Dr. Owen O’Neill and Jessie Donovan, P. A. were absolutely fabulous throughout the entire knee replacement process. They were very informative, thorough, and reassuring in preparing me for surgery. They answered every question and concern. I always felt listened to and cared for. The surgery was a complete success thanks to their careful preparation and skill during surgery. They were very patient and caring during recovery too. Every e-mail or phone call was answered within hours. After surgery I struggled with sleep issues and they actively helped me find solutions. I followed their instructions and was dedicated to my physical therapy. It’s been 6 months and I feel like a new woman. Thanks so much to both of you!

Dr. O’Neill and his team are simply the best-the very best. From Dr. O’Neill’s anterior technique to the whole team’s concerned care giving, you simply couldn’t find a better group. I was up walking right after surgery and went home just a few days after the operation, and now, after two months, I never feel a thing at my hip and find it hard to believe I even had the operation.

After 4-5 years of walking like a penguin, and with a significant limp, it was time to re-visit Dr. O’Neill and Jessie for a heart to heart serious discussion to remedy my problem. It was a simple explanation of the proposed replacement and the surgery itself. Scared? Oh yeah! I actually found out that my leg WAS NOT going to be cut in two. The surgery and hospital nurses at St. Francis were OUTSTANDING. I highly recommend them. Rehab was exactly what I was told it was going to be. Sometimes uncomfortable, but NOT UNBEARABLE. The physical therapists at Dr. O’Neill’s office were great! Sometimes tough, but not harsh. I worked with Kelly mostly who was outstanding! It is now 3 1/2 months since surgery. My knee truly hasn’t felt this good in close to 10 years. I’m looking forward to deer hunting next month, WITHOUT PAIN. THANK YOU DR. O’NEILL, JESSIE and the physical therapists, especially Kelly.

Dr. O’Neill‘s technical competence matched the patient contact time for an outstanding result. Dr. O’Neill and his staff took the needed time to answer my questions and meet my needs as a patient. I’m very pleased with the outcome.

Smooth! Effective! Humorous! (Whoops, watch the funny bone!) These guys were great. The most difficult after effect was the constipation related to surgery. We can easily live with that. Oops I forgot immediately responsive. The team was there when I needed them. It has not been quite a year and I am at the gym 110 minutes per day as well as walking 3.5 miles per night. Now this is not only on the new hip but also the knee replacement of 2007. Hey carpe diem all.

Less than a month ago, Dr. O’Neill performed a anterior approach total hip replacement on my left hip, and a year ago he performed the same procedure on my right. Both surgeries went extremely well. While I recovered quickly after the first surgery, recovery was even faster for the second. I used a walker for a few days, a cane for about a week, and was walking easily in 10 days. In fact, I am walking more easily now than I have in years.

Since it was clear from the start I needed both hips replaced, we planned a course of action that would work best for me. I am grateful for the individualized care I received from Dr. O’Neill and his team. I have recommended him, and the anterior approach, to several others.

The treatment I received from Dr. O’Neill, the EXCEL team and TCO was fantastic! The continuity of care was complete- each doctor, nurse, therapist, PA, administrative assistant, care coordinator- you name it- everyone coordinated my care and progress in a way that is remarkable for most surgical procedures. I’m less than four months out from a full knee replacement, and able to do most things already, including daily swims half-way across the lake, one of my goals for summer here at the cabin. The only thing slowing me down now is the other knee- which also has arthritis and that I’ll be replacing later this year. Based on my experience with the first knee, I should be on cross country skis by February! I felt totally confident with Dr. O’Neill- he patiently answered ALL my questions before and after surgery- he took the time I needed to be comfortable about what would happen. Thank you to the entire team!

I was so fortunate to find Dr. O’Neill when I needed a knee replacement! Everything went according to what I was told about the surgery and recovery. I was able to get back to my normal routine within 6 weeks and felt great again!

Then, 3 years later, I needed a hip replacement – and again, I was SO relieved to find out that Dr. O’Neill did those, too! All went according to plan and I was out of the hospital the next day and back at work a week later.

It’s only after I had the replacement surgeries that I realized how bad the arthritic pain was.

I am so thankful for Dr. O’Neill and his staff. I’ve been back to my normal daily routine for several months now and am still amazed at how healthy I feel.

Thank you to Dr. O’Neill and his staff for making my life more enjoyable!

From my initial meeting, through the surgery, and post op exam with Dr. O’Neill all resulted in a most positive experience! His “cheerful”, reassuring manner I believe intentionally contributes to the successful outcome for his patients

Some of the attributes of this least invasive, anterior method of surgery include the reduction of pain, eliminates further post op rehab treatment as well as lifting limitations or restrictions following surgery as well as two earlier replaced knee joints which give me a broader sense of comparison.

My endurance has significantly improved, my pain removed, my walking stamina increased and my quality of life is now allowing me to put entertaining and travel back on my calendar. We have a wonderful array of orthopedic surgeons in our area; I believe Dr. O’Neill to be a leader in that group!

Dr. O’Neill has done four joint replacements for me (two hips/two knees) since 2009 and this last one, the direct anterior approach on my left hip was a piece of cake for me to recover from! My first hip replacement in 2009 (the posterior approach) had a long and painful recovery which necessitated my taking many pain pills to be able to get around and, most importantly, be able to sleep. This time, there literally was no pain and I went home on the third day after surgery. I have a split-level home with many stairs and I had no difficulty in getting up and down. Used a walker for two days and a cane for another two and that was the end of that.

Dr. O’Neill and Jessie were wonderful, carefully explaining the surgery and what I needed to do to take care of myself afterwards. I have to admit that I didn’t quite believe Dr. O’Neill when he said that there would be minimal pain with this new type of surgery, but he didn’t lie! It is such a pleasure now to be able to do things and not have to calculate how much pain I can endure. My experiences with Dr. O’Neill and his team have been so favorable that I didn’t hesitate to recommend him to friends who needed joint work done too.
