Dr. Murken's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Murken "Roger E. Murken, MD is a board-certified Denver orthopedic surgeon specializing in foot and ankle surgery. He completed his medical school training at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in 2001. Dr. Murken then completed his orthopedic residency at the University of Colorado in 2006 and his foot and ankle surgery fellowship at Harbor/UCLA and Balance Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center, Long Beach, California in 2007. Dr. Murken specializes in adult and pediatric general orthopedics as well as fractures and disorders of the foot and ankle. Prior to joining Panorama, he practiced at Torrey Pines Orthopedic Medical Group in La Jolla, California. Dr. Murken believes, "A patient's needs should be met through a detailed evaluation and treatment plan that is designed to help him or her achieve and maintain an active lifestyle while minimizing pain. Although surgery is sometimes necessary, many orthopedic injuries can be treated without surgery. I will use my knowledge and training to provide leading-edge medical care with traditional treatment methods." Dr. Murken enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, snowboarding, downhill skiing, flyfishing, mountain biking and distance running."

Patient Comments (12)
in Denver, CO |
He spent a lot of time with me going through all of my symptoms/complaints. Never felt rushed. So glad I found him!
in Centennial |
Doctor saw me within 5 minutes. Dr. Murken had a very nice bedside manner. He provided a sense of confidence in his knowledge and ability. Could not have had a better experience.
in Aurora Co |
Friendly, professionals, knowledgeable, caring and compassionate
in Golden, Colorado |
He is thorough. He explained everything so we could understand the diagnosis and treatment. His bedside manner was kind and caring.
in Aurora, Co |
Although I am partial because I worked with him at hospital for a while several years ago, he is genuinely concerned and has a great rapport with patients. Office staff are very nice and helpful!
in Highlands Ranch, CO |
Dr. Murken took time to listen and respond to all of my 12 year olds questions during our visit. He was very kind and didn't seem rushed. My daughter feels so comfortable moving forward with her surgery thanks to Dr. Murken and the staff at Panorama.
in Golden, CO |
Dr. Murkin got behind in clinic with some complicated patients before me, however he was quick and thorough with his assessment in getting me the care I needed to get my cellulitis properly treated. Excellent, professional care by him and his staff.
in Littleton, CO |
I've been to Dr Murken previously for concerns related to my ankle/foot. Each time he has been very attentive to my explanations of my symptoms to best offer advice on treatment. Options he has suggested were to benefit me in order to prevent a medical procedure.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Murken was thorough, kind and professional. He diagnosed my problem immediately and offered several options for treatment. I was very impressed with him and his staff.
in Denver, CO |
Dr Murkin provided detailed explanation about my ankle issue and provided follow-up information without being overly cautious. I felt his approach was in line with what I wanted out of our meeting.
in Centennial, CO |
I am hoping he reads this post as I am in pain daily and can barely walk or do my job. I am hoping that Doctor Murken will hopefully learn from this and the next patient he will not make the same mistake. I was diagnosed to have Lipomas on the Ball of both of my feet. Three specialist have looked into it. I was misdiagnosed. The lipomas that were removed were actually my fat pad that cannot be replaced. I am in pain daily and can barely walk. The nerve pain from this is crippling sometimes
in Denver, CO |
I do NOT recommend Dr. Roger Murken (Panorama Orthopedics, Colo). He did a routine bone spur removal surgery, and I am going to have to have another surgery to clean up Dr. Murken's work. When I had problems after the surgery, we met and he suggested an injection (a band-aid approach, and one that my family is deathly allergic to). When I declined, he said, There's nothing more I can do for you and walked out of the room. Haven't heard from him since. Find another doc for foot surgeries.
