I just want to thank Dr. Gesensway and his team (Julie in PT and Sarah his medical coordinator) for all their hard work to get me fixed up. I had Dupuytrens disease in my left palm and in 2 fingers on the same hand. Had surgery in October 2019 and after a month or so I had full use of my left hand. If luck would have it, I also had Dupuytrens in my right palm and extensive damage to my pinky finger from a prior surgery, and Dupuytrens in my little finger to complicate matters. Dr. Gesensway took care of me for this in early December of 2019. Although I am still tender and recovering from the latter, his work and expertise in surgery is wonderful. He is a very caring yet funny guy. He actually takes the time to explain things and listens to feedback, unlike a lot of health care professionals. Thanks again Dr. Gesensway.

Dr. Paul Diekmann, based upon my experiences, is an excellent surgeon with an exemplary bedside manner. He has a very calming, reassuring demeanor that instills confidence in the patient. He explained every step of the surgical procedure and addressed any of my concerns. He is a very kind and warm individual and demonstrates a high degree of expertise in his field. I would highly recommend him to family and friends without reservation.

I am a 79 year old patient of Dr. Arntson and have been for about 6 or 7 years. I had been struggling with knee problems for several years, the cartilage had worn away on the insides of both knees. In the beginning, Dr. Arntson started me on Synvisc shots in the knees which worked well at the time and kept me pain free for about six months. After about 3 years, the Synvisc no longer worked and Dr. Arntson started telling me the insides of the knees were now bone on bone. He tried to tell me it was time for knee replacement but I kept holding off thinking they were close to making stem cell therapy work for the knees which would naturally grow new cartilage in the knees. Dr. Arntson, as you have seen in other reviews, is a kind and caring man, pleasant to talk to, who explains everything to you in depth and gives you his best opinion but leaves the decision up to you. I then started getting cortisone shots for the next 3 years, which only helped for about 2 months between shots. Finally they got so bad I talked with Mayo Clinic about the stem cell replacement and they told me that they could replace stem cells and grow cartilage in the knees but had problems with getting blood to the knees to keep them alive and growing. They would only last several months. Finally Dr. Arntson convinced me to do partial knee surgery, which replaces the joint on the inside knee bone and leaves the rest of the knee alone. He told me he would do both knees at once and I finally agreed. It has been almost 5 months since the surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the surgery and Dr. Arntson. I am doing everything with these new knees – biking, golfing, dancing, bowling, and on and on with no pain. I will say, however, that I constantly and religiously did my therapy after the surgery and continued it at home plus I am not overweight, I try to keep myself in shape. I believe that makes a great deal of difference. Thank you so much Dr. Arntson.

After not being able to perform even simple tasks with my right arm, physical therapy did not help. The reverse shoulder replacement was performed by Dr. Dieterle and the pain relief was immediate. Function of the shoulder was better with therapy. After 6 months post surgery, I have movement I have not had in 5 years and it improves daily. I can move and perform tasks over my head that I could not do previously. Shoulder does fatigue after a long day but it improves daily.

I first heard of Dr. Deal through a friend of mine, I was getting treatment in Mankato and I wanted a second opinion. My friend suggested Dr. Deal so my wife contacted his care coordinator, Allyssa, and she said if we could get my records to them by Monday she would be able to schedule an appointment that same day! I jumped at the chance, after two weeks of treatments that weren’t giving me any relief, Dr. Deal looked at my MRI and suggested surgery. I scheduled surgery for the first open date that I could. The surgery was a little more complicated than first thought but they were able to fix the problem that was causing all the pain. In two days I was able to move around almost pain free. I was just so pleased with his bedside manner and his P.A., Nate Schalmo, was just as courteous, answering my questions and concerns. Each follow up appointment was like the first, very in-tune to my questions and concerns. Today was my last follow up (3 months) appointment and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I am virtually pain free! Thank you Dr. Deal and your entire team, I don’t believe I could have gotten better care anywhere else.

Thanks again,
M. M.

Dr. Ockuly was very thorough and listened to every concern I had. He set me up with Scott in PT and he was also great! Dr. Ockuly’s clinic assistant, Dani, was especially helpful. It’s so nice to have staff work quick and always put in 100% efforts. I appreciate all of you so much and could not have asked for better care.

I have been with Dr. Den Hartog since I was 49 years old. I would not be walking today if it was not for him. He is a great doctor and a great person. I have given many recommendations. Thank you so much!

In November I had a total knee replacement. The successful surgery was performed by Dr. Charles Eggert. I was extremely impressed by his ability to find specific antibiotics and pain medications that I was not allergic to. My gratitude, complements and complete satisfaction are extended to him for a surgery with no infections. After many weeks of strenuous physical therapy, I returned to work. I am looking forward to hiking around America’s National Parks.

The pain I was having limited so many things in my daily routine, it change the LIFE I was living. Now, after a total knee replacement with Dr. Dieterle, things seem so normal.

It has been approximately 5 years since Dr. Szalapski performed surgery on my right shoulder. My shoulder feels great. I am now having trouble with my left shoulder. I now live 2 hours away from TCO in Edina. It is well worth the drive for me to have Dr. Szalapski, Jessica, and his whole team be there for my left shoulder.
