About Me

"The ability to dramatically improve a patient's quality of life is what I enjoy most about orthopedic surgery and particularly joint replacement. I believe that each patient's presentation is unique and requires an individual treatment plan. My fellowship has taught me the most modern as well as fundamental and classic treatment options in adult reconstruction and joint replacement."

I am so grateful to Dr.Assini. My total knee replacement has given me my active lifestyle back. At 4 weeks post surgery I was snowshoeing, at 7 weeks I was cross country skiing, at 8 weeks I was downhill skiing on greens, at 12 weeks I was hiking and walking up to 5 miles, and I am now speed walking to complete the runs I missed so much. I just completed the Cherry Creek Sneak. My speed walking time was better than some runners. I am active and happy on my new knee and can now enjoy being the ActiveGrand with my grandchildren again. Thank You, Dr. Assini.

Dr. Assini was easy to talk to and he explained everything he was going to do. When I came down with the skin infection he was concerned and had me take an extra week of antibiotic. He has spent extra time for appointments.

I’m a retired PERA teacher who moved to Texas two and a half years ago. I chose Dr. Assini because each time I mentioned his name, I heard nothing but genuine respect and appreciation of his skills as a surgeon. Now that I’ve had my knee replaced by Dr. Assini, I can and will express not only respect for his talent, but much gratitude.

This so called surgeon mutilated my mother. Hip surgery. Received pseudomonas infection and still has 9 months later. Received hemotoma. Drained incision 4 times and had to remove replaced hip and now living with spacer. Can't remove due to constant infection. Her quality of life is worse than before. Very careless an unconcerned.

I have had only a single appointment but was pleased with the time Dr. Assini spent with me, his candor, and his demeanor. I have needed to have a TKR for over six years and had visited two other surgeons, but never had a good feeling about it. I was sold on Dr. Assini after the first one.

Dr. Assini and his team were stellar in handling my experience, getting two knee replacements (four weeks apart!). The entire practice is very professionally operated with seamless follow-up and great support and responsiveness along the way.

My daughter plays travel softball and we were attending the Colorado Sparkler last summer. We were in town from Las Vegas Nevada and our daughter fractured her femur while playing. Obviously this was a traumatic experience for her and our family we were far from home and out of our minds. Hours after being admitted to the hospital Dr Assini visited us and explained everything and performed the procedure perfectly. We feel so lucky to have fallen into his capable hands at a trying time. WeloveDoc

Dr. Assini has done an awesome job of explaining my options, managing my expectations and ultimately getting two more years out of very bad knees. I am scheduled for a replacement next month and could not be happier with the progress going into the procedure. Thank you!

Felt very comfortable with Dr Assini. Have had knee problems for years and he told me what the problem is with no pressure. Laid out the options advised what he felt was the correct action and left the decision up to me.

My right hip replacement surgery was done on 11/13/17. As of today I am very pleased with the results. As I know from my previous left hip replacement and right shoulder replacement surgeries done by OPC, it will continue to get better and better over the next few months. Surgery well done. Thank you.
