Advanced upper extremity care

Some upper extremity conditions require advanced treatment and technology. For conditions such as limb-threatening disorders, bone cancers or childhood orthopedic problems, we refer you to our network which includes oncologists, radiologists, surgeons and pediatric orthopedic specialists.

Limb preservation

Our limb preservation experts are fellowship-trained physicians who provide care for many joint- or limb-threatening conditions, including bone cancers. We also work with local partners to effectively treat more complex limb preservation issues. For conditions such as bone tumors, soft tissue sarcomas, bone infections or blood flow issues, we can refer you to our partners at Colorado Limb Consultants.

Pediatric hand and upper extremity care

Our team of pediatric orthopedic specialists are specially trained to treat your child's bone issues while considering their growing musculoskeletal system. We're skilled in handling everything from basic broken bones to complex UCL tears.

Shoulder replacement surgery

Our physicians consider shoulder joint replacement surgery as a last resort if you live with lingering shoulder pain and nonsurgical options were unsuccessful. Replacement surgeries include outpatient procedures and minimally invasive procedures that may involve a short hospital stay. We work together with you and your personal doctor to plan a treatment plan that leads to a swift recovery.
