Are Saying


Thank you for the great care and follow up. After missing an entire ski season I am thrilled to be back hiking, biking and playing tennis this summer and fall. The team at VSON was great at returning messages and fitting me in for last minute appointments. I will gladly recommend you to all of my friends. Thanks again. I’m counting the days til the mountain opens and I can ski on my new and improved knee!

Over many years of skiing, mountain biking, motorcycle riding, and aging, I have taken a variety of broken and worn-out parts to Vail-Summit Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery for repair. Every time, their entire team has done a terrific job! They are skilled, professional, personal, experienced and at all levels attentive to patient needs. If you find yourself in need of orthopaedic assistance, go with confidence in VSON.

My first visit was for a fractured ankle (it was a mess). The doctor at VSON had an excellent bedside manner in addition to being professional and answering all my questions. Over the years, I've come back to VSON for several other injuries. All the doctors who've treated me were professional, kind, and dedicated. These are the types of qualities you all should be looking for in your health care professionals: skillful, professional, and personal.
