I have him to thank for a wonderful outcome, superb surgical skills, great bed side manner, he listened to and answered all my concerns. I have worked in health care for 40 years so I know a few things about quality care. Dr. Larkin and his staff are the best.

My husband had a knee replacement and was quite nervous about the surgery and recovery. Dr. Larkin took the time to explain what to expect and answered all of our questions. His staff is great and was easy to reach by phone if we needed anything at all. Dr Larkin has great communication skills and did a great job with the surgery. He is amazing.

I would like to extend a life changing thank you to Dr. Larkin and staff for the wonderful experience with a total hip replacement. I was literally walking a few hours after the procedure and have not looked back. I wish I had it done years ago. Rock stars in my world. Bob Gleave

Great surgeon but office staff very unaccommodating with scheduling appointments. I've had to go elsewhere for postop follow up.

I had two very successful total knee replacements with Dr Larkin in 2016 and couldn't be happier with the outcomes. Dr. Larkin and his staff were always there, professional, knowledgeable, understanding, and kind. I always felt like I was with an incredibly competent surgeon, and I trusted him and his staff with my wellbeing, and was happy I did so. His choice of Rose Medical Center for the surgeries was super as well, great place and great nursing staff. Super Doctor!! thank you.

For years I had delayed getting my hip replaced because of my age. Dr. Larkin explained the surgery and future procedure options. I highly recommend him and only wish I'd had the procedure with him 5 years earlier.

Dr. Larkin was outstanding both before, during, and after the operation of my left hip replacement. He kept me informed and gave me accurate expectations during my recovery. I will go back to him if I need future hip or knee replacement.

After consulting with 2 other Orthopedic Surgeons who recommended a Full Knee Replacement i went to see Dr. Larkin. Upon review of my X-rays, MRI, and a physical exam he recommended a Partial Knee Replacement. Recovery time 6-8 weeks versus 3-4 months for full replacement. Dr. Larkin showed me the actual appartus of the partial replacement and sold me on the operation. The operation was a total success and I golfed in 6 weeks and i day. His Medical Assistant Becca was most helpful.

I had both of my hips replaced over a 2 month period by Dr. Larkin. Both surgeries were quick and uneventful. Neither required an overnight stay at the hospital. Recoveries from both surgeries were quick and pain free. I was walking around the day after surgery, and fully recovered in 2-3 weeks. Dr. Larkin was great about explaining my options prior to surgery, and he was very good about answering my questions after surgery. My experience under Dr. Larkin's care was excellent.

I have a total hip replacement and after 22 days was able to return to my job which involves walking on roofs and traversing crawlspaces. His staff working with me to get me in quickly since my other physician canceled my surgery at the 11th hour. The staff and Dr. Larkin were great. If you need orthopedic care stop looking you have found the best in Denver.
