I would like to thank Russ Linville at Training HAUS. He helped get me where I need to be to be ready for this season!

I could not be more pleased with the level of care I received at Twin Cities Orthopedics and from Dr. Norberg. I went from painful, sleepless nights and days when my left arm/shoulder felt almost useless, to a totally restored shoulder and pain free existence. Dr. Norberg explained, in layman’s terms, what the problem was and the options for how to rectify that problem. Following surgery, recovery time and physical therapy, I began to regain strength in my shoulder. This did not come without a regimen of exercises, which Dr. Norberg explained were critical to the recovery process. By following his advice, I am a the point where I am glad to recommend TCO and Dr. Norberg without hesitation.

At 51 years old, having to have total shoulder replacement surgery is a bit shocking and humbling. The surgery, care and professionalism I received however, has been very positive and successful. I feel fortunate and look forward to the prospective of using my shoulder again for normal activities like reaching above shoulder height, lifting with normal strength and swimming again. For so long, I tolerated the pain and worked around my immobility. I’m young and should not be under such restrictions so it is actually exciting that I won’t have to suffer and live like that anymore. I’m very happy I had this surgery done with Dr. Kelly!

I had knee pain which limited my quality of life so I chose to have knee replacement surgery. Even though it has only been 5 weeks, I have good range of motion and I am going up and down stairs. My surgical and physical therapy experience has been excellent. Dr. Kelly and Lindsay were wonderful as well as the entire staff. I am sure this is going to greatly improve my quality of life.

I met Dr. Szalapski a few years ago during a routine treatment for hip pain. His approach from diagnosis to treatment really impressed me, and the results were excellent. In March 2021, after a great week of skiing out west, my knee began to hurt and I made an appointment with Dr. Szalapski for a checkup. X-rays verified that a knee replacement was required and the procedure was scheduled for mid-summer.

Prior to the surgery, he gave me a number of exercises to strengthen key muscle groups which turned out to be extremely beneficial in later recovery. The surgery was completed and ten days later I was mowing my lawn. I also just completed a 20-mile bike ride after 8 weeks! Dr. Szalapski has great bed-side manner as well, making visits enjoyable. And his team, Tracy and Jessica, are very supportive and responsive. It was a great experience and great outcome.

In July of 2020, Dr. Gulli performed a knee replacement on my right knee. The next month, Dr. Gulli did knee replacement on my left knee. I cannot thank Dr. Gulli enough for taking my pain away. I am now able to walk without any pain. Dr. Gulli and his team are wonderful.

Dr. Norberg and team were great to work with! Dr. Norberg was patient, thorough and gave realistic expectations. I hope I don’t need his skills again, but if I do I know where I’ll go!

I had great results from my total knee replacement. I couldn’t even walk one block before surgery and now I can walk a mile without difficulty and I am only six weeks post-surgery. Dr. Meyer‘s team has treated me so well. I have recommended him to many friends and family. Dr. Meyer changed my life.

Michelle thought her horse jumping days were over after a scary crash and serious injury. But thanks to TCO, she’s back in the saddle again:

“In 2017, my horse, Skip the Champagne, and I crashed during the jump-off at a competition in Iowa. I stayed securely in the saddle as Skip fell to the ground. We both landed on my left shoulder. Skip rolled over me twice before safely getting back on his feet. Thank God, Skip was fine.

X-rays revealed that I fractured my left shoulder. The following day, I met with Dr. Jason Dieterle at TCO Stillwater. Dr. Dieterle told me that I had a serious break and asked about my future goals. I told him I wanted to return to riding and jumping my horses competitively. However, my fracture was so complex that he hesitated to give me any assurances about jumping competitively again. Based on my fracture and what was left for him to work with, Dr. Dieterle told me a reverse total shoulder replacement was my best option, and the surgery was a success.

Afterward, Dr. Dieterle recommended 6 months of strenuous physical therapy, and said he would decide whether I could get back on my horse when it was complete. Thankfully, Dr. Dieterle saw the great progress I made and cautiously gave me permission to ride at a walk only and warned me not to fall off again. I quickly reminded him that I didn’t fall off my horse, Skip fell, and I went down with him. He said that was just a technicality haha.

One year after the accident, I returned to the same jumping competition, competing on all three of my horses, including Skip.

At our annual visits, Dr. Dieterle continues to be impressed with the return of my range of motion. He shakes his head and tells me to keep doing whatever it is I’m doing.

In December, I will be turning 67, and am so thankful to be healthy and back on my horses. I will forever be grateful that God placed Dr. Dieterle in my path.”

I would recommend Twin Cities Orthopedics to anyone in need of orthopedic surgery. I especially would recommend Dr. Hunt. I couldn’t be happier to have him as my surgeon. He was genuinely concerned about my well-being. I can’t thank him enough
