 2 years in the Army and was eventually medically retired. My son was extremely active prior to his injury, but after the injury and surgeries, he was left unable to do the things he enjoyed. Just a casual walk was painful and difficult.
After some extensive research, we found Dr. LaPrade and TCO. We made the trip to Minnesota, had a successful surgery and one week’s worth of physical therapy, and then returned to South Carolina. Fast forward 8 weeks, and my son is walking pain free, once again optimistic about his future, looking forward to resuming an active life, and pursuing his post-military career.
The thank you list is extensive, and I’ll surely miss someone. Let’s just say it is most definitely a team effort, and Dr. LaPrade and his entire team were a God-send. Thank you for giving him back the quality of life he deserves.

Every day I get up and say “NO MORE PAIN!” At age 77 I’m back to doing the activities I enjoy! It wasn’t easy but the outcome was terrific! My love of ice skating and snowshoeing is now in sight. Dr. Owen O’Neill and his staff were so patient answering all of my questions from the first visit, after surgery, and during the follow up visits. I have one more knee to go but with prayers and Dr. O’Neill, I’ll be ready!

In May of 2019 I had a total knee operation done at a different practice. Three months later I was having issues and went back to the same doctor. He said he didn’t know what it was and that I should come back in one year. I returned twice in June of 2020. Again, my doctor said he didn’t know what it was and that I should get a 2nd opinion. Then he left the room.
That’s when my therapist from TCO recommended that I see Dr. Owen O’Neill. Dr. O’Neill recommended arthroscopy. I had the procedure and now the pain, crunching, etc. is gone. I will never go to another practice. Dr. O’Neill, TCO and the entire staff have been a blessing. I wish that I could give them all a hug.

I first saw Dr. Norgard in 2012 after a motorcycle accident where I received multiple injuries including a fractured hand. Over the years I have continue to see him for multiple reasons which has included consultations and multiple surgeries. I have been diagnosed with arthritis in both hands and Dr. Norgard treated both hands. He has followed and provided care on and off over the last few years and when the time came I trusted him to do a total knee replacement. He is extremely thorough and discussed all options with me. He took his time and was very thorough. He has also great respect in the decisions that I did make after his consultations. In addition to his medical expertise, Dr. Norgard is very kind and has a gentle manner to him. Not only will I continue to see him, I have recommended him to my family members.

I have been treated by Dr. Meyer for years, he has helped me with multiple body aches and pains. I am more than pleased with the outcome of both knee replacements and shoulder rotator cuff repair. I am now able to do just about anything compared to before I was very limited in my activities. My follow-up care has always been great. He is a caring provider, I would highly recommended Dr. Meyer.

I would highly recommend Dr. Meyer if you are needing a joint replacement. Dr. Meyer is a wonderful doctor, he has provided me with a lot of information, before and after my total knee arthroplasty. He took the time to listen and answer my questions. My knee is doing so better now than before surgery. He is a very thorough doctor.

Total left knee replacement on July 23, 2020. Dr. Brian O’Neill did a fantastic surgery! I let his team know that I could not handle narcotics, without getting severely sick after surgery. They took that information and decided that they would do a spinal on me instead. I said YES! It will be three weeks this Thursday, and all I’ve used was Tylenol and ibuprofen, and now I’m down to Tylenol when needed. Dr. O’Neill is very professional, very kind, a great listener and made me feel calm. The staff he has is also great, answering any questions I had before and after surgery. My bandage was removed after one week, and the incision looked the best I’ve ever seen. They did a great job stitching me up and I’m already ahead of the game with therapy. There’s less and less pain each day, but it’s good pain as some therapy can be harsh but is well worth it. I can’t say enough about Dr. O’Neill and his God given talent!

I can’t say enough about Dr. Edward Szalapski as a Doctor. My family doctor referred me to him when I needed my right hip replaced in 1998. He said he would not send me to anyone that he would not send his own family member to. Dr Szalapski fit that bill, he is a caring down to earth person. I remember telling him he had to do a good job because my grandkids wanted to play with their grandma. You know he cares about his patients when in November 1998 after having my right hip replaced, he came to see how I was doing late in the evening at the hospital.
Then in November 2009 I had my left knee replacement, left hip replacement October 2010, right hip socket replaced 2018 after 20 years. Then Dr. Szalapski did my carpel tunnel right hand in April, 2019 and the carpel tunnel left hand in May, 2019. I believe in his work so much I changed my health carrier as his office was not going to be in the network. This year I needed my right knee replaced and I am so glad I can still have Dr. Szalapski as my Orthopedic physician.
