Orthopedic Centers of Colorado exceeded all of my expectations when I had to have an unexpected hand surgery due to a dog bite. My surgeon, Dr. Griggs, is skilled and direct. All of the nurses, therapists, and receptionists I have worked with have been kind and attentive, making this whole experience a little easier to endure. I would recommend this team to anyone in my family. Thanks OCC for taking such great care of me.

I’ve had a finger issue for 3 years. I went to my family doctor, my dermatologist and finally Dr. Griggs, my hand specialist. He did a quick surgery on my finger and I believe I will finally have closure. I am so grateful to have this finally finished. Thank you so much.
