In 2018, after an MRI showed a significant bulge in the disc at L5/S1, I received an injection which provided 100% relief. About 1 year later, after working under the kitchen sink on the garbage disposal, I woke up the next day and could barely move. Another MRI was taken and the disc bulge was now significantly larger, by my estimation at least 2x larger than it had been a year earlier. My family has a history of back problems and surgeries and I was doing all I could to prevent surgery, so we tried an injection again on both sides of the spine with zero result. In a short period of time, I was only able to move about in a wheel chair. Surgery was scheduled within a few days…and I have been pain free ever since. I could not be more pleased with the results. Dr. Deal and his team provided excellent care, answered all my questions and made me feel as if I was the only patient they had. I would recommend him to anyone having back issues. I suffered with debilitating back pain off and on for over 30 years and had always been able to stave off surgery with more conservative options. Dr. Deal helped me get over my fear of back surgery and was it ever a great decision. I’d trust him with my back anytime.

My 15-year-old daughter has seen Dr. Langer twice in the past few months for ingrown toenail removal. We appreciate how quickly she was able to be scheduled for both visits. Dr. Langer is a personable, calm and caring doctor. He thoroughly explains the situation and your options. He immediately put my daughter at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Langer to anyone having foot issues!

Dr. Klassen is a fantastic physician! He is extremely smart, caring, kind and highly skilled. As an added bonus, he also has a great sense of humor. In addition to my own shoulder care, we also entrusted our son’s medical care to Dr. Klassen, due to shoulder and elbow (football and baseball) related injuries. Dr. Klassen is absolutely the best doctor/surgeon that we know. Thank you Dr. Klassen and TCO!

I had CMC replacement and carpal tunnel surgery done on both hands. Dr. Bakker was so caring and did such an amazing job. I had great care from start to finish. Both hand surgeries were a great success. Dr. Bakker and his staff are very caring and very professional. I would recommend Dr. Bakker and his team to anyone and everyone! No surprise he’s voted best Dr. so many years in a row!! Absolutely the best doctor I have ever been to!!

I am an 83 year old man and on Friday, August 2nd 2019, I took a tumble and broke my left hip. My wife got me to Southdale Fairview Hospital at 5:30pm. After taking numerous X-ray’s, it was determined that I had a broken hip and would need surgery. I was checked into the hospital and taken to my room at about 8:30pm. With this being a summer weekend, I fully assumed that I would not see a surgeon until Monday, August 5th at the soonest.

The next morning, Saturday, August 3rd at 9am, two nurses came into my room telling me they need to take me down to the operating room, as I was scheduled for immediate surgery. I was totally surprised that the hospital was able to find an orthopedic surgeon for a Saturday morning surgery. My wife and my son were waiting for me at the operating room. Dr. Ryan Horazdovsky arrived right away and introduced himself to all three of us. He was very friendly and gave us the feeling that we had known him for a long time. He explained my hip was broken so badly that he had to totally replace it. I asked him how many total replacement he had done and he told me a large number, so we felt very comfortable that he was my surgeon. I went into the operating room feeling like I was really in good hands.

A few hours later I awoke with my wife and son with me. They were very impressed with Dr. Horazdovsky, who made them feel completely at ease and explained the operation went just as it should and that it was a complete success. I assumed I would awake to a lot of pain. I was given a very mild pain pill for only one or two days. After that I basically had no pain. I was up and walking on my new hip that evening and went home two days later.

Today I had my 5-month check up with Dr. Horazdovsky. He had x-ray’s taken which showed all is perfect. When my wife and I got home we said if I ever break my other hip or if she ever broke hers, we would want only Dr. Horazdovsky to be the surgeon again.

Life changing! I went to over 10 specialists, including other orthopedic specialists, to try and figure out why I had chronic pain during sleep and some activities. A decade after struggling with chronic pain in my neck/shoulder area, I sought out a doctor with great reviews online. Dr. Sager saw me three times and had me get a nerve test done. He gave me the diagnosis of TOS. A year later, after physical therapy didn’t help, I flew to Boston to go under the knife. Surgery was very successful so a year later I had my other side done.

I am so lucky to have been seen by Dr. Sager and then Dr. Donahue at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Life changing, thanks for everything!

For the past 10+ years, I had been searching for an answer to my ever worsening ankle pain which was a result of a motorcycle injury when I was 19, and I’m now 60. Dr. Tanner reviewed my history and completed his examination of my ankle. On that 1st visit he felt that he could ease 50-80% of my pain. I was on board and we scheduled the procedure that same visit. The surgery went well and my recovery was a breeze. I was off pain meds within 3 days and moved to Tylenol after that. I’m now 11 months post surgery and have absolutely NO regrets. This has given me a new lease on life, waterskiing virtually every day this past August, to hiking in Ireland in September. Now I’m back to planning hunting trips with my boys.

Dr. Bakker is a straight shooter — did a great job on my surgery. I appreciated his skill, knowledge and care. It has been a little over a week since the surgery and my range of motion has increased by 15% in each direction. Thanks Dr. Bakker and staff!

I am a two-time patient of Dr. O’Neill. The left knee was replaced 11 years ago and is working great! The right knee was done in October 2019 and is also working great! As my right knee became more painful, there was no question in my mind as to who I would trust with the surgery and care, even though this means a 4 hour round-trip commute, as I live in the Brainerd Lakes area now. Dr. O’Neill and his first class staff’s counseling had me well prepared (for a process that has changed quite a bit in 11 years) for what I realized would be a more manageable recovery. I knew that prep and dutiful follow-up therapy would have me back to a much more normal life, as the surgery itself would be done by the best guy in the business! As far as knee replacements, do not wait until pain and discomfort change your life (for me, I can’t wait for spring and kayak fishing, which wasn’t an easy in-and-out last year). Know to be ready, trust Dr. O’Neill and his staff, and be ready to rehab.

THANK YOU DR. O’NEILL AND STAFF!

I had a total hip replacement done on October 28th, 2019, performed by Dr. Owen O’Neill and his wonderful staff. Dr. O’Neill performed an anterior procedure. I was back to work in two weeks and I never had to use a walker or crutches except for my first walk four hours after surgery. I used a cane for two weeks and after that time I used the cane occasionally, especially when walking outdoors. In 2003, I had my other hip replaced by another surgeon which was done with the posterior approach. My recovery was long and very painful with that one. I had to use a walker for two months and crutches for another month after that. I realize that in the 16 years in between my hip surgeries, replacement procedures have improved, but I believe Dr. O’Neill’s method is far superior. I highly recommend TCO, Dr. O’Neill and the whole staff. It was a far better experience than my first replacement.
