I tore two hamstrings and ripped the third one on my left leg. I saw Dr. Ridley and 1.5 days later I was in surgery. He did an amazing job and always helped me if I had questions. I have returned for a shoulder injury already, and will continue to come back to TCO if needed.

I wanted to reach out to say thank you to Dr. Johnson and give him an update on my left knee. His last-ditch insistence and guidance to increase my Allopurinol dosage before proceeding with an unnecessary scope seems to have addressed a problem that was having a huge negative impact on my life. Dr. Johnson is a true professional and someone I will absolutely go back to with any future issues if they occur. He was always very transparent, honest, positive, patient, and understanding with the care he provided. Thanks again for the great care provided by Dr. Johnson and the TCO staff.

I have been under the care of Dr. Lewis and Libby Witchger, PA-C for several years with knee issues. I had a very busy life for a long time and surgery was not in the cards, so I had several cortisone shots to both knees that served me well. However, both Dr. Lewis and Libby knew the correct answer all along and were very supportive in my decision. The time came where the cortisone shots didn’t last and the pain caused my lifestyle to change drastically.

Libby would listen to me and always be so supportive in helping me walk through this. She was incredibly patient. Everything they said that would happen, did happen. My knee just couldn’t get me through the day anymore. I’ll be honest, I was somewhat in fear of the surgery itself which was a huge factor for me. I was so grateful knowing I had Dr. Lewis and Libby doing the surgery. The surgery, the tremendous support (throughout all these years) and after care was absolutely amazing. I could not have asked for better care. I will always be grateful for all that these two have done for me. Eventually the other knee will have to be replaced and I will have no reservations the second time around and hope to have the same team again. Thank you Dr. Lewis and Libby. You are amazing!

I  lived with knee pain for at least 74 years. The past 5 years have been really bad. I finally decided to do something about it. I can’t thank the staff at TCO and Dr. Arntson enough for changing my life. I had a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago and what a difference it has made! I can now go up and down flights of stairs normally. Long walks and talks with my husband are a daily treat, since before I really couldn’t walk due to the pain. I can walk the aisles at the grocery store. Cooking recipes that require over 5 minutes to cook are a pleasure since I can stand to make them.

However, most importantly, I can be the grandma my grandchildren deserve and love. I only missed 3 weeks of babysitting due to surgery. Those first hugs when I returned were worth it. This surgery was life changing for me. I only wish I would have done it sooner.

My most recent surgery with Dr. Hunt was truly amazing. I dislocated my kneecap when I was out of state, 4 weeks after my total knee replacement. I was out of network and getting quite a bit of conflicting and distressing diagnoses from medical folks in the state I was in. Dr. Hunt said to come back and he’d fix me up. I travelled back (an adventure in and of itself) and he assessed, made a game plan and got me fixed. He and his team were great. The experience was very distressing and the fact I had Dr. Hunt to help me was phenomenally reassuring. So far, he’s fixed my right shoulder, replaced both knees and did the last-minute fix up of my dislocated kneecap as described above. I am beyond grateful. He has been kind, nice, efficient, knowledgeable and fun to have as my surgeon. Can’t speak highly enough about him and his team. Dr. Hunt has also done surgery on 3 of my friends’ (knees and shoulders) and they have all had great experiences too.

My grandson, Malachi, had injured his knee playing lacrosse, dislocating his kneecap for the 4th time. I brought him to the emergency room where they x-rayed his knee. The x-ray had shown his injured dislocated kneecap. The hospital then referred us to Twin Cities Orthopedics where Malachi had an MRI that showed his torn ligament. We met with Dr. Ridley and he explained what Malachi’s injury was, then showed us the x-ray and MRI and how he would fix Malachi’s knee. The surgery was a success and the recovery has been remarkable! From the beginning of the process to the end, TCO has been fantastic. I highly recommend Dr. Ridley for his skill and for taking his time to explain what happened and how he was going to repair Malachi’s knee. TCO’s therapy staff has taken a very positive approach to getting his strength and mobility back. Twin Cities Orthopedics has a five-star rating from Malachi and I.

Dr. Ridley was there on the field the night of my injury. That night, he told me the possible outcomes and gave me the support I needed. In the consultation appointments that followed, he gave me information of what was to come. After surgery to reconstruct my ACL and LCL with a meniscus repair, he had a clear plan on what I needed to do to recover. Dr. Ridley was there for every step and was supportive in so many ways!

Dr. Meyer and staff, you deserve a million pats on the back and stream of thank you’s. Your team has a combination of caring and professionalism. The team members involved run like a well-oiled gear. I could tell you were invested in my knee replacement and doing the same for others as well. You are doing an awe-inspiring job meeting and dealing with your patients in a time where their anxiety is high, and uncertainty abounds. Your team of nurses, physician assistant, surgical team and therapists have caught your caring spirit, they are wonderful too! Tub full of “thanks” for making a difference in my life!

I seriously couldn’t have had a better experience at TCO and with Dr. Kelly. The only other place where I have experienced such nice and wonderful staff is Disney World! From the intake nurse, the surgical team, the nurses and therapy staff at the care suites, everyone was extremely nice and made me feel very comfortable the entire stay. I have been singing your praises to everyone that I talked to after the surgery. My mother, also a nurse, would always say to find a place that will treat you like your own family would, and TCO did just that. I’m so happy that I sought out a second opinion at TCO.
