The surgery went well; the recovery was complete, even though I did not complete therapy or exercises except for a lot of walking. The entire staff at TCO was professional and helpful from beginning to end. I have, and will continue to recommend TCO to others.

This letter is to verify my feelings about my recent complete shoulder replacement operation which you did for me on July 16, 2014. I must tell you that this has to be one of the finest pieces of work you have ever done on a shoulder replacement!! I would give you an A++ as a grade for the work you have done on my shoulder!! As of 2 days ago – 2 weeks from my operation – I can do so very much with my right hand, and arm that it is hard to believe. I can dress myself completely, tie my own shoes, button my clothes, eat meals, (can’t cut meat yet), shower, shave, wash my hair with both hands. I have very little pain from my shoulder area, and can only take Tylenol Extra Strength tablets, as I am allergic to Morphine and all its derivatives, which are the generally accepted pain relief tablets. All in all, Dr. Gulli, as I say again, I am so very pleased with the results of this operation on my shoulder, and want to commend you on such a fine piece of work, and Thank You for doing this great a job on me!!

Tim Jackson has been a dairyman most of his life. As the years passed, his knees wore out. “Two years ago they were getting so bad that I could hardly navigate anymore,” said Tim. He began to get depressed because it was too painful to continue his work and enjoy an active lifestyle. Tim sought help from providers and had some treatment before finding Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO). His treatment journey with TCO’s Dr. Thomas Comfort helped him find the solution he was looking for. “It was a positive experience from the beginning,” said Tim. “He painted a whole other picture for my life.”
My knee feels great and is functioning flawlessly. This is a photo of me racing at Indianhead Mountain in our Midwest Championships this March. Thanks for your skill as a surgeon Dr. Asp. When I need replacement parts, I’ll be back!

Absolutely tops. From the initial visit to the last post op appointment, I was always treated with courtesy and respect. My surgery was in the morning and hospital staff had me walking that evening. Dr. Anderson is not only a fine surgeon but has a great bedside manner also. He took all the time that was needed for questions from myself, my wife, my kids, when he made his rounds. My new hip feels and works great!

“I have received great care from Dr. Asp and all the staff at TCO and I recommend them to everyone I talk to who needs surgery,” said Karen S. (pictured), a patient of Jonathan Asp, MD. Karen’s first experience with Twin Cities Orthopedics was a visit with Dr. Asp to discuss her knee pain. After a pair of cortisone shots provided only temporary relief, Karen decided to have both of her knees replaced. Karen kept to the recommended post-surgery exercise program and said that since the surgery, her “knees have been just great.” More recently, Karen began to experience pain in both of her shoulders. Over a thirteen month period, she had both of her shoulders replaced by Dr. Asp. Two weeks after her first shoulder surgery, she was able to raise her arm straight up Shortly thereafter, Karen said she “used her snow blower and cleaned my driveway and sidewalk.” Karen said she is grateful for the technology advances in joint replacement surgery, as it enables her “to continue to live alone in my own house!”

I had the new direct anterior hip replacement surgery on May 6,2014, home the next day. I didn’t even bother with a walker, and after 2 weeks I gave up the cane. It was an incredibly easy experience, and if it gets any easier it could be drive through surgery. I will definitely recommend Dr. O’Neill to some friends who are contemplating hip surgery. The entire staff is top notch, and I was kept completely informed on what to expect throughout the entire process.

Dr. Barry and his staff and group did a great job. I had total knee replacement on 12/10/13. On 12/12/13 I could stand on my right leg without being supported by anything. I could not walk for a week without a walker. I had PT 2 times a day for 5 days in the hospital. After 3 weeks I was already driving. Then by February I was playing handball and played in the MN State Handball Association Golden Masters Doubles Handball Tournament March 7-8, 2014. I had PT 2 times a week for 9 weeks. I also did water exercises for 6 weeks. I still have scar tissue in my right knee and still stretch every day. I continue to play hand ball four days a week. Many of my fellow handball players have told me knee and hip replacements work out great, our only regret was WE waited too long to have the procedure. P.S. I plan to play in the MN State Handball Association Handball singles Tournament April 25th at the U of M.

I was told about Dr. Christopher Meyer from a doctor friend of mine who knew of his reputation as an excellent surgeon. Dr. Meyer performed three surgeries on me within a 31 day period, so I feel I’m as good of a reference of his work as anyone could be. I had two total hip replacements and a left carpal tunnel and trigger finger surgery. I honestly think that the talent and expertise that he showed was as good as there is anywhere. I was walking two weeks to the day of my second hip surgery without any assistance of a walker or crutches; this was amazing and made me realize the fine job he had done. It would be wrong of me not to mention the fine supporting cast of assistants and facilities which were used. Ridgeview Hospital in Waconia, MN has a dedicated wing for joint surgeries, which allowed me to have my own room. The care I received from the staff of nurses and physical therapists was truly remarkable. I must also say that Dr. Christopher’s choice of his Physician Assistant Sommer Vaughan was an excellent decision, her knowledge of both office and operation procedure made my experience as smooth and successful as it could be. I truly believe that I could not have gotten better care anywhere and would recommend Dr. Christopher Meyer and his staff to anyone. Thank you so much to everyone who was involved, these surgeries gave me a chance to live my life normally again.Sincerely,Myron C.

I met Dr. O’Neill in 2008 when I was having such a difficult time with my knees. The lack of mobility and the pain made simple daily activities impossible. A total ‘knee replacement’ returned me to an active lifestyle. In 2010 I had ‘rotator cuff repair’, and in April of 2014 I had a ‘direct anterior hip replacement.’ The surgical skills of Dr. O’Neill and the aftercare of his team were outstanding. I can be more active now than I was 10 years ago. I would highly recommend him as an orthopedic surgeon.
