Michalson, MD is an expert in the surgical treatment of knee and hip arthritis and fractures throughout the body.  He grew up on a corn and soybean farm in northcentral Iowa and incorporates that humble background and sense of community into the care of his patients.  His goal for patient care is simple: to utilize the latest and most proven nonsurgical and surgical methods to eliminate pain and restore desired function as quickly as possible.  Along the way, Dr. Michalson and his team work diligently to ensure that patients and their families fully understand the diagnosis, treatment options, and recovery.

Dr. Michalson is also fellowship trained in the surgical treatment of knee and hip arthritis.  He specializes in outpatient knee and hip replacement, minimally invasive anterior approach hip replacement, robotic arm knee replacement, and partial knee replacement.  He also performs revision knee and hip replacement surgery for patients with prior knee or hip replacement who are having pain or limitation of function.  Using the most advanced surgical techniques and postoperative pain management strategies, his goal is for the quickest possible resolution of pain, resumption of work, return to driving, and re-engagement in normal life.

Outside of medicine, Dr. Michalson enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. They love the Denver area for its outdoor activities, the many dining options, and its wonderful museums.  He additionally enjoys golfing and fishing in his spare time.

Jared Michealson did my surgery at Aurora Med Center 10 years ago in July. I have a permanent titanium rod, a plate, 13 screws. I am still working at the same job, with no discomfort and 100% mobility. Thank you.

Dr. Michalson did my hip and pelvis surgery. When I was told I was having the surgery I was informed there were a lot of risks involved with the procedure. A year now after the surgery I couldn’t be more thankful that Dr. Michalson was the one to perform my procedure. He was quick to let me know everything I could about the procedure and did the incisions beautifully. All in all he is great doctor the best I have worked with so far in my life and am very thankful he was around when I had my accident!

Dr Michaelson is very knowledgeable, and very friendly, he explained the procedure right to the last detail. It’s obvious that he cares about his patience and his practice. I left his office a very happy, satisfied patient.

Over the last 12 years I have had both knees and both hips replaced. I am pain free. Dr. Michalson has done all my replacements and I would recommend his skills to all. Thanks

Great Dr. (Michaelson)17 yr old son broken hip and femur. Able to climb, bike and ski again at top level. DR. Michaelson was very supportive and did a great job on the surgery for a successful recovery.
I have been seeing Dr. Michalson for several years. He replaced my right knee in 2012 and it's still doing great. He is easy to talk to and always willing to take the time to answer questions. He and his team are very responsive and caring. I have recommended him to others who are also very pleased. I highly recommend Dr. Michalson.
