I had a shoulder surgery in October. Dr. Szalapski was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything from the first consult to the post op visits. My questions were answered and I never felt rushed at my appointments. He thoroughly explained my diagnosis, prognosis and potential treatment options. Because I was very well informed, I could choose the best treatment for me and did not encounter any surprises during or after the treatment. He didn't pressure me to have surgery, which I appreciated. The surgery and rehab went very well. My surgery scar healed beautifully. The entire staff was very professional and friendly: from clinic visits through surgery discharge. I would highly recommend his services and will return to see him for any other orthopedic problem.

Dr Szalapski performed my total knee replacement 3 years ago and my only regret was not having it done sooner. I've been pain free and able to get back into living an active life after my replacement. His staff is excellent as well. Very helpful with answering questions and scheduling visits. Dr Szalapski explained everything in terms I understood. Was always on time with my appointments and answered all my questions. I have recommended Dr Szalapski every chance I get. If I ever need another surgery, I won't hesitate to see Dr Szalapski.

I have been a patient of Dr. Szalapski for a number of years. He is incredibly knowledgeable. He has excellent diagnostic skills, exhausts all options before picking up a scalpel, is a top-notch surgeon, and has really great bedside manner. I have never felt as though I were just a number; he has always treated me as a real person, a patient. He also understands that a person's living situation has a major impact on recovery and treatment. Jessica is great, and every time I've had an emergency and needed to be seen she has managed to get me in. He replaced my knee, then did a total revision after I had a serious fall, then a second total revision after another fall where I fractured and shattered my kneecap. He did an excellent job when he removed my kneecap. I live in AZ now. I was recently in MN for a funeral, and saw Dr. Szalapski for a problem I was having, rather than going to a doctor in AZ. It was easier and quicker to get in, and the level of care was much much better. I would seriously consider -if I needed another surgery - returning to MN to have Dr. Szalapski perform the surgery. I would not hesitate to refer my family and friends to him. I trust him completely.

Dr Szalapski has done a total knee replacement on both my knees, along with a revision on the right one. I have also gone to him for issues with my thumbs. I trust him completely, as he has done a great job with my knees & is open & honest when discussing options. His Care Coordinator-Jessica, is awesome!! Absolutely love her!! Miss Joe-he was great too, but he retired a few years ago. Always a great experience when working with TCO & Dr Szalapski.

Dr. Szalapski performed a total hip replacement on me three years ago. I have two important things to say. The first is that I am very pleased with the results and thankful to him and his team for all they did to bring them about. The second thing is a word of encouragement to those going through this same experience. A large part of the success I have had is due to the exercise regimen that they gave me to restore the strength and function of my hip. At times you might not feel like following the regimen, but it really pays off.
