Care Philosophy

" I want to give my patients an informed and honest clinical experience. This involves educating them regarding the diagnosis (which may not always be immediately clear) and presenting them with a "menu" of treatment options based on the best and most current information we have from clinical and science research. That is the only way to allow patients to make an informed decision".

Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group is dedicated to comprehensive, specialized and exceptional patient care. Our subspecialized physicians treat sports injuries, hand and arm injuries, foot and ankle problems, back and neck pain, hip and knee conditions and arthritis. Our onsite services include X-ray, MRI, orthotics and prosthetics, physical and occupational therapy and outpatient surgery. Furthermore, our evening and Saturday hours allow same day appointments for your urgent orthopedic needs.

Dr. Watson repaired a tendon injury on my right hand that occurred as a result of trauma. The injury happened at 10pm on a Sunday and I was in the OR at 8am the next day, without an ER visit. He was very transparent and informative throughout the entire process, even after complications that resulted in a second surgery and many more visits with a drawn out recovery. He did not order unnecessary tests or schedule unneeded appointments. Although it's been over a year, my finger is near 100%.

Dr. Watson and his staff saved my hand from being amputated. Doctors at the smaller hospital who sent me to Dr. Watson had already discussed amputation with me which is why I asked for a transfer. Dr. Watson performed 14 operations on my right hand over the course of three years (most of which I had no insurance and no way to pay him) he never mentioned money or cost just that he was going to save my hand. Instead of telling me Well there's a chance you could lose it I owe Dr. Watson everythin
Dr. Watson is one of the kindest, most intelligent surgeons I have met (and that's saying something, because I met with 4 others!) He is incredibly thorough and will do everything in his power to fix what ails you. I highly recommend him!
