Dr. Norberg did a reverse shoulder replacement on me about a year after I had surgery for a humerus break that left me with pain and limited movement of my right arm. He explained what the surgery would entail and the possible outcomes. I opted for the surgery which I had about two months ago. In the after surgery appointments I was impressed by his professionalism and postoperative program in dealing with my situation. As a result, today I have gotten back much of my movement and the pain has subsided. I owe many thanks to Dr. Norberg and his assistant for their expertise.
I actually slept through the night last night for the first time in weeks!
You injected my shoulder and that is what I needed!
I couldn’t believe it when I looked at the clock and it was 8:00am! I was waking up between 2:00-3:00am every night and not sleeping well.
Thank you. You were very nice and professional. I overheard a patient of yours expressing how happy he was and he stated: “you were the best surgeon ever!”.
How nice is that? It made me smile. Thought I would do the same for you.
Thank you again,

Extremely happy with the care I received from Dr. Lewis and the entire staff at Twin Cities Orthopedics. Five stars all around! From the receptionist, to the nurses, to the doctor and especially to “Libby” (Dr. Lewis right hand women), I felt in great and confident hands. I run a small business and understand good service, and would strongly recommend this kind and qualified group of medical staff.

“Let it heal.”
Dr. Riggi has repaired the torn rotator cuff on both of my shoulders. He did a remarkable job each time and I was almost completely pain free one month after surgery. He had me prepared for the limitations and expectations of the three months of the healing process after surgery. His amiable bedside manner is refreshing. His assistants Sarah and Mikki J are both very professional and personable. I have recommended Dr. Riggi and TCO to friends who are considering the same surgery.

I was recently out of town when I broke my leg – true story, and an embarrassing one. Well, I had to go to a nearby emergency room and all I could think about was, “Why can’t there be a TCO everywhere?” I’ve entrusted TCO with my foot, shoulder, and knee injuries. – Michele T., Sportscaster

I presented to Dr. Asp with a dislocated shoulder and subsequent diagnosis of 3 rotator cuff tendon full thickness tests. The obvious solution was surgery. This was performed by Dr. Asp on a Wednesday morning at 6:30 am and I was home recovering by 9:30 that same morning. This was a ‘scary’ diagnosis to have been given, but I can say without any degree of hesitation that I felt very comfortable and confident with Dr. Asp and his team, all the way from pre-op to the post operative appointment. He is a very gifted physician to whom many skills have been given. I am very grateful to have been in such capable hands. I will refer anybody to Dr. Asp and the team at TCO.

My experience with TCO was a very positive experience. I first went there in January of 2014 when I fell at work and tore my rotator cuff. Dr. Kelly was my physician. I had surgery in February to repair the tear. I shared with Dr. Kelly that I had planned to get my knee replacement in the spring and was disappointed that it wouldn’t happen. His reply was, “oh we can do that.” He told me he also did knees and depending on my recovery from shoulder surgery, it could probably be done in May.
Well, I had a great recovery and while still getting Physical Therapy, discussed having the knee replacement done.
The staff was very excited to tell me that I would qualify to go through the Excel program. Not having to be in the hospital was very appealing and having a class about the procedure was very helpful. York Gardens, where you go for recovery, was a beautiful and very comfortable facility!
The surgery went well, and it was very comforting to have Dr. Kelly and Lindsay in the operating room. Going to the room at York Gardens was so nice and the staff there was very helpful and pleasant.
The Physical Therapist was patient but yet encouraged me to do what I needed to do. The food was very tasty. I felt I was in an apartment and not in a hospital room.
I would, and have, recommended the Excel program to people who need a knee replacement. I appreciate all the help I got from all of the staff. From the appointment desk to the Physical Therapists, and everything in between, I am very happy with the experience and outcome!

After multiple visits to different doctors to diagnose my shoulder problems with no luck, I visited Dr. Butterfield. He took the time to listen to my concerns of the pain and what I wanted to do with my everyday life. ( I wasn’t able to sleep at night and I also did not want to give up crossfit.) After all the tests, it was determined that the only way to help was surgery. Dr. Butterfield took his time to discuss the different ways to correct the problem and also which option was the best. After 4 months of rehab Dr. Butterfield gave me the all clear to resume all my activities. I could not be happier with the results. I am back doing crossfit and sleeping at night.

The entire process was accomplished with superb guidance and anticipation of the patient’s perspective. I am now pain free with full range of motion.

This summer, after years of arthritic pain and Cortisone shots, I finally summoned up the courage to have my shoulders replaced. I can’t begin to thank Dr. Kelly enough. I knew within a day of the surgery that things were going to eventually get better. It was amazing! Within just two weeks, I wanted to get the other shoulder done. Dr. Kelly agreed to do the other one 7 weeks later. I teasingly say it’s like a miracle, but in a way, it truly is. For me it’s been life changing. I’m down to just 2 Advil a day – which I can’t believe. The weird cracking sounds I could hear in my body are GONE! I’m able to clean my house, get dressed, and do all sorts of things that were so painful before. The best thing of all – I can sleep comfortably again! What a difference. I would recommend Dr. Kelly to anyone. He and his PA, Lindsey Anderson, are excellent – not just for the surgery itself, but for all the follow up. I have really benefitted from the Twin Cities Orthopedics EXCEL program.
