What I liked most about Dr. Diekmann was his concern for me and his very pleasant manner.
It’s not easy to hear that one has a serious problem when one is expecting that the torn meniscus is the problem, which it is not, but rather osteoarthritis in the joint of the knee.

Thank you for your help and empathy.

In February 2015, I was suffering severe pain from my lower back down to my feet in both legs and was in need of relief. That’s when I was referred to Dr. Deal and will be forever grateful. He diagnosed my problem after x-rays and a CT scan (I cannot have MRIs), explained his diagnosis in detail along with a plan. I was scheduled for surgery within a week; my problem was between L4-L5; he scraped away the arthritis and took out two cysts and placed a rod between L4-L5. Within 48 hours after surgery, I no longer experienced any pain in my back or legs. I could not believe it; it was so much more than I ever expected.

I would highly recommend Dr. Deal for anyone needing spinal surgery. He is competent, thorough and compassionate, everything you want in a surgeon.

I am extremely pleased with the care I have received from Dr. McCarthy and all the assisting staff members. They were professional and kind and the procedure went very well. Thank you very much for the excellent care!

I received a rotator cuff repair from Dr. Peterson in November, 2015. It was my second one on the left shoulder, and my eighth one total between both sides. I feel like this one was my most successful yet. My recovery time was the shortest of all of my other surgeries to this point, and my physical therapy was very abbreviated, due to the excellent job that Dr. Peterson performed on my shoulder. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of undergoing this procedure.

I am a current Twin Cities Orthopedics patient and am scheduled for a total knee arthroplasty in late April.  I want you to know how impressed I am with Dr. Joseph Teynor and his team, Austin Heneman, PA-/C and Care Coordinator Andrea Jacobsen.  Being the husband of a recently retired physician I understand the time pressure that is put on physicians in today’s economy and practice.  Dr. Teynor has given me a great sense of confidence in the upcoming surgery.  The follow through by Dr. Teynor and his team is timely and flawless. His concern for my surgical outcome is remarkable.

Both I and my wife, Rachel Trockman, M.D., have had other joints replaced  by Twin Cities Orthopedics physicians.  Without question we have been totally satisfied with all levels of care that we have received.  We are cheerleaders for the professionalism and responsiveness of your organization.

I don’t know how to even begin to thank you for all you have done for my father and for my family. You are an amazing team that has made all the difference in my father’s future and his quality of life. It is Easter Sunday and I am watching him walk down the driveway like the father I haven’t seen in well over a year. Words cannot describe the happiness that I see as I watch him today.  He has his independence back and he is getting stronger daily. He is an incredible man and I thank you for the additional moments and memories I get to have with him because of all of you.

It has been a very long journey, and I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate all of your ongoing efforts throughout the process.  From taking on his case so quickly, to the first visit, the surgery, the complications, the follow up visits and now the final outcome.  You have all made such a difference and I don’t know how to truly thank you for what you have done.  I can only tell you that you are truly special and you do something that is wonderful, you make a difference in people’s lives every day.  Please know that while you do this daily, you are not the “norm” that we see all too often in healthcare these days.  You are a very special team that combines an incredible skill set with professionalism, excellent care, and true compassion.  That combination is very unique.

Thank you for everything you have done over the past 4 months!  We never could have come this far without all of you…

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.
