Twin Cities Orthopedics,
I had my left hip totally replaced on March 20th, 2017. This was my second hip replacement, and I was invited to participate in the EXCEL program at TCO, where I would be having my surgery and recovery done in a non-hospital setting. It was a great way to get this done. My surgery was scheduled early in the morning at the surgery center, and after coming out of the anesthesia, I was brought by van to an assisted living facility. There, I had a room to myself with my care giving staff in the room next to mine. They provided excellent around the clock care including checking on my well being and physical therapy sessions. I was ready to go home by 11:00am the very next day.
The staff members I came into contact with through the entire process were all great! Very professional and caring people that were, in my opinion, some of the best care givers out there. I had Dr. O'Keefe as my surgeon and he did a great job with my hip replacement (he had done my right hip back in 2014 as well).
I'd surely recommend the EXCEL program for anyone qualified to do it. For me, it was a great way to get my hip replacement done. I'm enjoying being able to do the activities I enjoy a lot more comfortably now.
