I could not have asked for a better experience. Dr. Ridley and all of the staff are always so kind and compassionate. Dr. Ridley performed an arthroscopic hip surgery for treatment of hip impingement and labral tear. Dr. Ridley personally called me before surgery to see if I had any questions and he also called me after surgery to see how I was doing. I would recommend him to all my friends and family. I am now 6 weeks post-op and my hip is feeling better than ever! Dr. Ridley is a kind and compassionate physician and I will continue to see him for my future orthopedic needs!

We would like to thank Dr. Hartigan who replaced our 89-year-old mom’s shattered hip last year. He gave us another year with her, as she passed away earlier this year of natural causes. The entire Theis family thanks you!

For the past four years, I have been working with Dr. Charles Eggert to solve my hip problems. My hip pain was so excruciating that it was hard to walk and enjoy the activities I liked to do such as hiking, playing basketball, and weightlifting. I tried physical therapy first, and then decided to have surgery with Dr. Eggert.

I did my post-op PT at TCO Waconia Therapy and Sports Performance. I had a goal of playing basketball this season so Greg Gunderson, DPT, OCS and Jeff Kalow, PTA, collaborated with Dr. Eggert to help me recover and get back to sports.

I do not know where I would be without the care that I received from TCO. I made it back on the court and can do my other activities! My TCO team pushed me weekly, taught me to never give up, and contributed to my love for orthopedics.

Dr. Hartigan and team did an excellent job replacing my hip. I’m 6 months on the new hip and am doing very well. I only need to take my cane if it’s icy out or if it is snowing. I highly recommend Dr David Hartigan.

I’m 48 years and had hip replacement surgery. I choose Dr. O’Neill since he does the anterior approach. It’s been 10 weeks since my surgery and I am pain free. I actually played basketball 10 weeks after surgery. I can’t believe how much better I feel and I wish I would have done it sooner. Dr. O’Neill was great and I would highly recommend him.

My husband Richard is 69 years old and had a hip replacement recently. At 7 weeks post-op he is doing fantastic! At first he contemplated seeing another doctor who performed this surgery using the anterior approach, which is advertised to have a shorter and easier recovery. After talking to Dr. Ridley, he explained to us that research shows that the posterior approach’s healing and recovery time was just the same. We are so happy we chose Dr. Ridley to perform his surgery!

Not only is he a great surgeon, he is personable, friendly, happy, and takes as much time as you need to answer all of your questions. His entire team is awesome too. His care coordinator, his PA, and nurse are so helpful and knowledgeable. Whoever said that the anterior approach was the best way to go was wrong. Dr. Ridley performs the posterior approach and people can’t believe how great Richard’s recovery is going.

If you are considering having a hip replacement, please consider Dr. Ridley as your orthopedic surgeon. You’ll never regret it. We also highly recommend doing your exercises religiously and consider going to physical therapy. You’ll never regret either of these decisions. Thank you, Dr. Ridley! We’ll definitely be seeing you again for the other hip surgery.

Maria P.

Dr. Ridley, thank you SO much! There are no words to express how incredibly grateful I am to have the chance to live life again! This experience has far exceeded my expectations. The path to TCO and your care a very difficult path. I was previously told I had to live with this, so you can imagine how elated I was after our initial meeting. I was beyond excited that I could be fixed and have a chance at an active life once more. That chance is turning out to be a miracle in my eyes! It is very clear you are an amazing doctor/surgeon. Your passion and care for your patients is obvious. I literally traveled by air and land to get that type of care and would do it again in a heartbeat. I have boasted very highly of you up here in the northland! TCO and Dr. Ridley definitely deserve a stellar review. I am excited for my new adventures and I owe it to Dr. Ridley!

James D.

Dr. Peterson and the entire staff at TCO and the EXCEL Program were amazing. The experience itself was so well prepared and everything was communicated so effectively that I was completely confident in having the surgery. Dr. Peterson and staff were kind, friendly and available. From the process of getting everything in place for the surgery to the pre-op, surgery, overnight recovery and discharge was the very best. I also had follow up with Dr. Peterson, Kate and others from TCO and EXCEL to make sure things were going as expected. Thank you so much to everyone. Literally every person I came in contact with from TCO went above and beyond.

Richard S.

Great job by Dr. Ockuly’s team! I am one week out from hip surgery and have no pain in the joint. I am walking and bending with no issue. The surgery went well. His team answered all of my questions and took time to make sure I did not leave with any unanswered questions, and I do ask a lot of them! I only use one crutch outside since it’s winter and I don’t want to slip. I am walking inside without any aids, although I still grab the side rails going up and down stairs just in case. Overall, they did a great job using modern techniques and tools. TCO, Dr. Ockuly, Anne, Dani, and team made the top list and were absolutely the right choice for me.
