Orthopedic Specialists For Peak Performance

OrthoAspen delivers a personalized care experience that satisfies even the most discriminating outdoor enthusiast. Located in a ski town that is a global sporting mecca, we have orthopedic centers in Aspen and Basalt.

Aspen Orthopaedic Associates


Our board-certified team of physicians is dedicated to restoring the health of recreational and competitive athletes, adults, seniors, and children. Our orthopedic surgeons have earned world-wide acclaim for their expertise in orthopedic care. Clinical research has helped us to devise better treatment regimes, and at the same time, reduce the patient’s length of stay in the hospital. Research findings have been reported in major medical journals and at academic conferences throughout the world. In addition, physicians on our staff have traveled with elite Olympic athletes, serving as consulting physicians for U.S. teams.

Aspen Valley Hospital

Aspen Valley Hospital provides the latest technology and comprehensive patient services. With requisite diagnostic imaging technology, minimally-invasive techniques, and the Mako surgical robot for joint replacements, we are able to meet the standards of orthopedic excellence that meet or exceed that of any urban center. We understand our patients’ desire to return to an active lifestyle, so our surgeons work closely with an all-RN nursing staff and a progressive physical therapy department to get you back on your feet and on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.
