Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yurth "My goal is to really be sure you have a clear understanding of your pain or injury. Next, you and I will discuss all the available treatment options, both surgical and conservative, and TOGETHER decide on the best plan for you personally. I also have fellowship training in anti-aging (regenerative) medicine and own another practice called Boulder Longevity Institute. This unique background and experience can help you to learn about health options to facilitate recovery and prevent re-injury."
