I am super happy with Dr. Holte! I had disk herniation surgery at 15 with him and continued to play contact sports until I was reinjured at age 33. Both surgeries I bounced back with no pain afterwards. Dr. Holte and his staff were extremely accommodating and even worked around my tight travel schedule. My aunts and grandmother have also been operated on by Dr. Holte and we consider him our FAMILY doctor with much love, as he has taken care of all of us through the years.

Very pleased with the experience - I requested an appointment online and Wendy called me later that morning - I had a consultation later that week and surgery (L5-S1 discectomy) the following Friday - for the two months prior to surgery I wasn't able to walk more than 10 feet without pain radiating down my leg - steroid injections did nothing - after the outpatient surgery I walked out of the hospital with minimal to no pain and was back to limited work by Monday - Thank you Dr Holte and staff

Dr. Hole is an excellent doctor. My surgery experience was quite difficult with blood clots and hematomas. He spent extra time with me with phone calls and concern. I felt a heartfelt concern on his part.

Compression fractured spine. He did not tell me there was an option to restore my injury and said it will just heal. (thats just like breaking a leg and not putting screws in to hold it and possibly suffer greater damage later on). He did not provide me with any information besides that surgery is not an option. No explanation of anything of how my disks and vertebrae would be affectec down the road. I had to find out on my own.
Dear Healthgrades Guest, We sincerely apologize for the experience you had with Dr. Holte. Your feedback provides us an opportunity to review our processes. Also, there are many variables to compression fracture conditions. We would appreciate the chance to discuss this matter further with you. If interested, please contact us directly at 952 456-7138. Sincerely, Twin Cities Orthopedics
