Dr. McGarvey – You have been such a blessing to us in 2017. It means more than you will ever know to now be able to walk pain-free for the first time in 15+ years. I feel very fortunate to have found such a caring, gifted doctor with an exceptionally helpful P.A. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

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

Hello, TCO! I wanted to write in and share how thankful I am for Dr. Jason Holm and the fantastic work that he did to repair my badly broken leg/ankle. It’s been just about a year since my last/final surgery and 2½ years since my injury. I am thrilled, and oh so thankful to be back to my pre-injury life with no more pain! Only a few scars to remind me of my “little” riding accident when I broke my fib, tib and ankle into bits. Many of my family and friends will only share with me now that they never thought I would be 100% again but would likely be walking with a limp for the rest of my days. I’m so glad to have proved them wrong. One of my goals was to be able to get back to living the active outdoor life that I enjoyed before the injury, including hiking/backpacking in the mountains. This last October it happened! My husband and I took the Colorado backpacking trip that we were supposed to have done the fall after I broke my leg. The attached picture is of me at Snowmass Lake – 11,000 feet above sea level! It was a very challenging 8½ mile trip each way, but absolutely no leg/ankle issues/pain or discomfort. This was the ultimate test of my healing and the great work of Dr. Holm. Thank you Dr. Holm and TCO for giving me my life back!

Dr. Butterfield is an extremely knowledgeable, capable, and caring surgeon. He cared for my teenage son from Urgent Care, MRIs, through surgery, to follow ups. He consults with other surgeons to ensure he is on top of the latest information. I would recommend him to any parent needing to hand their child over to a surgeon.

Dr. Langer gets it done quick, without much pain at all, and is very knowledgeable in the field.

I’m an active senior, but was struggling with a constantly ulcerated hammertoe and bunion that was very painful, especially in cross-country ski boots and biking shoes. Dr. Jeffrey Seybold got me back in the mix of doing all the sports I love with no pain. Highly successful surgery last June and I’m single track mountain biking with my grandson again! I loved how professional he and the entire staff at TCO was!

I just wanted to make sure that I fully expressed my appreciation for all of the people at Twin Cities Orthopedics. They ALL went above and beyond my expectations in order to help me with my unique and untimely injury. And ALL truly means each and every one. From the very first interaction it was as if I had gone to another level of patient care that I had never experienced before.
When I came by to drop off the imaging CD from my ER visit, the very personable and exceptionally nice woman at reception took extra time to upload the CD so that I could keep the disk for backup. She also took the time to hand carry it to the imaging department as her computer terminal was not confirming the upload. Lisa Long went the extra mile to fit me into Dr. Coetzee’s schedule so that he could perform the surgery before he went out of town. And then she went another extra mile to fit me in on a reschedule when insurance referral issues delayed the first surgery opportunity. Mary Wolf and Kristine Odegard both put in a herculean effort to get my insurance’s referral approved in two days, when it usually takes the system ten to fourteen. Larry Nilsson, Dr. Coetzee’s Physician Assistant with Jackie Fritz took out the stitches and advised me with care. And every interaction was personable, kind and not hurried or dismissive in any way. Each of these feats alone puts Twin Cities Orthopedics in the incredible category, but for them to all happen in coordination to attend to a patient’s urgent need is a health care synergy that is head and shoulders above any other medical interaction I have had in my 57 years – and my penchant for extreme sports has given me many interactions from which to claim my assessment to be authoritative. And of course, the personable and positive attitude of one of the very small handful of the very best foot and ankle doctors in the world – Dr. Coetzee – gave comfort and confidence that the best possible outcome for this unfortunate injury is in the cards. There just could not have been a better clinic to go to as Twin Cities Orthopedics and Dr. Coetzee are simply in a stand-alone, superlative category of patient care.

In 2006 my left foot had totally collapsed. I had seen 4 podiatrists & 1 orthopedic foot specialist, all with different outcomes – a surgery recommendation that just did not sound right to me, a brace, and custom orthotics which didn’t help at all. Then my primary physician recommended Dr. Coetzee. I was able to get an appointment in 4 months (I lucked out!) and scheduled my foot reconstruction 2 months later. He was worth the wait! Then in 2014, my right foot needed plate and of course Dr. Coetzee was my doctor. I do a lot of dancing and I am back to doing it all – Latin, Ballroom, Swing – with no limitations whatsoever. Not only is he the best, but he is compassionate and he listens. Thank you Dr. Coetzee.

I had foot surgery on May 6th, 2016. Dr. Vargas was my doctor and I can not say enough about the surgery. It took a short time. The surgery was to remove a bunion. It was painless and the recovery has been great. I am diabetic and have to be careful with my feet. No worries, with the care I received from Dr. Vargas and his assistant Jenna. Thanks to you both! Very happy.

My surgery was months ago and I am so pleased with how well my feet have healed! My bunion pain is gone, I can hike and I no longer have foot or leg pain. I can even wear shoes that used to cause extreme pain due to the bunions. The scars have healed really well, and the added bonus is that my feet look really nice. Swimming twice a week has really helped my recovery process. With my feet back to normal now, I tend to forget that I even had surgery. I wish I had heard of Dr. Coetzee years ago. He knows what he is doing!
