Not sure if it's too late, but wanted to give you another name: Dr. Peter Millett (Orthopedic Surgeon | Elbow Knee Shoulder Specialist | Sports Medicine
) of the Steadman Clinic in Vail. I have seen him as a patient and also know him professionally as I work with many physicians and surgeons in marketing. Now that I know how unique the Steadman Clinic in Vail (which is completely different than the other Steadman-Hawkins Clinics, btw) is, I would never go anywhere else for orthopaedic treatment. They have the largest orthopaedic research database in the world and track their patients so tightly that they are able to tweak their procedures on the fly based on their own outcomes. The physicians there are the best of the best and truly care about their patients - I know this from seeing them from a business side as well. Although he is in his early forties, Dr. Millett has an 80 page CV because of all the research he has done on shoulder injuries specifically and his teaching at Harvard and elsewhere (a bit of a medical prodigy). I spoke to one of his patients who had double shoulder replacement and asked him why, as another medical professional, he chose to travel so far to go to Dr. Millett. He told me "because I wanted to find the best". He had interviewed numerous surgeons across the country and found that, while most had done 50 of this specific procedure, Dr. Millett had done 500+. I have such incredible respect for Dr. Millett and his dedication to his patients that I could go on and on. He is truly a gem! Look at the patient stories on his website and you'll see how much his patients adore him. Hope this helps.
