Dr. Geoffrey Doner is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopy of the hip. He is a proud graduate with distinction from the University of Colorado at Boulder with degrees in Biology and Communication. He went on to graduate from the University of Colorado Medical School, receiving the distinguished William Winters award as the top medical student in the orthopedic department. He then completed his orthopedic residency at the University of New York at Stony Brook. Upon finishing his residency, he then went on to pursue additional sports medicine training. He attended a one-year fellowship at Cincinnati Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center, during which time Dr. Doner had the opportunity to care for the Cincinnati Bengals Football Team. To further refine his craft, Dr. Doner continued his studies by completing several more months of additional hip arthroscopy training.

After traveling the country, there was nowhere Dr. Doner would rather begin his career than by serving in his own backyard. Since beginning his practice in Colorado Springs in 2013, Dr. Doner has had the distinct honor of serving as the team doctor for the USA Junior Basketball team on two trips and the Colorado Switchbacks FC since 2015. He also gets his fill of the Friday Night Lights by volunteering his time as the team doctor for two local high school football teams.

Being a Colorado native Dr. Doner understands what it means to Coloradoans to be active, and is determined to help his patients attain their goal of being back on the ski slopes, hiking trails, or wherever their active lives are taking them.

I couldn’t be happier with the professional service I received from everyone involved. Surgery is a very trying experience but, was made easier because of caring people.

Minimal wait upon arrival. Reception, medical assistants pleasant and efficient. They and the physician reviewed my intake information and were prepared. Dr. Doner is an excellent physician, he has performed several procedures on my knee and hips with excellent outcomes over the years and has kept me hiking and skiing into my 70s.

Everything went smoothly from the moment I arrived. I was called back in 10 minutes, then taken to X-ray for films. Dr. Doner came in within 10 mins. We went over the films (which showed bone on bone contact in my hip). He went over options and I chose PT to start with. Eventually I’ll need a hip replacement but that can wait. Dr Doner did an excellent job explaining everything. I made my PT appt that day, the ladies at the PT desk were very helpful.Overall my visit was great. Nice people at each station.

Extremely happy with the care I received. Dr. Doner was friendly & professional. Knew exactly what my problem was after looking at my X-rays. My pain has been greatly reduced in just 24 hours. I would highly recommend this doctor for anyone with knee pain.

I tore my meniscus is two places (one torn 50% and the other at 10%). Additionally, my knee was significantly swollen, which was causing me immense pain. Dr. Doner and his team were efficient, caring, professional and committed to getting me back leg functionality. This surgery was life-changing! I didn’t realize how much pain I endured daily and how much I was unable to lead a full active lifestyle. At my 6-week follow-up I was able to bend and straighten my my leg to points I hadn’t in over a year. I have regained my life and lifestyle! Dr. Doner is an incredible surgeon and I will be forever grateful to him for his care and dedication to his craft! 10 out of 10 would highly recommend to everyone I know!!
