Care Philosophy

As an athlete myself, I understand sports and activities are a lifestyle. My #1 goal is to return patients' function at home, at work; on the trail or on the field. My philosophy is to exhaust advanced rehabilitation and non-operative therapies before considering surgery. I practice minimally invasive orthopaedics including the latest arthroscopic techniques to treat disorders of the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle. Whether you're a professional athlete, or a weekend warrior looking to get back in the game, consider me on your side. We'll work together to find the treatment program that works for you.

in Granby, CO |
I recently had shoulder surgery after a skiing accident. Dr. Meininger did an excellent job. I had surgery the day after my first appointment with him. It was only a week ago but I feel better every day. He was my second opinion Doctor and I am very glad he was recommended to me.
