Dr. Basaz was able to repair a shoulder that had been seriously in 2013 by and impact that gore and detached the three rotator cuff tendons. He advised me to take care to not injure the shoulder again because there was not much tendon left to work with. I re-injured it skiing in spring 2022 and tried letting it rest getting back on a PT plan. An MRI showed that I had torn and detached two of the previously repaired major tendons. Initially it did not like it could be repaired and might requires reverse shoulder replacement at some future date. He decided try a second repair and was able to recover enough viable retracted tendon to do so. The repair has a good chance of healing to the bone and preclude or delay replacement. I’ve had four rotator cuff repairs with Hinson e 2010 as a result of vigor thrill seeking. At 70 yers old I’m convinced he master of his craft, genius in fact! He is great man, fine athlete in his own right and maintains awesome enthusiasm for repairing shoulders as well as other joints.

The entire office staff was very efficient and courteous. I got in without having to wait a long time. Dr Baran was very knowledgeable and spoke to me, not down to me.

After 20 years of living with a torn rotator cuff, and being able to sleep the night through, I committed to surgery to repair the shoulder. The first thing discussed after surgery was how inflamed the joint and surrounding tissue was. Not really a surprise. Dr Hatzidakis was fairly adamant about following the protocol for recovery, planned for 9 months. I just am passing 7 months and the shoulder has healed. The staff at WO is efficient and highly competent. You can trust WO for your care.

Dr. Parks is an awesome doctor. He has done total replacements on both of my knees. The left one 5 years ago, the right one this October. I have had no problems with either operation. I am recovering even faster this time. One of the things that impressed me greatly is that when I called to ask questions after surgery, he, personally, called me back to answer my questions. He did not have an assistant or a nurse call me. He called me. I appreciated that so much. I would highly recommend Dr. Parks. I would give him 10 stars if I could!

I had right hip replacement surgery anterior method. The instructions I got in advance were complete and I learned from friends who had the same surgery. I judge my experience by how well I am recovering. Surgery was 3 weeks ago and I'm walking 3000 steps a day, now aided outdoors with trekking poles and indoors generally unaided.

Appointment started on time; assessment was quick and discussion with Shawn Karn (PA) and Dr. White were exceptionally informative and all my questions at the time were answered. The only reason that I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was that so much information was shared so quickly, and both Shawn and Dr. White talked fast, that I wish I had thought to take notes as I struggle to remember it all. Overall, Dr. White and his team presented as very caring, which I greatly appreciated.

I have been an athlete and skier since a young age. I am now 53. In April of this year I tore my hip labrum in two places while backcountry skiing. I have been living with constant and significant hip pain since then. I recently mentioned my hip injury to a couple of local friends in Southwestern Colorado. My friends referred me to Dr. White to have my hip evaluated. Surgery was recommended by Dr. White and his team and he performed Labral Reconstruction surgery on my hip just two weeks ago. My hip already feels better. More importantly I have never met such an amazing physician who genuinely cares about his patients well being. In fact, yesterday Dr. White called me on a Saturday to check in with me and see how I was feeling. If you need hip surgery I would highly recommend Dr. White and his team. I would also like to thank Sean (P.A.), Donna and Candice for being so amazing throughout the process.

Surgery is never easy! Dr. White is an incredible surgeon who has taken impeccable care of me!! The biggest shoutout to his office team of ladies that not only are professional, but are genuinely kind. On one of my darkest days, Teresa was so lovely and understanding. Candice was so efficient on getting me scheduled urgently, and Donna always accommodates me when scheduling follow-up appointments. Then there’s Shawn who is just the nicest guy! These folks work hard to keep a busy practice running smoothly!!

After putting surgery off because I was scared, I had almost no mobility in my left shoulder. The arthritis was so bad I could not sleep. I was 40 then, local Dr. told me if they did it I would need to take up crocheting due to plastic on plastic 10yr life span. I was referred to Western orthopedic. Where I talked with Dr. Hatzidakis, he was amazing. A full left shoulder replacement. A year after surgery I was able to have full range of motion two years after surgery I was a raft guide on the Animas river. Rowing boats! Today I am still very active and pain free.

I was a bit early for my appointment. Never the less I was taken right back and processed in by the PA. I had x-rays done and was ready to see the doctor right on time

I had surgery with Dr White yesterday morning. He spent a decent amount of time explaining the game plan and made me feel like we were doing this 'together'. He is the first medical doctor that I've ever seen get truly outraged on a spiritual level at the inequity of our healthcare system. This man has made me cry every time I see him, but only the most beautiful tears of gratitude. His number one mission for me was to ease the pain I have lived with all my life and nothing less than perfect would do. Of course I still have pain from the operation, but I can say for the first time that the pain I've had in my right hip every day of my life is gone. It's just gone. I have a PAO coming up with a colleague of Dr. White's which he will be assisting on, and then the same labral reconstruction on the left hip about 6 months later. I have been told my hips were "pristine" on x ray by one of the top docs in Colorado. I've had my pain boiled down to "anxiety" and even conversion disorder. Dr. White was so determined to help me heal; not just physically but emotionally and spiritually, that this morning before his first surgery of the day he came to my room with a thumb drive video of my operation from beginning to end, pictures of my poor hip and disappearing labrum, and the incredible afters of the new teres ligmentus and labral allografts he did. He showed me the way he reshaped my femur head to fit perfectly into the socket. He wrote little notes next to the picture and at the end, a little note that made me cry....again. He said, "Courtney, I hope this and th ganz give you a hip you can trust in the future." Dr. White is the single most compassionate doc I've ever met. He is familiar with my disease (ehlers-danlos) and has pioneered methods of stabilizing the hip joint that are pure genius. Above all, he is a good man. with a heart of gold. He has already done something for me that no one else ever could. He validated my pain. He showed me the pictures that proved I wasn't a hypochondriac. He told me he was sorry I suffered for so long. He gave me dignity and respect. He looks me in the eye and tells me that my pain is valid and that he can help. I had been so helpless and hopeless for so long. I had been forcing myself to live in a suicidal amount of pain for everyone but myself. I was told I couldn't be helped. Brian basically begged me to get imaging done. He promised we'd see my pain. He could prove it. Seeing him was my last resort. I was ready to leave this Earth and my beautiful, precious babies because of the amount of pain I was in. It's terrifying when the pain gets so bad that even the greatest gifts on God's Green Earth aren't enough to make you stay. I know in my heart of hearts that Dr. White could see this all over my face at our first meeting. He saved my life. I know I have a long road, but no one else would help me. No one would even look. He absolutely saved my life.
