Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Duffey "I thoroughly enjoy the practice of Orthopedics. Unlike primary care, Orthopedic surgeons tend to provide more episodic care for a problem or injury. One of the aspects of practice that is most rewarding to me, however, is getting to know patients over time. Many of my patients and their families have seen me for different issues from time to time over the years. This gives me a real sense of belonging to the communities of The Springs, Monument, and Southern Colorado as a whole."
