I have now had both of my hips replaced. The first one, in 2018, was a lateral approach and the second one in May 2022. The second one was performed by Dr. Owen O’Neill and was a minimally invasive anterior approach.

I recovered much faster with the second surgery and was able to move around easier right after surgery. I was walking without the aid of a walker or cane much sooner and was walking about a block after the first week. I also did not have to have physical therapy with the second surgery.

I did have a fair amount of swelling in my thigh, but as I approach 4 months, the swelling is mostly gone unless I sit in the car for long periods of time or I am up on my feet for most of the day. It diminishes quickly once I sit and elevate my leg. There is pain and discomfort with this type of surgery, but it diminished much quicker and I needed less pain medication.

Both of my legs are now the same length, which makes activity much easier and I do not have the sharp, stabbing pain when stepping down on a very arthritic hip.

I recommend the minimally invasive anterior approach and would seek care again from Dr. O’Neill, if I needed more orthopedic surgery. I found him to be very competent, caring and approachable.

I would highly recommend Dr. O’Neill to anyone needing hip replacement

Dr. Ridley went above and beyond with the repair of my labrum in my hip! He was amazing with the whole process from the first consult, to 3 months post operation. Also, he is amazingly personable and genuinely cares for his patients. I definitely recommend him!

Dr. Meyer and staff, you deserve a million pats on the back and stream of thank you’s. Your team has a combination of caring and professionalism. The team members involved run like a well-oiled gear. I could tell you were invested in my knee replacement and doing the same for others as well. You are doing an awe-inspiring job meeting and dealing with your patients in a time where their anxiety is high, and uncertainty abounds. Your team of nurses, physician assistant, surgical team and therapists have caught your caring spirit, they are wonderful too! Tub full of “thanks” for making a difference in my life!

We had the special care of Nathanael Hall, PA-C today. He was professional, thoughtful and personable. We have not had such genuine care in a long time. Not only did he help us understand that pain is going to be a part of life – something that soothed my somewhat anxious self, but he took time to get to know us a little bit. We enjoyed learning about the history of his tattoo, his South Carolina upbringing, and appreciated him thanking me for my military service. I don’t know to convey our deeply felt thanks! We are looking forward to seeing him again!

I was taken by ambulance and admitted to the Emergency Room with a bad wound to my right forearm due to a fall. I was very fortunate to have Dr. Omar as my surgeon. He explained everything to me in detail, then cleaned my wound and proceeded with doing a complex closure of my wound. My skin is extremely thin, and I was surprised he was able to close the wound with stitches. I saw Dr. Omar nine days later for my follow up appointment and was very pleased with the work he’d done on my arm. It’s going to take a long time to heal but it’s going in the right direction. My major concern was infection because it was so contaminated and so far, no infection. I had the best care possible from Dr. Omar. I am a very lucky lady because the wound was just about down to the tendon and bone in my arm and the stitches are looking good. I would highly recommend Dr. Omar, as he is an excellent surgeon!

I seriously couldn’t have had a better experience at TCO and with Dr. Kelly. The only other place where I have experienced such nice and wonderful staff is Disney World! From the intake nurse, the surgical team, the nurses and therapy staff at the care suites, everyone was extremely nice and made me feel very comfortable the entire stay. I have been singing your praises to everyone that I talked to after the surgery. My mother, also a nurse, would always say to find a place that will treat you like your own family would, and TCO did just that. I’m so happy that I sought out a second opinion at TCO.

I had a left knee replacement 3 months ago and am now walking 1.5 miles daily! Prior to surgery, I could barely walk 2 miles in one week with the pain I had. I did my exercises as much as could before surgery and definitely did the exercises after surgery. Physical therapy is a must. It’s not an easy surgery and takes time to heal. I thank Dr. Mair and TCO for their excellent care before and after surgery! I highly recommend them!

Dr. LaPrade and team are the best!

I am a 66-year-old athlete and have been active in multiple sports my whole life. I still compete in rigorous, endurance Mountain Bike Cycling events. Dr. LaPrade repaired a “complete tear of my posterior meniscal root” in August of 2021. I am happy to report that I am 100% back to aggressively participating in Cycling Endurance events.

When I was finally diagnosed with the complete root tear via an MRI after months of waiting for an appointment with an Ortho surgeon, I was told by the local surgeons here in New Mexico that I could have a “trim” or a “knee replacement” and that my knee problem was classified as a “devastating injury”. I could not find a surgeon in New Mexico who could do the type of complex knee surgery Dr. LaPrade offers. So, I sent my MRI to Dr. LaPrade’s office and they offered to see me. I flew to Minnesota and Dr. LaPrade and staff said they could repair the damage in my knee, and I should be able to return to my athletic passions after recovery and Physical Therapy.

Honestly, I never expected the high level of care I received from Dr. LaPrade’s team and Twin Cities Orthopedics. After surgery, I spent 3 weeks working with Dr. LaPrade’s Physical Therapy team and returned to Minnesota after 8 weeks to get my walk and gait on track with PT appointments. Then I returned two more times for regular check-ups and Trac testing. I am immeasurably grateful for what this astounding team did for me.

Dr. LaPrade has assembled a group of extraordinarily talented individuals for Physical Therapy and basic wellbeing. I’d like to especially mention Amanda, the clinical assistant, who seems to have put the whole process together. The physical therapy staff who took special care of me with PT for the first few weeks after surgery. Chris, the physician assistant, answered all our questions with patience and grace. And of course, Dr. LaPrade and his special talents whom obviously excels at his craft and helped me to keep walking around, with the original knee equipment that I was born with intact.

Needless to state, I highly recommend Dr. LaPrade and staff at Twin Cities Orthopedics for your orthopedic needs.

I am 72 years old, am 4 days post op and walking around! I cannot differentiate my new hip from my remaining hip. I highly recommend Dr. O’Neill. The man is a rock star!
