What makes this group of orthopedic surgeons the “Premier” group in southern Colorado? How about education and training at some of the country’s most prestigious universities? How about fellowship training and specialization in sports medicine, complex knee and shoulder problems, joint replacement, arthroscopy, and hand and foot disorders? How about 100% board certification from the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery?

Our physicians have over 75 years of combined surgical experience and have been on the cutting edge of the latest techniques and technologies. The doctors at Premier were the first in southern Colorado to perform arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs, carticel cartilage transplants, and total ankle replacements. They continue to educate and teach America’s next generation of physicians.

All of this expertise is available to you from a team of physicians who love what they do, are committed to our local community, and treat each patient with individual commitment and world class care.
