I am more than satisfied with my shoulder replacement. I felt cared for and respected in a compassionate, competent, and professional way, from my office visits to the operating room and all through the physical therapy. My shoulder operates beyond my expectations and I am free of pain. Dr. Norberg and his team are to be congratulated for their thoughtfulness and excellent abilities.

Words can’t express the severe pain that my bone-on-bone hip caused me.  My total hip replacement procedure went extremely well and I was fortunate to not have a single pain in my hip after surgery.  I went home the next day.  What a relief it is to once again be able to put on and tie my shoes, get into low cupboards, and do all the other things requiring a good hip.  I would refer Dr. O’Neill to anyone suffering from hip problems.  He and his assistant, Jessie, provided me with the best care and support one could hope for.

Overall I had an excellent experience with Dr. Teynor and the EXCEL Program. I was in the EXCEL Program for my second knee replacement. There were two things I most appreciated. First, the post surgery care was very personalized and the setting was much better for recovery compared to a hospital. Second, the single bill that covered the entire procedure was much appreciated. I highly recommend this program for those who qualify.

After five years of degenerative hip issues, I had my right hip replaced by Dr. O’Neill through TCO’s EXCEL Program. Three days after surgery I was walking without discomfort or use of a walker. Two weeks post surgery I was back on my bike riding without pain or restrictions. I am looking forward to having my left hip replaced by Dr. O’Neill within the next 12-24 months. TCO and Dr. O’Neill provided an exceptional patient experience for me.

The hip replacement surgery went better than I could have ever expected, just like Dr. O’Neill said it would. Very impressed with every single staff member and the EXCEL Program. It was great. I have referred a friend who took another friend with her. That is how much I believe in your program.

I had been seeing Dr. Brian O’Neill for several years for arthritis in my knee. I finally reached the point where it made sense to schedule my TKA surgery, and I was so pleased when Dr. O’Neill suggested the EXCEL Program. Knowing that infection is a serious risk with the surgery, and also knowing that the risk of contracting an infection in the hospital was even higher, I was ecstatic to find out that I could avoid hospitalization altogether. I was also thrilled to be given the opportunity to recuperate in a non-hospital setting that wasn’t a transitional care facility.

The entire experience was positive. The staff was amazing. My primary care nurse, Ashley Swenson, was fantastic. She was supportive and gave me all the information I needed in a way that was respectful and informational. Her care during my stay at the EXCEL suites couldn’t have been better, as well as the PT. I so much appreciated the comfortable environment that didn’t feel like a clinical setting. It was so helpful to have the physical therapy room right across the hall, and to be able to work with the PT during my stay in an environment that was so inviting. Ashley’s discharge instructions were thorough and easy to understand. She was even willing to talk with me and respond to emails following my surgery, which was so appreciated and helpful.

Marni Gorowsky, my EXCEL RN contact, was an absolute angel throughout my recuperation after I left the EXCEL facility. I cannot overly express how incredibly comforting, helpful and essential it was to be able to email Marni throughout my recovery. I had the added hassle and discomfort of coming down with severe bronchitis at the same time, and Marni’s coaching and advice helped me and my husband through some pretty dark hours. She allayed my fears and gave me fantastic direction on how to manage my pain, swelling, anemia and general recovery.

I honestly cannot imagine going through the TKA experience any other way. And, finally, the PT experience at the TCO PT office with Seth Engberg was equally positive. Seth personalized my PT so that I always felt my unique physical abilities were taken into account. I was adamant about increasing my strength and range of motion, and Seth worked with me to find the best exercises that fit my personal goals.

It has been six months since my surgery. While I have to say it was by far the physically most difficult and painful thing I have ever experienced, I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I have my full range of motion back, far beyond what I had hoped. My knee is less swollen than it has been in many years. I am virtually pain-free and drug-free. I rarely, if at all, even take an ibuprofen, where it previously was part of my regular “diet” along with much stronger drugs.

I am golfing, biking, walking, and back to work at a much higher level of physical stamina than before. And I do believe that Dr O’Neill’s elegant work and the outstanding care model of the EXCEL Program are largely responsible. I’ve spoken to other TKA patients who did not have any where near the positive recovery experience that I have had.

Thank you Dr. Brian O’Neill, TCO, Ashley, Marni, and Seth! Keep doing what you are doing.

I had an incredible experience from start to finish. Dr. O’Neill and the staff were wonderful, and the EXCEL Program is excellent. Would recommend to anyone.

Excellent experience! I was home in one day and I never required use of a walker or cane. Went back to hot yoga five times per week after my six week check up. Pain free! I hiked in Europe (Corsica and Sardinia) less than six months after replacement. It was a 15 day trip with 4-7 hours of hiking per day.

Remarkable! Great care from a great team!

Who’d want to have surgery again?
DON’T point a finger at me
for once was enough
till the pain was so tough
if I had one more hip, I’d do three!

I’m thankful for Dr. O’Neill
who opened me up once before
with a saw and a chisel
my blood, it did drizzle
and my hip, he did then restore!

Oh, hippity doo dah day
the “Sunshine” is bright and intense!
Hip Two has been done
and now I can run
and stand in my own defense!

The tools in the surgeons’ hands
plus such gifted use of recall
since the brains in his head
with “study” were fed
and our God created it all!

Thank you dear Lord for this doc
you’ve so blessed him with talents and gifts
as he’s shared all these skills
one now needs less pills
NO PAIN, thus their spirit uplifts!

A new person I now have become
and old person, not anymore!
This doctor has given
new life that’s now driven
A life that he thus did restore!

A man’s life is much like a river
God can mold it to twist and to turn
If he follows God’s leading
his skills thus exceeding
yet he’s forever still open to learn!

May our focus be less on the material
for all things soon wither and die
but the gifts from above
are given in love
to extend humanity’s cry!

Lord bless this dear doctor his life
and continue to fill and restore
his pep and his skill
along with goodwill
to share with a hundredfold more!

Two hip poems I thus now have written
my surgeries have come to an end
these poems are sincere
about a surgeon’s career
and a surgeon I still recommend!

Dr. Comfort has done my knee replacement and my rotator cuff repair. He performs excellent surgery techniques and informed me of what to expect during recovery and when I would be back to normal activity. Very professional and knowledgeable in orthopedics. Dr. Comfort cares about his patient and gives high quality care. He has excellent staff, Molly his nurse, and David his assistant.  Together they a make a necessary surgery easy to understand. They explain what needs to be done, and are also available to answer your questions. They are kind, caring, and are looking for your best care possible. I highly recommend Dr. Comfort for your orthopedic care!
