I had a left knee replacement 3 months ago and am now walking 1.5 miles daily! Prior to surgery, I could barely walk 2 miles in one week with the pain I had. I did my exercises as much as could before surgery and definitely did the exercises after surgery. Physical therapy is a must. It’s not an easy surgery and takes time to heal. I thank Dr. Mair and TCO for their excellent care before and after surgery! I highly recommend them!

Dr. LaPrade and team are the best!

I am a 66-year-old athlete and have been active in multiple sports my whole life. I still compete in rigorous, endurance Mountain Bike Cycling events. Dr. LaPrade repaired a “complete tear of my posterior meniscal root” in August of 2021. I am happy to report that I am 100% back to aggressively participating in Cycling Endurance events.

When I was finally diagnosed with the complete root tear via an MRI after months of waiting for an appointment with an Ortho surgeon, I was told by the local surgeons here in New Mexico that I could have a “trim” or a “knee replacement” and that my knee problem was classified as a “devastating injury”. I could not find a surgeon in New Mexico who could do the type of complex knee surgery Dr. LaPrade offers. So, I sent my MRI to Dr. LaPrade’s office and they offered to see me. I flew to Minnesota and Dr. LaPrade and staff said they could repair the damage in my knee, and I should be able to return to my athletic passions after recovery and Physical Therapy.

Honestly, I never expected the high level of care I received from Dr. LaPrade’s team and Twin Cities Orthopedics. After surgery, I spent 3 weeks working with Dr. LaPrade’s Physical Therapy team and returned to Minnesota after 8 weeks to get my walk and gait on track with PT appointments. Then I returned two more times for regular check-ups and Trac testing. I am immeasurably grateful for what this astounding team did for me.

Dr. LaPrade has assembled a group of extraordinarily talented individuals for Physical Therapy and basic wellbeing. I’d like to especially mention Amanda, the clinical assistant, who seems to have put the whole process together. The physical therapy staff who took special care of me with PT for the first few weeks after surgery. Chris, the physician assistant, answered all our questions with patience and grace. And of course, Dr. LaPrade and his special talents whom obviously excels at his craft and helped me to keep walking around, with the original knee equipment that I was born with intact.

Needless to state, I highly recommend Dr. LaPrade and staff at Twin Cities Orthopedics for your orthopedic needs.

I am 72 years old, am 4 days post op and walking around! I cannot differentiate my new hip from my remaining hip. I highly recommend Dr. O’Neill. The man is a rock star!

I’m the 2020 Junior World Champion Barefoot Waterskier and on the UMD Alpine Ski Team. I tore my ACL alpine skiing in January 2022 and had ACL surgery in March 2022. My dad knew of Dr. Saterbak from her impressive alpine skiing days and from friends that have gone to her for skiing injuries. So, when I tore my ACL alpine skiing, we immediately went to Dr. Saterbak because I trusted her to help me get back to alpine skiing and barefoot waterskiing. Dr. Saterbak performed my surgery and did an amazing job! I did physical therapy through TCO and Training HAUS to get my motion and strength back. Four months post-surgery I was cleared to barefoot waterski, thanks to Dr. Saterbak. Throughout July and August 2022, I continued to barefoot waterski and kept gaining my strength and confidence back in my knee. Now going into winter, Dr. Saterbak is working with me to get back on the snow in December so I can return to alpine skiing for my college team. I couldn’t be happier with my recovery so far and I’m excited to get back to skiing this winter. Big thanks to Dr. Saterbak at TCO and Dan Tabalba at Training HAUS.

Dr. Ridley completed a pectoralis tendon repair for me in June 2022. I turned to him for a second opinion on my injury and couldn’t be more thankful! He accurately diagnosed my injury and implemented a course of action to get me back enjoying activities, using my pec and shoulder as I could before. He was thorough in discussing my options; keeping my best interest in mind. I appreciate his knowledge, professionalism and communication. Dr. Ridley and his team made my entire surgery experience smooth and have guided me through the process toward a successful recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Ridley. Many thanks to him and his team at TCO!

At my first appointment, Dr. Lewis could immediately tell how much pain I was experiencing. He had a couple MRI’s from my primary physician and ordered a CT scan. A surgery date was set up, but after Dr. Lewis reviewed the CT scan, he called me with the info of the healing needed to happen in the pelvic bone area before he could do surgery. Surgery was canceled and he gave me suggestions of what needed to happen before surgery. He set up another appointment to see me in a few weeks. After the next appointment when the pelvic bone changes had not been resolved, Dr. Lewis contacted 4 orthopedic surgeons from around the country to discuss my situation. He then scheduled the surgery, which he had spent 4 weeks prior planning. Surgery included a bone graft and 3 screws in addition to the hip shell ball and shaft. I am 7 weeks out of surgery, walking without any aid, am pain free and planning my active life ahead!

I was seen by Dr. Hofkens on an emergency basis due to swelling and inflammation of my right knee. He immediately sent me to the ER at a hospital for further testing and followed-up with the Orthopedic Surgeon on call. His interest, knowledge and concern for my care was instantly apparent. Dr. Hofkens’ “bedside manner” is outstanding! He explained everything in detail, so it was easily understood and during the ultrasound and aspiration procedures, he continually asked if I was in any pain or discomfort. He also followed through to make sure I had been contacted by the on-call staff. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need!

Dr. Hofkens saw me on an emergency basis in early June 2022. I am so grateful for his care and concern to my needs. I had no idea how serious my situation was until after the emergency surgery. I’m now two months into my recovery and am totally mobile again, due to his diligence and knowledge. If needed in the future, I won’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Hofkens or TCO to others. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have had hip issues all my life. I was born with both hip sockets dislocated and wore a special cast from the waist down, then went on to a special device that I wore at night to keep my legs straight. Anyway, I finally saw that a hip replacement might be in order since I was bone on bone. Leg and thigh pain with groin pain were a real drag. But I am 4 days out of hip replacement and although I’m still in pain, I am up walking every hour and it’s already SO different than what I had been dealing with. Dr. Vorlicky did an ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL job. Hopes to more recovery and painless days ahead!

Dr. O’Neill and his staff are top notch. From the initial consultation, to the post-surgical follow up and office visits, I couldn’t be happier. My situation was unique in that it required additional pre-surgical bone scans and input from my Cardiologist and Anti-Coagulant team. Every voice was heard, including my own, and a plan was made and executed. Thanks again to Isabel, Dr. O’Neill’s physician assistant, and the rest of his team. You’re the best!
