Foot and Ankle

Make An Orthopedic Appointment:

Denver Health now allows patients to schedule appointments directly with orthopedic providers, skipping the need for a referral from a primary care doctor. However, certain insurance plans might still require a referral including Medicare and Medicaid. This change simplifies access to orthopedic care, ensuring you can get the orthopedic help you need without unnecessary delays.




Strong feet are essential to your body’s ability to balance and move. Your foot contains 25 percent of the bones in your body and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. These are some of the most complex machines in the human body and they deserve special care.

Our orthopedic experts and podiatrists can help you relieve aching feet, arthritic ankles and many more common problems.
