Dr. Comfort, Thank you so very much for my very successful knee replacement! I love my new knee! Before, when I would stand up, I would have to pause to make sure it was in the right position for walking. Now, I just go and don’t even think about it.
I live north of the Twin Cities and don’t like to drive in heavy traffic. I am grateful for your Wyoming, MN clinic and hospital. Having to drive in heavy traffic is one less thing to worry about.
I totally recommend Dr. Comfort to anyone considering knee replacement. All of the hospital staff told me that he is the best doctor for knee replacement, and he is also the physician with the kindest attitude. I worked at a hospital for many years and you get to know which physicians are good, so I believe the staff when they tell me who they recommend.
I would like to thank all of the staff at the clinic and hospital, who were awesome. Everyone was always cheerful and helpful—Physician’s Assistants, Anesthetists, Nursing, Lab, Respiratory, X-Ray, Physical Therapy, Housekeeping, Billing, Front Desk & Others. Molly was exceptional at coordinating everything.

I didn’t need to view my x-rays to know that my knees were totally worn out. A lifetime spent snowshoeing and hiking into the shack, maintaining a huge country yard, and 33 years of outdoor employment in a physically demanding heavy industry told me that something had to be done. I was in constant pain, fun activities had become a burden, and I could no longer perform my job. Knowing that knee replacements were inevitable, I paid close attention to the conversations of friends, co-workers, and their spouses concerning knee replacement surgery. Some were happy with their results, but I heard far too many stories of surgeries gone bad… infections and knees having to be done two or even three times. I didn’t like what I was hearing.
Then I started hearing reports about Twin Cities Orthopedics and their Fairview facility in Wyoming, MN and, in particular, the great work that Dr. Thomas Comfort was performing. After observing how well two co-workers were doing after having their knees replaced by Dr. Comfort, I was interested. When my girlfriend insisted on having her knee replaced by Dr. Comfort and seeing the excellent results, I knew where I was going to have my knees replaced and by whom. My mind was finally made up, and I was totally at ease on the day of my surgeries knowing that I could put my complete confidence in Dr. Comfort and his staff of David, Molly, John, Kent and countless others who made my stay in the Wyoming facility seem more like a vacation at a health spa than a stay in a hospital. From the volunteers to billing, and from scheduling to food service, I was pampered ‘round the clock. I actually looked forward to my second surgery. It was a 100% positive experience.
Physical therapy went so well that my therapist cut the number of my appointments in half. I now have nice straight legs and no longer walk like a duck. No longer do I cuss when I forget something downstairs or across the yard. I simply walk back and get it! I never dreamed that my knees could turn out so well, and I owe it all to the skill of Dr. Comfort and the caring professionals of Twin Cities Orthopedics.

Over the past few years, I became aware that my right knee was deteriorating from Osteo-Arthritis. Two years ago I began seeing Dr. Christie Heikes at the Twin Cities Orthopedics Edina facility for knee injections – the pain had become intense. Her amazing Physician Assistant, Katie, coached and comforted me through all of the injections – we tried two different types of injections and I am terrified of needles. (I don’t know what I would have done without Katie!) Dr, Heikes listened to me and documented my every fear and concern. She then tailored the treatment of my knee accordingly. I felt so totally supported by Dr. Heikes in every way. Her sensitivity to my feelings was, without exception, phenomenal. When it came time for me to make the final decision to have a total knee replacement, I felt confident that I was making the right decision. Both she and Katie were there with me nearly every step of the way. I am now six weeks out of surgery and my range of motion is 130 degrees. My extension is nearly perfect and my incision is completely healed with no anticipation of being left with a scar! This orthopedic surgeon should not be overlooked by anyone anticipating having total knee replacement surgery! If you choose Dr. Heikes, I am 100% certain that you will be glad that you did!

You could not get any better service and care before, during and after than what you get from Dr. Sanders and his staff.

Dr. Moser was nice, personable, professional and thorough. He carefully listened to the description of my symptoms and kept the visit positive and encouraging. The treatment recommended was practical and conservative, with high likelihood of a favorable outcome.
I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends!

Dr. Deal is truly the real deal! I had serious back issues. Dr. Deal diagnosed my issues with an MRI and X-rays. He then told me I was a candidate for surgery. I had been trying chiropractic and cortisone shots without relief. Dr. Deal took more than enough time to explain pre and post operation info. Everything he talked about was right to the point. Recovery from the pain was instant from the moment I woke up after surgery. I would highly recommend Twin Cities Orthopedics, Dr. Deal, and his staff. Thank you for giving me my lifestyle back!

Scheduling, surgery and post op went very well. No issues and I felt well cared for!
I came in with a cut hand that needed surgery. I was rather scared. Your front end staff was excellent. They helped me with all my needs! Dr. Fischer was great, he explained the procedure to me, and was very kind. I also worked with Amy, and she was very helpful, and very friendly.
I have been back to have therapy, and your therapists have been wonderful. I have been working with Rochelle.
Your clinic is a busy clinic, but I have never felt rushed.
Thanks to all the staff for excellent customer service.

Dr. Meyer correctly chose not to do surgery. A series of casts, protective boots and physical therapy produced a perfect outcome. The injured tendon is stronger and more flexible than the uninjured leg.

After many months of left knee pain, I finally decided on a replacement. I could not have chosen a better surgeon then Dr. Comfort and his team. I am now pain free and my recovery was quick. Thank you Dr. Comfort. I will visit you again when my right knee decides it is time to go.
