After a fall, I had two broken bones in my foot. I was treated at another clinic, by a very rude doctor, who delayed my recovery with the wrong treatment. Twin Cities Orthopedics was recommended and I saw Dr. Engasser, who was very kind and helpful. He had me wear a boot and I was on my was to recovery. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Coetzee‘s team at TCO is the best of the best. From scheduling and consultation, to surgery and beyond, this team inspires confidence. They are caring, kind, cutting-edge medical experts who also value research and shape new procedures in their field. Pre-surgery information was outstanding and I had tremendous support from Lawrence Nilsson, PA-C during recovery, and when questions arose. I can’t say enough good things about this place and these people. I whole-heartedly recommend them!

My son broke both bones in his lower ankle in a basketball game in July. Dr. Holthusen and his team got him in for surgery quickly so our son could start his road to recovery as soon as possible. Being a 3 sport athlete with plans to also play basketball in college, every single day mattered. He was able to return for the end of his senior football season and is currently playing a full basketball season and looking forward to baseball season! We are so incredibly thankful for Dr. Holthusen and his staff for taking excellent care of him! He is back to 100%.

Dr. Coetzee is a great surgeon and more importantly, he was a very positive influence during my healing journey.  Every time we came for an appointment, I left more convinced that I could play in my final senior college season.  Because of that confidence, I overcame the physical and mental challenges from my injury.  Although our team fell just short of the playoffs this year, I was able to finish my UND college career as the #2 all-time for solo tackles, #2 all-time for tackles, 3rd in interceptions, and 5th in a number of other categories (i.e., pass break-ups, single season records)….and I walked off the field using my own two feet!! Next up?  Training for the NFL Combine. I’m forever grateful.

My experience with Dr. Engasser’s practice was outstanding. He let us know immediately that no question was too small and he shared the scan images, upon which he based his evaluations. I am 78 years old and I never felt like he treated me any differently than he might treat younger patients.

I was very pleased and impressed with Dr. Engasser’s knowledge, observations and examinations of my foot. I was uncertain about his recommendation for a steroid treatment initially, but after talking to him I felt it was a very good option. Not only would it relieve the pain, but it would also provide him with the necessary information in case there is a need to treat my foot in the future. I would recommend him to anyone suffering with foot pain without hesitation.

After being in pain for a year from a prior surgery, I went to see Dr. Coetzee at TCO and he is unbelievable. He saved me years of pain and suffering after he performed my surgery. He is a very confident and awesome physician. Thank you so much!

My son (15 year old) was dealing with lateral foot pain. X-rays showed 5th metatarsal fractures on his right foot, and then they showed on his left foot 1 month later. There was no mechanism of injury, he just started hurting with an increase in summer sporting activities. We saw multiple physicians due to the unusual presentation, as it’s typically only one foot and caused by a traumatic event. Fellow healthcare friends advised me to see Dr. Langer. Immediately, he knew we were dealing with a growth plate issue which had an appearance of fractures on an X-ray, but did not clinically present itself like a fracture. He found why this was happening, evaluated X-ray results appropriately, but also used his clinical judgement and was logical in his diagnosis. Without him, my son would be sitting out of fall sports due to these fractures, which weren’t fractures in the first place! Thank you Dr. Langer. You are the BEST!

Dr. Ridley is a smart and caring Orthopedic Surgeon. He knows his stuff. I’ll be using him for my shoulder replacement next year. I am very pleased with his intelligence and bedside manner.

Last summer (July 2020), I was on a 110-mile bike packing journey and ended up fraying my Achilles tendon on my left foot. The pain was excruciating and I was scared because I also didn’t have medical coverage. I felt uneasy and anxious. I was so desperate to get back outside and doing what I love most, running, but scared since I didn’t know how I was going to be able to cover the costs to get it seen or taken care of.

Needless to say, the front support staff at TCO helped me through the process of payment options before I even stepped into the door and they also got me an appointment right away. When I first met Steve Churchill, DPT, the stress and worry seemed to dissipate almost immediately. His knowledge, calm demeanor, and the time he took to answer all my questions left me reassured in a way I don’t normally feel walking away from a doctor’s office.

Steve set me up on a plan right away to return to activity (the first couple of weeks were rest). I felt confident knowing that I had a plan in place, and I was able to check in with him if I had any questions come up or to simply monitor the progress and when to proceed or go back to the next/previous phase of recovery. I was able to return to running by September with his help and expertise. He was even able to identify some of the root sources of why I injured my Achilles and helped me with a prescribed plan to strengthen areas of weakness.

Without Steve and TCO I wouldn’t have been able to win let alone run my first ever 50 mile ultra this summer. I am incredibly grateful for their willingness to work with me financially as well as the energy, effort, and care that Steve provided. Happy running!
