Twin Cities Orthopedics opens new Stillwater clinic and sports performance facility

Nearly a year after breaking ground across the street from Stillwater Area High School, Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) has officially opened its highly-anticipated clinic and sports performance facility in Oak Park Heights. The new TCO location’s expanded services and modern accommodations will make the Stillwater area a premier destination for world-class orthopedic care, rehabilitation, and athletic performance.

In addition to an orthopedic clinic, the facility offers physical therapy, hand therapy, advanced MRI scanners, and walk-in orthopedic urgent care from 8am to 8pm daily.

“Many people don’t know this, but TCO is owned and led by its physicians, so a major development project like this speaks volumes to our physicians’ commitment to the Stillwater and Oak Park Heights area,” said Tara Loucks, TCO Vice President of Clinic Services. “We’ve been a part of this community for decades, and are excited to deepen our roots and serve the next generations of local families.”

Sports performance amenities at TCO Stillwater include 8,000 square feet of athletic turf and training space, incline ramp, batting cage, basketball court, and weight room, serving athletes and active adults of all ages and abilities.

“We’re seeing demand continue to rise for high-quality sports performance services,” said TCO’s CEO, Aaron Johnson. “This area is booming with young athletes and active adults, which is why we made sure to carve out space appropriate for the specialized training and injury prevention that today’s athletes expect. Maybe if a place like this existed when I was growing up, my hockey career would’ve lasted a little longer.”


To celebrate the beginning of this new chapter, TCO is showcasing real local patients who volunteered to share their personal journeys in hopes of motivating and inspiring others who may face similar obstacles.
