Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Witsell "I was born and raised in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and have a deep love for the natural beauty that blesses us each day. I believe that we are all connected in our journeys to be better people and that healing takes place within a space of openness and honesty. I respect the tremendous privilege that comes with being a surgeon and recognize that my role in healing often requires a period of pain and discomfort before improved health. This is an unavoidable part of surgery. My love of my specialty comes from its involvement with all five senses we have as human beings: hearing smelling seeing feeling and tasting. This is how we take information in and experience our world our friends and family. I have two dogs a wonderful daughter and son and a partner; all who support and love me dearly. I work with a wonderful team that makes good work into tremendous work."
