In 2009, I tore my ACL playing soccer. In the late winter of 2019, I tore my ACL again and I saw Dr. Barry. The first week it was painful to walk and then after it popped it felt like nothing happened. I saw Dr. Barry before and after the MRI and we talked about the options I had. He gave me three options, and two of them was not getting surgery but also not being as active as I am now. As a surgeon who usually wants to do surgery, he wanted the best for me in my lifestyle. He asked me what I thought, he also asked me how I felt about what he said. Dr. Barry is a kind-hearted doctor that wants the best for you. He came in before my surgery and asked if I was ready and gave me a lot of time to ask any and all questions. Dr. Barry knew exactly what he was going to do and explained it clearly. One thing I really like is that he works very closely with the physical therapist (PT) and the PT’s keep in contact with him. Dr. Barry’s team is professional but kind and really just wants the best for you. I would have Dr. Barry do another surgery if I needed it. He is really great and honest.

Knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring are words I would use to describe Dr. Cammack and his great staff. I am 6 months post-surgery and from pre-surgery to all the follow-ups during recovery I felt I was in the best possible hands. I never felt rushed and all my questions/concerns were treated with respect and thoughtful consideration. I’m still not 200% but because of how well Dr. Cammack communicates what to expect, I am able to take the incremental progression that at times can be slow in stride and not get to discouraged. Highly recommend!!!

What a great day it was! My surgery was scheduled and performed on time, as promised- by my wonderful surgeon, the best there is, Dr. Moeller. My time in the operating room was filled with smiles and laughter as we chatted away the surgery being performed on my wrist. Before I knew it, we were done. I didn’t have to be put under, pain was controlled, but only lasted a day and my recovery has been wonderful. The scar is barely visible. In fact, I had another doc tell me the incision work was great. Thank you, Dr. Moeller, you released my carpal tunnel so I can finally conduct my life as a two handed person! Bye-bye numbness, hello hand!

I have been a patient of Dr. Szalapski at Twin Cities Orthopedics since 2006 and have always received excellent care. I would never consider going anywhere but TCO. The entire staff starting with the pleasant greeting from the receptionist to the personal attention I receive from Jessica, Dr. Szalapski’s assistant, the X-ray technicians, physical therapists, and Dr. Szalapski himself exceed all of my expectations. I have recommended TCO to my family, co-workers and friends because I know TCO will provide excellent care and quality service. Sharon B.

When I was 16 years old, I was in an accident. I was hit in a head on collision with a fully loaded dump truck. My hip was dislocated and I spent months in the hospital. I am now in my 40’s and over the past several years, the same hip has been giving me so much trouble. No movement, limping, cannot bend and causing me pain in my back and knee. I did my hip replacement with Dr. Steven Meisterling. He was amazing. His nurses and crew were very helpful and professional and after my surgery, I feel like a new man. No pain, more energy and back to work after 6 weeks!! Dr. Meisterling said he even did a lot of “carpentry” work on my hip and yet, I feel better than ever. I cannot express how thankful and grateful I am to have such a talented surgeon make my hip feel brand new again. Thank you Dr. Meisterling, you are a wonderful surgeon. I appreciate you more than you know. Jim O.

Want to thank Dr. Szalapski for his great care of my rotator cuff issue in my shoulder. He’s a magician with a cortisone shot, bringing me great relief the few times I’ve been to see him.  Highly recommend this caring and professional Dr.

When I first saw Dr. Szalapski I was mostly impressed that he wasn’t pushy about doing surgery. He let it totally be my decision on if and when I did the surgery. Once I made the decision to have it done, he sat down and fully explained everything about the procedure and recovery. They didn’t make light that there would be times I was going to be uncomfortable at first. Everyone on his team has made this as painless as can be. I am truly glad I went to him to have this done. So I can say if you follow his instructions and do the work, you will be greatly impressed with how your new knee recovers and feels. Should I ever need to have my other knee done, I will know I will go back to Dr. Szalapski.

I met Dr. Szalapski and had my first hip replaced at 42 years old – scared to death! It went perfectly and no limp. I had my knee replaced at around 50 years old and my other hip done a year later. Last year, I had my shoulder replaced and was told I may only get 70% of my range of motion back – I got 100%. I would never think of anybody but Dr. Szalapski to perform my surgeries when I have had the best care and absolutely no complications!! His support team and Jessica are the best also! Bonus he has a good sense of humor.

A friend of mine has seen Dr. Szalapski for over 20 years and gave him a glowing recommendation! I was struggling with my knees and walking stairs. The minute Dr. Szalapski walked in to see me, he was professional and down to earth! I immediately knew that I was going to like him. He watched me walk and looked at my knees and said right away I needed replacements. We did the left knee three years ago and the right knee this past summer of 2018. I am very happy with the outcome and can do the stairs with no pain. When I wanted more pain meds I was given the maximum allowed and was okay with that because I did not want to become addicted to a medication. I watched a child of mine struggle with addiction and knew that was not something I wanted or needed in my life! When Dr. Szalapski stops the pain meds he is following guidelines. I would recommend him to anyone that needs replacements!

I chose to have my knee replacement surgery with Dr. Szalapski based on the recommendation from my daughter. Dr. Szalapski and his staff walked me through the procedure and explained what to expect for surgery and recovery. 3 months post-surgery and everything is going well and I am feeling better. I would highly recommend Dr. Szalapski and the staff at New Prague surgery department.
