Jeanie F.

Over the past few years, I became aware that my right knee was deteriorating from Osteo-Arthritis. Two years ago I began seeing Dr. Christie Heikes at the Twin Cities Orthopedics Edina facility for knee injections – the pain had become intense. Her amazing Physician Assistant, Katie, coached and comforted me through all of the injections – we tried two different types of injections and I am terrified of needles. (I don’t know what I would have done without Katie!) Dr, Heikes listened to me and documented my every fear and concern. She then tailored the treatment of my knee accordingly. I felt so totally supported by Dr. Heikes in every way. Her sensitivity to my feelings was, without exception, phenomenal. When it came time for me to make the final decision to have a total knee replacement, I felt confident that I was making the right decision. Both she and Katie were there with me nearly every step of the way. I am now six weeks out of surgery and my range of motion is 130 degrees. My extension is nearly perfect and my incision is completely healed with no anticipation of being left with a scar! This orthopedic surgeon should not be overlooked by anyone anticipating having total knee replacement surgery! If you choose Dr. Heikes, I am 100% certain that you will be glad that you did!
