They did a great job on my knee. It’s been 6 weeks and I feel great. I would have Dr. Arntson do the surgery again.

For 5 years, I have known I needed both of my hips replaced. I put off the surgery and dealt with the pain until it started to affect my back. I knew I had to do something and finally, I had an in-depth conversation about the surgery with Dr. Lewis. I had high anxiety, not about the surgery or recovery, but due to waiting and thinking about the process. Dr. Lewis reassured me about the process. I finally agreed to have my right hip surgery done at the Minnesota Valley Surgery Center. As soon as I checked in, I was put at ease. The first nurse I talked to (without being prompted) acknowledged my anxiety and said it would be addressed. A short time later, I met with the Anesthesiologist. He too, without being prompted, said he knew of my anxiety and would take care of me. I was given some pills and was very comfortable leading up to my arrival at the operating room. I don’t remember a lot about the surgery itself but the rest of my stay at the Surgery Center was very comfortable.
They were a great and caring nursing staff. The entire visit, from the home nurse to the physical therapist, went smoothly. My follow up visit with Libby Witchger and Dr. Lewis went well and truly, the entire process went so well. I am considering have my other hip done as soon as I can. My biggest concern was the pre-surgery anxiety but because of the caring and concerned staff, it was barely noticeable.

Dr. Bjerke is an understanding, non-ageist physician. I received great news and care from him!

Dr. Maura Hartigan listened to what issues I was having and addressed them immediately. I felt very confident in her diagnoses and the treatment was done in a timely manner. I would highly suggest her for any back issues you may have.

I had chronic elbow bursitis and put off surgery for four years. In March 2021, I finally had enough of the pain and went to see Dr. Hartigan and his team, Aaron Hulsebus PA-C and Marie McCarthy (Care Coordinator). I could not be happier! The surgery went far better than I expected and the recovery was fantastic. Marie kept everything on track and made the process so easy. Dr. Hartigan and Aaron are incredibly caring, friendly, and they truly care about a relationship with their patients. It was the BEST procedural and emotional experience I ever had with a physician by far.

I have seen Dr. Andrew Arthur twice for my injuries. He explained my injuries and what I can do to help heal them. I was given a wrist brace after my first injury for more protection. With my second injury, I cracked my clavicle by missing a step and falling backwards on the stairs. My clavicle never seemed to heal so went to him after a CT scan. He said he couldn’t operate on this area and to take it as easy as possible. He mentioned it was very possible to heal if I protected it while doing my regular daily routines.
I must say, it seems to feel better and I know he was right. I feel very confident in his work. If, by any chance, I happen to have another fall again (which I won’t), I have a very knowledgeable doctor who will treat me as he sees fit. I’m sure you will be very happy with him, as well, if you need a Orthopedic Doctor in your future.

Dr. Ryan was incredible! She listened to my concerns and was able to diagnose issues that no one else could diagnose. She was very thorough and thoughtful in discussing options.

After 3+ years of hip pain (which progressively got worse), I was referred to Dr. Owen O’Neill by a friend who had undergone a hip replacement by him many years ago. I was immediately impressed, not only by Dr. O’Neill’s extensive experience with this surgery, but also by his ability to communicate the procedure in layman’s terms and put me at ease with the overall process. This was a process and procedure I was very uncomfortable with initially. I’m now 2+ months post-surgery and, for the first time in years, am no longer spending each day suffering while engaging in simple ordinary day-to-day tasks. I look forward to getting back to all the outdoor activities I enjoy and thank Dr. O’Neill for getting me back on track to do so!

I just wanted to send a thank you to Twin Cities Orthopedics for the excellent care I have received. From my first contact with TCO to Dr. Fischer‘s surgery, I have felt well taken care of on my road to recovery. The week of my fall is a blear, so I am grateful to you all for your help. Dr. Fischer’s surgery was excellent and I am confident that I will be functioning at a normal level soon.

KS95’s Ryan is one of the most well-known radio personalities in Minnesota, but for 7 years, he hid a painful secret from listeners.
Ryan’s hips had gotten so bad, he could no longer walk. At his breaking point, Ryan turned to TCO, a decision that would change his life.
