Foot & Ankle

The human foot combines complexity and strength and literally grounds us. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. These steps cover several miles and add up to 115,000 miles in a lifetime – more than four times the circumference of the globe! The ankle provides foundation and acts as a shock absorber, as well as a mechanism for propulsion.

Are painful problems with your feet or ankles slowing you down? At Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group our foot and ankle expert focuses on nothing but helping people overcome foot and ankle problems utilizing the latest options in non-surgical and surgical care.

Treatment for orthopedic conditions is highly individualized, but we always start with the most conservative options. However, some injuries must be treated surgically before proper healing can take place. If you need quick relief from an injury, long-term relief from chronic pain, fracture care, or orthopedic surgery, CSOG is proud to offer world-class care for patients in Colorado Springs and the surrounding communities. Additional specialties are featured below.

Please contact CSOG to schedule a visit with an orthopedic specialist.

Specialized Treatment Options

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy

PRP therapy uses a high concentration of platelets from your own blood cells to deliver a boost to the body’s natural healing power. Platelet activity attracts stem cells, which are involved in repairing damaged tissues and regenerating new, healthy tissue.

An injection of stem cells can be given to advance the healing process even further. PRP therapy and stem cell therapy are associated with reduction in pain and faster healing for orthopedic injuries, with lower risks and lower costs than surgery. These advanced healing techniques can also be used to promote faster healing after surgery.

Learn more about PRP therapy and stem cell therapy.

Trauma & Fracture Care

A fracture is a break, usually in a bone. The type and severity of the fracture dictates the type of treatment. Simple fractures can often be set and cast, while more complex fractures often require surgery.

It is important to have a fracture evaluated as soon as possible after an accident or injury.

If you have suffered an accident, fall, or other injury, our surgeons specially trained in trauma and fracture care are ready to help you get on the road to recovery and back to your daily life.

Joint Replacement: Shoulder, Hip, and Knee

Shoulder Replacement

Many people with chronic shoulder pain and arthritis do not realize that, just like for hips and knees, shoulder replacement is an option. Shoulder replacement is generally done after more conservative treatment methods have failed. It greatly reduces pain and restores range of motion. Even those whose rotator cuffs are severely degenerated can find relief with a reverse shoulder replacement.

Find out how our board-certified and fellowship-trained surgeons specializing in both total and reverse shoulder replacement can help.

Hip Replacement

If you suffer from constant and acute hip pain that has not responded to other treatments, hip replacement surgery can provide relief and a new lease on life. Our board-certified surgeons have over 195 years of combined experience in this area and have brought relief from chronic hip pain to countless patients.

Knee Replacement

The world-class surgeons at Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group have helped thousands of people with chronic knee joint pain and degenerative arthritis overcome disability and regain lost mobility. You don’t just have to live with the pain; newer techniques allow for smaller incisions, less pain, and faster recovery.

Work-Related Injuries

Osteoporosis & Bone Health

In the US, about 10 million people are estimated to have osteoporosis, and about 34 million are estimated to have low bone mass, placing them at increased risk for osteoporosis. Even more startling, approximately 80% of patients do not receive recommended osteoporosis care following a fracture.

At the CSOG Osteoporosis Clinic, our providers address bone health in patients with comprehensive risk assessments, dietary information, lab and pharmacy services, and medication. Our mission is to promote bone health, reduce fracture risks, accelerate healing, and prevent re-fractures, ultimately detecting the disease at its earliest stage and taking measures to prevent its advancement.
