If you find yourself in need of being put back together, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Engasser. In August 2023, I tripped and fell forward. I landed very hard on my left side and literally couldn’t move. After being admitted to the hospital and told the news, I was told by Dr. Engasser that he would be performing surgery to fix my broken femur/hip the following morning. He explained the procedure and timeframe. The next 12 hours were a blur. When I woke after surgery, Dr. Engasser was there telling me surgery went great and that I should be up walking later that day. True to his word, with the help of internal hardware and a walker, I was up and walking that day.

At a final follow up visit after PT, Dr. Engasser said the X-rays were textbook perfect. Bone growth and anchors were exactly where they needed to be. There was no difference from leg to leg, and no glitches in gait when walking. I felt I’d been given a miracle. Dr. Engasser and his staff are by far the best orthopedic specialist team I could have been blessed with. I’m 68 years old and have broken a lot of bones. I am just so very thankful Dr. Engasser was on call the weekend I needed him. Absolute best!

Wow, Twin Cities Orthopedics Forest Lake is incredible! I brought my husband there the day after Thanksgiving due to severe hip/leg pain. The gal at the front desk brought a wheelchair to get him into the office and get us checked in. The staff were knowledgeable, caring, and professional! They took X-rays, found the issue and we gave us clear instructions on how to deal with his situation. The gal at the front desk got us quickly set up with physical therapy appointments and an appointment with the Orthopedic surgeon if needed. We were in and out in an hour! I would highly recommend Twin Cities Orthopedics Urgent Care Forest Lake. We were really amazed and so appreciative of the great care we received!

Thank you Dr. Arthur and Sarah for squeezing my 85 year old mother in for femur surgery at 5pm on Sunday of Labor Day Weekend 2023! You had a full roster that day, so I am so grateful that you were able to relieve her of terrible pain. The follow up X-ray in October could have been a nightmare, as my mother was rolled out of bed that morning at assisted living. She was very scared and in some pain from that fall. We worked together to ensure her comfort to and get her on the X-ray table successfully. I truly appreciate you both. Caregiving is a very difficult journey, so the support you both provided is absolutely a silver lining.

I am astounded that I was able to get into this wonderful clinic on just a moments notice. They take walk-ins! Travis Urbatch, PA-C was so personable and took X-rays for me. He ended up giving me a steroid shot for the pain in my overused knee. I was so thrilled. He was also willing to do the same for my painful finger joint so it wouldn’t lock up without feeling like I had to break it to get it to straighten out! All of that was done in one walk-in visit. I have to travel soon and the thought of hurting so much in the trip was worrying me. Thank you Travis. You are a great provider.

In early March of 2023, I fell on some ice and tore my quad. Dr. James Bircher performed surgery the next morning at North Memorial Hospital in Maple Grove. He was kind, open, and honest with me the whole way through. I’m 76 years old and the pain and healing process went amazingly well! Thanks to Dr. Bircher’s surgical skills, along with his staff. I seem to be doing just fine. My other remarks are about my physical therapists at TCO. Leah and Nichole were simply the best I could ask for!

I am grateful that Dr. Jeremiah Johnson was the on-call trauma surgeon when I needed emergency surgery on a weekend. He is bright and compassionate. He is an analytical and innovative problem-solver. He is astute and attentive, nothing falls through the cracks. In addition, he has assembled an amazing support team. My recovery will take time and it’s comforting to know that they are there.

In April 2023 I fell at the gym, landing on my right hip and was in terrible pain. My husband took me to TCO Urgent Care in Vadnais Heights. I was seen right away and X-rays showed a hip fracture. The staff worked hard to find an operating room available for emergency surgery and I was told that Dr. Leafblad would do my surgery the next morning at Hudson Hospital. He talked to me on the phone, explaining the surgery, and after talking to him I felt relieved that there was a good plan in place. We went to the hospital and met him the next morning before surgery. The surgery went well and I have been following up with him at two, six, and twelve weeks post-op. I will see him two more times. Dr. Leafblad is a wonderful doctor and it’s obvious he cares about how I’m recovering from my injury. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Leafblad, his staff, and TCO.

We couldn’t be happier with our experience at TCO. My kids are getting older (10 & 12) and more active. There have been a few times over the past 6 months where they hurt themselves playing sports and we weren’t sure if it needed additional treatment or not. TCO was efficient, affordable and we didn’t have to wait a crazy amount of time to be seen. They were thoroughly examined and we were given peace of mind of an action plan moving forward. TCO has now become our go-to for urgent care active related injuries.

I am from California and was visiting my son and his family in Woodbury, MN. I slipped on ice, fell and broke my wrist. I saw both Dr. Holmes and Dr. Karlstad at Twin Cities Orthopedics. I was very emotional to learn I needed surgery. The doctors, their nurses and office staff were so thorough, accommodating, and helpful. They were prepared to get me into surgery as soon as possible. They helped me make the decision to go home early and have the surgery there. I appreciate being a visitor, the time they spent with me, and resources they provided. I highly recommend Twin Cities Orthopedics!

I highly recommend TCO and Dr. Ridley. I had a 5-star experience from my initial visit to urgent care, to being discharged from therapy post-surgery. Dr. Ridley was personable, professional and highly skilled. He did a fantastic job on my surgery and my scar is barely noticeable. I don’t want to go through another injury, but if I do, I won’t go anywhere else.
