Bone & Joint Center for Orthopedics

1400 S. Potomac   Suite 115 Aurora CO 303 360-6003



At the Bone and Joint Center, we are committed to providing the best quality of orthopedic care in Colorado. After 35 years of continuous practice in orthopedic surgery and performing over 10,000 successful orthopedic surgical procedures, I have closed the surgical discipline of my practice and now offer office-based non-surgical orthopedic care. We are committed to providing the best quality of non-surgical orthopedic care in Colorado, serving the Denver Metro area, which includes Aurora, Parker, Centennial, Arvada, Thornton, Longmont, Northglenn, Boulder, and surrounding areas.

We diagnose and treat a wide variety or orthopedic (bone and joint) conditions including auto accident injuries, Workman's Compensation cases (on-the-job injuries), sports injuries, slip-and-fall (liability) injuries, sprains, strains, muscle spasms, tendonitis, bursitis, painful/arthritic/swollen joints, and nerve compression conditions including carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, herniated discs, and cubital tunnel syndrome.

In-office procedures include knee injections using viscosupplement medication, for knee arthritis. We may offer cortisone injections to a variety of anatomic sites, as indicated. We treat acute and chronic low back pain, with or without acute or chronic radiculopathy, and may perform paraspinal trigger point injections for neck, thoracic, and low back pain, as well as injections in the areas of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle, and foot, based upon our clinical diagnosis. These injections are usually performed using a combination of cortisone/steroid medication and a local anesthetic.

We offer objective second opinions for surgeries proposed elsewhere; we feel our second opinions are non-biased, as I have closed the surgical aspect of my practice, yet have the experience to determine whether surgery is indicated. I feel that everyone who has questions and contemplates having elective orthopedic surgery should have a second opinion; these second opinions often provide the concerned patient, and their family, with peace of mind.

As a medical provider and doctor of osteopathic medicine, my treatment philosophy encompasses the osteopathic approach to medicine and orthopedics. I consider the whole patient, not just the musculoskeletal lesion, and we will refer to other providers when appropriate. My 35 years of service in orthopedic surgery has allowed me to appreciate a wide variety of clinical experience, training me as an orthopedic diagnostician. My pledge to my patients is to provide honest and objective opinions and to deliver the best orthopedic service possible.
