Biography

Before medical school, Dr. Jeffers spent time in Vail, CO helping patients rehabilitate and recover from orthopaedic injuries. This gives him an interesting perspective on patient care as he has helped guide patients through every phase of an injury: from diagnosing them on the field, to performing their surgery, to helping them rehab and recover. He completed medical school in Tampa at the University of South Florida. He then did his orthopaedic surgery residency in New Orleans at Louisiana State University. After completing residency, he moved here to Denver to complete a fellowship in Sports Medicine Surgery at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic where he helped take care of the Denver Broncos, Colorado Rockies and Cherry Creek High School.

Dr. Jeffers is an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee.

He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons and the Arthroscopy Association of North America. He has published on rare injuries, ACL reconstruction in Division I football players, and complex hip anatomy.
