I recently developed an excruciatingly painful condition (a herniated L4-L5 disc and pinched nerve) in my lower back that rendered me unable to walk without crutches. We contacted Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) on a Thursday afternoon and described the condition. They were able to access my test data and arrange an appointment to see Dr. Eric Deal right away on Monday. After evaluating the situation, Dr. Deal patiently explained the condition and the possible treatment options. We decided on surgery, and they were able to schedule me right away on that Thursday at their Eagan location. The surgery went without a hitch, and I was able to walk almost immediately, only needing the assistance of a cane for balance for the first few weeks.

I can honestly say that working with TCO was the most positive medical experience I have ever had. Every member of the TCO staff was completely professional and genuinely caring at every step. The facilities were pleasant and modern, and most conveniently located. The anesthesiologist (Dr. Anderson) listened carefully to my concerns, and we were able to avoid any nausea or allergic reactions which have historically been a real problem for me. Dr. Deal and his team did an incredible job with the surgery and the aftercare. Following this rather complex procedure, I had almost no pain and required no medications beyond ordinary Tylenol. I simply cannot say enough good things about the technical expertise and genuine care this group provided, and I wholeheartedly recommend TCO without reservation for anyone needing orthopedic care.

I was recommended to Dr. Banks years ago for back pain. I was very blessed with a very good surgeon. Dr. Banks has performed four back surgeries on me over the years and I was pain-free after each one!

Once again, I write this with gratitude for Dr. Hoel. I recently completed my second back fusion due to my degenerative disc disease. The first fusion saved me from a wheelchair. This second fusion saved me from the continued loss of function of my right hand. In just six weeks, my hand strength has started to return. That result was not necessarily going to happen. The goal was simply to stop the progression of the weakness. As with my first fusion, the recovery was very manageable in terms of pain.

Dr Hoel always took the time to be thorough in his explanations. He answered all my questions and was careful in his diagnoses and ordering of tests. His PA, Christina Erdman was always prompt and thorough in returning my email messages. His support staff was also very helpful. I highly recommend Dr Hoel and his team.

Dr. Michalik did a great job identifying and prescribing treatment at my first visit. He provided clear and understandable information. He paid attention to what I had to say. I would recommend him to any one with back issues.

Dr. Omar did a fantastic job on my spine. This surgery, and my hip replacement surgery with Dr. Samuel Carlson, put an end to my severe pain and allowed me to walk again after 6 months in a wheelchair. I most highly recommend TCO. Thanks a million. Kudos!

Tomorrow I go in for my one year post-op appointment for neck surgery. I was beyond nervous but knew this procedure needed to be done. My experience was phenomenal from the very start. The anesthesiologist listened to my past experience and for the first time I had no stomach upset post-surgery. Dr. Deal was exceptional. He was straight forward and explained the entire process. The nurses who cared for me after the procedure were such a blessing. I was in good hands. If I ever have any spine problems, I know where to go. Go to TCO and Dr. Deal. Thank you so very much!

My back surgery went very well. Dr. Banks went above and above and beyond what I expected. Dr. Banks really took the time to give me the best outcome and result possible. My progress has been very good and I am expecting it to continue to improve, thanks to Dr. Banks. I would definitely see him again, if needed, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I’ve had lumbar pain, stenosis, and herniation that I’ve been dealing with for over thirty years from the hazards of life as a paratrooper when I was a young man. Dr. Davis provided succinct, experienced advice that was informative and helpful. He also did not recommend surgery, which was more helpful in my case. As the adage says for the physician, “first, do no harm.” Dr. Davis places the patient’s well-being above everything else. Thank you!

As a young person with back pain, it can be scary. I have been a patient of Dr. Wanderman for about 8 months and she has been nothing short of incredible. She explains everything well and takes you seriously. She is an advocate and does all she can to help you. Her and the team have the most incredible bedside manner of any physician I’ve ever seen. I would recommend her to anyone 100 times over.

Dr. Bloom is the “real deal!” He listens, he validates, he teaches and a long-term plan is developed by the time you leave his office. His kindness and understanding surrounds his patients and you immediately believe he won’t give up on you.
