Dr. Shaw's Care Philosophy

I take a meticulous detail-oriented approach to every surgery including thorough pre-operative and post-operative care to provide the best possible outcome from any surgical procedure. While there are no guarantees in medicine, especially surgery, working with my anesthesia and nursing colleagues I will do my best to make surgery as gentle and minimally disruptive to your child's or teen's life and return he or she to normal activites and school as soon as possible.

Monument, CO |
My daughter was just diagnosed with Scoliosis today and he really put our mind at ease. He was honest but sincere! He is awesome with kids! He doesn't give surgery as a first option! He is a specialist so you do have to wait a little bit!

Completely inaccessible. Does not take the time to talk or follow up with his patients.

I tore my ACL when I was eight years old due to a trampoline. A lot of the other doctors I went to said I was to young to have a sergury on my knee. Dr.Shaw performed a surgery on my knee now I am playing football, basketball, wrestling, high jumping off of the leg I had the operation on, and playing baseball with 0 pain what's so ever! So thank you Doctor Shaw
Exceeded any expectations!
