This past spring, I developed some general hip pain. Within one week, I was able to schedule an appointment at a convenient time and location with Dr. Ridley. During my first appointment, Dr. Ridley took the time to get to know me, not only as a patient but as a person. He listened to my hip concerns and I felt understood and acknowledged. During that same appointment, they did an X-ray and Dr. Ridley carefully explained what the x-ray showed. He presented me with a few options, and we decided to follow up and move forward with an MRI to have a more concrete and concise diagnosis. Within one week, I was able to get my MRI and follow-up scheduled.
Similar to my first appointment, Dr. Ridley’s kindness and professionalism were clear and apparent. He explained in detail what the imaging displayed and that the MRI showed a labral tear in my left hip. He presented both surgical and non-surgical choices and explained the pros and cons of each decision in a very non-judgmental way. I did not feel rushed to make a decision and was given information and knowledge to make the best decision. Eventually, I did decide to go through with surgery.
Again, Dr. Ridley carefully and compassionately explained what surgery and recovery would look like. He was very accommodating and found a surgery date that worked for me. The day before my surgery, Dr. Ridley took time out of his day to call me and check in. I’ve had a few surgeries in the past, and he has been the first and only doctor to call me prior to surgery. That small gesture meant a lot to me and again, exemplifies his professional and caring demeanor. The day of surgery, he took time to answer any final questions from me and my parents. The surgery went as perfectly as one could hope and I’ve had minimal to zero pain during recovery and beyond.
I would immediately recommend Dr. Ridley to anyone who is working through hip, shoulder, or knee pain/issues. In the short amount of time that I have known Dr. Ridley, his deep care for his patients is abundantly clear. I am forever grateful for the amazing care I received from Dr. Ridley, his staff, and TCO.

My daughter fell down the stairs I took her to the emergency room and found out her left foot was broken! That’s no fun for a kid in the summer. Dr. Ridley was amazing! He is so professional and caring. My daughter was very scared and he was amazing with her. He made her feel very confident that he was going to make sure things were okay. He made her relax about everything and I will definitely go back to him! If anyone is looking for an Orthopedic surgeon, he is the man!! He is very thorough and put all our worries and concerns to the side. You are in good hands with this doctor for sure!

Dr. Davis performed an anterior cervical discectomy fusion on me in 2009. I was in agony prior to seeing Dr. Davis and I woke up pain-free after the surgery! He’s an amazing surgeon and I will be forever grateful to him.

After a successful operation, I’d like to thank Training HAUS and Braidy Solie, as they will be helping me during my recovery/rehab process in the States. I appreciate Dr. Larson and TCO for looking out after me. I can’t wait to rejoin my team, Menemenspor Soccer Club, once I’ve been given the go-ahead from my doc!

I am 5 weeks out from surgery and still recovering but TCO prepared me exceptionally well for surgery. My recovery has been intense but I was aware it would be work and I intend to continue to ensure my success. All staff at TCO, including Dr. Kelly, have been professional, knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend TCO. At 5 weeks out from surgery, I see improvements each day. I know 3 and 6 months out and a year from now, I will be satisfied. Be prepared to commit to your surgery and do the post-surgery work required to achieve success.

Dr. Holte took care of me when I could hardly walk. Thanks to his surgical skills and long-term follow up, I am pain-free today! He was a very caring doctor.

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.

I had two knee replacements done by Dr. Mair at TCO. My right knee was done 2.5 years ago and my left knee was done on February 1st of this year. Both experiences were great and Dr. Mair was a very caring, thorough and understanding surgeon. Both of my knees are doing fine and my quality of life has greatly improved. I am very happy I decided to have my knees repaired. I was very satisfied with the care from Dr. Mair and his PA-C, Cody. Both men were very patient and willing to answer any questions I had concerning the entire procedure. They are great guys!!!

I had both hips replaced at a different location by a different surgeon. My right hip was done in 2016 and the left in 2017. The left hip stared bothering me within 1 year and I tried to walk it off but the pain kept getting worse. I went to see the same surgeon and his exam took less than 5 minutes. It included a brief 10 pace walk in his exam room and a diagnosis by saying “you just have bursitis so keep on walking.” I asked my family physician and he referred me to Dr. Szalapski for another opinion.
Dr. Szalapski told me I did not have bursitis and ran me through a complete series of tests that showed the hip parts were deteriorating and it was putting high metal counts in my system. Both hips need to be revised with different parts. Due to COVID, I had to put surgery off for over 1 year but I had a revision on June 28, 2021. It was the easiest and least painful surgery of all 3 previous ones. In about 10 days, I was walking without and walker or cane. Dr. Szalapski did what he said and I give him the highest marks!

I had a bicep injury and Dr. TJ Ridley was the professional to repair it. He explained every detail to me before the surgery and everything was fine and smooth after the procedure. He is an excellent professional and so is his team. I would also like to say that the physical therapy was really important for the full recovery. All of the TCO staff are so kind and really made me feel comfortable. I will strongly recommend TCO. They are amazing!
