I went to see Dr. Hoel because of severe pain in my lower back and down my legs. It was always worse when I was walking and bending over. The pain was relieved when I could sit down, but once I got up, it was only a matter of time before I needed to sit again. An MRI revealed that my 5th lumbar was not stable and was narrowing my spinal cord resulting in the pain down my legs (spondylosis and spondylolisthesis).

Dr. Hoel listened carefully to my descriptions of the pain I was having. He was compassionate and explained my diagnosis carefully. After our first meeting, I decided to do some research and came back to ask more questions. Again, he was very helpful and answered all of my questions and concerns. I tried physical therapy first, but when that proved unsuccessful, I asked to have the surgery. Dr. Hoel suggested to replace my disc and to fuse my 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae together. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I had this surgery! The pain in my back and down my legs was completely gone right away. It was miraculous! Dr. Hoel really impressed me with his kindness, compassion, and knowledge. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others.

I had THE BEST possible surgical outcome with Dr. Ryan Hoel. I had persistent and severe sciatic back, hip, and leg pain due to a herniated disc. It disappeared immediately after microdiscectomy surgery. Recovery was easy compared to the prior pain. It was almost tedious since I felt so well and was excited to return to life activities. I can only wish this level of success for all patients. Thanks to Dr. Hoel, TCO staff, and hospital personnel for prompt, professional, and exceedingly helpful care in turning my life around. My family is ever-so grateful also.

Dr. Eggers was super professional, caring and compassionate. He was very knowledgeable and took my condition very seriously. His level of service was impeccable and his continued follow-up care I received was just as good if not better. I highly recommend Dr. Eggers for his high level of concern for patients, knowledge of his practice, compassion he provides to ensure you feel heard and well cared for!

Andrea Riess, CNP is very passionate about her work and helping people. I was nervous going into my appointment due to my experience with previous doctors looking at my spine. She gave no judgement, only sincere care and identified what I needed to do to improve. She is honest, caring and trustworthy. I would recommend her (x200%) to my friends and family.

I had severe pain in my lower back, which was a bulged disc. Dr. Hoel explained the situation and suggested surgery. After surgery I couldn’t believe how great I felt! Recovery time only took a few days and I felt good as new! I’ve suffered lower back pain for years. It is so wonderful to have a permanent solution. Dr. Hoel is friendly and personable, with a sense of humor. Doctor/Patient rapport is important to me, as it makes me feel at ease and comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Hoel for back/spine treatment.

Dr. Davis performed an anterior cervical discectomy fusion on me in 2009. I was in agony prior to seeing Dr. Davis and I woke up pain-free after the surgery! He’s an amazing surgeon and I will be forever grateful to him.

I went to see Dr. Hoel after two failed attempts of a cortisone spinal injection that was supposed to shrink the cyst in my spine. I was in a lot of pain and had numbness in both legs for about 3 months. Dr. Hoel performed surgery and removed the cyst, and I now am able to walk my dog again and be on my legs for more than 5 minutes. I feel like I have my life back. I received excellent care and he was very attentive to my problem and explained everything so I could understand it.

I can’t thank Dr. Hoel enough for helping my husband. We have seen so many doctors and TCO was the only place that, not only cared, but understood my husband’s pain regarding his herniated disc. He had surgery today and he his feeling a million times better. Thank you again for giving me my husband back! Dr. Hoel is an awesome surgeon. I would trust him with my family or best of friends. Bonus note: he is one of the good ones.
