      I took my 9 yo to see Dr. Polousky after a failed diagnosis by another orthopedic dr. The failed diagnosis was a "stress injury" to the ankle bone. Dr. Polousky examined her, took x-rays and confirmed there was nothing wrong with the bone. The issue was a weak ankle that kept getting re-injured after an ankle sprain. After 3 weeks of physical therapy to strengthen the ankle tendons, my daughter is doing much better and on her way to a full recovery. Dr. Polousky was wonderful with her!

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Polousky's Care Philosophy

      In 2010, after starting and building a highly successful pediatric sports medicine program at The Childrens Hospital in Aurora, Colorado, Dr. Polousky, and his partner Dr. Brooke Pengel, moved their practice to The Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, founding the Rocky Mountain Youth Sports Medicine Institute. Both Drs. Polousky and Pengel shared a vision of creating a center focused solely on the unique musculoskeletal needs of children and young adults. We offer patient focused, individualized treatment for all of our patients, from the most routine sprain or broken bone to the most complicated limb reconstruction. Our entire staff is committed to our vision. We enjoy our patients and their families and it shows when you come our office. Secondary Specialties: Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction
