University of Colorado Spine Center, Anschutz Outpatient Pavilion - Aurora, CO
      The Spine Center operates under a patient-centric model of care that is unique to the Rocky       Mountain region. Patients are initially evaluated and treated by a physician who specializes in       physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatrist). Surgery is only considered if non-surgical options       are unsuccessful. In these cases, the clinic's onsite orthopaedic spine surgeons and       neurosurgeons work together to plan the appropriate surgical procedure. In addition,       comprehensive rehabilitation care in physical and occupational therapy, as well as pain psychology       are available onsite to provide a full breadth of clinical services.

University of Colorado Sports Medicine, Denver and Boulder, CO
      The sports medicine clinics focus on competitive and recreational athletes of all types and ages.       Patients receive comprehensive care for sports and related injuries at CU Sports Medicine. With       radiology and rehabilitation services conveniently located onsite, orthopaedic and Physical Medicine       and Rehabilitation specialists work with radiologists, certified athletic trainers, and physical       therapists to return patients quickly and safely to their normal activities whether organized or       recreational sports.
