I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Owen O’Neill and his orthopedic team through the entire process. I had my surgery eight weeks ago and am doing very well. The severe pain that I had before the surgery is gone and I am back doing my normal activities with very minimal difficulty. If and when my other knee needs relief, I will not hesitate to have Dr. O’Neill do the surgery. I have total confidence in him and would highly recommend him to others.

Dr. Knowlan did a great job with the reconstruction and cleanup of my torn meniscus. I debated a long time about having the surgery but I’m sure glad I did!!! Thank you Dr. Knowlan and TCO!

My son jammed his thumb playing hockey and we went to see Dr. Ridley at TCO. We were able to get in to see him in a timely manner. My son’s appointment was on time. Dr. Ridley was professional and very knowledgeable. He shared the results of the x-ray, examined my son’s thumb, discussed next steps, and answered all of our questions. He even asked about my son’s hockey season and other sports he played. I would highly recommend Dr. Ridley. I really appreciate that he’s not only a professional and knowledgeable physician, but a personable one as well. Dr. Ridley exceeded my expectations. Thank you!

From beginning to end, Dr. Arntson and his staff made me feel very comfortable about this surgery. At 6 weeks post-op, I am walking up and down stairs and about one mile outside. I would highly recommend Dr. Arntson and his staff. Physical Therapy was fantastic too!

I have only positive things to say about my experience. From the first appointment with Dr. Arntson, I felt like I made the best choice for my knee problems. The staff in the clinic were very kind and helpful. Dr. Arntson explained everything in detail to me and in such a way that my anxiety was taken away. The follow up visits were just as great and comforting as the pre-op visits. I truly recommend TCO for others having issues. I can’t thank Dr. Arntson and staff enough for making a positive change in my life. Thank you all!

While the inability to use my shoulders occurred slowly over time, the decision to have shoulder replacement in both my left and right side was game changing. The mental acceptance of my prognosis was the most difficult. Post-surgical pain was very manageable and 6 weeks without use was frustrating but manageable as well. In addition to my experience with expert surgeon Dr. Kelly, the therapist was a key to full recovery too, Lisa R. is the best. Dr. Kelly’s entire team made my year transformative, giving me back the ability to golf, scuba dive and deep sea fish by the end of the year.

Over the last 10-15 years I’ve accumulated multiple, minor knee injuries. Recently, I had another injury but this one felt a little different. It was more scary and more painful than ones I experienced in the past. I sought out Dr. Ridley at TCO for his insight. After a very thorough exam and x-ray series, we decided to manage the issue conservatively. Dr. Ridley recommended continuing with physical therapy; consisting of weight-bearing exercises, as well as range of motion mobility. My knee is now about 99% back to pre-injury status and Dr. Ridley has checked in multiple times to see how the progress has been going. I couldn’t be happier to have his insight and professionalism as a guiding aid!

Dr. Kelly and his entire team was outstanding. They answered every question and stayed in contact during the entire shoulder replacement process.

I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. TJ Ridley about shoulder issues I was having. I was having pain from a rotator cuff injury that occured a year (or so) ago. Dr. Ridley provided me a full evaluation, recommended me to physical therapy, and now my shoulder feels significantly better. I specifically told him that I’d like to be able to get back to golfing and working out without pain. He explained how I can accomplish the goal and sent me to the right place for PT, to ensure I was taken care of. For anyone that is in need of a doctor who listens, put’s their patients best interest first, has the knowledge and educational background behind his name, and is passionate about helping others accomplish their medical goals, I would highly recommend an evaluation with Dr. Ridley!

At just 52 years old, Margaret was shocked and scared to realize both of her hips were deteriorating.
A long-long practitioner of karate and a recent CrossFit enthusiast, this active mom realized she couldn’t live with the pain any longer, especially when she could barely walk.
After visiting Dr. Ryan Horazdovsky at Twin Cities Orthopedics, Margaret felt confident a double hip replacement was the right move for her.
“A lot of patients who come to me in their 40’s or early 50’s are concerned they’re too young,” Dr. Horazdovsky said. “They’re very nervous about the idea of having a hip replacement. But, I want patients to find comfort in the idea that a total hip replacement is likely one of the best surgeries in medicine.”
Almost immediately after surgery, Margaret’s pain was gone, and now she’s back enjoying the activities she loves — pain free. For her, this decision was “the best (she) ever made,” and she now feels like she has a new lease on life.
