Dr. Greg Lervick is a phenomenon. He repaired my right shoulder, which was constantly dislocating, in 2011. Rebuilt labrum and moved rotator cuff into position and it’s been absolutely perfect. Recently he repaired my left shoulder and, while I’m still in rehab, I am confident the results will be equally great. He’s the only surgeon I’d trust my shoulders to. Hopefully, I won’t need to find out how he is at elbows or anything else, but my trust would be 100% if I did!

On October 8, 2013, Dr. Norberg performed surgery on my right rotator cuff. I had fallen twice on the same shoulder and needed a repair. While at the site he also fixed my released bicep. He did an amazing job! I golf and that is what I wanted to be able to do after I healed and completed therapy. Today I really don’t notice that I had those repairs. I golf and do everything that I want to do. Thank you so much Dr. Norberg! You are my hero! Ten days ago you did my husband Jim’s right rotator cuff and he is healing very nicely with very little pain. To date, he has taken one pain pill. Thanks! He is well on the way to recovery!

In 2016, I had full right shoulder replacement done by Dr. Schneider with full range of motion success. With that in mind, I was excited to have the same experience again in 2018 performed by Dr. Schneider and supported by his amazing staff. He is a no-frills, let’s get it done, physician who explains procedures in lay terms and appears to be proud of his successes and rightfully so. He is a knowledgeable physician and credit to his profession.
His assistant nurse, Sue Rustin, is invaluable when it comes to prompt return phone calls and immediate answers. Her overall compassion and care for Dr. Schneider’s patients is to be commended. A real asset to Dr. Schneider and the TCO organization.

If you have the unfortunate diagnosis of “Frozen Shoulder”, schedule a hydroplasty procedure with Dr. Allan Hunt. I was diagnosed in about 10 minutes and had an appointment for the hydroplasty 2 weeks later. After some initially pretty painful physical therapy sessions, I am completely cured! I suffered for 3 months with no shoulder mobility, sleep disturbance because of the aching joint and shooting pains when I moved too abruptly. The second day after my procedure, I was back in yoga class! I couldn’t be happier with the results. It’s absolutely amazing. I’ve had friends that are messing around with cortisone shots and therapy and getting nowhere. Don’t wait any longer in miserable pain – get the procedure done! You will be so happy you did.

Better late than never? We’ll see. About 4 years ago you guys fixed me. My shoulder joint was trashed with arthritis. I couldn’t sleep or raise my arm above my shoulder. The procedure, recovery and final outcome went so smoothly, I can hardly believe it. Thank you, Dr. Hartman and PA Benjamin Miller for the hard work you must do every day. You don’t get results like mine without focused effort. You are the real deal.

Dr. Szalapski has replaced both of my knees and one tendon repair for my shoulder. He has also replaced both hips and a knee for my wife. Her other knee is set for replacement next month! The results of each of these surgeries have been quite rewarding, with NO complications. I would highly recommend considering Dr. Szalapski for any surgeries that involve a joint repair or replacement. A no nonsense Dr. that will give you the facts without the pressure to proceed.

At 31 years of age, I tore my biceps at the beginning of my 13th season playing rugby. I had surprisingly never suffered a major injury before. I’ll never quit playing sports, and I knew I needed to find an experienced surgeon to sew me back together. Dr. Kelly was able to operate within 72 hours of my injury. I literally cannot recommend him enough. He and PA-C Lindsey Anderson are simply the best. They were professional, efficient, and caring.
I followed his treatment plan, and was back to lifting weights within a few months. Now, less than a year post-op, I am returning to national-level sport competition. My arm is stronger than ever, and his experience and skill are the reason.
If you suffer any kind of sporting injury to your upper extremities, Dr. Edward Kelly is the surgeon to see. Period.

Dr. Hess is an extraordinary surgeon! He performed both my surgeries and they were 100% successful. His superb skills were evident in this surgery as I am now close to complete range of motion. He made special efforts to increase the intensity of my therapy when I reached a plateau where my shoulders were becoming stiffer. He continued to follow my progress through therapy until it was complete. I have to compliment Dr. Hess on his professionalism and complete attention to my needs and progress at every office visit. He always made my visits seem to be his first priority with his complete attention during the exams. It has been less than a year since my last surgery and I hope to reach complete range of motion in the next few months. I am so happy I found Dr. Hess as I accredit him to a superb surgery and recovery. I would strongly recommend Dr. Hess to anyone who is in need of his surgical skills and aftercare.

Dr. Kelly did an amazing job of repairing torn biceps and rotator cuff tendons. His diagnosis was quick and accurate, and all went smoothly through pre-op, surgery, recovery, and PT. Dr. Kelly’s team of Kaici, Lindsey, and Kayla provided excellent support and advice throughout. The Fairview Ridges surgery experience was the best hospital experience I have had in 65 years — thank you to all the caring nurses who even sent me a card! Finally, Annie at TCO Physical Therapy worked with me pre- and post-surgery to get me healed and stronger than I have been in years. I would recommend Dr. Kelly and TCO to anyone needing orthopedic work. I hope I never need it again, but it’s comforting to know TCO, Dr. Kelly, and his entire team are there if I do. Thanks for making life better!

I am a retired physician and have been having gradually worsening left shoulder pain and restrictions for over 15 years. I had 38 years in the military and noted I could not fully bring my left palm back at the parade rest position. This gradually worsened and pain started. I saw Dr. Hamilton at age 65 and she was fantastic. She had the personality of a good family doc, something that is difficult to teach in young doctors (I taught in a family practice residency for 18 years) and something that is rare in sub specialists. She was magnificent. I recently had my shoulder replaced and could not feel better. I was off of pain meds on the 3rd day post-op and my motion is nearly back to normal now at 3 months post. Pain is completely gone. I could not be more happy with Dr. Hamilton’s clinical skills and her personal skills. I felt she truly cared about my health even after I left her exam room.
