      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Jacobson's Care Philosophy

      Pain or injuries impact a person's quality of life. My goal is to guide patients through a comprehensie treatment plan that restores pre-injury function and helps prevent recurrent injury. It is very rewarding when patients are able to return to their activities or sports.

      Dr. Jacobson says...

      I worked at the base of Winter Park ski resort for several years where I gained invaluable experience diagnosing and treating orthopedic injuries, such as fractures and dislocations.

      I was also a collegiate basketball player and understand the mentality of an athlete and your urgency to get off the sidelines and back in the game.

      Whether eccentric exercises or cortisone injections, I try to make sure I only do treatments that are supported through research.
