We hope to see you at the AVH Health Fair for a free orthopedic screening.
At OrthoAspen, our Colorado roots run deep. We’re invested in our community, which is why we have dedicated our practice to providing top orthopedic care within our local region.
And it’s why our orthopedic providers will be proudly participating in the Aspen Valley Hospital Health Fair this June.
Aspen Valley Hospital Health Fair: June 7, 9 and 10
Aspen Valley Hospital will offer three days of health screenings, public health education and major savings this June. And OrthoAspen will be a part of the action.

The Aspen Valley Hospital Health Fair will be held on Thursday, June 7 at Aspen Valley Hospital; Saturday, June 9 at the El Jebel Community Center; and Sunday, June 10 at Aspen Valley Hospital.
Aspen Valley Hospital is located at 0401 Castle Creek Road in Aspen, CO; and the El Jebel Community Center at 20 Eagle County Road in El Jebel, CO.
- Featured Services:
All three days of the fair (Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) will feature blood draws at significantly reduced prices. The biggest day of the fair, Sunday, June 10, will feature additional free health screenings and information stations. Free screenings include air flow and oximetry; dental health screenings; blood pressure screenings; eye pressure and vision exams with Dr. Michael Murphy; height, weight and body mass index checks; skin cancer screenings with Dr. Carl Schiller; oral cancer screenings with Dr. Heather Murphy; and orthopedic screenings. Free chair massages will also be offered. Information stations will feature important health related programs throughout the hospital and health-focused organizations throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.
Community members who are interested in the blood draws are advised to schedule appointments (walk-ins are also welcome). Those who are interested in undergoing the free screenings during the Sunday Health Fair should arrive at least one hour before closing to ensure adequate time.
Special Health Fair Screenings from Our Orthopedic Providers
On Sunday, June 10, OrthoAspen will provide orthopedic screenings. Two of our orthopedic specialists will be onsite to screen orthopedic concerns and answer questions.
- Stanley Gertzbein, MD, will provide back screenings. Dr. Gertzbein is a Conservative Care Spine Specialist, with 40 years of extensive experience treating both common spinal issues and complex disorders.
- Dan Greene, PA-C, will be providing general orthopedic screenings for Health Fair attendees. Greene has experience working in sports medicine, orthopedic trauma and adult joint reconstruction. He completed his Physician Assistant training at Kettering College of Medical Arts and has additionally served with the U.S. Navy SEALs.
Screenings are a key element of preventive health care. Our orthopedic providers can identify potential issues that you may be at heightened risk of developing and prescribe lifestyle alterations and preventive measures you can take to avoid the emergence of injuries or chronic conditions. The identification of early-stage orthopedic conditions, such as osteoarthritis, can also help you to avoid the need for surgery or invasive treatments. The sooner an injury or degenerative condition is identified, the more effectively it can be treated using conservative methods such as physical therapy.
OrthoAspen is excited for this opportunity to give back to the Aspen community. We hope to see you at the Health Fair! If you have any questions about this event or care at OrthoAspen, feel free to contact us.
See You at the Health Fair!
