Dr. Carlson did a fantastic job on my hip replacement. Dr. Carlson put an end to my severe pain and allowed me to walk again after six months in a wheelchair! I most highly recommend TCO. Thanks a million! Kudos!

I’m 61 years old and I hesitated getting the much needed surgery because my other doctor retired. Words can’t begin to describe how great I feel after Dr. Bircher took care of me. The surgery was a huge success! At 8 weeks I graduated PT, and I’m bending and straightening my knee in ways I haven’t for a decade. I’m going straight up and down steps, not sideways, and I can garden again! Dr. Bircher has a great sense of humor and very caring. He told me I wouldn’t like him the first week after surgery, but it was only on day three where I felt that. I’m not going to lie, that day wasn’t fun. I have recommended him to friends. My right knee will be in his hands in the future. I highly recommend him!

I placed my trust in Dr. O’Neill and his staff after carefully researching orthopedic surgeons since I needed a lot of “structural work.” I wanted to be certain I would have the same results with top notch precision. Every replaced joint is working well, in alignment, and I am back to enjoying life with an active supported body. His staff is caring, efficient and prompt in responding to questions and concerns I’ve had over the course of five years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Joseph Bert since 2016. From day one, I felt a caring relationship with him. It was as if Dr. Bert was my son’s best friend and he promised my son he would take good care of me. He makes me feel special! He has a wonderful gift of making the patient feel comfortable and deserving of his attention. Dr. Bert is an excellent listener and makes you feel that your health does matter to him. You’re not just another body.

Dr. Bert has always been considering a better or more economical treatment for my arthritis. I have known Dr. Bert’s Care Coordinator, Jesse G. for as long as I have known Dr. Bert. My experience with Jesse has been equally rewarding in the way she makes me feel comfortable and significant. She is dedicated to her profession and continues furthering her career through higher education. I admire her for this. Jesse, like Dr. Bert makes me feel special. Together they are an awesome team. It’s a good day for me when I know I’m going to see Dr. Bert and Jesse. They make me feel good and that’s so welcomed in today’s world.

I had a total shoulder replacement in October 2023. Dr. Norberg had previously seen me for a large lipoma that was under my left deltoid muscle, and he did a super job. This time I had my left shoulder replaced and this gave me full use of my left arm with an excellent outcome. I just had my six month checkup and I can say that his expertise and thorough care has given me pain free use of my arm again. I must say that, besides being an excellent surgeon, Dr. Norberg is probably the easiest guy to speak to about any orthopedic issues one may have. I have and will recommend him to anyone that is considering orthopedic surgery.

Dr. Fischer and his team were great!  I was anxious going in, but they were so relaxed and put on country music for me to listen to so my anxiety quickly went down.  The way they talked with me throughout the whole procedure made me feel calm and in good hands.  I went grocery shopping with my husband after the procedure and slept so well that night.  The fact that I didn’t need strong pain medications, just a few Advil is amazing!  I just talked with another stylist here that has a claim with her shoulder and wrist and was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  She told me her provider said she needs an EMG and would be off work for 1 month just after having her carpal tunnel surgery.  She couldn’t believe I didn’t have an EMG and that I was back to work in 4 days!  In our industry, taking 1 month off is scary as we can lose clients.  They will go somewhere else for a haircut or nail appointment.  But a week off – there is no risk of that.  I told her she needs to see Dr. Fischer.

It’s been three months since my anterior hip replacement surgery, and I couldn’t be happier with Dr. O’Neill, his team, the EXCEL program, and my new hip. Every stage of my experience with Dr. O’Neill and his team was positive.

It started with my first appointment when he explained my condition, options, and an overview of how he performs hip replacements. My surgery was scheduled and during the three months wait, I received guidance from his staff on how to prepare through a mailed packet of program information and an online Zoom meeting. This preparation was very educational and provided me with added confidence in the EXCEL program as well as Dr. O’Neill and his team.

On surgery day, the friendly staff ran everything very efficiently. The surgery proceeded without any problems, and I had no complications. As part of the EXCEL program, I stayed overnight at their Edina Care Suites where I was cared for by wonderful nurses and a physical therapist who aided with my initial recovery. This overnight stay helped me feel more stable so I could return home confident with my balance and ability to walk. My care nurses were attentive and thorough, really just plain outstanding.

During my post-surgery recovery period, I gained stability, flexibility, and strength each day. I followed my post-surgery medication and exercise program at home with the prescribed daily routine. I needed to use a cane for only three days and within weeks I was taking neighborhood walks (about a mile or so) with a full stride. Now my hip doesn’t buckle, I no longer walk with a hitch in my step, and I have returned to my regular workout routine.

In summary, I’m very grateful for the EXCEL program, the surgery team, the staff, but especially the knowledge and skill of Dr. O’Neill.

I had an incredible experience with Dr. TJ Ridley. From the first time we met to look at options for my left hip, Dr. Ridley was professional, insightful, patient and knowledgeable. He has a wonderful team at TCO and my recovery and PT with the EXCEL Program was incredible. I highly recommend Dr. Ridley for anything orthopedic related. Dr. Ridley has a way about him that gave me great confidence and comfort.

Dr. Dieterle replaced my left shoulder and the caliber of his workmanship and skill level is incomprehensible! Within 3 days post-surgery I was using my left arm for pretty much everything that I needed to. My pain level was next to nothing, and within 3 weeks I was able to do anything that I wanted to. By the 7th week, I could say it’s as if I never had it replaced. It is performing as well as my shoulder did when I was young. This is attributed to his skill level. In my opinion, Dr. Dieterle is a marvelous surgeon.

I suffered from severe knee pain, which significantly impacted my quality of life. Dr. Bircher performed total knee replacement surgery, which allowed me to regain my ability to climb stairs, exercise, and do my usual chores. Before the surgery, I researched Dr. Bircher and discovered that he had received his training at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, where he became their chief resident. Then, following his residency, he took an orthopedic fellowship with the Cleveland Clinic. With such impressive credentials, I felt confident entrusting him to perform my knee replacement surgery. I was so impressed by his compassionate, warm manner. He made me feel well cared for. At just over three months post-surgery, I look forward to gardening again. Thank you, Dr. Bircher.
