I went to Dr Bach when a coworker recommended him after my horrible experience with a different orthopedic office. It was like night and day! Dr Bach was very informative and explained things so I would understand very thoroughly.

Met Br Bach during my first ACl and he's been my guy for the last 17 years. He explains everything very thoroughly and listens intently. Couldn't ask for a better Doctor to fix you up.

When I tore my ACL skiing in December 2018 and the Steamboat ER doc told me that I would need surgery I was in shock. Thanks to a friend, I was referred to Dr. Bach. Dr. Bach spent time with me during every office visit, explained the procedure and alternative suggestions, and quickly followed up on any questions I had outside of scheduled appointments. His bedside manner kept me calm. I decided to go with surgery. This experience was phenomenal. The surgical center was nice and clean. Dr. Bach's staff were caring and compassionate. Most importantly, Dr. Bach fixed my torn ACL with minimal scarring. I can barely see the surgical sites on my knee. His work was so flawless, that my recovery was quick (with the help of PT) and I was back to my normal activities in no time. Thank you to the best surgeon and surgical team.

Great experience, He performed surgery on my right shoulder many years ago. I had no problem after that. Now my other shoulder is bothering me. He’s the only doctor I would see to get an accurate diagnosis.

After a bad fall on my right shoulder I could not sleep through the night without a dull ache waking me up between 9 - 13 times a night. 3 days after surgery I was sleeping through the night. 7 Weeks later I was back to full range of motion. I hope to be back to playing racquetball within a couple more months. I am 53 years old and was told to live with it and see what happens over the next year. I feel my athletic lifestyle is back!! Thanks Dr. Bach!!!
