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.

Dr. Asp knew I had seen two other providers and waited over a year to get a total hip replacement. He said, “I can do that in 10 days to 2 weeks.” I was into one of the hospitals he works as two weeks later. It was so successful, I only used a walker while in the hospital and a couple days at home. I was on the floor with my kids, cleaning the cat box, etc. within 3 weeks. I’m SO VERY THANKFUL I picked him out of the blue and he was so willing and on top of everything. He did a tremendous job!

I can not say enough about what a great experience I had with Dr. Moen and his receptionist Steph! I was visiting family from out of state when I tore my meniscus. Dr. Moen quickly fit me into his schedule when he heard. He determined that I would need surgery and had me scheduled for surgery 2 days later. His receptionist Steph called me, I’m sure after hours, to set things up that same day! She was so helpful answering all my questions and quickly emailing and/or calling me back. I unfortunately was not able to have surgery because of Covid. Still…Steph was AMAZING at helping me get info to my ortho in Oregon and continuing to help me even though she knew they wouldn’t be doing my surgery. This was above and beyond what I expected and it really brings me to tears realizing how great I was treated. If I’m ever in the area again when an emergency knee problem hits, I know who I’ll call. Thanks Steph!!

Dr. Chris Meyer is a very pro surgeon. He doesn’t waste words but knows his business well. I would recommend his services and also his assistant Sommer Vaughn, PA-C. Choose this group for your surgery and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It took me less than a year to completely recover from my knee replacement. I’m not running marathons, but I can make it up stairs without pain now!!

Dr. Bakker was able to successfully remove my tumor hidden in my shoulder. I’ve had extreme pain on and off for two decades and we weren’t sure it could be successfully removed, but it was! From the beginning of the check-in process to the end of the discharge, everything was so smooth and nice. Lindsey was the nurse who inserted the hand IV and did the best job I’ve experienced. Usually my hand ends up being poked and prodded a few times and it turns out swollen and bruised, but Lindsey inserted the hand IV seamlessly with little to no discomfort. Thank you for all your hard work and for changing my life for the better forever!

I came to Dr. Szalapski with a lifetime of knee pain. I had my first scope at 13 years old and I’m 40 now. Because of my age I had been dismissed often for replacements. Dr. Szalapski took the time to actually listen to my issues and care about me, as a person, not just a statistic. Over the last three years, he has replaced both of my knees. I’ve never been so excited to play ball again, or ride bike with my kids. Thanks to Dr. Szalapski and his care team of Tracy Chisholm, PA & his medical office guru Jessica, this team makes it almost seem easy. They are wonderful to work with and truly care about you as an individual. They have changed my life for the better. They can help you too!!

During my first appointment with Dr. Kelly, I asked him to fix me or amputate my arm. The pain was negatively impacting my quality of life and my mood. Since the surgery, I have returned to doing what I love to do and have minimal to no pain on most days. I am getting ready to start back up with my personal trainer and looking forward to once again being the ‘old lady who can’!

Five years ago, when I first started having pain in my hip and leg I went to Twin Cities Orthopedics. I had been there before for hand surgery so I knew I’d receive good care. My diagnosis was spinal stenosis. The approach taken for my symptoms was a very conservative one. I had spinal injections, physical therapy and sometimes medication to help relieve the pain and discomfort. There was never any pressure to have surgery. It wasn’t until the winter of 2019 when I fell backwards on the ice that I knew I had come to the point where I wanted to go ahead with surgery. I made an appointment with Dr. Deal and we discussed my options. In helping to make my spine as sturdy as possible Dr. Deal suggested a L2-L5 fusion as the best option. I really appreciated Dr. Deal’s way of explaining the surgery and all the follow-ups we had. Dr. Deal is an excellent surgeon. His physician’s assistant, Nathan Marcus was also a wonderful part of the surgery team. I just had my 1 year check-up and everything is still in place. I’m glad I opted to select Twin Cities Orthopedics and Dr. Deal.
