Scott G.

Thank you Dr. Dick, Brandon and your team! Just 5 months after my herniated L4-5 disc surgery, I had a great ski trip to Copper Mountain and Vail, Colorado. Between that trip and local skiing, I’ve only been out 12 days this season and I’ve had ZERO problems with back or leg pain. I have skied pretty intensely and feel great. I’ve been quite religious about the PT exercises prescribed to me, with no complications. After a couple of outdoor bike rides in early November, I now ride my stationary bike at home 4-7 days a week. Last summer I was concerned about my ability to be active in the future, but you can mark me in the “win” column for success with my surgery and recovery. I’m now looking forward to getting back to water skiing and biking this summer. Test

After his son graduated from college, Ken C. and his two sons planned a “bucket list” hiking trip through the Andes Mountains to the legendary Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. Seven weeks before their departure, Ken ruptured two discs in his lower back while playing tennis. “Instead of preparing me for the trip my favorite sport had just knocked me off my feet,” he said. “Not only could I not exercise for the trip, I couldn’t do simple movements like getting into my car without heavy pain medication.” Unable to walk more than 50 feet at a time, Ken consulted with Dr. John Sherman.When Dr. Sherman ordered an MRI, Ken’s trip was just over 4 weeks away and his hopes of completing the hike were fading. “He and I discussed the various treatment options but it was obvious to both of us that I wouldn’t be hiking in my current condition.” Dr. Sherman recommended microdiscectomy surgery on a Friday and it was performed on Monday. “By Tuesday, and I’m not exaggerating, I was pain free,” he said. Shortly thereafter, Ken was taking walks around his neighborhood, slowly increasing his workload. He wasn’t sure he was going on the trip until the day of departure, but opted to give it a try.Ken completed the 4 day hike, which began at an elevation of 11,000 feet and reached an altitude of 14,500 feet before descending into Machu Picchu. He and his sons carried 20-25 backpacks and slept in tents along the way. It was “a trip of a lifetime that would not have taken place without the skills of Dr. John Sherman and the team at Twin Cities Orthopedics,” said Ken.

Larry was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease at the age of twenty-five and has severe spinal stenosis. He has been living with damaged discs in his lower back for the last forty years. When the pain kept him from doing the thing he loved most – riding his motorcycle– Larry turned to Dr. Christian DuBois at Twin Cities Orthopedics for treatment.

After suddenly experiencing severe back pain one Saturday, Scott A. (on the right of the photo) visited the TCO | Access walk-in clinic in Edina. Scott had x-rays and an MRI performed and was scheduled to follow up John Sherman, MD (on the left in the photo), a spine surgery specialist.Following his appointment on Wednesday, Scott was scheduled for surgery on Thursday. “I appreciated how quickly everyone acted to get me back on track again,” he said. “From the walk-in clinic on a Saturday morning with unbearable pain to walking out of surgery feeling so much better in only 5 days, everything has been great,” he said. “I really felt like everyone was personally concerned and working so hard on my behalf.”

Ronaele S.

Ronaele S. (pictured on left) was thankful that she did not have any pain after her spine surgery with Jeffrey C. Dick, M.D. (pictured on right), of Twin Cities Orthopedics Edina. “Before surgery I found it painful to stand and walk,” she said, “not a good quality of life.” The morning after her surgery the physical therapist helped Ronaele stand up and “there was no pain,” she said.

Sally N.

Sally Ness had a 2 year history of back pain following a car accident. She was referred to Med-X Neck and Back Therapy at Twin Cities Orthopedics to help her “be her best, again.””The Med-X treatment relieved me of the persistent back pain I was experiencing. I had already completed two treatments of physical therapy that helped but did not eliminate the pain. I was fortunate enough to have a doctor refer me to Paul Biewen, MD who prescribed Med-X treatment.The Med-X treatment delivered by therapist Kari Cox, PT along with the series of stretching and strengthening exercises that Kari had me complete relieved me of my back pain. My son Dylan was also referred to Dr. Biewen and is now in Med-X treatment. The Med-X treatment has relieved him of pain and is teaching him how to maintain a healthy back by properly stretching various muscles, especially his hamstrings and strengthening various muscles, especially his lower back.”
