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 for repair. Every time, their entire team has done a terrific job! They are skilled, professional, personal, experienced at all levels, and attentive to patient needs. Most of all, they get the job done. VSO has always been effective in their medicine and, when needed, surgery. If you  happen to break something, you couldn't find a better place for orthopaedic care in the heart of ski country!

Doctor and Patient

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.Your team was great at returning messages and fitting me in for last minute appointments.

Excellent. After swapping from a surgeon in Alaska, Dr. Elton picked right up and went to work! The surgery to remove a fixation screw went swimmingly, and all the follow-ups were very professional and comforting. I'll be seeing him again this year and likely next, and can say confidently that I have zero worries. Your team at both the office and the surgery center were also awesome! Highly recommend you guys again.
