I had surgery on my right hip which was bone on bone and waited a little too long. For two years my wife and I planned a bucket list trip to Africa. If it wasn’t for Dr. Owen O’Neill and his group, I would never of been able to make the trip. Ten weeks after surgery I was able to fly, ride comfortably and enjoy a trip of a lifetime. Thank you.

Dr. Owen O’Neill did both of my hips, about 2 years apart. The results were amazing. I was out of the hospital within 24 hours. I used no prescription pain pills and no pills at all after 1 week. I am 79 and was walking normally after 3 weeks and running (singles tennis) after 2 months. There was no therapy besides walking.

Saved my life! It took other doctors 18 months to figure out why I was in pain 24/7. Finally one took x-rays and both hips were bone-on-bone. I went to Dr. Gulli and seeing how much pain I was in, he had me in for the first replacement in 5 days! That was April 10, 2018. My care was fabulous! I went back to work after 2.5 weeks and then had my second hip replaced May 15, 2018. Once again, I was back to work in 2.5 weeks! This weekend I am going dancing! The physical care and the emotional support from Dr. Gulli and Margaret Baranowski was wonderful. I truly have no pain and am better than before! I will never be able to thank them enough.

I picked Dr. Szalapski out of a phone book 18 years ago at 43 years old needing a hip replacement. He was professional and gave me all the information I didn’t want to hear! I lucked out and got the best results I could have hoped for! He has since replaced my other hip, a knee and most recently my shoulder. I love him and tell everyone I know to go to him! He doesn’t always tell you what you want to hear but honestly not his fault. I thank God I randomly picked him I’ve gotten the best results on all my surgeries and can honestly say I have no residual pain. His staff is awesome and I could not be happier and no I’m not related ha!

Being 53 and living an active lifestyle include hockey, hunting and a physically demanding job, I started to feel pain and loss of mobility in my left hip. A visit to a surgeon was in order. Upon leaving the consultation with a different doctor I felt like I was keeping him from something more important than me. That was not the case with Dr. Arntson. Upon leaving I knew he was going to be my surgeon. A total hip replacement was performed with the anterior approach. Amazing!! Within 8 weeks I was back to work doing my job delivering beer and ready for the fall hunting season not babying my new hip at all. I highly recommend Dr. Arntson and his staff so much that when my right side is to be replaced he will be performing the surgery.

Dr. Arntson was honest, informative and an excellent surgeon. He was clear in the objectives my partial knee replacement would achieve. He made no outlandish promises of a “fountain of youth.” I am relatively young at 53 years old and wanted a procedure that was viable to help me enjoy my work/recreational life but also allow flexibility if 15-20 years down the road if I needed more surgery.
The Dr. Arntson and staff are excellent with providing information you truly need and respecting the educational background you also possess (I worked in physical therapy 18 years and am currently Hospice RN). I am post-surgery day 3 and have not used any pain medications and have minimal swelling. Today was also my first day evaluated by TCO Physical Therapist Eric who is also eager to listen to my goals and questions following surgery. So far 6 stars out of 5!
I have been employed in Healthcare for 27 years and never experienced this level of world-class expertise combined with people who truly care! Dr. Arntson and TCO have assembled a unique team of people dedicated to improving my work/life balance.

I had my first hip replacement in August of 2017 and my second one done in June of 2018. Dr. Brian O’Neill is simply the best of the best. I had so much pain leading up to both surgeries and after both surgeries, I needed no pain meds other than Advil and Tylenol. Dr. O’Neill literally gives you your life back.

I had both of my hips replaced by Dr. Chris Meyer at Ridgeview Medical Center. I had an excellent experience and felt that I was well cared for throughout the process from Dr. Meyer’s physician’s assistant, to Dr. Meyer and his surgical team, and finally to the Ridgeview team post-surgery. I am an extremely satisfied customer!
Good morning, I stopped by your office in Stillwater yesterday. I was in the area and wanted to express my extreme pleasure on the outcome of my hip replacement your team performed in January of this year. I was able to tell the staff up front about complete satisfaction.
Everything I was told before my operation was spot on and beyond my expectations. Everyone on your team gave 110% and I am extremely grateful for the outcome. Prior to surgery, I was unable to sit comfortably and when getting on my motorcycle I witnessed a lot of pain trying to lift my leg over the frame. I no longer have this pain and now can sit comfortably and can now lift my knee to bend over to my other knee with out any discomfort. Another bonus is I can now walk more upright and without the pain I previously had. It is very nice to be able to take a speed walk with my wife without experiencing a fair level of discomfort/pain! Also, I was very impressed with your visit the night of my surgery….even with the snow storm.
In closing, thank you and your great team for the wonderful outcome of my surgery. I am very grateful to be able to get back to doing things I didn’t think I would ever be able to do again!

I have been dealing with osteoarthritis for a number of years. When I finally decided to do something about it, I had Dr. Arntson recommended to me. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor in every way. He is kind, a good listener and really cares about his patients. But, most important, he is an excellent surgeon. I have had very quick recoveries in both hips as his surgery experience is the less traumatic anterior hip replacement. Thank you Dr. Arntson, from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to better days ahead.
