I had an accident about 6 years ago. I wasn’t in a lot of pain but as the years passed, it got worse. Just this year it was so bad that I couldn’t walk, stand, sit or sleep for very long. I was referred to Dr. Hoel and he was an angel! We sat down for a talk and I told him I was past the shot phase and needed surgery. It went great. I am 6 weeks post-surgery and I feel better than my old self! I have recommended him to my sister and daughter. Thank you Dr. Hoel. I can’t say that enough!

I suffered from lower back pain, which gradually went down my legs for over a year. Eventually the pain shooting down my legs was so extensive that I was unable to stand for more than a minute and couldn’t walk without constant pain. I saw Dr. Davis, hoping for some pain relief. We started with physical therapy and then injections but I didn’t get the relief we’d hoped for. The pain was becoming unbearable. By this point, surgery was the last option and I had a bilateral laminectomy. I recently saw Dr. Davis for a three month post-surgery checkup. I told Dr. Davis he was my hero and thanked him profusely because I no longer have pain when I stand or walk. I know that I am very fortunate to have such a successful outcome – and I cannot thank Dr. Davis and his team enough.

I fell and tore my quad tendon in early April. Based on the severity of my injury, a return to 80% functionality was all that I could expect after surgery. Now 5 months later, I’m back to 95% and doing all the things I did before the injury. I couldn’t be happier with the care I received and the outcome of the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Sanders and TCO physical therapy to anyone in need.

First of all, let me begin by telling you that I am one of those famous procrastinators in life. Having lived with constant aggravation, and yes, even pain for quite some time, I visited Dr. Saterbak at the TCO office in Stillwater, MN. I believe my first consultation was in the latter part of 2019. While at my first consultation, and after viewing the x-rays of my knee, Dr. Saterbak confirmed what I probably already knew, I needed a total knee replacement. With the guidance of both Dr. Saterbak and her wonderful assistant Dana Kaufman, and Sarah, my total knee replacement was on the schedule for just after the initial COVID-19 outbreak. On June 18, 2020 I went in for surgery.

I am now in my fourth month of recovery and needless to say, I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I am very close to feeling 100% normal and at my recent follow-up visit, Dr. Saterbak gave me full clearance to carry on with my normal life again. That is due, in part, to not only a wonderful surgery team, but also to both Dan Stark and Ali at TCO rehabilitation center in Woodbury. Sure it was tough, but Dan and Ali insisted that they kept me in check with exercises and their kind approach to my rehab. My key words to all those who are reading this are, be patient, it takes some time to rehab. Needless to say, I don’t know why I waited as long as I did to get my normal life back again. Perhaps I’m a bit too stubborn. So, if you are reading this and have knee pain or discomfort, make an appointment with Dr. Saterbak and her team. I guarantee that you will be fully taken care of with utmost care. My deepest gratitude to everyone with Dr. Saterbak’s team and to the wonderful rehab staff at TCO in Woodbury. Blessings to all.

I love Dr. Riggi and his bedside manner. I am 2 years out from left knee surgery and 5 weeks out from right knee surgery. I am totally satisfied with the outcome on both knees and his treatment. After 5 weeks, my scar is barely visible! I know I am lucky to heal so fast but I credit Dr. Riggi for excellent care!

After several years of getting Cortisone shots in my right shoulder, I decided to find an Orthopedist recognized for the success on repairing shoulders. In my web’s research, standing out was Dr. Frank Norberg. I got immediate access for the first appointment with plenty flexibility for the ones to follow. Meeting him and his entire team was an excellent experience. The communication at all levels was extraordinary; from the telephone attendants, receptionists, nurses, PT personal and Operating Room’s personal, I found excellent care to solve my problem. From the first appointment to the very last one Dr. Norberg exceeded all my expectations, my rotating cuff was fully repaired as he described, with almost no discomfort. His patience and communication abilities are OUTSTANDING. I am 70 years old fully recovered and thankful to him and the team he has chosen.

I had hip replacement surgery through the EXCEL program in June 2020. I was terrified to have surgery, but in unbearable pain. My life had come to a halt due to limited mobility and pain, so replacement was my only option. Dr. Owen O’Neill offered me reassurance that he “would get me through this” and he did exactly that! The pain following surgery is so much less than the pain before. Every staff I had contact with was professional, kind and compassionate, which put me at ease. Their knowledge and skill was notable. I had PT through TCO after surgery and again, with excellent staff, and I made good progress. Before surgery I did not even get 500 steps a day on my Fitbit, but now I easily get 10-12,000, without using a cane! I can put on my socks and shoes without pain. I can get into my car without intense pain. Sitting, standing, walking and sleeping are all pain-free now. I am eternally grateful to Dr. O’Neill and all the staff at TCO in their clinic and EXCEL program. As a nurse, and as a patient, I would highly recommend Dr. O’Neill and the TCO EXCEL program. I feel like I have my life back again, and this is huge!

I had a total ankle replacement one year ago. Dr. Den Hartog and his staff did a great job. I get around better than I have in years. I would do it again. Thanks for everything.

Dr. Anseth was highly recommended to me for knee surgery. He replaced my left knee on August 31, 2020. I heard some interesting post-knee-surgery stories from friends in other states, and I have to say my results and rehab have been beyond expectations. No problems, great mobility, much easier to walk up and down stairs, and an overall improvement in my ability to perform daily functions. I am so grateful for his surgical talent and the fact that my knee is functioning at such a high level in less than 2 months. Thank you to Dr. Anseth, Heidi, Amber (PT) and the fantastic care team at Abbott.

I was referred to Dr. Hunt from a friend who worked within TCO. She didn’t hesitate for a minute when I asked her. Dr. Hunt is not only an amazing doctor he is also a kind, gentle, caring, and very humble man. He always took the time to explain anything I had questions about. Before my shoulder surgery his team went above and beyond to keep me comfortable and relaxed before surgery and during recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Hunt and his team to anyone and everyone.
