Learn about Dr. Butzen

Care Philosophy

Doctor Butzen is a patient, caring physician who takes the time to explain the condition and treatment options with the patient, to create a trusting physician-patient relationship. He utilizes his years of experience treating trauma and sports injuries to give the best care for your shoulder, knee, wrist or hand pain, arthritis, or injury. Doctor Butzen does not work with a physician's assistant (PA), so each appointment with him will be face-to-face with Doctor Butzen, a board-certified fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon.

Patient Comments (1)
in Durango, CO |
Having seen several orthopedic surgeons over the years, I have enough experience to confidently reccomend Dr. Butzin. His explanation of my existing shoulder injury, the procedure he would eventually perform so well, my journey toward recovery, and shaping goals and expectations along the way were all spot on. Dr. Butzin took the time to thoroughly explain all of these aspects and made it a point to answer all of my questions along the way. Highest marks for Dr. Butzin
