My superior capsular reconstruction by Dr. Norberg was great! The surgery was very successful and I am very happy with the results.

I first met Dr. Murar in the Fairview Southdale Hospital ER in early February of 2018. My husband brought me in after a fall that resulted in a traumatic injury to my shoulder. Dr. Murar explained the extent and seriousness of my injury and that because of the type of fracture, he recommended a reverse total shoulder replacement. He offered me support and encouragement in the face of such a big surgery.
My family told me how generous Dr. Murar was with his time when he met with them after surgery. He made sure that they had all their questions answered and he did not seem in a hurry. My daughter was impressed at how encouraged I was after talking through everything with Dr. Murar in the ER. Clearly, Dr. Murar is able to communicate in a difficult and serious situation and help his patients understand the best plan for the best outcome.
Throughout my recovery I always felt that Dr. Murar was available and accessible if I had questions or concerns. This was especially important to me during the early days of my recovery, I never felt like I was left to myself to try to figure things out. The entire TCO team – Dr. Murar along with care coordinator Kelly, TCO physical therapists Kevin and Nate gave me the support, guidance and tools that I needed to keep making progress.
Today I am almost at the one year mark since my surgery and I am strong and have returned to a full and active lifestyle, spending time with my husband, children, grandchildren and friends.
I am very grateful for what Dr. Murar has done for me and I highly recommend Dr. Murar to anyone who has an orthopedic need.

I broke my collarbone right before Christmas and there were other health issues that caused me to fall. While they weighed heavily on my mind, Dr. Bakker and his prompt, professional, and expert care did not. His care coordinator scheduled surgery right away. Throughout the whole process, Dr. Bakker engaged with me as a person rather than an object which some practitioners can do sometimes without even realizing it. He answered all my questions with patience and gave me the confidence that all would be well. It was! I am healing fast and following his aftercare plan to a tee because….I trust him. He also let me know about his observations about the health of my bones. I was able to arrange for DEXA scan promptly and begin to find other measures to avoid further complications. Thank you, Dr. Bakker!

In a consultation, it was determined that I needed a reverse total right shoulder replacement. I have never heard of this procedure and was quite apprehensive. The very personable Dr. Conner and Shawn, his care coordinator, were very reassuring regarding the surgery, rehab, and recovery. And it all went as smoothly as they had predicted. I’m very thankful for Dr. Conner’s surgical skill and for the excellent follow-up care by the rehab staff. I have now regained nearly full range of motion and strength in that shoulder and arm with no pain.

Dr. Conner understood my concerns about my shoulder replacement surgery prior to the procedure. He answered any questions I had about the procedure and the healing process and any questions I had after surgery. He showed me my post-op pictures and my healing process went well and I had no pain after surgery from day 2 post-op.

I had a 95% tear in a rotator cuff which was severely limiting my activities. Dr. Norberg did the repair in about 1 hour and after about four months of rehab I was able to resume most activities, the most important being golfing with no issues during or after.

My husband has suffered with Parkinson’s Disease since he was 44 years old. The constant shaking for 13 years has damaged his knee and shoulder joints, causing extreme pain. He is not a surgical candidate and refuses all opioid pain meds. Dr. Holmes injects his joints a few times a year, which has enabled my husband to still enjoy fishing and hunting. Thank you Dr. Holmes!

In the fall of ’17, I fell on my right shoulder and really ripped my right rotator cuff. The arm and shoulder barely moved and when I tried to use it there was intense pain. Saw Dr. Norberg and, first, he suggested a reverse shoulder. I felt kind of iffy about that and so he suggested the SCR (Superior Capsular Reconstruction) which was a fairly new procedure. Dr. Norberg was a miracle worker. November 12 I had surgery and a little more than year later I have no pain, great flexibility, and strength. I need to work on that a bit more. Almost painless, and I’m a big baby, from the beginning. Dr. Norberg is encouraging, up beat, and has a sense of fun which doesn’t mean he can’t be serious. I am so impressed with this man’s skills. And even though I am 72, the man never treated me as if I was old. I cannot recommend him enough if you want the SCR surgery. He has a terrific PA, also.

Had SCR (Superior Capsular Reconstruction) on my left shoulder with Dr. Frank Norberg on May 22, 2018 due to a complete tear of my supraspinatus and other damage to the shoulder joint. I am 29 weeks out and my shoulder feels great. Dr. Norberg did a great job with the surgery and answering my questions about the procedure and the recovery. I have full range of motion and I am back to about 95% of my strength in the shoulder, but I am confident that I will get back to 100% as time goes by and I finish out my physical therapy.
