General Orthopaedic Services

Orthopaedic surgeons specialize in treating injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system—including your bones, ligaments, joints, muscles, tendons and nerves. In short, everything that helps you move!

At the Northwest Colorado Orthopaedic & Total Joint Center, our team restores movement, strength and function through accurate diagnoses and treatment. There’s usually more than one way to treat your concern. Sometimes simply strengthening or reengaging weak muscles through physical therapy is all it takes to feel better. Other times you can find relief through medication and various pain control methods. When disease or injury is advanced, surgery is a proven, effective solution.

Besides our specialty in total joint surgeries, we offer a variety of minor surgical solutions including arthroscopy, which allows us to view the area with a special camera to diagnose and event treat. With injury, we can also fuse or fixate broken bones with pins, plates or screws to aid healing. Our providers also specialize in sports medicine, offering a variety of solutions for sports-related injuries including ACL repair, shoulder displacement, torn muscles & ligaments and more.

Whatever your need we’ll start by getting to know you, examining the area in question and running diagnostic tests to get a full picture. Then, we’ll discuss your treatment options and help you select the solution—or combination of solutions—that work best for you.
