    Incredible experience. He is a top notch Doctor, not only in Colorado but the whole country. Rest easy if he is your surgeon.

    We would highly recommend Dr. Mitchell for his persisting in what was an improbable surgery on our daughter. Previous treatments made it impossible for him to complete her surgery. He, through his professional expertise knew when to stop, although we are sure it was very difficult for him to not succeed. It was extremely difficult for our daughter with an eleven day stay at Anschutz Hospital. She never regretted his attempt to remove her cancer but was gratified at his attempt.
