Dr. Gerlach took the time before my surgery to explain the procedure and answered all my questions about before, during and after surgery. I did everything he told me to do and today I have no more numbness, pain, or scars. He made the whole thing so much easier than I had anticipated. He is amazing!

I can’t believe how great this surgery performed by Dr. Dieterle was! If I need my other shoulder replaced, I would do it in a heartbeat. My shoulder is as good as new! After surgery I had NO pain either!

I have broken my collar bone 3 times and needed surgery on 2 occasions. I have seen Dr. Norberg for all of my care and treatment. He has been excellent to work with. I couldn’t be happier with my results and my experience with him. He provides the best care, all around! Please go to him if you have any shoulder/collarbone issues!

Before surgery the pain was constant and I couldn’t do many normal things. The surgery was instant relief thanks to Dr. Dieterle. I am able to do my housework and many other activities including golf!

My surgery with Dr. Dieterle was to reattach my rotator cuff and bicep tendons. The surgery went well, completely restoring my strength and range of motion, eliminating the pain! Post-op sleeping up right was a little difficult, but a cushy recliner made a huge difference. The physical therapy was critical in my recovery. Do your PT!

My shoulder surgery went very well! If it wasn’t for Dr. Dieterle and the staff at TCO, I might not have been able to repair my injury.

Communication with my healthcare providers is key. With that said, I did initiate conversation with my surgeon, Dr. Dieterle, who is a wonderful listener and highly skilled doctor specializing in shoulder issues. I had trust in him as I learned about his history of performing successful rotator cuff procedures. He did not hurry me in asking my questions, nor dismiss me in any way of my concerns. Secondly, the anesthesiologist called me as I requested, I had airway issues in past surgeries, so I could discuss concerns for any potential breathing problems. He was so considerate and thanked me for the heads up. From time I walked into Lakeview Hospital, I was greeted courteously and respectfully. The nurse’s assistants and other providers made my experience well tolerated and the careful manner in which my extremity was handled allowed me to feel very little pain and recover with significantly less pain than anticipated. Thank you, I would utilize this same system of providers if needed!

In May is 2021 I was visiting my daughter in upper NY state. On what was supposed to be the last day of my visit, I tripped on uneven sidewalk in Kingston, NY. I was taken by ambulance to the Kingston Hospital for observation and X-rays. Two days later I flew back to Minneapolis in great pain! I fractured my right humerus. Dr. Norberg saw me early the next morning. We began the long and careful process of healing without surgery. Dr Norberg, his staff and the physical therapists at TCO, have given me the best of professional care, for which I am eternally grateful!

After my shoulder surgery with Dr. Dieterle, the pain is gone that was present for a long time. Physical therapy is crucial to recovery in range of motion and strength. It restored my ability to resume my daily routine.
