I have just recently undergone a total knee replacement surgery on 1/30/17 by Dr. Dennis and his team. Because of my fear of going to the doctor and especially the thought of surgery I waited till I absolutely couldn't take the pain any longer. Through recommendations of friends and church members who had Dr. Dennis and all having excellent experiences I chose Dr. Dennis as my surgeon. My experience is the same as the others. Dr. Dennis and his team and Porter Hospital are outstanding!

Had a total hip replacement in Dec 16. Was in absolute agony before. Had a great outcome with Dr Dennis and the team at Colorado Joint Replacement. Highly recommend.

I'm a Nurse so I'm on my feet all the time. I've had both of my knees replaced approx 14 months apart. Dr Dennis is a very intelligent surgeon with a exceptional bedside manner. From my very 1st appointment, when I was in excuruating daily pain to my last 6 month/ 1yr follow up. Dr Dennis sat down & truely listened to my concerns before & after both of my surgeries. I would recommend him to my family or colleagues if they needed knee replacements. ??

Extremely thorough and a great staff to back him up! I feel so fortunate. My knee was replaced three weeks ago, and I'm doing wonderfully since I am following his recommendations. Porter Hospital is exceptionally clean, welcoming, and even great food. I would definitely recommend Dr. Dennis!

Dr Dennis and his entire staff were very professional and well organized. All of my appointments, to include my surgical appointment was on time or earlier. He ensured that I was completely comfortable with the procedure and that all of my questions were answered. He and his staff provided me with a fool proof plan to prepare me for a successful surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Dennis to anyone in need of joint replacement.

I arrived early for my2:00 appt and previously filled out the paperwork. It started out to be a positive experience (Jonathan at the front desk was very pleasant)! That's where is stopped though. After waiting 35 mins to be taken into an exam room, I waited another hour and twenty mins. for Dr. Dennis. He did his assessment of my knees, which took maybe 15 min. He made several comments about being morbidly obese. Regardless of that, his manner of telling me was rude and not beneficial!
