Dr. Linda F.
I would like to endorse Dr. Tanner to everyone who has foot issues. He is extremely talented very attentive to my issues. As an international level athlete back in the 70s, we had very few physicians that had a clue about musculoskeletal injuries, and fewer that knew how to treat them. So many of us baby boomers are wearing out, old injuries are becoming a very real quality of life issue. So dealing with multiple injuries is not foreign to me. Dr. Tanner is only one of two physicians who listened to me and fixed foot issue (the first time). In my experience that’s a bit of a rarity, since I am still waiting (because of COVID) to have both of my shoulders repaired/replaced for the third time. Super thanks again Dr. Tanner!

5 years ago I had bi-lateral knee replacement surgery done by Dr. Kruse, and the surgeries were 3 months apart. The surgeries went well and my recuperation went well too. I’m using those repaired knees pain-free now, as I recuperate from recent heart bypass surgery. As I do rehab for my heart, I am once again realizing that my knees are able to do the necessary walking and biking motion without any stiffness or pain thanks to Dr. Kruse and my knee surgeries. He is a great surgeon, patient focused and motivated me to use my new knees. I would highly recommend him to care for others.

My 10 year old had his finger tip cut off by a door hinge. It was a traumatic experience thinking about how the process of surgery and healing would go. Dr. Olmsted did a fantastic job. When I was sitting with my son pre-surgery, I asked Dr. Olmsted how long it will take. His response was exactly what I wanted to hear. He said usually 30-45 minutes but I’m going to take my time to make sure it’s done just right. And he certainly did! It looks amazing and you can hardly tell the difference. I highly recommend Dr. Olmsted. We are so pleased with the end results.

Dr. Ridley performed surgery on in November 2021. I am 12 weeks out and I feel almost 100%. I am very thankful for his expertise and the way he took his time with me and answered all of my questions. I never felt rushed or that I was just another person with an injury. I highly, highly, recommend Dr. Ridley. You will be in great hands.

I have had lower back pain for years. I learned to live with my pain, using treatments that helped me cope. I have had several epidurals which gave me some relief from the pain, along with a variety of medications. In 2021, my back pain was the worst it has ever been. I love to garden, but found myself avoiding tasks I enjoyed to prevent flare-ups. Simple tasks like cutting the grass would be followed by two or three days of intense pain. I was miserable.
I made an appointment with Dr. Wanderman last fall. When I met him, he said that he was going to fix my back problems with surgery. Last April, my urologist informed me that the prostate cancer I had managed to fight off in 2018 had returned. Dr. Wanderman assured me that after the surgery I would live out my remaining years pain-free. I had my surgery in November 2021. It’s only been a couple months and I am happy to share that I no longer feel that miserable back pain which limited my life activities for so long. I am still on the road to recovery, but I am looking forward to getting back into my garden and yard this spring – pain free.

I loved my experience with Dr. Adam Bakker and team at TCO. I went into surgery having mixed feelings. With limited mobility due a wedding dance injury, I didn’t want that to define activities such as golf or skiing moving forward. The post-surgery recovery outcome was a little over 5 weeks and has been amazing!!! My mobility has increased two fold and my chicken wing arm has disappeared. I’m finally back to a “normal” life and this would not be the case without Dr. Bakker and his amazing skillset. The TCO team has been instrumental in providing great care pre and post-op. Laura B., in the Phys therapy department, has been helpful with range of motion exercises, flexibility, and minimization of scar tissue. It’s been a fantastic experience. Thank you TCO!

I have to say, I was skeptical about coming into TCO urgent care because I have lost faith and trust in medical facilities. I spent 8 weeks at home doctoring my injury because of this lack of trust. However, I finally decided to give TCO a try. I would like to praise TCO Burnsville Orthopedic Urgent Care for every aspect of service I received. It started with May at the front desk, who kindly helped me with my check in, to Ben who saw me to inspect the “damage”. Then to the easy going x-ray tech who made everything comfortable and to Dr. Olmsted, who assured me that I could get my old self back, and to kind Kathy in the hand therapy department. I thank each and every one of you who never judged my injury and subsequent home doctoring. Everyone was kind, positive, and reassuring. I am now on my way to healing properly. Thank you all for a wonderful experience.

In December 2021, Dr. Hoel performed major back surgery to relieve severe stenosis and to fuse L3 L4. The pain I was experiencing before the surgery was very substantial, not only in my lower back, but also down the front and back of both legs. I had difficulty doing anything and everything and was pretty much confined to my favorite chair. After surgery it was like a miracle. Over a period of about 2 weeks, all of my back and leg pain were gone. I could walk, sleep and do virtually any task pain free! Dr. Hoel accomplished everything he set out to do and more. And he did this in a very caring way, always taking the time to explain and answer my questions . I couldn’t be more satisfied than I am with my entire experience with Dr. Hoel and would very highly recommend him to anyone needing spinal care.

Dr. Arntson is very knowledgeable and he explained my hip condition to me in detail so I understood. He answered my questions thoroughly. The procedure went very well. The team helped me through my overnight stay and were extremely professional. I was never in pain and all of the at-home instructions were easy to follow. My experience has been very positive and I had excellent care. Thank you!

I have wanted to write a testimonial since it has been over a year since my surgery. We had to start off with a Zoom meeting due to the pandemic shutdown. I met with Dr. Gulli and he first thought I might have arthritis because I was able to lift my arm relatively well. However, the MRI showed I had a substantial tear. I was told by several nurses how Dr. Gulli spent a good amount of time in surgery. Within two months, I was able to flap my arms over my head. I am free of the pain that would wake me up in the middle of the night. He did an amazing job and the physical therapists were delighted at my progress in my follow-up appointments. I only had one month of physical therapy. I highly recommend Dr. Gulli!
