I had surgery to repair ligament damage in my right thumb in December 2017 and as of April 2018, I am fully recovered and back to normal life activities. Dr. Bakker and his team are THE BEST! Without them I would not be where I am today in my recovery. The whole team was professional, courteous and extremely helpful throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Dr. Bakker to anyone who is in need of a Hand Care doctor. You will not find a better doctor to put your trust in. A huge thank you to Dr. Bakker, Jenna, Becky and a cast of others for their first class service and care!!

I’d just like to say, that I received the most excellent care from everybody, and I truly believe that due to the level of care I received, I will be able to fully recover to 100%. Dr. Bakker – you have a great team, and I feel very lucky that I just happened to get your team to help me out. Thanks so much.

Dr. Bakker was fantastic. I had been in pain for more than 10 years. Dr. Bakker got me in for both carpal tunnel surgeries very quickly. HE (not his nurse) called the day after each surgery to see how I was doing. I recommended him to a friend, and he went right in and now is pain free just like me.  Dr. Bakker is a fabulous doctor and I appreciate how he cares for his patients.  I would highly recommend him to everyone having any hand/arm pain.

Dr. Bakker is an amazingly skilled surgeon. He restored function to my right thumb, after not having a functioning thumb for 42 years! He is also a very personable doctor, which is sometimes not so common among orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Bakker is the only doctor in the world that I would go to for any upper extremity procedure.

I have been coming to TCO for my care and surgeries since 2001 and in addition, my ex-husband came here for 12 surgeries with various doctors. Dealing with different doctors and their respective care teams has made me appreciate Dr. McCarthy and her care team. Claire, her PA, Bonnie and Sue (hand therapists) and her care coordinator Susan are all fabulous! Susan is by far the best care coordinator I have worked with. Even though there are clinics closer to me, I choose to come to the TCO Edina clinic because of Dr. McCarthy and her team. I have referred many of my fellow colleagues and friends to Dr. McCarthy. I have even referred a stranger to her! If Dr. McCarthy is ever running behind, I tell people – wait, she is worth it! I am very, very happy with the care I have received here at TCO. I want to thank Dr. McCarthy and TCO for the great care they have given me.

I’ve had three hand surgeries with Dr. Fischer. He is THE hand guy in MN. Transplants in both thumbs due to arthritis and trigger finger surgery in two fingers. This man is talented. The arthritis in my thumbs hurt so bad I couldn’t sleep. So, I decided to have the transplant surgery. Recovery took about a month. Eight years later, my thumbs are still perfect…no pain…I can do everything I want to do again. If you need this type of surgery, don’t be afraid. Recovery is quick and results are perfect. Dr. Fischer is the right guy to do this.

I am a prime example of Dr. Szalapski’s excellent surgical skills, treatment and how well he replaced my right hip. He has also successfully surgically repaired my trigger index finger on my right hand. In addition, he is keeping my knee out of trouble because of arthritis. I am very happy with Dr. Szalapski and I give him and his staff the highest rating one can receive in his field of medicine.

I brought my daughter in yesterday to the Edina walk-in clinic for an injured hand/wrist. It was such a great experience. I appreciate being able to take her there instead of a dirty, influenza infested urgent care. The clinic was clean and the staff was very kind. The x-ray techs were so great with my 4-year-old and got the x-ray done quickly.

I had an amazing experience at TCO! Dr. McCarthy went above and beyond by operating intricately around my tattoo with precision and perfection leading to a fantastic result!

Thanks TCO and Dr. McCarthy for everything! I will always refer others here!

Dr. Gesensway is an outstanding orthopedic hand surgeon.  I had been experiencing pain in my hands and numbness in my arms, becoming progressively worse.  He spent time with me prior to surgery, evaluating my symptoms and determining the need for not only the carpal tunnel release, but also the lacertus fibrosus release (specifically for the arm numbness and thumb weakness).  I had both surgeries performed (4 months apart) and received IMMEDIATE POSTOPERATIVE RELIEF (in the OR) of the numbness and weakness. Dr. Gesensway is an outstanding physician, highly skilled and knowledgeable, with great bedside manner.  I would recommend his care highly.
