Colorado Springs Orthopaedic group is a top-notch organization dedicated to returning athletes to the field through a comprehensive course of treatment. From initial visit to the last day of Physical Therapy, my overall experience following a knee injury was nothing short of outstanding. I have had two foot and two knee surgeries and this was by far the best experience I have ever had.
Dr. Jones is an exemplary surgeon; his bedside manner, his innovative techniques and thorough follow-up care make him the best surgeon I have ever encountered. I had a rather gruesome knee injury that I feared might take me away from the activities I love. I initially met with another surgeon at CSOG who referred me to Dr. Jones. When we met for the first time we reviewed the films together and then spent a long time talking about the sports I enjoy (karate, skiing, baseball) and my expectations following the surgery. My expectation was that I could return to all of these activities and not have to worry about a repeat injury.
The course of treatment Dr. Jones followed was, to me, innovative (I had a similar injury/procedure to the other knee ten years prior with much different results) and relied on my willingness to complete the PT afterward in order to return to full function. Three months later I am back to all of my activities without concern.
I am 44 years old, but I never felt like an old man with Dr. Jones, he treated me like an athlete and, in conjunction with the CSOG Physical Therapy Team, developed a treatment plan to return me to the field, not just for long strolls on the beach.
The CSOG Physical Therapy Team met me directly after surgery and then again for my first post op appointment. I always had the feeling that Matt and Julie and the entire PT staff were part of a team dedicated to my return to the field. They developed a comprehensive plan to develop my strength and flexibility through a wide range of cardio and strength training exercises. They pushed me hard but I always felt like I was part of the team working to return my knee to full function. Honestly, I am stronger now than I was before the injury and the PT team has given me the tools to keep myself strong and flexible for the long term. All of this was accomplished in a fun, friendly and relaxing atmosphere. I am happy to report that this past weekend I was
back teaching karate and skiing black diamonds.
The staff at Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group is an absolutely outstanding group of dedicated and caring professionals. I give them my highest possible recommendation for orthopaedic care.
