Dr Baran provided a knowledgeable and straightforward assessment of my situation in a caring way that lets me know we are on the same page for treatment outcomes.

On 12/8/21 Dr. Hatzidakis performed a total shoulder reversal, and proximal bicep tendon repair. I've waited a while to post this feedback because I wanted to put some wear and tear on the shoulder. I was 53 when the surgery took place and I'm 55 now. I went in with pretty much every rotator cuff tendon gone beyond repair, in addition to the bicep tendon tear. You know you've done a good job when Dr. Hatzidakis congratulates you on a job well done. All I can say is I was in pain daily, I made pain my ally for as long as I could. To now be pain free I can't say enough about how Thankful I am to Dr. Hatz and his staff! I would let him do my right shoulder tomorrow if he asked. I was given an incredable amount of infromation pre and post surgery, every question was answered in detail. Dr. Hatz is referred to as the best shoulder guy for a reason! When it comes to post op my advise is that you follow his instruction. Once I started physical therapy I did my stretching exercises 5-7 days a week. Once I could start resistance therapy I bought some bands to use at home. To this day I still stretch and perform focused exercises to build strenght and flexation. Dr. Hatz gave me my arm back, I can't express the amount of gratitude I have for him and his team.

I am writing to express how pleased, in fact, thrilled with Dr. Hatzidakis and his team! I recently had 2 very complicated and involved right shoulder surgeries to reconstruct this joint. The first surgery, August 13, 2022, involved doing a bone graft to improve the integrity of my right scapula. It also involved implanting humeral (ball) component of the reverse shoulder replacement. The second, February 13, 2023, involved implanting the glenoid (cup) component. I am thrilled to report at 14 months post both surgeries I am doing phenomenally well!. I have nearly full range of motion, no pain/no swelling, and have regained nearly 80% of my muscle strength compared to pre surgery levels. In short, Dr. Hatz and his Team are terrific! As far as I am concerned, Dr. Hatz and his team are the best kept orthopedic secret in Denver, possibly, the entire US. Dr. Hatz is a superb orthopedic surgeon. He is clearly focused on achieving the best possible surgical outcome. He has terrific bedside manner, listens to his patients' concerns, exudes reassuring confidence, and has a wonderful pleasant and friendly manner. I also am certain I would not have gotten the surgical results I received without Dr. Hatz' dedicated Team. PA s, Rose Christensen and Tyler Holm and MS s Dianna, Ty, and Hunter all are reliable, knowledgeable, and professional. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Hatz and his Team. I recommend this practice to you without reservation. Scott R. Golden

Out of blue, I had a serious and painful cervical spine injury. I was given Dr. Eby’s name, thank goodness! My husband and I were able to meet with Dr. Eby before surgery. Despite the fact that he is very busy, he took the time to prepare us for what this procedure looked like before and after. We appreciated this, it certainly helped us get organized. Post op, he has been available to answer questions and offer support for any concerns. I will recommend Dr.Eby to anyone with spine issues. For me, he is the best!!

My appointment with Dr. Baran was a five-star experience. I found Dr. Baran to be affable, informative, and professional. I was in and out in 45 minutes which included x-rays. I strongly recommend Western Orthopedics for orthopedic care.

I had a distal bicep tendon rupture that needed surgical repair. The E.R. staff recommended Western Ortho and they were able to see me on short notice. I couldn't be more grateful that I lucked into Dr. Sears and his team. Dr. Sears has been incredible through my surgery and recovery. His knowledge, skill, and experience gave me peace of mind throughout the process. He's taken the time to get to know me and has been very attentive to my progress in healing. I highly recommend him and Western Orthopaedics to anyone in need. Thanks Dr. Sears!

I am an 83 year-old woman who recently had a hip replacement performed by Dr. Baran. It was a procedure I put off for years from fear; I could not have been more wrong. I think now of the years I walked in pain that could have been corrected. Dr. Baran's personal style is warm, friendly, personable, and professional. He and his staff accommodated events that were unfolding in my personal life and provided comfort and assurance through the whole process. The pain that I feared only lasted about ten days as the incision healed and was minor compared to what I had been living with for years. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Baran and his total team for giving me a pain-free later life. The nurses in the recovery ward were also sweet and caring - above and beyond what was necessary for my care. They were genuinely interested in and seemed to enjoy hearing of my unusual life.

I was in extreme shoulder pain. My rotator cuff was completely torn. I had several injections that provided relief over the past year. Dr. Hatzidakis told me I would know when I was ready for a replacement. He was never pushing. I opted for surgery on February 28, 2023 and I am so pleased with the outcome. Wearing the sling for six weeks was certainly a "pain", but I have been pain free for weeks and gaining range of motion each day. Dr. Hatzidakis always took time to explain everything and answer questions. His bedside manner is great and I have every confidence in his as a surgeon!

My Primary Care Physician recommended that I see Dr. Hatzidakis for a possible rotator cuff tear in August of 2022. I am very glad that I took his recommendation. I recommend Dr. Hatzidakis and his team (Rose Christensen, Tyler Holmes, and Cherilyn Jacobsen) very highly. They are all terrific. From my first evaluation by Rose, through my follow-up meetings with Dr. Hatizdakis, the surgery in November, 2022, and my follow-up appointments during recovery everyone has been warm, engaging, informative and above all helpful. Everyone I have ever communicated with at this practice is very patient-centered and helpful. I was told by many friends who have had rotator cuff repair surgery to expect a painful recovery for the first week or more. Since I had multiple tears to be repaired I was concerned. However, I did NOT have the bad experience that others warned me about. Quite to the contrary I found my pain well-controlled at all times and I was off the opioids within a few days after surgery. In addition, the Physical Therapy performed by Melissa in the office across the hall from Dr. Hatzidakis' suite has been superb. My strength, range of motion and use of the shoulder are fabulous given that I'm only about 4 months out from my surgery date. I am delighted with my progress! In summary, if you are considering having rotator cuff surgery, I would wholeheartedly recommend that you see Dr. Hatzidakis and his team.

I was fortunate to link up with Dr Parks at the beginning of my cycle of four leg joint replacements over the last year. He has a very efficient system that nevertheless feels personal and relaxed, thanks to his confident manner and friendly staff. His affirming “We’ll take good care of you” style is immediately assuring. Quality control is primary; he insists on pre- and post-op procedures that maximize successful results. No infections or call-backs for me. He’s obviously brilliant and his reputation among PT provides I’ve used is the highest.

I have had the opportunity of having two rotator cuff surgeries (right and left shoulders) done by Dr. Hatzidakis. One was done in 2007 and the other in 2014. He had stressed pre-surgery that if I followed my physical therapy post-op, I would have the best range of motion the joint would allow. He was absolutely right! I appreciate his bedside manner, as he does a phenomenal job of taking an extremely complicated procedure/process and puts it into terms anyone can understand. Follow-up care is simply outstanding and second to none. What most recently impressed me is that 9 years after my latest surgery, he still remembered me and asked about my condition! That truly is 5-star care!!! Quite simply, as long as Dr. Hatzidakis is practicing and doing shoulder surgeries, no one but him and the staff at Western Orthopedics will touch my shoulders when repair/replacement is needed. Period.

Dr. White is an amazing surgeon! He genuinely cares, he is open, and honest, spends time with you explaining things and answering your questions. I am a repeat patient! He has done labral reconstructions on both of my hips, walking me through each step of the process. His whole team is great from scheduling with Teresa to the whole team behind surgery and recovery. They work with some great physical therapists that really know their stuff and make you feel like you will get better. AND you do! Hard work and dedication to your healing process with people supporting and encouraging you along the way. Dr. White was willing to work on my hip after it had already been operated on and for that I am so grateful. 8 years later, we did my other hip because I knew the results would be worth it! I was able to get in touch with my donor's mom to thank her for the gift of her son's life and I got to tell her all that I am now able to do because of his gift! That was super special! I trust Dr. White and recommend him to anyone that has any sort of hip pain as your number one choice! Thank you Dr. White, your family, and your team! I am GRATEFUL!

Dr Hatzidakis was great. Performed a right shoulder replacement in August. His staff and himself are very professional and caring . Surgery went great and follow up care was excellent.
