On Christmas Eve 2013, I tripped and fell in the garage, shredding my bicep and tearing the rotator cuff in my left arm. After seeing my primary care physician, going through physical therapy and having two injections, I finally got a referral to Dr. Jones. He reviewed the X-rays and MRI, determined what was wrong and that I needed surgery to repair the damage. He did arthroscopic surgery on my left shoulder in July 2014 and the right shoulder in February 2015. After completing
physical therapy I feel like I have a new lease on life with a full range of motion in both arms and no pain. Dr. Jones listens to his patients and is kind and caring.
Thanks for your help, Dr. Jones.

Before having shoulder surgery, I contacted a number of friends that had shoulder surgery to ask them about their experiences.  After hearing glowing reports about Dr. Jones, I decided to ask my friends at Orthopedic Rehabilitation Associates their opinion as to who the best shoulder repair surgeon in Colorado Springs is.  They unequivocally told me, Christopher Jones.  Now, six months after my surgery, I can add my voice to the acclaim based on my experience.  Everyone told me that shoulder surgery is the most painful and difficult rehab.  I discontinued all pain medications two days after surgery because of unpleasant side effects.  The pain was manageable.  I took rehab seriously and, as a result, was able to return to reasonably normal activities well before the twelve weeks of rehab were completed.  Thank you, Dr. Jones!

I had shoulder surgery on 28 July 2015. When I was referred to Dr. Jones I was a bit skeptical- long periods of endured pain will do that to a person. Dr. Jones was patiently quiet and listened to my (long) litany of aches, pains, and causes. After a few tests that confirmed arthritis and possible rotator cuff tear Dr. Jones clearly outlined the two possible paths; i.e., MORE physical therapy or surgery. I told him that since I already had years of PT let’s just go ahead with the surgery. He slapped his knee and said, “That’s what I’d recommend!” I laughed and asked why he didn’t just say so. His reply was that it was my decision, but a good one.

My point is that I liked his style from that point on. I knew then that he knew exactly what he was doing and the doctor-patient relationship was cemented with a demonstrated capability to size up both patient AND problem. The surgery went smoothly, and the follow-up, with all the personnel; i.e., Physician Assistants, Physical Therapy, etc., have contributed to a restoration of my use of my left arm and shoulder. I highly recommend Dr. Jones and his team at Colorado Springs Orthopedic Health Group,

Dr. Christopher Jones repaired the Rotor-cuff in my right shoulder. I couldn’t ask for a more caring physician/surgeon. The surgery went very well and therapy went as scheduled and within 3 months I had full movement. I will be having Dr. Jones repair the left shoulder in October.  His bedside manner cannot be beaten. Dr. Jones is a very caring person and I certainly would recommend him to anyone that needed shoulder surgery.

I am a 46 yr old man who destroyed his rotator cuff in the gym trying to keep up with all the 20 and 30 somethings I work with. I do overseas diplomatic security and physical fitness is paramount in the performance of my duties. I went to Doctor Jones as he was the doctor who performed both of my mothers’ shoulder replacements and did an outstanding job on both.

Once all the exams/MRI’s were done and surgery was deemed necessary, Dr. Jones explained the entire process and was very patient with me and my wife’s questions and concerns. At no time did I feel rushed or I was being treated as “just another patient”. Come surgery day, again Dr. Jones met with us and was very confidence-inspiring and calming. I came out of surgery with flying colors and after a quality physical therapy regime, I healed very well and returned to work 3 months later with little limitations.
Without a doubt, I would use Dr. Jones and his team again.

Shoulder pain was my worst enemy for a number of years, even after I had undergone rotator cuff surgery. I was sleeping only 3 or 4 hours nightly because of pain and could not lift our youngest grandchild. My wife and I love to travel, but I was embarrassed that I could not lift her suitcase and placed in the overhead bin.

On January 28, 2016, I had a reverse shoulder replacement with Dr. Jones. Today April 27, 2016, I was able to trim trees with pruners, shovel dirt out of flower pots, and complete all daily functions without pain in my left shoulder. I am sleeping normally without pills and plan to be fly fishing in the middle of May (less than 4 ½ months after surgery). My physical therapist said she was extremely proud of my progress, but that all of her patients referred by Dr. Christopher Jones, M.D. had done extremely well.

I feel so fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Jones and am thankful to him for my reverse shoulder replacement. My surgical experience was so positive that I plan to have the same procedure on my right shoulder this year at age 72, as I want to be able to continue to fly fish, travel, and bike. If anyone reading this is having shoulder pain, I highly recommend that you consider all the options that are available to you and seek out a talented surgeon.

Thank you, Dr. Jones, for giving me a new lease on an active lifestyle.

Two of my most trusted friends recommended Dr. Jones to me after more than 3 years of unresolved shoulder pain following a mountain bike accident. Other doctors had been dismissive and I thought I was destined to live with chronic pain for the rest of my life. When I visited with Dr. Jones, he took my injuries seriously and after an office evaluation, he ordered MRIs to assess the extent of the damage. The imaging showed that both rotator cuffs had full-thickness tears with one torn even worse than the other.

Dr. Jones arthroscopically repaired both of my rotator cuffs within 9 months of each other. Both surgeries were complex and complete successes. Because of the extent of the injuries and the surgical expertise required to make the repairs, I truly believe a lesser skilled surgeon would not have achieved the same results. It’s been almost 5 years and I have had no pain and the repairs have held up throughout the course of my high impact sports. Dr. Jones is passionate about his work and deserves the highest possible recommendation as a caring and highly skilled orthopedic surgeon.

Being in the world of extreme sports as long as I have, I’ve had my fair share of doctors. Dr. Jones and his office are both easy to work with and it is a comfortable atmosphere every visit. Thanks again doc

Dr. Jones is my surgeon and I had PHENOMENAL RESULTS.

My name is Jo and I am 61 yrs old. When my left shoulder locked up and I could no longer move it, my doctor sent me to Dr. Jones. I had an x-ray and then an MRI. Determining that I had arthritis and bone spurs in my shoulder joint, Dr. Jones and I determined he should do an orthoscopic operation to see if he could free the joint. He got in there and scrapped out arthritis and filed off the bone spurs. Afterward, he told me to get out of the sling as soon as possible. That night I took it off.

I started physical therapy three days later. Other than it has taken a while for my muscles to realize what they used to know and how to work. Stretch stretch stretch….. PT and Dr. Jones have completely brought back my range of motion in my arm. It has been six weeks since my surgery and I couldn’t be happier.

I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Jones and his team. A very nice and competent man and fabulous facility and people who work with and for him.
