A quick note to express my gratitude on the tremendous job Dr. Kelly did on my rotator cuff surgeries. Two weeks ago I was on a beach, throwing a football with my son, and it was the first time in 25 years that activity was pain-free. I have resumed all of my desired physical activities and cannot thank Dr. Kelly enough.

I am now at 6 weeks post-op from a total knee replacement with Dr. Christopher Meyer and I am certainly feeling as good as I did six weeks pre-op. I expect I will recover endurance and increase muscle tone as I continue to work back into shape. I’ve had knee problems since the age of 14 and have had three surgeries before this one. I am now 56. I feel that six weeks from now, with the consistent work and positive mental attitude, I will have more use of the lower body and better overall quality of life then I have had for many years.

Dr. Kelly and Lindsay made my knee replacement surgery a very comfortable and successful procedure. Before surgery, I was not able to do the physical activities that I wanted and fixing my knee has made it possible to do almost anything I want. I would highly recommend their care. They helped my decide the right time in my life to get the surgery done.

Having Dr. O’Neill and his team perform anterior hip replacement at age 51 was an exceptional decision. Before the surgery, I was in constant pain and unable to enjoy two of my passions – backpacking and biking. The pain kept me awake at night. Just standing up from a chair was difficult. Now I am pain free, strong and enjoying backpacking and biking again. My recovery has exceeded all my expectations. I am currently training to hike to the bottom and back to the rim of the Grand Canyon. My surgically repaired hip is smoother, stronger and more flexible than my natural hip and it has only been 10 weeks since my surgery.
The only thing I would do different is have the surgery done sooner. I stayed one night in the comfort suite and went home with a cane. The first few days after surgery were painful, however the physical therapy exercises and icing were a big help. Every time I went for a walk I felt better. By day 6, I used trekking poles for my outdoor walks. I am glad I took two weeks off from work to rest and recover.
Dr. O’Neill has a caring, supportive, compassionate and wise team who gave my great instructions to speed my recovery. They also provided a helpful booklet. I did extensive research and have family and friends in the medical field. It was clear that the anterior approach was my best option and Dr. O’Neill, and his team, are the best providers of this procedure.

After my knee surgery with Dr. Chris Larson, it was time to move on to my hip issue. Dr. Larson referred me to Dr. Owen O’Neill. We reviewed my X-ray, showing the gap in my hip had closed to become bone on bone. My research showed that waiting for surgery would only make matters worse. Dr. O’Neill and I agreed that an anterior replacement of my right hip would be the best course of action. I would recommend anyone with hip issues to see Dr. O’Neill to evaluate their issues and find a path forward.
As for the post hip replacement procedure…I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH THE RESULTS. I had minimal pain afterwards and was walking within 4 hours after surgery. I am an avid golfer and could not walk the course last summer. It will be awesome to walk pain free this summer. Thanks to Dr. O’Neill and the entire staff at TCO. They all have been terrific to work with.

Dr. Owen O’Neill and his team were very professional. They answered all of my questions. I can now walk with normal gait again and my lower leg isn’t bowing out any more. Physical therapy quickly helped me back to my usual activity. I’m keeping up with my exercises so I can keep improving my strength. I am looking forward to getting back to water skiing and camping by the summer. Thank you Dr. O’Neill and your team. If I need any future surgeries, Dr. O’Neill will be doing it!

Dr. Norberg was fantastic! We had been to 5 different doctors for help, none of whom were able to offer a definitive diagnosis or successful strategies for dealing with the pain. Dr. Norberg was not only able to rapidly diagnose the problem, but answer our questions in a language we understood and offer treatment plans. I thought an orthopedic surgeon was just for surgeries but I no longer think that. Dr. Norberg’s years of experience in diagnosis and treatment enabled him to inform us what is going on and why! He was very personable and took the time to listen to us. He is awesome!

My experience with Dr. Michael Meisterling and his entire team was excellent. Dr. Meisterling is a very skilled surgeon. He has assembled a remarkable team. Each and everyone one of them I found to be skilled, kind, considerate and helpful in every way. My left knee replacement was on 11-24-20 at Osceola Medical Center. My right knee replacement was on 1-19-21 at Lakeview Hospital. Both facilities were also excellent. If I were to give Dr. Meisterling a score of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, I would give him a 10+. Myrna J.

I had a great experience at TCO! Dr. Owen O’Neill explained everything in detail before surgery and followed up afterwards. I could not be happier!!

Dr. Ockuly met me on a short notice appointment, following my primary physician’s referral on the same day. He was knowable and acknowledging of my urgency and impatience for answers to rehabilitation or surgical repair of my broken shoulder. He recommended surgery for the best, cleanest, and most efficient result in getting me back on track to my active lifestyle as soon as possible. It was my first surgical procedure in 48 years of my life and it went very well. He was very communicative in follow-up and referral to skilled rehabilitation experts. I was pain free within a couple weeks of surgery and am now back to full activity and strength 6 months post-surgical repair of my broken clavicle. Thank you TCO team.
