This experience has been what I was hoping for. After doing extensive research on most highly recommended surgeons for knee replacement, I was fortunate enough to get in to see Dr. Owen O’Neill at TCO. Everything was explained in detail, a class was offered, I was given support people to call with my pre-and post-surgery questions (and believe me I had many). The compassion, care, intelligence, skill, was unsurpassed and beyond my expectation. The physical therapy support at TCO was sensational. I had many concerns and they were addressed. I was encouraged and custom therapy sessions were given to me by their outstanding staff and reassurance that I was progressing was given.

An outstanding PT person at TCO Edina, was Kari. She knew when I was struggling, frustrated and encouraged me that the outcome would be worth it. It was. Few things I would recommend to others: wait to see a quality surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Owen O’Neill, and I am very particular and do my research. Rent an ice machine for after care. Do your physical therapy on schedule. Find ways to comfortably elevate your leg and sleep. Book all your physical therapy appointments with people that you are can relate to and understand you and are patient. Check with the doctor if you are concerned. I was skeptical if this was the right course of action and there is no doubt in my mind now, it was the best decision.

Having been very active most of my adult life, it was difficult for me to start giving up all the sports I had enjoyed because I couldn’t manage the pain anymore. My doctor and nurse friends recommended Dr. Christopher Meyer and I am SO thankful to have followed through with him and his staff. It’s been 3 months from my surgery and I’m cross country skiing again, lifting weights, and walking at a 15 minute mile pace! I am beyond ecstatic to have my life back. Thank you SO very much Dr. Meyer and your amazing staff!

After years of shoulder pain and decreased mobility I started the process of having shoulder replacement surgery. Dr. Mair was highly recommended by a family member, so I chose to go with him. I feel it was the best decision. From my first appointment, through surgery and two post-op appointments, Dr. Mair was a real pleasure to work with. My surgery was a total success. I haven’t had any issues and my recovery is ahead of schedule. I always felt I was in great hands and had complete trust in him. It’s amazing to be able to do things I haven’t been able to do for years, and without pain or grinding. The best advice I can give anyone who is on the fence about joint replacement, is to go ahead and get it done. Stop dealing with the pain. Even better advice is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mair at Twin Cities Orthopedics!

I had a left knee replacement in September 2020 and my right knee was done in September 2022. Both knee replacements were completed by Dr. Owen O’Neill. First of all, his team is exceptional! His care team called me at home to address questions I sent via email. His care coordinator, Ann, is the best in the business! They had fast replies to my  questions, even when I stated it wasn’t an emergency. After my left knee surgery, I was hitting golf balls in the garage after two months and golfing in Florida after three months. With my right knee, I am playing pickleball and golfing in the simulator after two months.

As those of you who have had knee replacements know, it’s a tough few weeks but it’s well worth it! Stick to your physical therapy. I doubled up on PT at home, going above what they advised, and bought a cheap stationary bike to improve my range of motion. I’m looking forward to walking 18 holes again in the summer. If you’re thinking of getting knee replacement, don’t wait! I can’t recommend Dr. O’Neill, Isabel and Ann enough! They’re the best. I should mention, I’ve seen some ugly scars when people have a knee replacement, but my scars are barely noticeable because Dr. O’Neil uses glue instead of staples. That’s just another reason to choose him!

I had my hip replaced by Dr. Hartigan on November 14th.  I was up walking that afternoon pain free! What a joy! All the staff at the surgery center and in the EXCEL program were great. I had wonderful care. They took time to discuss options for medications and answered all of my questions. Unlike in a hospital, when I pushed my button for a request, they came instantly. Everyone from the driver of the van, to the support staff, nurses and PT were friendly and kind. I never felt rushed.

Both Dr. Hartigan and his PA, Aaron, have the best bedside manner. They took plenty of time to answer all my questions, and never rushed me out. I always felt very well taken care of. I cannot say enough about the wonderful program. My only suggestion is on some of the TCO branded clothing, it should say “ask me about my new joint!”. Thank you for everything. I am so enjoying life pain free!

Dr. Arthur performed my knee replacement surgery on June 9, 2022. This past month, my wife and I went on a hiking trip to Sedona AZ. Six months to the day after my surgery, I spent three days hiking in the desert and mountains of Arizona. I just wanted to say thank you to the whole team there at TCO and the EXCEL program. Last year I would not have been able to take that trip.

I went to Dr. Hunt after being referred to him by a friend. My shoulder had deteriorated from osteoarthritis, due to wear and tear brought on by an active lifestyle. I was approaching this procedure with trepidation due to the long recovery time associated with shoulder replacement. I am now 10 weeks past my surgery date and my shoulder is doing great. I am way ahead of where I thought I would be at this time. My 2 month post-op with Dr. Hunt included an X-ray image of my new shoulder joint and everything looked great with textbook alignment and positioning. I credit Dr. Hunt’s skill and experience with this really good outcome. Regular physical therapy is also key. My other shoulder is next on the list for replacement and I am sure I will be going back to Dr. Hunt.

I’d like to thank Dr. Knowlan and his care team for the outstanding service and care they provided before, during and after my procedure. I cannot say enough about TCO and their staff. They provided competent and professional care and communication every step of the way. Thanks again!

In the fall of 2021, Abby’s foot hurt while running during cross country meets. We saw several doctors, including orthopedic ones. She had an MRI also. No one could figure it out and another orthopedic doctor said there is nothing wrong. As a frustrated mom, I called Twin Cities Orthopedics. She had an appointment with Dr. Paul Langer. At her appointment he immediately diagnosed her with the collapsed arch. He prescribed inserts. Wearing the inserts and special exercises helped her recover. This last fall season, her cross country team made it to the Minnesota State Cross Country meet. We will be forever grateful to the care she received and will always recommend them to family and friends!

My “back” story started in February 2022. My pain started in my right hip and radiated down my right leg. As the weeks went by, the pain in my right hip and leg continued to increase. The pain increased to the point that it became very difficult to get out bed, stand from a sitting position, or walk any distance longer than a block. I attempted other treatment options, including Chiropractic treatments, to try and relieve the pain with no success. I turned to Twin Cities Orthopedics for help. I was diagnosed with instability at L 4-5, which shocked me since I had no back pain. I had a spinal injection, oral steroids, and physical therapy. These produced mild improvement but the pain returned. I met with Dr. Hoel and immediately felt confident in him. He had extensively reviewed my case and images and explained to me point by point what was going on with my back. We discussed my options and his recommendations. I felt it was a real patient-doctor relationship keeping my best interest in mind. I’m very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and with the care I received from Dr. Hoel and his staff. I would highly recommend him. He will take very good care of you!
