    I was extremely pleased by how quickly I was able to get in for an appointment. I was treated courteously by everyone, the check in process was easy, the facility clean and modern, and Dr. Fitzgibbons was prepared, spent a lot of time with me, and gave me a clear diagnosis and helpful treatment directions. Great experience all around.

    I have had two knee surgeries and my husband had his knee and shoulder done by Dr. Fitzgibbons. He is professional and the experience at Front Range Orthopedics Surgery Center was as good as can be expected for surgery.

    Mike Kruise Longmont Co : Professional Guide 2017 When I went to Dr Fitz, it was for a second opinion, he was recommended to me by a friend. I was depressed about my rt knee and its condition. I could not even ride a bike. my knee was done no range of motion and a lot of pain. Dr Fitz walked me through all of my options. I went through the surgery in Oct 2016 it is now Jan 2017 90 days later. I have my life back I am pain free for the first time in over ten years. I cannot thank him enough.

    I had two knee replacement surgeries with Dr. Fitzgibbons in the period of three months. They were performed professionaly with no complications. My recovery has been rapid and relatively pain free. My physical therapists say that my recovery is way ahead of the curve. I can't be more pleased with the results.
