She is a great Doctor; I was worried that I would not find a new one after mine retired. She is no BS when it comes to doing what needs to be done! Thank you doc!

I am so grateful to Dr. DuBois. He quickly diagnosed my spine problem and explained, in terms I could understand as a lay person, the surgery needed to correct my problem. I had surgery on a Friday, and Dr. DuBois had a family obligation in Wisconsin over the weekend. I received calls in the hospital from him on Saturday and Sunday to inquire how I was doing. I am now 4 months out of surgery and doing great! Dr. DuBois is a brilliant surgeon, came highly recommended from my primary care clinic, as well as a caring compassionate human being. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing back/spine surgery.

Thank you to Dr. Meisterling and his staff for a successful repair of my broken wrist. Everyone was helpful and answered all my questions. Dr. Meisterling is an excellent surgeon.

My introduction to Dr. Larson is rather unique as I’m not a runner nor do I compete in major athletic events. However, one of my hobbies is running agility with my Great Dane, Tess.
After two years of training, we were finally ready for our first competitive Agility Trial. It was November 2014, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Honestly, it was the perfect set up – our home course with my instructor at my side and our breeder videotaping my first run. After walking the course and waiting our turn, it was finally time. Wait, wait, wait for the buzzer. Bzzzz…and we were off… Tess was over the first jump, and heading for the dog walk when she realized I wasn’t running next to her. I had tripped right out of the start gate. How embarrassing, I thought, as a hundred people were watching. I got myself up, and hobbled along the dog walk then realized something was really wrong. I had to be carried off the course and I almost passed out from the pain.
Three weeks later, I found myself sitting in Dr. Larson’s office as he explained that my hamstring had torn off the bone and surgery was inevitable. I was pretty determined that I could live without the surgery, but Dr. Larson helped me realize that there was no realistic reason not to have the surgery. My fears dissipated as he explained that even with my immobilizer, I could be driving within weeks, hobbling around on crutches for about a month and starting physical therapy within six weeks. Dr. Larson had to squeeze me into his surgery schedule at the last minute, as the time sensitivity of hamstring repair is so imperative. That was Dec 16, 2014.
I graduated from physical therapy in Jan. 2016, thanks to Ashley at Viverant who built my confidence as well as my hamstring muscle. In February, 2016, fourteen months post-?surgery, I ran in my first competitive Agility Trial! I was so nervous, but I didn’t fall! There was a huge standing ovation when we finished!
I shed tears of joy and gratitude and I am “back to normal!”
Dr. Panek was the first, after many years of searching and being turned away, to take me in as a patient and do both my knee replacements that were desperately needed. Thanks to his close care I can walk pain free and sit in a chair normally for the first time in twenty years. Dr. Panek just so happens to have also done hip surgery on my grandfather and two total knees on my step father before me. Thanks Doctor, you were literally one in a million for me.

Really impressed by the movement I have and how pain free I am since the replacement just 12 weeks ago. Been in Arizona playing golf while carrying my bag just as I did last summer only its now pain-free! Back on the elliptical in the gym with no problems with the leg and knee getting stronger all the time. Thank You Dr. Lewis, you have my vote of confidence!

I’ve had lower back pain for over 20 years and treated by several doctors with no lasting results. Finally, a sports medicine physician ordered an MRI and referred me to Dr. Dick at Twin Cities Orthopedics. The physician told me he had a good personal experience with Dr. Dick and I took that as a good referral.
During my first appointment, Dr. Dick showed me the X-rays that he took and explained my MRI results. He then provided his recommendations in very clear language; a refreshing conversation in plain English that was understandable. Surgery was scheduled and about 10 days later, Dr. Dick and his assistants worked while I “slept.” I was sent home from the hospital with a list of what to do and what not to do for the next 3-6 months.
For the next 12 weeks, I was not allowed to lift more than 10 pounds and he told me to walk to promote good post-surgery healing. I followed his instructions and after about 4 weeks I was walking 3-5 miles per day. 6 months after surgery and I am virtually pain free- better than I have felt in 20 years! I can run and I am back in the gym doing more aggressive workouts.
Because of Dr. Dick’s first class surgical skills and PT recommendations, I am back riding my bike, starting to play golf again, and looking forward to skiing next winter. Dr. Dick and his staff have been so professional and accessible to answer all of my questions; I can only give them my highest recommendation. And they all have a great sense of humor!

Dr. Meyer treated my daughter, Leah, for elbow pain related to her sports participation as well as performed her trigger finger surgery. He showed great compassion and understanding for the impact these issues had on her sports participation, which at her age is really important to her; as well as of course providing great medical care (which, as her parents, we were more focused on.)

I cannot thank Dr. O’Neill and his staff enough for giving me my life back. I had become very immobile before having my hip replacement. I had total hip replacement and also had to lengthen that leg 2 inches. I had the surgery on a Tuesday and went home on Wednesday. I was at the grocery store walking with the grocery cart on Friday. I had very little pain. No need for therapy other than what they showed me at the hospital after surgery. It has been awesome! Can’t thank you enough Dr. O’Neill, Jessica and Alyssa. You all are just the BEST.

On December 31, 2015, Dr. Asp replaced my right knee. I have osteoarthritis and have had many procedures done including a total hip replacement. The thing that sets Dr. Asp apart from my previous doctors is that he took the time to listen to me as I explained how I was feeling. I felt that we were a team making the decisions for my care. The procedure went perfectly and I am ahead of schedule with my recovery. My care has been exceptional from Dr. Asp to Maple Grove Hospital to Twin Cities Orthopedics Physical Therapy.
