Dr. Engasser and his team are the best! Before my ankle replacement I could hardly walk or sleep at night due to the pain. Now I am pain free and doing the thing I like to do most, walking!

I recently came to Dr. Ridley to follow up after a fall on the leg that he had repaired. I appreciate Dr. Ridley’s honest approach to care; he is also very thorough. I will continue to recommend him for his professionalism and excellent care.

I cannot say how thankful I am for Dr. Wanderman and his wonderful team! Everyone in Dr. Wanderman’s group at TCO played an important role in getting me back to my best self! I injured my L5-S1 disc 20 years ago, with intermittent conservative treatment I was mostly okay  for a long time. In recent years, I had increasing pain and new areas of pain that would not diminish even with the best conservative treatment and significant weight loss. Dr. Wanderman and Kesenya walked me through the surgery itself and the insurance timeline getting there. I had full trust in them to proceed. My surgery was uneventful and I woke up with no more pain shooting down my legs or into my hips! My low back aches have stopped as well. I sleep SO much better now.

I met PA, Megan, at my post-op who is another amazing person at TCO. She has been instrumental in explaining everything post-op related and is always great to meet with. She answers all my questions! All in all, I cannot say enough good about Dr. Wanderman and his people. I have referred several people to Dr. Wanderman and will continue to do so. Thank you all!

As a young person with back pain, it can be scary. I have been a patient of Dr. Wanderman for about 8 months and she has been nothing short of incredible. She explains everything well and takes you seriously. She is an advocate and does all she can to help you. Her and the team have the most incredible bedside manner of any physician I’ve ever seen. I would recommend her to anyone 100 times over.

After a fall with 4 years of terrible pain, Dr. Bircher eliminated the pain and corrected my short leg to match my good leg. Thank you, Dr. Bircher!

My left knee issues started close to a year ago, so I started seeing Dr. Lewis some time ago. We tried everything we could do to avoid surgery, however in order to resolve the remaining issue with the knee, I had Dr. Lewis replace my left knee some 5 weeks ago. The whole experience in the EXCEL program has been a first-rate affair. The surgery, the after care, the physical therapy, and just today I had my 6-week review with Dr Lewis. I’m pleased to report that the recovery plan has probably put me ahead of schedule!

I’m a very active person in general and Dr. Lewis has supported me in my effort to get back to a normal life.

If I have to replace my right knee down the road, Dr. Lewis will be my surgeon, no if or buts about it!!

Dr. Gerlach has been wonderful to me. I went to other surgeons, and they were going to put a plate on my wrist, which makes NO wrist. When I found Dr. Gerlach, he looked at my x-rays, said he could do surgery and that I would still have 70% of my wrist motion. In March 2023 I had my left wrist done. It was a major surgery so most healing to get back to normal was about 3 months. After recovering, I was able to hold my fishing pole and filet my fish, until the right wrist went bad. Now this February 2024, Dr. Gerlach did my right wrist. I’m still in recovery but I hope to be fishing in Devils Lake by end of June. Thank you again I highly recommend Dr. Gerlach for any hand or wrist surgery.

I had a right total knee replacement on September 5, 2023, and a left total knee replacement on January 2, 2024. Both replacements were done by Dr. Arntson at Mercy Hospital. I have so much respect for Dr. Arntson. He is very knowledgeable, has a great bed side manner, and explains everything fully. I was back to working an active job six weeks after each surgery. Thank you to Dr. Arntson and his entire team for giving me a new lease on life pain free!

With years of aches and two prior knee surgeries it was time for a replacement that previously was denied by another physician due to a blot clot issue. Dr. Bircher and I had an open discussion about the clot issue and after careful testing and consultations it was agreed that the surgery could be done with minimal concern. I felt Dr. Bircher and Kari Gabrielse, PA-C were serious and straight forward of the pros and cons of having the surgery as well the physical therapy necessary after the surgery which wasn’t easy. I felt so positive of the overall process they took me through, the support staff in the OR, and the after-surgery care from the hospital staff that I could only rate them as 5 STAR practitioners.

I had a recent total right knee replacement by Dr. Bircher and I am so happy with the outcome! I was surprised that I had no pain during recovery, just slight discomfort, and I was back to work sooner than I expected. My whole experience from scheduling the surgery, having surgery, and physical therapy was all so positive! My knee feels great!! I will request Dr. Bircher for my left knee replacement as soon as I’m able. Keep up the excellent work!!
