Dr. Wojtkowski graduated with honors from Stanford University with a BS in biology, after which she continued at Stanford studying heat shock proteins and their relationship with type one diabetes. From there, Dr. Wojtkowski moved on to the University of Washington for her medical training, where she also completed her orthopedic residency.
Within the residency, Dr. Wojtkowski did extensive orthopedic trauma training at Harborview Medical Center, a world-renowned orthopedic trauma center which draws patients from Alaska, Washington, Idaho and Montana. Practicing in Hawaii, North Carolina, Washington and Colorado since, she has focused on care of the hip and orthopedic trauma/injury care.
Dr. Wojtkowski’s care philosophy is to listen first and join in a partnership with her patients to decide whether their injury or issue is best treated surgically or nonsurgically based on all facets of the patient’s life situation, needs and future goals. Dr. Wojtkowski gives patients all the pros and cons to treatments of their particular issue so they can make a treatment decision that is right for them.
Dr. Wojtkowski and her husband (who is also an orthopedic surgeon) have four children with whom she enjoys reading, hiking and the outdoors. A former alpine ski racer, Dr. Wojtkowski enjoys all activities the Aspen area has to offer.
