Dr. Teynor replaced my left hip last year and I could not be more pleased with the results. My pain is a distant memory and my posture is better than it has ever been. I may not be sprinting like I once did but I can walk with the best of them.

I am extremely grateful to Dr. O’Neill, Jessie and his staff. I had struggled with constant hip pain for almost a year. I finally realized it was more than an overworked muscle and went to see Dr. O’Neill (he was suggested by a friend who is in the medical world). I was diagnosed with Arthritis in my left hip. Dr. O’Neill suggested direct anterior hip replacement. He explained the surgery and the benefits that went along with this procedure. He and his staff worked to schedule me in for surgery as soon as possible.
The surgery was performed at St. Francis Hospital on March 30, 2015. All the staff at St. Francis was wonderful. I was back in my room by 2 p.m. I felt wonderful! I was up and standing without a walker or crutches by 6 p.m. I was walking the hallways of St. Francis the next morning; I was also able to do steps without any assistance. I had absolutely no pain, it was amazing. I was fortunate; I never had to take any pain medication after the surgery.
I left St. Francis the day after surgery. I was back to work in 2 weeks. My life is back to my normal, which is busy. I have 3 adorable grandchildren from 5 months to 2 years that I can carry, crawl and run with. I am back to being able to walk, exercise, garden, shop without having to take Advil, Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
Thank you so much Dr. O’Neill, Jessie and all the staff I am able to move freely without pain!

I had no real pain in the hip area, rather my back. Thinking I needed to go to physical therapy. X-rays proved that my hip had dissolved, much to my shock. Dr. Anseth said he had no idea how I walked ! I had totally hip replacement on Thursday and went to work on Monday. Missing only a day of work. I can’t recommend this great doctor enough. I am a great walking advertisement for his great work. Also I didn’t need pain killers for work..

Dear Dr. Christopher Larson,
I would like to thank you and your staff for all the help you gave me with me hip. Two other orthopedics suggested a hip replacement. But at the age of 38 (at that time) the doctors didn’t want to perform a replacement on me. You were able to repair the damage without replacement. Hip surgery was March 2014.
For almost 2 years, I had a hard time making it through a 50 hour work week. I had to avoid some of my activities (hiking, rock climbing, & boating). Riding in a vehicle was difficult, also. But after my hip surgery and physical therapy, I am almost 100%!!! I am very excited to say, I am back to hiking and rock climbing.
My husband and I are currently vacationing in Arizona. Here is a picture of me (circled in green) climbing the Bell Rock in Sedona AZ, 1 year after surgery. I was able to make it half way up this rock (I didn’t want to push it too hard). With a couple more months of training, I will be able to climb the entire rock.
Thanks isn’t enough for what you and your staff have done for me!!!

The services I received from Dr. Larson and his staff were superb. I have never been treated as well as I was there. From his staff at Twin Cities Orthopedics over to Crosstown Surgery Center; are all very considerate and made this whole ordeal as good as it could be. I’m continuing PT at one month post-op currently. Look forward to gaining my physical health back and living pain free again.

Dr. Anseth is the best. I had severe swelling and pain from my injury and he saw me on a Saturday (his day off) and did everything possible to aid in my recovery.

After talking with 2 other Dr’s, I met Dr. Owen O’Neill and instantly felt I had the right fit for me. Now just under a month after a hip replacement, I cannot recommend Dr. O’Neill and his staff enough. My wife said it best when we went to the pre-op class “You couldn’t possibly be in better hands”. As a 36 year old who wants to get the most mileage out of this I needed to find someone I was comfortable with and trusted to do what was best for me. I amazed day by day at the progress. Bottom line: If you are looking for someone that is truly passionate about helping people from the first conversation to the post surgery recovery, I honestly don’t believe you can find a better person to work with. Sit down and talk with him and see for yourself.
I wanted to tell you how glad I am that I came in to see you and that I had the two cortisone shots in my hips. I am virtually pain free now, and I am able to sleep comfortably. I only wish I would have made an appointment to see you sooner.
Being able to have the consultation, x-rays and procedure done all in one appointment was really convenient. I appreciate that very much.
Also, I want to thank you again for all the wonderful care you gave Megan from the first time you saw her in urgent care in February until her last appointment with you in August. You really made a difficult situation that much easier with your medical expertise and compassion. She wants to continue her education after high school graduation with a desire of becoming an orthopedic doctor as she one day hopes to be able to help people with the same understanding and care you gave her. The same can be said for Stephanie as she was so nice to work with and always answered any questions we had. She always made sure Megan was comfortable during her cast appointments as well as other follow-up appointments. We can’t say enough about the care you both gave her at TCO.

Dr. Diekmann is the only choice for me and my family when it comes to needing help with bone & muscle problems. He has served us very well for well over 20 years. I could go on with many details but just want people to know that this is a Dr. that will care for you very well.

Thank you for the opportunity to give you my comment on my procedures. The results of my new hips could not have been better. North Memorial, all of the nurses, and Dr. Brian O’Neill were the best. Both times, my progress in healing was so fast, after 12 to 14 days I was walking without even a cane. I never took the pain medication because I never needed them. My hips were one year apart and the second one was about a year and a half ago. I have been pain free, no problems at all. So again, I thank all those involved in resolving me to a pain free life. My wife has two new knees and our daughter has a new hip with the same results from Dr. Brian O’Neill. We couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you all.
