Marie D.

I had a total knee replacement in September 2016 by Dr. Panek in the Excel program at TCO in Oakdale. I cannot say enough great things about my experience. Form the first consult, through the surgery and aftercare, the care was exceptional and my surgery and recovery was smooth and swift. Dr. Panek was a great listener and his positive demeanor and skill as a surgeon put me at ease. The Excel program allowed me to stay in this quiet and peaceful setting, with a nurse that was fully available around the clock to assist me in a quick recovery. I was able to go home in two days. I continued my recovery by receiving exceptional personalized physical therapy at TCO’s PT clinic in Stillwater. I believe I recovered quicker with this program and I highly recommend Dr. TJ Panek and the Excel program for anyone considering a knee replacement.
