Dr. Riley's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Riley "Dr. Jaren Riley was born in paradise, the KOA campground of Gunnison, Colorado. His parents raised him on the Four Gospels: climbing, kayaking, hunting, and fly-fishing. He was loved more than he deserved, and because he did not know any better, he believed everything his mother told him about his potential. At 19, he volunteered to be a missionary in Brazil, and learned the beauty of love and service. He spent his college years trying to find a way to continue to serve, and medicine offered him that chance. He met his stunning wife the summer before medical school, and after a lengthy courtship of three months, they were married. She has been his North Star and conscience ever since. They have sacrificed, learned, worked, and grown together. They have been blessed with four miraculous and unique children. Together, they hope to discover their hidden superpowers and rid the world of evil. Until then, they sweetly support Jaren in his work. Jaren is living his dream. From the moment he performed his first scoliosis surgery, he knew he would found his thrilling opportunity to serve. He works as a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, specializing in the reconstruction of scoliotic spines. He is humbled to learn from his patients, children, and wife, every day. He is living his dream."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Riley "Our goal at Rocky Mountain Pediatric Orthopedics is to get kids back to being kids as quickly as possible. That means traveling with them on the road to recovery or The Road to Get Up and Go. Kids are active, with developing bones and complicated growth cycles that, when compromised, can easily require an expert in pediatric orthopedics to help them heal, grow and return to their busy lives. The specialists at Rocky Mountain Pediatric Orthopedics are board-certified/eligible and recognized leaders in providing care for complex musculoskeletal disorders, as well as common childhood injuries. No matter how an injury occurs, your child will benefit from our medical expertise in treating pediatric orthopedic and sports injuries, as well as congenital differences. We provide experienced diagnosis, comprehensive treatment and extensive parent and child education, all in an environment where kids can feel safe and cared for and even have a little fun!"

Dr. Riley cares for my daughter as one of his own. He recently performed spinal fusion surgery on her and unfortunately, there were some complications.

Dr. Riley is a miracle worker, he took such wonderful care of our son. He had a 60 degree curve in his spine, and Dr. Riley straightened his spine- we never dreamed it could be rectified to the point it is. He is wonderful with his patients, put us at ease and is an incredibly talented doctor.

If I could give 10 stars, I would! I loved the office, the staff and the wait time was next to zero! They fit me in so I didn't have to wait for days or weeks to be seen. But my favorite part of the experience was when Dr. Riley walked into the room. He spoke to my 3 year old with such care and...more
