It had gotten to the point that the bunion and two hammer toes on my right foot made it very painful to walk, especially in closed shoes. Based on my family history of bad feet, I knew I had to do something because if they were left unchecked, it would only get worse. I decided to see Dr. McGarvey based on the number of bunioneictomies he had performed (more than 8,000) and patient testimonials. Dr. McGarvey is a very direct, no nonsense physician, with clear expectations of his patients’ post-operative recovery activities. I have faithfully followed his guidance and seven weeks after surgery, healing is progressing as expected.

Last October, I decided it was time to get my knee fixed. I met with Dr. Ciegler at the Osceola, WI hospital. From the first meeting, he and Shaun we’re impressive. The answers were great and the risks and options were carefully explained to me. I proceeded with my surgery on October 14th. Everything was amazing within a couple of days of surgery and I was far better off than before my replacement. Unfortunately, things went sideways due to issues that we’re no fault of anyone. It was an infection. I was then part of the 1% club that picks up an infection from somewhere. Dr. Ciegler and Shaun sat me down and told me what we needed to do right away to aggressively treat the infection. Although there were a few scary days for my wife and I, things got better fast. Dr. Ciegler and Shaun kept me informed of every detail, the problem, the treatment and the risks. His aggressive approach, while rather painful, resulted in me healing up fast. I cannot say enough about Dr. Ciegler and his team. They are great communicators, caring and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for orthopodic work. They are simply the best!

After four years of gradually decreasing range of motion and increasing hip pain, I found that Dr. Horazdovsky was very supportive once I decided to have surgery. He told me what I could anticipate and provided help and resources in my healing. In retrospect, I should have done it much earlier. I would heartily recommend him.

Dr. Szalapski replaced both of my hips. The first hip was 4 years ago and the other was in November 2019. Both times I could not have been more satisfied. My friends were amazed at how fast I was recuperating. I never used a walker and I only used a cane for one day. I recommend Dr. Szalapski whenever I can.

Thank you, Doctor!

I had my knee replacement surgery on October 7, 2019. My entire experience – starting with my consultation with Dr. Szalapski, through the preliminary “class”, surgery, and follow-up – has been very positive. I am very glad that I had the surgery when I did.

Dr. Szalapski’s team of nurses and other doctors are excellent, and they all work very well together. The pre-op and post-op staff at Fairview Hospital Southdale in Edina were amazing. They were helpful, friendly and professional. Thanks to the good care of everyone, I have recovered well and had no issues whatsoever.

Dr. Meisterling and his assistant Kayla, have been an extended part of my family for the past 10 years. I have degenerative joint disease which has led me to have both knees, one shoulder, two thumbs and, most recently, a hip replaced. Dr. Meisterling and Kayla have walked through them all with me. My recent hip replacement was particularly challenging. Different components of the hardware failed, resulting in two revisions within 3 months of having the initial hip replacement. Dr. Meisterling and Kayla were available, supportive and most importantly, my advocates as we had to schedule each of these procedures. I felt so cared for during the whole ordeal. I am so grateful for this team.

I had refused to seriously consider taking any action for my knee. Dr. Kruse was the first doctor that I felt cared about my care and my future. He gave me hope for the first time in years that I can have my life back!

Dr. Asp, his staff, and all nurses and PT at the EXCEL Program recovery suites were fantastic. I had a right hip replacement with the anterior approach. I was cautiously walking well, right out of the gate, from the surgery center and at the Excel recovery suite. I am an outdoors person and am three weeks out of surgery. I am walking well and already starting to do outdoorsy things I haven’t been able too for a long time.

This may be an early review with my surgery occurring only three weeks ago, so will add another review on my one year anniversary of having my right hip replaced.

I’ve had Dr. Anseth replace my left knee and I am happy with it. I am now scheduled to have my right one replaced. He did an awesome job with the left knee replacement and I expect that same level of care with my next replacement. I feel blessed to have one of the best surgeons the Midwest.

After 3 years of worsening hip pain, I finally decided to visit TCO. I saw Dr. Sanders and he was very helpful. He explained my condition to me and what I could expect for the future. It took me awhile to finally accept that I needed surgery and, after a COVID delay, my left hip was replaced in June 2020. Dr. Sanders did a great job, not only with the surgery, but helping me understand the process. I was walking hours after surgery and my pain was gone! I used a walker for about 8 days and then walked on my own. Within 3 weeks I was walking for 30 minutes every day and worked my way up to 1 hour (3 miles) by 2 months post op. I am so pleased with my recovery! I highly recommend Dr. Sanders and also encourage everyone to follow his directions and do the exercises!
