I came to Dr. Deal for a herniated disc with neurological deficits on my left side. After looking at my MRI he recommended a microdiscectomy. He was patient in answering all my questions, quick to explain pros and cons of surgery, and made me feel heard and understood. For 4 weeks prior to surgery all I was able to do was lie in bed, and the afternoon following surgery I was standing and walking around. Seeing Dr. Deal and following his recommendation for surgery literally changed my life.

Right from the start I knew I was in good hands with Dr. Arntson. He told me everything I needed to know about my right hip replacement surgery and answered all of my questions. I felt confident and positive about Dr. Arntson and the surgery, which I believe helped the outcome. I feel great! I felt good right after the surgery and it only improved as time went on. Here at the 4 week mark I have no pain and my mobility is amazing. This surgery with Dr. Arntson is near to miraculous. I have my life back and I know shortly I will be able to do all the things I love to do. I know that if I need this procedure in my left hip in the future, Dr. Arntson will be my go to doctor. Thank you for giving me my life back!

I had 2 previous elbow surgeries and had lost about 50 degrees range of motion and had bad arthritis pain. Lived with it for 10 years because doctors didn’t feel that anything could be done. Once I was referred to Dr. Norberg, I knew he was the guy to fix this. Surgery went great and I was informed throughout the process. Fast forward a couple months and my pain has subsided and I have almost full range of motion in my elbow. Couldn’t be happier with the progress! The only downside is I wish I would have gone to him sooner!

To the entire staff at TCO,

It is difficult for me to even know how to completely describe the incredible experience I had at TCO during the past few months. Let me start with the facts. I have had a problem with my left knee for about 15 years, ever since a mountain bike accident caused a small stick to penetrate and damage my knee.  This somewhat minor accident caused arthritis to develop. A few years later I had two arthroscopic surgeries to remove pieces and shape my meniscus. This helped but years later the arthritis continued to advance. My first consultation with Dr. Christopher Meyer at this point put me on a path to relieve the pain for several more years.  Of course, we knew at some point a knee replacement would become necessary. We arrived at that point this fall.

From the time that Dr. Meyer recommended the replacement to today (8 weeks post surgery) my experience has been nothing but extraordinary. I cannot think of a better customer service experience in my lifetime! The care and attention I have received at every level has been amazing! There has not been a moment during this process that I didn’t feel completely cared for. The folks at the surgery center were amazing, everything was explained in ways that I completely understood and my concerns were listened to and addressed. The aftercare following surgery made me feel very encouraged and comfortable. I never felt like I was being rushed out and I felt like those attending to me considered me important.

Then, I went to Aurora for the rest of the day and one night. Oh, my gosh! I literally felt like I was the only patient there. But it was more than just the care and attention. The staff was friendly and, again, they never seemed rushed. I appreciated the time they took to have conversation with me and just be available. They took the time to listen to how I was doing and remembered things like I REALLY like my coffee and accommodated me on some of those little things that make you feel so at home. I have to drop a big thank you to Rachel! I know there were others but I don’t remember all the names. Sorry!

The follow-up has also been amazing! I’ve gotten timely calls to make sure I was doing ok and to ask if I needed anything. Also, Sommer has been wonderful in answering all my questions and making sure I have everything I need.

Then, it was on to TCO Burnsville for physical therapy and Alissa has also been amazing. Once again, she listened to all the little nuances of how my knee is doing and how I was feeling each time I went there. She has been encouraging every time and each time I left facility I felt like I knew exactly what I needed to do to keep progressing.

If I could think of one thing you could improve on, I would tell you.  But… I can’t think of one thing! I truly wish I could remember the names of all the people who attended to me throughout this process but I can’t. Just know that every one of them should be commended because EVERY ONE of them did a great job! Dr. Meyer, Sommer, the folks at the check-in desks, the nurses, the attendants, the anesthesiologist, the aftercare folks, Rachel, Alissa…every one of them.

How glad I was that I was given Dr. Gesensway to take care of me. His professionalism is beyond most. His sequence of pre-op questions were pertinent. His team of nurses, technicians, anesthesiologists and all who work for him were friendly and ready to operate and heal me with no complaints that I was the last surgery of the day and the week. Dr. Gesensway is a reassuring comfort with his smile and observance of my swelling and pain after the fall and post op. Only God Almighty directed me to his door and office in such a timely manner. Thank you all for assisting in the rehabilitation of my right arm so I can return to my chores at home as a wife, grandmother and mother. I look forward to playing golf with my husband, Roger, of fifty years this spring.

I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Owen O’Neill and his team. The whole experience has exceeded my expectations. Before my left hip started giving me trouble, I was very active at the club doing HIIT, barre and spinning classes, but I gradually had to stop. I wish I didn’t wait a year and a half before finally deciding to go through a total hip replacement. Dr. O’Neill was highly recommended by a friend, so I decided to go through with it. Since this would be my first surgery, I was very nervous about pain, having to depend on pain medications and physical therapy. I thought I would be laid up for a couple months or more. To my surprise, I had no pain at all and took only Tylenol for 10 days (no opioids). The only physical therapy needed was walk, walk, walk and a few leg exercises. I was able to walk around my cul-de-sac with a walker the second day home and I ditched the walker after 5 days. I’ve gradually increased my walking to 3 miles per day. All of my friends and family thought I was a “rock star,” they couldn’t believe how well I was doing in such a short time. Now after 8 weeks, I am able to get back to the club and resume all my normal activities. I have, and definitely will always, recommend Dr. O’Neill to anyone with hip, shoulder or knee issues.

Dr. Riggi did an awesome job with arthroscopic procedures on both of my knees. Seven years after repairing my left knee, I experienced issues with my other knee. Based on the excellent work he performed with the left knee, he was my surgeon of choice to work on the right knee. Dr. Riggi brings expertise, common sense and an authentic sense of joy in serving patients.

It happened so fast! Wham, I fell forward hitting my right shoulder on the pavement/curb. ER trip indicated multiple bone fractures on my upper right humerus. My call to TCO was “I want the best shoulder doctor available”. Enter Dr. Jason Dieterle and his fabulous team. Surgery was scheduled 4 days out at Lakeview Hospital. The surprise was that it was actually shattered and the doc had to remove fragments of bone before inserting a plate held together with pins. Seven months later, a pin pulled out of the bone and scans indicated that the bone would not mend. A second surgery was scheduled to remove plate and pins which were replaced by reverse shoulder equipment. Through all the pain and rehabilitation and dealing with my disappointment about an added surgery, Dr. Dieterle and his team consoled and encouraged me. I am so grateful. I got the best shoulder doctor plus his fantastic team.

Dr. Patrick Ebeling performed bunion surgery on my left foot in April of 2019. Every aspect of my diagnosis, surgery and follow up with Dr. Pat and his team was successful. Dr. Pat and his team are very professional, courteous and explicit about instructions, home care, etc. I have friends and family that have had complications with other providers for their bunion surgeries. My experience was positive in every respect. I will use their team to perform the same surgery on my right foot when the time is right.

Dr. Kirksson was truly wonderful for me. He listens carefully and you really come to understand that he cares about you and wants to help you with your medical problem. Listening carefully and taking the time with a patient is rare today, but he does it naturally. His calm demeanor and thorough explanations immediately lowered my anxiety and stress levels. I initially saw him for problems with terrible pain with my neck that other doctors – surgeons – had said required surgery. He successfully treated my neck without surgery and it hasn’t bothered me since. Years later when I had persistent lower back pain, he was obviously my first choice. I recommend him to my friends and family, as needed, without hesitation.
