Dr. Matthew Javernick, MD
I am a native Coloradan who loves all this state has to offer. I am happily married with 3 young girls that keep us up both very busy. We love spending time together outside and being active. I initially trained in Civil Engineering then transitioned to medicine / surgery. I completed my medical training through a military scholarship with my internship and residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. I have completed two combat tours in Afghanistan and served the Department of Defense for 17 years. I then completed a Sports Medicine and Shoulder Reconstruction Fellowship with CU Sports Medicine through the UC Health Medical System.

Care Philosophy

I love taking care of patients that want to get better and return to an active lifestyle. My goal is to provide efficient and timely care to all athletes and patients. I hope to foster an atmosphere of health and wellness and return athletes / patients to competition and life as soon as possible.

My personal experience with both traditional and non-traditional sports, as well as my time in the US Army with two combat deployments to Afghanistan, a residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center during the height of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, sets me apart from my peers. I have cared for athletes from Team USA, the World Class Athlete Program, University of Colorado Athletic programs, Denver University Athletic Programs, a variety of professional and sponsored athletes as well as local high school and recreational athletes.

One of the finest Doctors I have been treated by in many years. He is a thorough, careful and excellent surgeon. My left knee replacement went very well and I incurred no complications despite some challenging medical conditions. I greatly appreciate and respect his 'old fashioned' approach to medical care. He is an impressive surgeon.

Dr. Javernick performed an anterior total right hip replacement and I found him to be a very caring and likeable ... as well as competent. I went for a second opinion with another highly-rated provider who suggested a different course of action. I've been glad I put my trust in Dr. Javernick.
