I’m so lucky Dr. Lewis was on duty when I fell ice skating and fractured my right femur. He is kind and caring and has a lot of expertise. My leg has three big pins, but feels normal with no more pain. I was a lucky person.

Total left knee replacement on July 23, 2020. Dr. Brian O’Neill did a fantastic surgery! I let his team know that I could not handle narcotics, without getting severely sick after surgery. They took that information and decided that they would do a spinal on me instead. I said YES! It will be three weeks this Thursday, and all I’ve used was Tylenol and ibuprofen, and now I’m down to Tylenol when needed. Dr. O’Neill is very professional, very kind, a great listener and made me feel calm. The staff he has is also great, answering any questions I had before and after surgery. My bandage was removed after one week, and the incision looked the best I’ve ever seen. They did a great job stitching me up and I’m already ahead of the game with therapy. There’s less and less pain each day, but it’s good pain as some therapy can be harsh but is well worth it. I can’t say enough about Dr. O’Neill and his God given talent!

This was my second surgery performed by Dr. Scott McGarvey. The first was bone-on-bone arthritis in my left foot. Now, two years later, he fixed my bunion and hammer toe on the same foot! I recommend Dr. McGarvey, he is knowledgeable, explains every detail of the surgery and is calming to nervous/anxious patients. I am back to walking miles with NO PAIN! Hats off to a job well done! Thank you so much!

In July of 2019, I was suffering from what was thought to be additional spine issues but I ended up needing both of my hips replaced. I was referred to Dr. Steven Meisterling by several Twin Cities Orthopedic employees; he practiced in the East Metro where I live and performs surgery at the Eagan Orthopedic Surgery Center. Dr. Meisterling started by giving me immediate injections in both my hips but those injections brought no relief so in October 2019 we decided I needed a new hip. The big question was which one would go first? We decided on the right hip and on October 8, 2019, Dr. Meisterling did a total right hip replacement at the Eagan Orthopedic Surgery Center and I was in the EXCEL Program. I was in and out in 24 hours and the recovery was great. Unfortunately, my left hip deteriorated rapidly so we scheduled for the left one to be replaced on January 23, 2020! My left hip replacement was a bit worse and was a harder recovery for me but Dr. Meisterling and his care team were the best and checked in, got me signed up for PT in the dead of winter and followed up during the Covid pandemic. Dr. Meisterling is kind, compassionate, and caring. Less than a year post hip replacements, I am walking, swimming, riding my bicycle (no, I haven’t tried my Harley yet!) and doing stairs with ease. I am forever grateful to Dr. Steven Meisterling and his team!

Broke my right wrist trying my granddaughters hoverboard, yes I have checked it off my bucket list. The hospital tried to set it, but it was an unstable brake and I needed surgery. I was able to have surgery done two days later. Now, it’s been five weeks total and I’m starting to make bone, pain is minimal and I have almost normal range of motion. The staff and Dr. Wetter have been awesome. I would recommend them to anyone!

At 55 I’ve had several orthopedic care issues over the years. This particular injury was the most debilitating that I have encountered in my life.
Dr. Norberg immediately got on it! I was in surgery five days after the injury. Four months later I feel 99% healed. Keep in mind that this type of surgery requires 6 to 9 months to heal. I feel it’s Dr. Norberg’s gift as a surgeon that got me back to my normal life in half the time. Greatest experience I’ve had in one of the worst times (COVID).

Great experience with Dr. Klassen and team. There was no doubt that a total shoulder replacement was in order. After surgery, I feared not being able to participate In life’s activities, but he told me if I stuck to my therapy I’d be back to playing golf in 3 months, and it was three months to the day! Feels great, now back to exercising, light weightlifting, gardening, home improvement with very little pain and great range of motion. Only problem is that I can no longer use an achy shoulder as an excuse for playing poor golf. Dr. Klassen provided a great surgical outcome along with great support and encouragement along the way. TCO is fortunate to have him.

I’m 6 weeks down the path after my neck fusion surgery and couldn’t be happier, healthier and pain free. This is a game changer! I’m shocked that after just 6 weeks I feel this good and better, and I just got full clearance for lifting and activities. Dr. Smith had a wonderful bedside manner and based on my experience is an extremely skilled surgeon. A huge shout out to his nurse Anne. I can’t emphasize enough how good she is and how much it shows! Within a week of seeing Dr. Smith I was in surgery, all due to Anne and her ability to get my insurance squared away, the facility locked in and my testing scheduled. This was amazing considering the COVID impacts. They’re the best duo I’ve encountered. Thank you both for your skills and diligence. I feel fantastic!!!

I am so grateful I found Dr. Hess. He sat down with me and really listened to my concerns and made me feel like a valuable patient. He just performed surgery on my shoulder and I look forward to healing and physical therapy to start my journey to feel pain free.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Edward Szalapski as a Doctor. My family doctor referred me to him when I needed my right hip replaced in 1998. He said he would not send me to anyone that he would not send his own family member to. Dr Szalapski fit that bill, he is a caring down to earth person. I remember telling him he had to do a good job because my grandkids wanted to play with their grandma. You know he cares about his patients when in November 1998 after having my right hip replaced, he came to see how I was doing late in the evening at the hospital.

Then in November 2009 I had my left knee replacement, left hip replacement October 2010, right hip socket replaced 2018 after 20 years. Then Dr. Szalapski did my carpel tunnel right hand in April, 2019 and the carpel tunnel left hand in May, 2019. I believe in his work so much I changed my health carrier as his office was not going to be in the network. This year I needed my right knee replaced and I am so glad I can still have Dr. Szalapski as my Orthopedic physician.
