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."
