Patient Comments (13)
in Golden, CO |
I highly recommend Dr. Dennis Chang, who has developed quality teams for the Denver Center for Joint Replacement at Rose Medical Center: the office receptionists and medical assistants, the surgical staff and post-op nursing staff. Patients can trust to be treated with kindness and efficiency, and most of all, Dr. Chang and his staff LISTEN to their patients, making certain their needs and expectations are met. Had two successful replacements!
in Centennial, CO |
Dr Chang has been stellar in his dealings with me and my bad knees. He's knowledgeable and informative and a skilled surgeon. I've known several of his patients; all say the same of him, He has performed a right knee replacement for me three years ago and it has worked well (but you have to faithfully do the physical therapy afterwards!). Dr Chang has since completed arthroscopic surgery on my left knee that will inevitably need replacement. I'd trust no one else to do the surgery.
in Aurora, CO |
I am a returning patient who had my right hip replaced four years ago. I would highly recommend Dr. Chang to my family and friends. He does an excellent job of explaining his procedures and what is expected before, during and post-op and, more importantly, recovery. I just had my left hip replaced 10/11/2017 and am home and on the road to recovery. I am very excited about the progress I have made in less than a week.
in Aurora, CO |
Dr Chang replaced my left hip doing the anterior procedure. He was very thorough in his pre-op discussion and very specific as to the options that existed with my damaged hip. He was again thorough and concerned about any questions I had during pre-op preparation and personally kept my wife informed during post-op recovery. He followed through during my recovery at Rose and informed me of the results of his procedure. In my two week follow up he explained what to expect during PT.

I have been going to Dr Chang for many years. He has replaced both my knees, and a repair on my hip. Smallest scars on my knees that I have ever seen. I wouldn't see anyone else. He's the best.
in Aurora, CO |
Dr. Chang replaced both of my knees in two surgeries 5 years apart. My results in both situations were excellent. My recovery was faster, easier (although not easy), and less challenging than others I have spoken with regarding their experiences with other doctors. I recommend Dr. Chang without hesitation. He's the best!
Thank you for your sharing your experience! We will be sure to let Dr. Chang and the team know about your story.
in Greenwood Village, CO |
Dr. Chang literally changed my life! Over the past three years both of my hips deteriorated from osteoarthritis. I literally allowed my active life to disintegrate along with my hips. I could hardly walk, couldn't sleep, was unable to work, and was in constant pain. I did this to myself by waiting way too long to see Dr. Chang for life changing surgeries. He came highly recommended by my physicians as well as prior patients I consulted, and I recommend Dr. Chang without reservation! Don't wait!
Thank you so much for sharing your experience! We truly appreciate it.

Dr. Chang replaced my hip even after he had told me that he didn't think it would alleviate the pain I was having. The surgery left me with the leg longer than the other one and has caused even more pain and continuing problems. A second opinion confirmed that the leg with the replaced hip was indeed longer and that I would have to wear orthopedics for the rest of my life. Dr. Chang denied my pain, blamed it elsewhere and did not help me solve the problem he create. He was a big mistake.
in Aurora, CO |
Dr Chang is the most skilled, amazing orthopedic surgeon for hips and knees, both my daughter and I have required his services, now 4 different times.
in Parker, CO |
My entire experience of having a right knee replacement with Dr. Chang and his staff was excellent.
Littleton, CO |
Fabulously gifted surgeon.
in Lakewood, CO |
Dr. Chang did both of my hip replacements in 2014. He is a no-nonsense doctor and explained everything both before and after the surgery. I am very satisfied with his care and have referred others to him as well.
in Parker Colorado |
I had Dr Chang do my hip replacement and he was great, I'm 52 and very active, skiing, biking, tennis and golf. it's been one year since I had it done and I can do everything I did before and I have had no problems at all. I need to get my right hip replaced soon and I am definitely going to have him do that one also. He will gladly answer any questions you have so write down any concerns and bring it with you.A+ Dr for hip replacement!
