I have been with Dr. Lewis and his PA, Libby since 2014 when I broke both of my legs. They did an awesome job of taking care of me, considering I have sever osteoporosis! Over the years, my legs gradually got very bent and I walked with a bad limp until I needed a total knee replacement on both knees. Now I have very straight legs and I’m not walking with a limp! Thank you both for doing an excellent job at taking care of me. Dr. Lewis and Libby are the #1 doctor and PA in my book!

From the very first time after knee replacement surgery, Victoria (Tori) was very professional, skilled, attentive, diligent, focused, and highly communicative for my recovery. I am no longer in need of physical therapy since her assistance has made my healing progress at a rate I did not expect (I am 79 years old). She answered all of my questions and was very helpful during my therapy/recovery process. I am most grateful for her very caring and comforting approach. It made my apprehension a minimal issue in recovery. I want to thank Tori for her assistance and professional approach.

Dr. Schmiesing did my surgical knee replacement. Of course, I had some trepidation about the procedure and the recovery. It was a much easier surgery than I expected and the after-care is wonderful. Being 5 weeks out, I feel I am progressing quite well. I would highly recommend Dr. Schmiesing for any type of surgical procedure and if I need future orthopedic procedure I would definitely have him do it for me.

This testimonial is long overdue. I had both knee replacements done by Dr. Randall Lewis. One surgery took place on 10/13/21, and the second one was on 1/26/23. Both surgeries were as successful as possible seeing that I have had absolutely no problems with either knee since the procedures. The surgeries went so well that with each knee operation, I was able to walk up the stairs to my second level bedroom the night I got home.

As for Dr. Lewis, other than his surgical skill, he is very pleasant to talk with and makes one very comfortable regarding the decision to go forward with the operation. I am 85 and with the new knees, I’m able to comfortably play 18 championship holes of golf, 3 times per week and all summer long.

I am completely impressed by every facet of Twin Cities Orthopedics and am happy to share my experience. Getting a full knee replacement is a tough decision and they answered every question I posed. The surgery was a success, led by Dr. Bircher, who is supported by an incredible staff. The immediate post-treatment care could not have gone better. I felt like I was in a 5-star hotel, but more than that, it was the people working there who are so wonderful and genuine.

The physical therapy was harder than I expected but I received incredible coaching on what to do, with just the right amount of prodding. Thank you for fixing this problem which I have been dealing with for a very long time. I feel great and it is thanks to Dr. Bircher and the TCO staff!

Thank you to Dr. Bloom for listening to me and respecting me as a seasoned healthcare provider and patient. I have practiced anesthesia for nearly 40 years and am extremely impressed with all that he brings to the table as a pain management and anesthesia specialist. My diagnosis of CRPS with my comorbidities is challenging and he knew how to create the perfect “pain block” to get me literally back on my feet. His intervention, referral to PT and other care recommendations were the answer. He stands out as preeminent in so many ways! TCO has the best there is in the business in you!

I never got the opportunity to thank Dr. Johnson and staff for the outstanding professional medical care that you provided me during my two knee replacement surgeries. Dr. Johnson and his staff were so helpful during the process and when I did have some complications during the process he and his staff took care of me right away. There are not enough words to say how grateful I am, and thank you for the professional health care that I received from you and TCO.

Dr. Hofkens is very kind and willing to take the time to explain what is happening, along with your options. He gave me the answers I needed for a treatment plan and follow-up. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer someone to Dr. Hofkens.

Dr. Gregory Scallon and staff went beyond the call of duty for my son and family. My family has an autistic son who needs to get his foot corrected due to the fact that he is ASD. My wife and I went to multiple orthopedic surgeons and none of them could meet our son’s need. Finally, our last stop was Twin Cities Orthopedics and we were able to find Dr. Gregory Scallon he performed the best surgery for our son and helped with the correction of his feet.

I am a retired USMC Veteran of Desert Storm. Dr. Scallon and the staff went beyond the call of duty. They are very professional and helpful. I give them 10 stars!

I am 64 years old and I had a trimalleolar fracture of my left ankle 3 years ago. After a long recovery, I thought the worst was behind me. About 18 months after the accident, I developed post traumatic osteoarthritis of my left ankle. I tried medication, steroid injections and ended up using a cam boot for almost 6 months since I was unable to put weight on my foot due to the pain. I was referred to Dr. Mittelsteadt to see if I was a candidate for ankle replacement. I had the surgery in March 2023. I am now 7 months post-surgery, have completed physical therapy, am walking up to 4 miles every day (which is something I have not been able to come close to for 3 years). Dr. Mittelsteadt is professional, accessible, and kind. The staff at TCO are great! They are very friendly and accommodating. I am very grateful that I was able to have this replacement done and get my mobility back!
