I can’t thank Heather Schroeder enough! Heather pushed me to successfully recover from knee joint surgery. Her professional, caring, positive attitude was exactly what I needed. TCO has the finest staff!

I have nothing but good to say about Dr. Bircher and his entire care team! I was more than adequately educated about and prepared for my surgery beforehand. The entire process from beginning to end went smoothly. Considering what I expected, my pain was controlled and tolerable. I never would have thought in a thousand years that I would be driving again in two and a half weeks and getting around without my walker or cane in four weeks. Sixteen weeks out I feel great! I did not find the pre-surgery and post-surgery exercises at home burdensome in any way and doing them diligently really made my PT sessions productive.

So my left knee feels great after surgery and my right knee feels really good too. I’ll be doing what I can to try to keep it that way but, should my right knee deteriorate in the future I know who to contact to help me and I have no concerns about going through the process again if I have to.

I cannot express my gratitude for TCO and Dr. Nemanich. I am 44 years old and extremely active. My life was put on hold due to the pain of hip osteoarthritis. I was told I needed a hip replacement. I wondered how could this be? I’m too young. So I dealt with the pain for a while until I could hardly walk and limped everywhere. I finally decided to do surgery. Dr. Nemanich was amazing. He explained everything and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed. I scheduled the surgery I was nervous because I had never had a broken bone in my life.

The surgery team met with me and explained everything. When I woke up I was still scared I didn’t know what to expect. I was a little sore and groggy but that arthritic pain in my hip was completely gone! It was crazy! Dr. Nemanich met with me after and explained things to me. Once again, I never felt like he was in a hurry. He answered all my questions. I was scared walking for the first time and the first week was a little rough, but by the second week – wow! I cannot believe the mobility and pain free hip I have! I want all new joints now! I will definitely be coming back to TCO and referring my family and friends. The entire team is amazing, from the people that handle insurance and work paperwork, to the surgeons, and nurses. I am able to live my life without pain again. Thank you TCO!

I was bone on bone for years and it was time to get a new knee. Dr. Schmiesing performed the knee replacement surgery and I was walking the same day, with help of staff, who were very helpful and caring. One month later I was back at work and it’s been getting better with every day. TCO has been my go to team to take care of any problems. I will be returning to them for any further help.

I have been under Dr. Wu’s care for one year. I walked in with painful joints and he diagnosed me with Rheumatoid Arthritis. He prescribed the proper medications to get me back to functioning like my normal self. He and his care coordinator, Samantha, are always available to take and respond to message, or adjust medications as needed. I would never leave this area because I don’t believe there is another doctor anywhere that could fill Dr. Wu’s shoes.

Dr. Ockuly is an excellent surgeon. He is very personable, knowledgeable, and he listens to his patients. At 6 weeks I’m walking without a cane up and down stairs. The surgical site healed beautifully and I t was not very painful after surgery. Thank you Dr. Ockuly!

I wish to express my deep appreciation for the outstanding medical treatment my son Gavin received from Dr. Nicholas J. Meyer, MD and his fabulous staff.

Six days after my son nearly lost his index and pointer fingers in a horrible snow blower accident, our appointment had been cancelled from under us by another clinic. Gavin and I were devastated, as we both knew he had a very narrow window for hopefully saving his fingers. I spent most of the night googling Top 10 Hand Surgeons in Minnesota and praying to God for guidance and support. Dr. Nicholas Meyer popped up in my search and I prayed he could help us. Immediately the morning of 1/25/23 I called his scheduling assistant Laurie and left her a pleading message and back story regarding my son. Within a matter of time, my cell phone rang and it was Laurie. Bless her heart and the hearts of Dr. Meyer and his entire team. It was a snowy day and Laurie told us to come into the office that afternoon. It was a bit of a drive from where we lived, however, we did not care. We told Laurie we would drive from wherever, we didn’t care, as we were so thankful for their support and understanding of the seriousness of the injury. Although Dr. Meyer had an already overbooked schedule, Laurie made time for Gavin. Dr. Meyer and his team treated Gavin very special and were so kind to him from the second we met.

By the end of our visit with Dr. Meyer we had surgery scheduled for 1/27/23 and again, Dr. Meyer and his team squeezed our son onto his Friday morning surgery schedule. When we left the TCO clinic, we knew we were in good hands and that everything was going to be alright (to the extent it could be). Surgery went smooth, every visit and check-up thereafter went smooth. We were blessed with some follow-up visits with Dr. Meyer’s PA, Jennifer Ellis (whom was also in surgery with Gavin).

The care our son received from start to finish was phenomenal. Dr. Meyer and his team should be so proud of themselves, and also the x-ray team and the team in rehab that made the casts. Everyone was so kind, caring, patient, understanding and professional. Today we celebrate our son’s recovery thanks to this team. We loved each of them, and although thankful for saving Gavin’s fingers, we were sad to say goodbye, knowing (hopefully) that we will not see them again.

Nick Meath was very professional and explained every step while preparing me for my injection. I was pretty nervous and I know he sensed that. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I would recommend him to anyone that needs an injection.

I wanted to share my experience for anyone who might be apprehensive or concerned about their surgery.  I was at TCO Eagan on August 7, 2023. My experience from start to finish was incredibly positive. Dr. O’Neill and his entire team, Isabel, Ann and the TCO team went above and beyond my expectations. I did a ton of research on the surgery I wanted and Dr. O’Neill was with me step by step. The preparation well in advance of surgery, information throughout the process, the thoughtfulness and support from the team the entire time was phenomenal. My left hip was bone on bone and I could barely walk to the mailbox. Today, I feel as if my hip is brand new. I am back in the game and my quality of life is amazing. Thank you really isn’t enough to say how grateful I am to Dr. O’Neill and the entire team.

I have been a patient of Dr. Meyer for 15 years. In this time he has given me relief from pain with seven successful surgeries (both hips, both knees, shoulder, arm, and a severely fractured ankle and foot). Dr. Meyer and his PA, Sommer Vaughn, have always been very caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable about my care. They listened to me as a patient and plans were made for necessary surgeries. These surgeries have enabled me to continue to enjoy a normal life in my later years. I am now 83 years young, enjoying my husband of 65 years, 4 children, 9 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. I would advise anyone choosing orthopedic care to call TCO. It’s a close by facility.
