GreatIt is rare when you find a good listener and great communicator. I left with a thorough understanding of my problem and options. I recommend Dr. Rowland highly.
Littleton, CO |
Dr Rowland is exceptional in his knowledge and his down to earth demeanor. I trust him 100%. I am very thankful to have him as my surgeon.
in Denvebroomfieldr, CO |
Excellent medical specialist. His 31 years of speciality experience became quite evident in the first five minutes. He explained my X-rays and injury so I understood it and addressed any questions I had. I felt Dr. Roland really listened and answered my concerns. I would not hesitate to refer any family member or friend to Dr. Roland. He is a credit to the Medical Professionals!
Morrison, CO |
Dr. Rowland was wonderful! He took the time to explain my sons diagnosis to us and the reasons for his recommended treatment. He showed us his radiographs to fully explain the situation. His staff was also professional and detailed with every step they took. His office also ran in a timely manner, which is very appreciated!

This man saved my life. I had a horrific collarbone break from a skiing accident. Dr. Rowland lined up my clavicle and installed a plate and screws. I had a very difficult recovery for 15 months. My body was rejecting the metal plate and foreign objects. I had a 2nd surgery to remove the hardware and all but a very small screw was removed. I feel mostly healed almost 4 months after the 2nd surgery and have nothing but praise for his meticulous skills and medical expertise. A+.
Denver, CO |
Dr. Rowland is very caring, professional and explained all aspects of my problem and suggested treatment.
in Wheat Ridge, Colo. |
Dr. Rowland was wonderful, very thorough and was not in a rush to leave the room. My appointment was on time which I really appreciate. So many offices require you to be there early but if they are running late they don't care how long you sit in the waiting room. He explained the X-ray and answered all my questions and concerns. When I decide on the surgery he will be the one!
in Wheat Ridge, CO |
Dr. Rowland is simply the best! We will be forever in his debt for doing a complex surgery on our 88-year old mother; giving her a new opportunity to live a happy, healthy amazing life with family and friends. We highly recommend Dr. Rowland and his amazing staff!!!

in colorado springs, co |
Dr. Rowland is an amazing hand surgeon. He gave me back the use of my hands. He has changed my life! I had very deformed hands from RA. My Rheumatologist told me that there was nothing that could be done to fix them. Dr. Rowland looked at my hands & said, "I can fix your hands including your thumbs and I know how to do it." He was right! He did fix my hands. He fused some joints, replaced 2 knuckles, did tendon transfers, fixed my thumbs. I am eternally grateful for him &his phenomenal skills.
