Michael G.

I was hit by a car in a parking garage in 2012. My left knee meniscus was heavily damaged and was cleaned up microscopically, however I was told at that time that I would likely need a knee replacement before age 65. After moving to MN, I transferred care to Dr. Arntson at TCO. Due to arthritis, my knee would periodically swell, which was very painful. I had it drained with corticosteroid injection which worked extremely well for a number of years but, as forewarned, it eventually stopped being effective. I had a total knee replacement, spent the next day at Mercy Hospital, and after my second PT session I was able to return home. The first couple of days were rough (pain wise). Within 2 weeks I was able to walk unassisted. Within 6 weeks I was able to engage in most of my prior daily routine. Continuing PT and exercise, I anticipate being better than I have felt in a couple of years. Thank you TCO, Dr. Arntson, Megan Nelson (PT), and Bri Lund (PA)!
