I had a minimally invasive right anterior hip replacement on 10/16/2015 by Dr. O’Neill. It is truly a miracle for which I am very grateful. For the first time in over 18 months, I am walking without pain. I have a range of motion that amazes me.

I had polio as a 9 year old and had 3 surgeries on both legs and feet and now have worn bilateral leg braces for 16 years because I have post-polio syndrome. I was fearful of more surgery and I think even the EXCEL staff was leery of my disabilities but I can safely say that I have made it through the surgery in excellent shape. The first time I stood up in the recovery room I knew the pain was gone!

I highly recommend this surgery to anyone who needs a new hip! I also highly recommend Dr. O’Neill and all the staff at TCO including Eileen, Alyssa & Jessie. The EXCEL nurses and PTs were also terrific. All of my appointments were timely and the front desk staff are wonderful. Dr. O’Neill is very kind and thorough and humorous and I am so thankful for him. I am a RN and have been for 40 years and we nurses are very discerning and sometimes we aren’t the best patients, but this was a truly remarkable experience for me and my husband.

I have seen Dr. Szalapski for chronic pain in my shoulder, as well as ongoing monitoring of foot deformities caused by Charcot Foot syndrome. The shoulder was resolved with shot of cortisone (which I barely felt). Being severely diabetic, I believe I can say with honesty that without his recommendations and care, I would have lost one or both of my feet by now. Under Dr. Szalapski’s guidance, I have also seen several other providers in that same office for one surgery on a finger and two on a foot. One of the foot injuries could have been crippling, but healed wonderfully. I am a nurse by trade, so my standards are pretty exacting. I heartily recommend the entire staff there, and especially Dr. Szalapski.

If someone ever would tell me I would look forward to an 8″ needle (I think; I never look) going straight into my hip, I would walk straight away. More likely, limp. Having seen Dr. Hunt and getting the crusty-hip-on-the-road-to-replacement diagnosis, I was given options to delay the inevitable. And this would be those injections. I had a dislocated knee in junior high and had a really bad needle in the knee joint aspiration so when Dr. Hunt suggested this, I got the queasies. Not a very willing patient. And that is where Nick Meath comes in. Straighforward, down-to-earth, deadpan funny, beyond professional Nick the Needle. He explained his ultrasound targeting procedure and assured me he just didn’t miss. And you know what? He doesn’t. While I don’t look forward to heading in for a top-off, I have come to trust Nick and his competence completely. Knowing that when my replacement day comes, Nick will be part of the surgical team reassures me to no end. I cannot commend this young man enough for the patience, care, and compassion he has shown me. He is just that good! Thank you, Nick.

I tore my ACL about two months ago now and was absolutely blown away at the service I got from both Dr. Heikes and TCO. From the initial visit, to the MRI, to the surgery, I was given amazing service. I have had other surgeries where the doctor barely remembers your name, but that wasn’t the case with Dr. Heikes. She did such a great job explaining what the process, recovery, PT was going to look like and even went over and above checking in with me post-op. I coach soccer at Edina High School and have recommended Dr. Heikes and TCO to many of my athletes. They all come back to me saying the same thing, “Dr. Heikes was awesome!” I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend TCO or Dr. Heikes!

I’m so grateful for my recent appointment with Dr. Moser! Because of all my “obstacles” I sometimes wonder if it’s silly that I’m so deadset on going forward again with ballet (as far as I can), and it was so validating to hear his encouragement of the strengths I do have/reasons it makes sense for me physically to dance, as well as the understanding of what specifically I was experiencing and why. I’ve never seen a doctor before who was so equipped to discuss dance-specific issues and terminology, it was a revelation and I’m really excited to work with Meredith. Thank you for taking me seriously and for cheering me on.

From the moment I met with Dr. O’Neill I felt at ease and comfortable with the decision to go ahead with my hip replacement. I was bone on bone and in pain. They scheduled me pretty quickly. I had it done at Southdale Fairview and everyone was wonderful. They took such great care of me and Dr. O’Neill and his assistant, Jessie Donovan, are true professionals with a great bedside manner. All my follow up appointments assured me I was on track to my recovery. I would highly recomend Dr. O’Neill to any of my friends or family. Thank you so much for taking such great care of me. My hip is perfect!

On Dec. 3, 2012, I fell from a ladder hanging Christmas lights. My kneecap was broken into three pieces, and my wrist was broken from trying to catch the fall. My wrist was at right angle to my forearm. Dr. Arthur did the surgery, and I have never been happier. No problems, no aches, just healing from a terrible fall. My wife and I both talk about how excellent the surgery went, even today, September 2015. I would certainly recommend Dr. Arthur to anyone, anytime.

My recent back surgery was very successful. I feel better than I have for several years; I am able to go up and down stairs without any pain. I am looking forward to being able to do things I have not been able to do because of my back issues and pain. I thank Dr. Deal and Twin Cities Orthopedics for the great work they do.

The staff at TCO are wonderful! The front desk gals have been great, but the care that I’ve received from Dr. Olmstead has been exceptional. He has administered my wrist casts quickly and gently, while being very friendly and personable. At one point, one of my casts started to become uncomfortable, and Dr. Olmsted squeezed me in last minute and came up with a solution to help me out. I’m glad to choose to go to Twin Cities Orthopedics for my broken wrist. It’s been a very good experience.

I was most definitely not looking forward to my surgery beforehand but I couldn’t be more pleased with Dr. Barry and his team. I was very impressed with his patience and making sure I (and my wife) had all questions answered and not once did I feel like I was just a knee. He also had a humble confidence that is great to see in a doctor of his stature. I’m not a big testimonial writer but felt this was deserved…
