  • What others are saying:
    Mike is an excellent therapist who knows every patient’s history and treatment without even looking in the charts. He is experienced in treating a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Mike is also an athletic trainer and is very active and visible in the Stillwater community. He has an amazing ability to multi-task and is a “glass is always half full” kind of guy.
  • What patients are saying:
    "I wanted to thank you and Linda for all your help, patience and guidance with my physical therapy for my ACL replacement. You were so positive and encouraging and it made a big difference. I was able to be on skis the past two weekends to officiate at ski races. It was a great feeling to be “on the snow” again!"
    "Mike Ripley and his OSI staff in Stillwater have been putting me back together for years! Together we have worked on my back issues, elbow issues, shoulder issues, achilles tendon repair, a motorcycle accident, two total hip replacements and most recently a total knee replacement. I kid him that he is equal parts physical therapist, motivator and psychiatrist-and does them all well. I always enjoy going to OSI and being part of their unique blend of personal attention and open banter in the PT gym. Since I believe that laughter helps the healing process-it certainly has worked for me. I am actually sorry to see these current sessions end-but am quite sure that I will see you again soon for my next PT/motivation/psychiatry needs."
