Welcome to Denver Health Orthopedics

Our internationally-recognized team treats a full range of injuries, from common to complex. In most cases, no referral is needed.


Make An Appointment

If you're experiencing shoulder pain, make an appointment with the Denver Health orthopedic specialists. 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.



Shoulder Pain & Treatment:

Each year, millions of people visit their doctor's office complaining of shoulder pain. Many of these rotator cuff and shoulder injuries are sports-related and affect those that use the shoulder actively. Pain in the shoulder can be managed with the right treatment.

Most shoulder injuries and associated shoulder pain are caused by the type of repetitive motion you find in swimming, tennis, throwing or weightlifting. However, even common shoulder injuries can be caused by routine daily activities like cleaning, gardening and working.

The orthopedic experts at Denver Health are here to help you identify the problem and treat your shoulder injury so you can get back to doing what you love.
