I had a severe tear in my 76 year old shoulder. Dr. Frank Norberg did an outstanding job of repairing the tear. I have great range of motion and I am free of pain. The shoulder now functions as it did before the injury. In addition to an excellent outcome, Dr. Norberg was great to work with. He was direct, straight-forward and a good motivator. I would highly recommend him for shoulder problems to any family member or friend.

Can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Deal and my spine surgery. I had never been through surgery as an adult and it couldn’t have been smoother. Recovery was virtually painless and the results are spectacular. I have regained most of the function I lost pre-surgery and have no pain. Dr. Deal was easy to talk to and answered all my questions. Well done!

I had not experienced a surgical procedure for 76 years, so I was somewhat apprehensive about having surgery at my age. While attending the hip replacement orientation, I was introduced to techniques that prepared me for the surgery ahead. My first meeting with Dr. O’Neill further relieved my anxiety, as he clearly explained the procedure mixed with a soft and gentle sense of assuring humor. My entry to the Southdale Medical Center and preparation for surgery was conducted by compassionate personnel who concentrated on my overall comfort. When I was wheeled into surgery, I was greeted by Dr. O’Neill and my next memory was waking up and being assured of a successful hip replacement. After a day and a half and a moderate walk, I was released from the hospital. My first week I relied on a walker, my second week on a cane, and the third week I began walking without assistance. During my early recovery, I experienced some minor discomfort but my total experience was relatively pain-free. I am content with my decision and especially grateful to Dr. O’Neill for his surgical skills and confident assurance together with all those who accommodated my every need. My previous hip pain that continually accompanied me while walking and sleeping is now gone and I am enjoying a pain-free life.

In 2019, both my husband and I were dealing with severe osteoarthritis hip pain. I researched orthopedic surgeons and feel that I found the very best! Dr. Owen O’Neill was able to get us both in for anterior total hip replacements. From the first meetings with Dr. O’Neill we had a positive experience! He explained the procedure thoroughly and made us feel confident about our decision. Dr. O’Neill, Mitch, Ann, the nurses and specialists, were professional and supportive. We were able to return to our daily routine and activities, especially walks which we couldn’t do before surgery, within 2-3 weeks! We are grateful for Dr. O’Neill’s skills and expertise and for the caring and support we received throughout our whole experience!
I have been meaning to write this for three years, and with the anniversary of my injury it finally prompted me to do so! Three years ago to the day, I felt a “pop” in my knee when squatting to pick up a tennis ball. Such a freak accident! Boy, did I get lucky when I landed with Dr. Hamilton. What we thought was a meniscus tear turned out to be a partial tear of my ACL, requiring surgery. Receiving that news was beyond shocking, however, Dr. Hamilton was so consultative and informative which helped calm my nerves. The way that my ACL had torn gave us options, which was great to hear! Instead of needing a complete reconstruction of my ACL, she was able to try a newer procedure repairing the existing ACL. Not only would this arthroscopic surgery be minimally invasive, leaving virtually nothing for scars, but it would also minimize my recovery period down to only 5 months instead of 9 months! Dr. Hamilton’s knowledge of this type of surgery immediately gained my trust and it was a complete success! I am so happy to report that 3 years later, my knee gives me ZERO problems. I can workout and run like I did before my injury; I can wear heels without issues. What I thought was going to be a devastating, life-altering event, turned out to be just a blip in the story of my life. I am confident that, paired with my diligent physical therapy, Dr. Hamilton was absolutely the reason for this success story and I am so thankful for her expertise. I would absolutely recommend anyone to her in a heartbeat, as she helped ensure that my injury would not impact my lifestyle for the rest of my life.

From the 1st time I met with Dr. Peterson, I was impressed. He took the time to look at all the past history, the current x-rays and examined my knee. He informed me that I was a good candidate for total knee replacement. When I asked what was involved, he explained the procedure to me including any possible risks that could accompany the procedure. He assured me everything would be done to reduce any chance of the risks, and in doing so made me feel very comfortable about moving forward. Several weeks later I had the surgery and was home the next day. I was up and walking the 1st day following surgery and was able to walk without any assistance in just under two weeks. My 2 week follow up with Dr. Peterson’s P.A. was very pleasant and I was advised everything was going well. I returned to see Dr. Peterson at the 6 week post-op date and I was returned to work with no restrictions.
Dr. Peterson and his entire care team are outstanding in every aspect. When I had questions, and believe me I had plenty, I always received answers the very same day. I would recommend Dr. Peterson and his care team to anyone. They are “TOP NOTCH”. You won’t find anyone better.

When it came time to choose a new doctor, it was an easy choice for me… As a high school coach, I saw the care that Dr. Holm and the team at TCO provides our athletes. Dr. Holm performed my knee replacements with great skill and care. I especially appreciated that when my unusual situation caused additional unforeseen complications, Dr. Holm wasn’t too proud to seek the collaboration of other members of the experienced TCO surgical team. Now I am again walking my dog daily and I even went hiking in the mountains on vacation… something I have not been well enough to do for many years.

From the first phone call to make an appointment EVERYONE was friendly, helpful and compassionate. I’m 80 years of age and needed a reverse shoulder replacement. Dr. Mair and his staff took the extra time to discuss my options and ultimately let me make the decision. Although this was not HIS first time doing shoulder surgery, it was MY first time and I felt he took all the time I needed to answer questions and reassure me that all would go well… and it DID! He, the hospital staff, everyone was so caring and understanding. My daughter went to the cafeteria to get lunch and a hospital staff person, that was in line behind her, paid for her lunch! So when I say everyone, I mean everyone 🙂 I cannot say enough about Dr. Jeffery Mair, and everyone who works with him, for their wonderful care and thoughtfulness. I will definitely recommend this doctor and this facility to anyone I know that needs his expertise! Thank you SO much! I’m glad it’s all done and I can start my physical therapy and look forward to having a pain free shoulder.

As a patient of Dr. Steven Moen for years, I would like to express myself on his behalf. Dr. Moen is a remarkable orthopedic surgeon, whom I respect for his honesty, knowledge, candor and passion for his profession. I’ve had both my knees replaced by him and currently I sought his opinion on my hip. Osteoarthritis and age are not kind to the human body. I accept his opinion through the use of x-rays, my past diagnoses and his brilliance. Anyone interested in being seen by an intelligent and honest orthopedic surgeon should call Dr. Moen. You’ll be so glad you did. Thank you, Dr. Moen, for everything!
