I would recommend Dr. O’Neill and his staff to everyone considering having a hip replacement. I also would definitely recommend the Direct Anterior Hip Replacement procedure! The hip pain is GONE!

I highly recommend Dr. Owen O’Neill at Twin Cities Orthopedics. Dr. O’Neill has a lot of experience in the new direct anterior hip replacement procedure. He gained my trust by taking the necessary time to honestly answer my questions. I had surgery in December. I went home after two nights in the hospital. I did not need to go to a nursing home transitional care unit nor did I need outpatient physical therapy. This was a huge cost and time savings. I quit using a walker and cane the second day I was home. I drove after ten days and I had my right hip replaced. I had no pain, just incision soreness and leg muscle stiffness. My leg muscles were weak due to avoiding walking for the past two years because of hip pain. I work in a transitional care unit in a nursing home and I see the people who had complications with hip replacement surgery. I put surgery off way too long. Today, I would not think twice if I need my left hip replaced. And – the surgeon will be Dr. O’Neill.

I would like to thank Dr. O’Neill and his team for the excellent job they did replacing my left hip.
Dr. O’Neill is a very good doctor; it’s hard for me to find the words to praise his work.
He’s my hero. He has very skilled hands. My standard of living improved dramatically after the operation. I have no pain, when I’m walking and I can walk a lot. I have even became a member of a fitness club.
I would definitely recommend Dr. O’Neill to others who need a similar operation. Even more so, if I would ever need another replacement I would absolutely go back to Doctor O’Neill.

Dr. Owen O’Neill and Jessie Donovan, P. A. were absolutely fabulous throughout the entire knee replacement process. They were very informative, thorough, and reassuring in preparing me for surgery. They answered every question and concern. I always felt listened to and cared for. The surgery was a complete success thanks to their careful preparation and skill during surgery. They were very patient and caring during recovery too. Every e-mail or phone call was answered within hours. After surgery I struggled with sleep issues and they actively helped me find solutions. I followed their instructions and was dedicated to my physical therapy. It’s been 6 months and I feel like a new woman. Thanks so much to both of you!

Dr. O’Neill and his team are simply the best-the very best. From Dr. O’Neill’s anterior technique to the whole team’s concerned care giving, you simply couldn’t find a better group. I was up walking right after surgery and went home just a few days after the operation, and now, after two months, I never feel a thing at my hip and find it hard to believe I even had the operation.

After 4-5 years of walking like a penguin, and with a significant limp, it was time to re-visit Dr. O’Neill and Jessie for a heart to heart serious discussion to remedy my problem. It was a simple explanation of the proposed replacement and the surgery itself. Scared? Oh yeah! I actually found out that my leg WAS NOT going to be cut in two. The surgery and hospital nurses at St. Francis were OUTSTANDING. I highly recommend them. Rehab was exactly what I was told it was going to be. Sometimes uncomfortable, but NOT UNBEARABLE. The physical therapists at Dr. O’Neill’s office were great! Sometimes tough, but not harsh. I worked with Kelly mostly who was outstanding! It is now 3 1/2 months since surgery. My knee truly hasn’t felt this good in close to 10 years. I’m looking forward to deer hunting next month, WITHOUT PAIN. THANK YOU DR. O’NEILL, JESSIE and the physical therapists, especially Kelly.

Dr. O’Neill‘s technical competence matched the patient contact time for an outstanding result. Dr. O’Neill and his staff took the needed time to answer my questions and meet my needs as a patient. I’m very pleased with the outcome.

Smooth! Effective! Humorous! (Whoops, watch the funny bone!) These guys were great. The most difficult after effect was the constipation related to surgery. We can easily live with that. Oops I forgot immediately responsive. The team was there when I needed them. It has not been quite a year and I am at the gym 110 minutes per day as well as walking 3.5 miles per night. Now this is not only on the new hip but also the knee replacement of 2007. Hey carpe diem all.
Less than a month ago, Dr. O’Neill performed a anterior approach total hip replacement on my left hip, and a year ago he performed the same procedure on my right. Both surgeries went extremely well. While I recovered quickly after the first surgery, recovery was even faster for the second. I used a walker for a few days, a cane for about a week, and was walking easily in 10 days. In fact, I am walking more easily now than I have in years.
Since it was clear from the start I needed both hips replaced, we planned a course of action that would work best for me. I am grateful for the individualized care I received from Dr. O’Neill and his team. I have recommended him, and the anterior approach, to several others.

The treatment I received from Dr. O’Neill, the EXCEL team and TCO was fantastic! The continuity of care was complete- each doctor, nurse, therapist, PA, administrative assistant, care coordinator- you name it- everyone coordinated my care and progress in a way that is remarkable for most surgical procedures. I’m less than four months out from a full knee replacement, and able to do most things already, including daily swims half-way across the lake, one of my goals for summer here at the cabin. The only thing slowing me down now is the other knee- which also has arthritis and that I’ll be replacing later this year. Based on my experience with the first knee, I should be on cross country skis by February! I felt totally confident with Dr. O’Neill- he patiently answered ALL my questions before and after surgery- he took the time I needed to be comfortable about what would happen. Thank you to the entire team!
