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.

Dr White is an exceptional Physician with a kind and thoughtful demeanor to match. I felt all my questions were answered thoroughly along with careful explanations regarding the procedure, recovery, PT, expectations and all those unknowns which comes along with surgery. He was very professional but at the same time made me feel human and listened to. Being in the medical field myself, this is not a standard attribute. From my first appointment to my last, I felt exceptionally cared for and that he genuinely had my best interests at heart. Shaun, his highly experienced PA, was also a plethora of knowledge along with a gentle and caring attitude. A shout out to his exceptional MA Candice. She was a great support helping guide me through the surgical process and handled any questions with calm and confidence. The whole team appeared to genuinely care about their patients. I couldn't have asked for a better Surgeon and his team to take care of me and highly recommend their expertise. Thank you Dr White! Kelly B

Dr. Hatzidakis did a beyond perfect job on my right shoulder replacement. He and his colleagues are welcoming, interested in what I had to say, as well as doing a superb job on my surgery and my follow-up care. I had very little pain, and the surgery eradicated the creaking I was experiencing beforehand. I am scheduling my left shoulder replacement as soon as Dr. Hatzidakis feels my right can handle it. I am 73 years old, female, and delighted I chose Western Orthopaedics for my surgeries.

I am 69 years old and had arthritis in my left shoulder for years but I could still use it and it was barely noticeable, however in the span of just 2 months it went from barely noticeable to incredibly painful with just the slightest motion. A CT scan showed significant bone loss and because of that Dr. Hatz recommended a reverse shoulder replacement. I followed all post-op instructions and had little to no post-op pain. Even the dreaded physical therapy was essentially painless and range of motion gains came quickly. Now, 7 months post-op, I have regained pretty much full range of motion, still no pain, and am going on about my life. Honestly, I don't even think much about it anymore. I still need to regain some of the muscle strength I lost but that's it and I plan to do that in the course of my normal gym workouts. The shoulder does everything I need it to do and far exceeds my expectations, given how bad it was to begin with. I truly couldn't be happier with the surgical outcome and I couldn't have picked a better and more competent doctor to do the job than Dr. Hatz.

Cortisone has helped significantly, but I'm still getting some residual pain that varies in quality and degree, and I'm not totally convinced that the cortisone can get me where I need to be for the long run. Can it, for instance, manage pain I might incur skiing? Let me know if we should have a follow-up; I know we are not yet 10 days out following the cortisone injection.

I had my surgery, reverse total shoulder, 15 YEARS ago after a massive infection. My pain before this surgery was off the roof. I have been pain free since then. The shoulder works great, has good range of motion even now. Follow up care was wonderful. As far as I am concerned, Dr. H is the greatest shoulder specialist there is.

Our family has been seeing Dr Parks for over 15 years and each of us has had a surgery by him. I replaced both knees in the past 8 months with excellent results. We consider ourselves blessed to have found such a kind and capable surgeon. Members of his staff are also excellent, and consistently report that they love working with him. If you have an opportunity to be one of Dr Parks’ patients, go for it. You won’t regret it.

I had a fabulous experience with Dr Mordick. I had carpal tunnel surgery. He spent quality time with me explaining the procedure. He‘s a very serious doctor. When he was speaking to me, I felt like I could interrupt him to ask questions. Right before the procedure, he was cracking jokes with me, and I felt so at ease. I was nervous and he didn’t seem to mind. That day he personally called my house to see how I was doing. I’m seeing him for other problems that I’m experiencing and I trust him implicitly. As a human being, I appreciated his kindness to me and I would highly recommend him.

I have been to 3 different surgeons in colorado, specializing in arthroscopic hip surgery. He is hands down the best and most efficient surgeon I have met with, he actually took more than 5 min and talked to me as a person about what was going on. I had surgery with a surgeon, that didn’t work for what I had going on, without even meeting him. Not the best way to go about it. For the first time I feel like I’m in good hands and I am excited about getting my life back!

Everyone I encountered during my time at Dr. White's office was professional, organized, and kind. Everything was very streamlined and I got all the information I needed. Dr. White and his PA were both very kind, clear, and willing to answer any questions I had. Could not be happier to be doing surgery with this group.

Dr. Hatzidakis and his team are first rate and very personable. I felt from the start that my shoulder replacement was in skilled and experienced hands. The recovery from my surgery has been very smooth and now I'm progressing nicely in PT. Huge thanks to Dr. Hatzidakis and his team, so grateful!

Dr Parks has been my Ortho since 2010 and has taken great care of my arthritic knees. His staff is SUPERB! Kimberly is prompt with returning calls and goes the extra extra mile with getting you scheduled for surgery. Dr Parks and his staff are easy to talk too and puts your mind at ease when taking care of your medical needs.

Dr. Bazaz was extremely helpful. I appreciate that he meets patients where they are in their knowledge and can translate all of the complicated and potentially stressful information in a way any patient could understand. I would recommend anyone with Orthopaedic needs to see Dr. Bazaz, as soon as possible!
