Dr. Gerlach replaced a joint in my right thumb approximately 7 years ago. I also had a left thumb replacement, performed by a different doctor. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I had minimal pain after two weeks with Dr. Gerlach and recovery was a breeze. With my left thumb surgery from a different doctor, I was still in pain after two months with a very difficult recovery. Dr. Gerlach is a highly skilled surgeon with great bed side manner.

I can’t believe I was hesitant! The fusion of the MP join on my right thumb as made all the difference in the world to me. The pain of recovery from surgery was nothing compared to the pain in my thumb for years prior to the procedure. Getting used to the fusion wasn’t nearly as difficult as I had feared. In fact, it was quite easy. If you are presented with joint fusion as an option, I strongly recommend Dr. Clare McCarthy. She and her team are compassionate professionals, who walk you through the entire process with your best interest put first. I can’t imagine a better team to trust! Simply put, they rock!

I loved my experience with Dr. Adam Bakker and team at TCO. I went into surgery having mixed feelings. With limited mobility due a wedding dance injury, I didn’t want that to define activities such as golf or skiing moving forward. The post-surgery recovery outcome was a little over 5 weeks and has been amazing!!! My mobility has increased two fold and my chicken wing arm has disappeared. I’m finally back to a “normal” life and this would not be the case without Dr. Bakker and his amazing skillset. The TCO team has been instrumental in providing great care pre and post-op. Laura B., in the Phys therapy department, has been helpful with range of motion exercises, flexibility, and minimization of scar tissue. It’s been a fantastic experience. Thank you TCO!

I had a great experience at TCO. My hand was cut pretty badly and Dr. Ridley and his team did a great job in repairing it. My hand is just like new. It feels and looks great. Thank you so much. I am very happy with the outcome.

I would highly recommend Dr. Bakker and his team if you are considering hand or wrist surgery. I had a very large lipoma on the inside of my left wrist. It had been there for 25 years. It required very intricate surgery to remove it. The surgery went extremely well and my post-op recovery was also very successful. Thank you Dr. Bakker and team!

I saw Dr. Gerlach in April for a trigger finger and carpal tunnel release. The procedure was incredibly easy and Dr. Gerlach and his team are awesome people. It was such a great experience and the relief is so amazing. I’m going back in November to address the carpal tunnel in my other hand.

Before I met Dr. Olmsted I had been to countless doctors over the course of 15 years. I had been called a “medical freak” by several of those doctors. I was dealing with wrist pain for over a decade that had reached the point where I couldn’t even take the cap off of a dry erase marker. As a teacher, I was starting to worry about my ability to do my job. On a whim, I made an appointment with Dr. Olmsted and his amazing staff. He made a diagnosis in such a quick amount of time that I actually sought out a 2nd opinion. The other doctor I visited was highly recommended, but when he asked what brought me in, I told him it was to get a second opinion. He asked which doctor I had already seen. When I told him, the other doctor simply said, “I’ll look if you want, but that man is great. Do whatever he says and make sure he’s the one that does it!”

He wasn’t wrong. Dr. Olmsted went on to do a partial wrist fusion that was caused by undiagnosed juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. I now have more function in that wrist than I ever had before and there’s no more pain! I have since gone back for a variety of things, including broken fingers and a thumb fusion. He is truly a gifted doctor and surgeon and I can’t speak highly enough of him and Matt Anderson, OTL!

Dr. Koch was very willing to answer my questions and discuss my concerns. She is a good communicator, providing clear and concise answers. I’d highly recommend her.

I would like to compliment the excellent hand surgery that was performed by Dr. Bakker. I had 4 separate complex surgical incisions and the outcomes of the surgeries were excellent. I have to say, I had no pain in my hand from the beginning to the end of rehabilitation. I am extremely pleased with the entre process from the support staff to the provider. Thank you all.

Dr. Adam Bakker changed my life. After severe wrist pain for years, and multiple different surgeons refusing to treat the rare tendon problem I’ve had since birth, Dr. Bakker took on the challenge and my right wrist hasn’t felt burning pain since before surgery. I’m 4 years post-op and I’m still doing great. I play softball regularly and lift weights 4x a week. I’m so happy to have my life back! Thank you Dr. Bakker, I’m forever grateful for all you’ve done for me.
