Dr. Arthur performed my knee replacement surgery on June 9, 2022. This past month, my wife and I went on a hiking trip to Sedona AZ. Six months to the day after my surgery, I spent three days hiking in the desert and mountains of Arizona. I just wanted to say thank you to the whole team there at TCO and the EXCEL program. Last year I would not have been able to take that trip.

I went to Dr. Hunt after being referred to him by a friend. My shoulder had deteriorated from osteoarthritis, due to wear and tear brought on by an active lifestyle. I was approaching this procedure with trepidation due to the long recovery time associated with shoulder replacement. I am now 10 weeks past my surgery date and my shoulder is doing great. I am way ahead of where I thought I would be at this time. My 2 month post-op with Dr. Hunt included an X-ray image of my new shoulder joint and everything looked great with textbook alignment and positioning. I credit Dr. Hunt’s skill and experience with this really good outcome. Regular physical therapy is also key. My other shoulder is next on the list for replacement and I am sure I will be going back to Dr. Hunt.

Dr. O’Neill and his entire staff are beyond amazing to work with. Four years prior to seeing Dr. O’Neill, I had hip reconstruction for a labrum tear and reshaping of the ball and socket. I was hoping that surgery would be the fix. Eventually I developed severe arthritis and needed a full new hip. My husband had already had a hip and a knee surgery with Dr. O’Neill, so I knew he was my choice for this surgery.

He knew I had a trip planned in November which would require hiking and he promised me I would be ready. I had surgery on August 8, 2022 and was walking in post-op and at the recovery center. I was off a walker and walking with a cane in my neighborhood within 5 days post-op. The only pain I would tell you to be prepared for is the thigh pain. One would assume pain in the surgery area but this was not the case. I had quite a bit of swelling in the hip/thigh for almost 8 weeks. Overall, I felt better and better every day for the first 5 weeks. Note – You MUST WALK a lot and push through the pain! I also would say that until my swelling was gone, my leg felt a little bit longer. Once the swelling was gone it felt perfect!

I unfortunately had a slight set back around week 6, and I ended up getting bursitis in my hip/leg which I found out at my 8-week appt. I did PT for 4 weeks, and then at week 15 I was able to climb Machu Picchu with ZERO PAIN! We were on a trip to Peru where we walked or hiked every day and my average steps per day were between 13,500 – 17,500. We averaged 7/8 miles a day! So, when Dr. O’Neil tells you that you will be able to anything you want after 12 weeks, he is 100% correct! Just have to put your mind to your rehab/recovery and you can do it. I have referred him to several people and will continue to do so! Thank you again for everything!

I’d like to thank Dr. Knowlan and his care team for the outstanding service and care they provided before, during and after my procedure. I cannot say enough about TCO and their staff. They provided competent and professional care and communication every step of the way. Thanks again!

Dr. O’Neill performed my total knee replacement and 1.5 years later, I could not be happier. He performed a flawless surgery and as a result, I can walk and lightly run now. I am 100% pain free and walk endlessly almost every day. The TCO post-surgery and physical therapy was of the highest quality and I attribute my ability to walk again with these folks too. I had an extremely favorable experience with Dr. O’Neill and the TCO team. I highly recommend him to anyone experiencing knee or hip issues.

In the fall of 2021, Abby’s foot hurt while running during cross country meets. We saw several doctors, including orthopedic ones. She had an MRI also. No one could figure it out and another orthopedic doctor said there is nothing wrong. As a frustrated mom, I called Twin Cities Orthopedics. She had an appointment with Dr. Paul Langer. At her appointment he immediately diagnosed her with the collapsed arch. He prescribed inserts. Wearing the inserts and special exercises helped her recover. This last fall season, her cross country team made it to the Minnesota State Cross Country meet. We will be forever grateful to the care she received and will always recommend them to family and friends!

My “back” story started in February 2022. My pain started in my right hip and radiated down my right leg. As the weeks went by, the pain in my right hip and leg continued to increase. The pain increased to the point that it became very difficult to get out bed, stand from a sitting position, or walk any distance longer than a block. I attempted other treatment options, including Chiropractic treatments, to try and relieve the pain with no success. I turned to Twin Cities Orthopedics for help. I was diagnosed with instability at L 4-5, which shocked me since I had no back pain. I had a spinal injection, oral steroids, and physical therapy. These produced mild improvement but the pain returned. I met with Dr. Hoel and immediately felt confident in him. He had extensively reviewed my case and images and explained to me point by point what was going on with my back. We discussed my options and his recommendations. I felt it was a real patient-doctor relationship keeping my best interest in mind. I’m very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and with the care I received from Dr. Hoel and his staff. I would highly recommend him. He will take very good care of you!

In April and November of 2022, I had my long overdue knees replaced by Dr. Chris Meyer and his great staff at TCO. I am only 1 week into recovery with my second replacement and I am so grateful to have Dr. Meyer and TCO execute everything perfectly. I know the process ahead takes plenty of hard work and time, but I couldn’t ask for a better team than Dr. Meyer, Sommer, Tammy, and Greg and the crew at the TCO Performance Center for expert PT.
Many thanks!

I had back surgery on November 8, 2022 by Dr. Rick Davis. He performed an anterior interbody lumbar spinal fusion cage on my back because I have degenerative disc disease. So far I am doing well on my recovery. I think he did a wonderful job.

For a very long time, I suffered continuous pain in foot to the point where I couldn’t walk without complaint. Dr. Holthusen performed surgery and made my life better. I can walk again. Thank you Dr. Holthusen!
