I can not say enough about what a great experience I had with Dr. Moen and his receptionist Steph! I was visiting family from out of state when I tore my meniscus. Dr. Moen quickly fit me into his schedule when he heard. He determined that I would need surgery and had me scheduled for surgery 2 days later. His receptionist Steph called me, I’m sure after hours, to set things up that same day! She was so helpful answering all my questions and quickly emailing and/or calling me back. I unfortunately was not able to have surgery because of Covid. Still…Steph was AMAZING at helping me get info to my ortho in Oregon and continuing to help me even though she knew they wouldn’t be doing my surgery. This was above and beyond what I expected and it really brings me to tears realizing how great I was treated. If I’m ever in the area again when an emergency knee problem hits, I know who I’ll call. Thanks Steph!!

Dr. Chris Meyer is a very pro surgeon. He doesn’t waste words but knows his business well. I would recommend his services and also his assistant Sommer Vaughn, PA-C. Choose this group for your surgery and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It took me less than a year to completely recover from my knee replacement. I’m not running marathons, but I can make it up stairs without pain now!!

I came to Dr. Szalapski with a lifetime of knee pain. I had my first scope at 13 years old and I’m 40 now. Because of my age I had been dismissed often for replacements. Dr. Szalapski took the time to actually listen to my issues and care about me, as a person, not just a statistic. Over the last three years, he has replaced both of my knees. I’ve never been so excited to play ball again, or ride bike with my kids. Thanks to Dr. Szalapski and his care team of Tracy Chisholm, PA & his medical office guru Jessica, this team makes it almost seem easy. They are wonderful to work with and truly care about you as an individual. They have changed my life for the better. They can help you too!!

THIS doctor is the REAL DEAL. No “snake oil promises”, Dr. Asp gives you the entire truth and does the VERY BEST WORK. No long waits, no rushing out the door (or worse has his hand on the doorknob when talking to you). He takes time to answer questions, his staff is cheerful and accommodating. NOT TO MENTION THE STAFF AT THE MAPLE GROVE SURGERY CENTER IS THE BOMB!! I had one knee replaced by a doctor who retired by the time I needed the other one done. I selected a surgeon that was recommended by my PCP and had my knee replaced. For 2 years, I was plagued with pain, and it steadily got worse. Two other doctors said they wouldn’t touch it because they didn’t do the original surgery. He looked at everything it might possibly be and suggested arthroscopy that he has had much success with. (God, I hope I spelled that right). Anyhow, 2 days afterwards, I was walking with no pain, no cane, and did not even need drugs for pain, Tylenol is all I used. I must HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH HIM. He under-promises, and OVER delivers. He is caring, efficient, and highly skilled! He is not a salesman, he is a surgeon who is gifted and treats his patients as he would want to be treated.

Dr. Lewis was wonderful in the replacing and recovery on my knee. Very compassionate and always took time to listen to my concerns. I will highly recommend him to my family and friends.

I had a knee replacement with Dr. Arntson on June 2, 2020. The surgery went so well, I cannot say anything bad about the care I received from Dr. Arntson and his team. It was so good and I get to go back to work on July 13. I feel great.

I first saw Dr. Marek for my broken knee cap, a shot in my hand for my trigger finger, then trigger finger surgery and when my daughter broke her arm. Since it’s been a few years, of course I need to go back for my other hand and about to call today. In other words, my family and I are doing all we can to keep Dr. Marek busy! Ha, and we trust him implicitly.

Dr. O’Neill is a fantastic surgeon. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic care. He is extremely knowledgeable as well as compassionate and kind. I underwent a total knee replacement on 3/2/20 with much anxiety prior to surgery but after meeting with Dr. O’Neill and his team I felt so reassured and confident going forward. Dr. O’Neill was very attentive during my care suite stay and with my follow-up care. Dr. O’Neill was readily available with any questions I had during my home recovery. The EXCEL program is a wonderful program with great care from nurses, physical therapists and Dr O’Neill. I am SO SO glad I found Dr. O’Neill and went with the EXCEL program instead of the hospital route. PT staff were great and the RNs and coordinators kindly took care of my requests promptly. My recovery was great as well. At the end of week one my flexion was 110 degrees and 140 degrees by beginning of the 3rd week! I am now able to walk without pain! Dr. Owen O’Neill IS THE best surgeon. I can not recommend him highly enough! #1 Physician.

I was a senior at Lake Superior State University playing division 1 college hockey for the school when, during a hockey game, I tore my ACL. The injury ended my season right away, being already halfway done with it. I still had an opportunity to play after college and needed to get back before camps started in the summer for exposure. My family doctor referred me to Dr. Andrea Saterbak with TCO with high remarks for her work. My first impressions during a pre-surgical meeting absolutely blew me away and I knew she would get me back. Dr. Saterbak and her team along with all of the TCO staff gave me all the tools and support to bounce back after the injury that ended my college career. Dr. Saterbak’s reputation is remarkable and I learned firsthand why. After sticking with her protocol and procedures, I am back to feeling where I was before my injury, if not better. I am able to make it to camps and tryouts to continue my hockey career. Dr. Saterbak and her team resemble exactly what it means to be professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Thank you to Dr. Saterbak and her team for helping me get back to playing the game I love.

I’m a longtime patient of TCO and have been since 2016. Dr. Jay Johnson did my total knee in April 2017 and my shoulder procedure was done by Dr. Edward W. Szalapski, MD in late January 2020. From day 1 to now, I couldn’t be happier with the competence, knowledge, professionalism and character of these two men, as well as the staff and physical therapists involved. All are VERY professional, courteous and prompt. I have a recurring back injury that I may have them look at next and I’ll put my trust in their capable hands yet again. Thank you for all you’ve done for me.
