Dr. Lewis – We want to thank you and your staff for all you did for Mason in surgery on March 13th enabling him to be able to set out on two goals he had going in to that day. He had a personal goal to be back for his first game of his senior football season, August 30th. He also had a team goal to be playing in the Prep Bowl. He was able to achieve both of those goals, not missing a snap along the way as Lakeville North’s starting left guard. Below is a picture from that first game and then two from their state championship win.
With all of our thanks,
Brian & Jennifer M.

My introduction to Dr. Larson is rather unique as I’m not a runner nor do I compete in major athletic events. However, one of my hobbies is running agility with my Great Dane, Tess.
After two years of training, we were finally ready for our first competitive Agility Trial. It was November 2014, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Honestly, it was the perfect set up – our home course with my instructor at my side and our breeder videotaping my first run. After walking the course and waiting our turn, it was finally time. Wait, wait, wait for the buzzer. Bzzzz…and we were off… Tess was over the first jump, and heading for the dog walk when she realized I wasn’t running next to her. I had tripped right out of the start gate. How embarrassing, I thought, as a hundred people were watching. I got myself up, and hobbled along the dog walk then realized something was really wrong. I had to be carried off the course and I almost passed out from the pain.
Three weeks later, I found myself sitting in Dr. Larson’s office as he explained that my hamstring had torn off the bone and surgery was inevitable. I was pretty determined that I could live without the surgery, but Dr. Larson helped me realize that there was no realistic reason not to have the surgery. My fears dissipated as he explained that even with my immobilizer, I could be driving within weeks, hobbling around on crutches for about a month and starting physical therapy within six weeks. Dr. Larson had to squeeze me into his surgery schedule at the last minute, as the time sensitivity of hamstring repair is so imperative. That was Dec 16, 2014.
I graduated from physical therapy in Jan. 2016, thanks to Ashley at Viverant who built my confidence as well as my hamstring muscle. In February, 2016, fourteen months post-?surgery, I ran in my first competitive Agility Trial! I was so nervous, but I didn’t fall! There was a huge standing ovation when we finished!
I shed tears of joy and gratitude and I am “back to normal!”
Dr. Crandall performed surgery on my left broken and deformed arm 30 years ago when I was a scared 13 year old. He did an excellent job with compassion. I will always be grateful!

My daughter has struggled with a couple of different sports injuries, due to her switching between low impact sports (swimming and Nordic Skiing) to running long distances. Dr. Weiss was willing to see us on short notice and was very comprehensive and thorough in his evaluation of her injuries. We were able to get her in for X-rays and bone scans to accurately diagnose the problems with which she was dealing on more than one occasion. Dr. Weiss has a comfortable, engaging rapport with his patients (and their parents) and I regularly recommend him to friends who are looking for an orthopedic physician/surgeon. I am never surprised when those friends share their positive experiences and service they received from Dr. Weiss. I highly recommend Dr. Nick Weiss to anyone looking for a personable, experienced, professional orthopedic physician/surgeon with expertise in sports medicine also.
