Dr. Deal is my hero. I suffered from a herniated L4/L5 disc which resulted in extreme lower back and left sciatic pain for nearly a year before working my way through the proper insurance channels to receive a discectomy. It was a very long road I traveled in seeing multiple doctors, x-rays, an MRI, ten weeks of physical therapy, an epidural injection and pain medication. After meeting with Dr. Deal he said that a discectomy was the best course of action, and the procedure was scheduled. The folks at Twin Cities Orthopedics (where the surgery was performed) couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. And the results of the surgery couldn’t have been better. I’m typing this three weeks following the surgery and I currently have ZERO pain, which is a huge difference considering a few weeks ago I couldn’t walk more than a few blocks nor could I stand still for more than a few seconds. In all sincerity the surgery by Dr. Deal was one of the best things to ever happen to me. I am very grateful for his services and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you, Dr. Deal!

Dr. Deal did surgery on my back twice for herniated discs and he is the best. I was in so much pain for a pinched nerve that my leg wouldn’t even work right and for the second time I am pain free. I am thankful I found Dr. Deal because he did a great job getting me fixed from the worst time of my life. I would highly recommend.

I had the best experience with my back surgery with Dr. Deal. After 2 prior back surgeries this one was the best success! I have never felt better. Dr. Deal is the best doctor I have ever had. Thank you so very much!

I herniated a disc in my cervical spine in the fall and was experiencing a lot of pain and numbness down my right arm, as well as muscle spasms. I started PT with Mike Shirilla and recovered a lot more quickly than I expected to. Aside from doing traction, Mike showed me the proper exercises to help recover from my injury. He was great to work with and extremely knowledgeable. I feel back to normal now and even completed a 1/2 marathon recently. I can’t thank Mike and TCO enough for the great care I received. And, I was so pleased I did not get pushed at all into going a surgical route with my problem.

I herniated a disc in my C spine in the fall and experienced terrible pain and numbness down my right arm. I saw Dr. Bjerke, who immediately got MRIs done and recommended rest, then a course of PT. He did an excellent job. I feel completely better and I just completed a 1/2 marathon. I am thankful to TCO for helping me when I was so worried a few months back!

I’ve had some debilitating back and right hip issues and finally found Dr. Crowe. He actually listened and spent time trying to figure out what was going on. After an X-ray, it was determined I have some degenerative spine issues. He suggested trying an epidural spine shot and after a month it started feeling better. Now, I have started exercising again. It may come back but now I feel I’ve found a doctor who will listen and be there for me when it flares back up again. My next step is to strengthen my core and get back in shape to lessen any future issues. Thanks Dr. Crowe.

After 3 months of unsatisfying care through other referrals and recommendations, I asked Dr. Prebonich of North Memorial, my care provider for several years, who HE thought could help me. Dr. Ryan was his choice. She is ABSOLUTELY wonderful in every way. She listens and she articulately shares her thoughts. Her compassion for my needs seriously seems divine. Dr. Ryan’s clinical assistant, Ashley Rockey, is held equally as spectacular. If it’s Olympic style care you desire, CALL Dr. Ryan.

I have spent over 30 years struggling with back pain, and the past couple years have been the absolute worst as I had developed sciatica.

Dr. Crowe has given me my life back. In a matter of a couple weeks, the lumbar decompression he performed has permitted me do the things that I enjoy once again. My scarring is minimal too! I cannot wait until the weather breaks so my pups and I can go walking again. Thank you so much Dr. Crowe!

I had surgery for a synovial cyst on my spine in January 2017. I was quite miserable prior to the surgery, and the pain was gone after the surgery. Dr. Deal explained the proposed surgery in detail. I completed the physical therapy sessions after surgery. I was able to garden this summer and am able to do my household tasks. I am very happy with the results and thought Dr. Deal was very considerate.

After 15 years of pain and numbness radiating down the back of both legs and into my feet Dr. Deal performed a spinal fusion on my back L4, L5. I woke up after surgery with very little pain. Every day was better than the day before. My only regret was waiting so many years to have my surgery. I also have anxiety and panic issues. Dr. Deal and his nurse gave me the calm and courage to proceed. At age 69 I, for the first time in many years, feel positive about my future. I can now stand to cook and bake for my family, pain free. Thank you kindly, Dr. Deal. What a wonderful gift you have.
