Dr. Szalapski replaced both of my hips. The first hip was 4 years ago and the other was in November 2019. Both times I could not have been more satisfied. My friends were amazed at how fast I was recuperating. I never used a walker and I only used a cane for one day. I recommend Dr. Szalapski whenever I can.

Thank you, Doctor!

I had my knee replacement surgery on October 7, 2019. My entire experience – starting with my consultation with Dr. Szalapski, through the preliminary “class”, surgery, and follow-up – has been very positive. I am very glad that I had the surgery when I did.

Dr. Szalapski’s team of nurses and other doctors are excellent, and they all work very well together. The pre-op and post-op staff at Fairview Hospital Southdale in Edina were amazing. They were helpful, friendly and professional. Thanks to the good care of everyone, I have recovered well and had no issues whatsoever.

Dr. Meisterling and his assistant Kayla, have been an extended part of my family for the past 10 years. I have degenerative joint disease which has led me to have both knees, one shoulder, two thumbs and, most recently, a hip replaced. Dr. Meisterling and Kayla have walked through them all with me. My recent hip replacement was particularly challenging. Different components of the hardware failed, resulting in two revisions within 3 months of having the initial hip replacement. Dr. Meisterling and Kayla were available, supportive and most importantly, my advocates as we had to schedule each of these procedures. I felt so cared for during the whole ordeal. I am so grateful for this team.

I had refused to seriously consider taking any action for my knee. Dr. Kruse was the first doctor that I felt cared about my care and my future. He gave me hope for the first time in years that I can have my life back!

Dr. Asp, his staff, and all nurses and PT at the EXCEL Program recovery suites were fantastic. I had a right hip replacement with the anterior approach. I was cautiously walking well, right out of the gate, from the surgery center and at the Excel recovery suite. I am an outdoors person and am three weeks out of surgery. I am walking well and already starting to do outdoorsy things I haven’t been able too for a long time.

This may be an early review with my surgery occurring only three weeks ago, so will add another review on my one year anniversary of having my right hip replaced.

I’ve had Dr. Anseth replace my left knee and I am happy with it. I am now scheduled to have my right one replaced. He did an awesome job with the left knee replacement and I expect that same level of care with my next replacement. I feel blessed to have one of the best surgeons the Midwest.

In November 1999, after several years of trying more conservative treatments, Dr. Holte performed L4-5 spinal fusion surgery to relieve stenosis. This was affecting my mobility and causing chronic lower-back pain from normal activities. Some 21 years later, at the age of 70, I remain extremely grateful for the good work and skill of Dr. Holte. While I’m sure medical advances have altered the approach to this surgery, I don’t believe current outcomes could be any better than what I’ve enjoyed these many years and still relish today.

I’ve maintained a highly active life, still participating regularly in cycling, hiking, cross country and downhill skiing, golfing, swimming and several miles of daily walking with our dogs! I’ve also completed several major home improvement projects and volunteer regularly on a building crew with Habitat for Humanity. While “over use” sometimes results in temporary and minor lower back pain, the surgery in 1999 has allowed me to live the life that I was born to live, and I’ll be forever indebted to Dr. Holte for making that possible.

After two failed attempts to fix my thumb, I feel that Dr. Bakker actually listened to me. I truthfully didn’t care what he did because I had researched his qualifications and I felt so comfortable with his decisions, I just wanted to be out of pain and not deal with this left thumb pain anymore! He did exactly what needed to be done. I knew right out of surgery what he did worked because that pain in the pad of my thumb was gone! I’m happy, excited to move forward in my activities (as therapy allows) and stay out of pain!

Also, the staff is so friendly! They call out ‘hello’ when I walk in or ‘thanks, bye now’ when I leave! I love it! I am somebody at TCO!

I highly recommend Dr. Hess. He was my physician for rotator cuff repair. Dr. Hess was professional, as well as very personable. Prior to surgery he explained the procedure in detail and told me expected out comes. His staff offered great follow up support. Thanks to his wonderful work, I am back enjoying golf with no pain.

Dr. O’Keefe did such a great job on my operation. I am very satisfied with his work. I appreciate that he did such great work since it makes my life a lot easier now. I’m so glad I had him as my doctor. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
