“At a major trauma center in Seattle after a severe complete knee dislocation the doctors said I was lucky to keep my leg but I would never ski again. I laughed at them and told them to get me back to Steamboat. I have been skiing over 100 days a year ever since. Thanks Eric.”

“Playing Hockey has been a great source of enjoyment for me!”
One quick and fateful collision on the ice and I found myself wondering if that enjoyment could continue. From the very beginning, meeting with the Great Team of Professionals at Orthopaedics of Steamboat Springs, P.C. quickly eased my concerns and made a profound difference in my treatment outcome!

“I am claustrophobic and had previously rubbed my shoulders on the enclosure in the other MRI machines.”
The experience in the Orthopaedics of Steamboat Springs, P.C. extremity MRI was awesome, incredibly comfortable and the image quality was great. I did not need to be sedated to undergo the scan, I received a next day appointment, it was covered by my insurance plan, their MRI has received the American College of Radiology Accreditation which is the gold standard for quality, this is all huge for me, and for everyone else for that matter.
