The standard definition of an orthopedic surgeon refers to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles.
The definition of an OrthoAspen orthopedic specialist: A world-class physician trained in sub-specialty care, who provides each patient with expert, integrated and comprehensive care of the musculoskeletal system.
State-of-the-art technology and equipment, board-certified physicians, elite specializations for particular orthopedic needs and an emphasis on patient education are generally only found in major metropolitan areas. At OrthoAspen, however, you can receive all these benefits close to home.
In addition to treating active sports enthusiasts and clients from Vail, Basalt, Glenwood, Carbondale, Rifle and Junction, our very own orthopedic specialists share many of the same love of local sports and activities. We understand how important it is to provide conservative treatment options that encourage a return to an active lifestyle—safely and effectively.
What Makes an OrthoAspen Orthopedic Specialist Unique?
When patients look up “orthopedic doctor near me,” they typically want to know where they can be treated with innovative technology and evidenced-based treatment approaches. They also want to know they’re consulting with an orthopedic practice with the highest reputation and standards in safety and comfort.
These attributes and more are part of what makes OrthoAspen unique. When you receive care from a highly skilled OrthoAspen orthopedic specialist, you witness firsthand how our balance of specialization and comprehensive care is the foundation of our treatment philosophy.
Take a look at five ways our orthopedic specialists rise above the competition:
- Advanced Methods and Tools
Our physicians are trained in the latest orthopedic methods and are equipped with highly advanced tools and technology. This includes requisite diagnostic imaging, minimally-invasive techniques and Mako surgeon-controlled, robotic arm-assisted surgery.
- Skilled Sports Medicine Physicians (with Athletic Experience)
Aspen is a popular area for athletic activity and a large portion of our patients are athletes. As a practice, we specialize in sports medicine; but our specialization isn’t simply academic. Many of our physicians are accomplished athletes, offering patients a better understanding of athletic needs and priorities.
- Regenerative Medicine (Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments)
Our orthopedic specialists are proud to offer platelet-rich plasma treatments. This highly advanced treatment method enhances the healing of musculoskeletal tissues and is of particular interest for injured athletes. It’s also an increasingly desirable conservative treatment approach and alternative to surgery for many orthopedic patients.
- Thorough and Helpful Patient Education
At OrthoAspen, we are committed to practicing injury prevention and encouraging orthopedic health within our community and beyond. Patients need simply access our blog for countless resources on orthopedic topics, from ACL surgery and how to ease foot pain to frozen shoulder symptoms and more.
- Strategic Partnership with a Number-One Ranked Hospital
OrthoAspen recently formed a strategic partnership with Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), ranked number one in the U.S for Orthopedics (nine years running), by U.S. News & World Report. This partnership benefits Aspen-area residents with even more orthopedic care benefits by integrating cutting edge research, HSS standards and protocols in addition to shared programming on musculoskeletal health.
