COVID-19 Guidelines

CU Doctors are here for you!
Our clinics are open and able to serve you during this time for urgent in-person visits as well as virtual health services. Please call our clinics directly to schedule an appointment for both in person and virtual health.

Our number one priority is the health and safety of our patients, their family members, as well as our health care team. To honor this commitment we have implemented the following procedures:

  • Non-urgent medical appointments should be converted to telehealth visits or rescheduled if telehealth is not feasible.
  • Please bring your own face mask or covering to wear. Patients checking in must tell staff if they have: A fever, cold symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath); Flu symptoms (fever, chills, body aches, etc.).
  • Adult patients may be allowed one asymptomatic person (at least 17 years old) for support; however, we reserve the right to deem a support person unnecessary at any time.
  • Pediatric patients may be allowed one asymptomatic adult (i.e. parent, guardian) for support.
  • For pediatric patients, please check the Children's Hospital Colorado website for updated COVID-19 related patient information.

Please call us about your current health care concerns. Please take care in following current public health guidelines. Please visit the Colorado COVID-19 website, for more information.

Thank you for doing your part to help keep everyone safe and healthy!

Clinical Interest for Patients
I enjoy the diversity of hand surgery, managing conditions from the elbow to the fingertips. I have particular interests in brachial plexus and peripheral nerve repair and reconstruction, targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR), compression neuropathies, tendon injuries, Dupuytren’s contracture, and hand & wrist injuries. I have an extensive background caring for athletes at all levels, including youth and college teams, professional athletes, athletes at two Olympic Games and the weekend warrior.

Care Philosophy
Each patient and his or her condition is unique and I strive to ensure that the evaluation and treatment process is both engaging and educational for patients and their families. I am fortunate to be able to collaborate with colleagues from many disciplines - including orthopaedic surgery, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, neurology, oncology, pain management, hand / occupational / physical therapy - to provide the most comprehensive care possible for our patients.

Personal Interests
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three daughters – pursuing activities such as golf, tennis, biking, sailing and skiing. I am excited to go to work each day as a rest from keeping up with my family!

Volunteer Activities
Since 2014 I have served as the team leader for Touching Hands (American Society for Surgery of the Hand) in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, coordinating outreach trips to the Ruth Paz Hospital twice each year. Also, I have been fortunate to have been a site physician for two Olympic Games: Athens, 2004 (Men's Basketball) and Vancouver, 2010 (Men's Ice Hockey).

Public Speaking
Yes
I enjoy participating in numerous educational events through our various medical / surgical societies, industry, and educational organizations.
