I had two knee replacements with Dr. Michael Meisterling and his PA, Shaun O’Keefe. I had my left knee done about 4 months ago and my right knee 4 weeks ago. I had a wonderful experience with the surgery. The surgery center at Lakeview in Stillwater was great and the nurses and staff, as well as Dr. Meisterling, made me very comfortable. Even the food was great! I would definitely recommend Dr. Meisterling to anyone considering a knee replacement.

After struggling for several years with increasing knee pain due to arthritis-driven meniscus wear (exacerbated by my avid pursuit of adult league alpine ski racing), I decided to have my right knee joint replaced. Dr. Andrea Saterbak was repeatedly recommended to me by local ski team coaches and other racers, and when I learned that she did a fellowship at the Steadman clinic in Vail, that she was affiliated with the US Ski Team and that she was a ski racer herself, I knew she was the surgeon for me. Andrea listened carefully to my goals for the surgery and without sugar-coating the level of effort that would be involved in the recovery, provided the confidence I needed to move ahead. I selected the outpatient option at the High Pointe Surgery Center, and was home by 3 p.m. the day of surgery. As predicted, the recovery is a much slower, longer process, but the post-operative support and physical therapy included in Dr. Saterbak’s practice were instrumental in getting me back on the snow. At 6 months post-op, I was waterskiing and wake surfing. At 9 months post-op, I resumed ski racing (at about 80% speed). Make no mistake – full healing is taking a long time for me. It’s been 14 months since my surgery, and the new knee still is not pain-free, but the discomfort has gone down steadily since the surgery. I’m sure that by the time my second post-op ski season starts this fall, I’ll be back at full speed. Based on my experience surrounding the procedure and my return to the sports I enjoy, it’s easy for me to recommend Dr. Saterbak and her practice colleagues to others. Thank you, Andrea!

Dr. Randall Lewis is great person and terrific surgeon. He listens carefully, answers all your questions, and then delivers the exact surgical results he promises. We have 4 new knee replacements between my wife and myself over approximately 2 years. He restored our ability to walk again without any pain and in reality gave us back our quality of life, as well as a healthy body, positive mind-set, and the ability to participate in all activities we enjoy. He is compassionate, caring, confident in his abilities, and has a fun personality and sense of humor. We recommend him very highly. His PA Libby is also outstanding helping in surgery, recovery, with medication direction , and other post-surgical answers and direction. Her follow-up is flawless with a caring and fun personality and a finely-honed skill set. The two together are a winning combination at the top of their game. Calling them to help you would be one of the best calls you make this year.

Dr. Lewis and Libby Witchger replaced one of my knees in 2008 and the other in 2015. Dr. Lewis is extremely adept at what he does. He is accurate, skilled, caring, and compassionate. He is a patient’s partner in the process of identifying the problem and solving the problem. Both of my surgeries were very successful and I am pain free! Libby and Dr. Lewis are a great team. Libby always returns calls and stays with the patient through the entire recovery process. I highly recommend both of them!

I am writing to express my appreciation for the outstanding care I received from Dr. Randall Lewis, Orthopedic Surgeon and my entire TCO care team including Libby Witchger, PA. For several years I suffered with serious knee issues from sports injuries and arthritis. Initially Dr. Lewis cared for me using non-surgical options.  Ultimately I decided the optimal option was to replace both knees and Dr. Lewis performed the surgeries. Throughout my care experience both Dr. Lewis and Libby impressed me with the personal and genuine care I received. I always received all the information I needed to make informed and clinically sound care decisions based on all options. My surgeries went so well I am now back to walking the golf course, road biking and hiking the national parks. I simply could not recommend a physician and care team more highly.

As an employee of Twin cities Orthopedics I brought my 8 year old daughter to be seen on 05/25/16 for left knee pain & swelling at the Coon Rapids location. I am extremely pleased with the care that she received from Dr. Kruse and all the assisting staff members. You could not get any better service and care before, during, and after than what you get from Dr. Kruse and his staff. He had to drain some fluid out of her left knee and like any 8 year old she was scared of the needle. She kept pulling her left knee away from him so that he could not do the procedure. Finally after 2 attempts the 3rd time was the charm and Dr. Kruse and his team talked her through it and he was able to get the fluid that he needed for testing. As a parent I had questions that he answered & explained everything in detail to me. Dr. Kruse was kind, caring and a very genuine doctor. When we left her appointment yesterday my daughter turned to me and said, “Mom I really liked him and it didn’t even hurt when he put the needle in my knee.” I would recommend Dr. Kruse to anyone.

Last week we were hiking in Iceland near glaciers and waterfalls. Glymur waterfall is the second tallest in the country and has a very challenging hike up along it to the top. Made it most of the way before losing the trail but the effort was worth it as long as I didn’t look down until reaching a flat area. Lucky for me there were ropes at the more difficult spots.

And lucky for me that I have been doing yoga leg stretches for the last five months. I can really feel the difference and strength gained. I can even kneel for short periods. And the IT band pain has gone away so biking is enjoyable again!

My 11 year-old daughter was recently seen by Dr. Wulf after a soccer injury to her knee. We went to Dr. Wulf because my nephew had seen him several years ago for knee surgery and I had Dr. Wulf perform microfracture surgery on my knee as well.

Dr. Wulf quickly diagnosed her with a contusion on her knee and a mild ACL sprain. He was exceptionally understanding of her athletic nature and desire to safely get back to playing as soon as possible. He was wonderful to work with and connected well with my young daughter.

If you are unlucky enough to have to have a family knee doctor, Dr. Wulf is a great choice.

Thank you Dr. Wulf!

Rebecca P.

After a hockey injury left her with chronic knee pain, Rebecca sought treatment with Dr. Nicholas Holmes of Twin Cities Orthopedics. She underwent a PRP (plasma-rich platelet) injection and was able to recover from her pain completely. As Rebecca puts it, “Twin Cities Orthopedics took my pain away.”

Cannot say a bad thing. I have had Dr. Meyer for several things and I will only have him. He is so kind and friendly. The whole staff is super great. The facility is unbelievable. Did not want to leave. Beautiful, cozy and so huge of a room.
