Dr. Wilkins unwrapped a large neurofibroma sheath around from the inside of my right ankle. It has been around 15 yrsrs since. My foot is doing good. ALOT OF CRAMPING FOR A YEAR. BUT I PURCHASED A VIBRATING MASSAGER AND I WORKED OUT THE THE CRAMPS IN MY WHOLE LEG. AFTER THAT MY CRAMPES DIED DOWN AFTER THAT YEAR & AM DOING WELL.

Dr. Wilkins is a caring,considerate,and passionate Physician. He uses his knowledge of rare forms of cancer providing you with all possibilities of care and treatment in an individual approach. His knowledge puts you at ease allowing a sense of relief being in good hands. I would highly recommend Dr. Wilkins, as he always considers the patients feelings when coming up with a treatment plan. Patients are his number one priority and he expresses that in the compassion he has for his patients.

What can one say about a surgeon who saved my leg from amputation due to osteomyelitis (bone infection) which likely was the result of a previous surgeon's work besides thank you? Not just Dr. Ross Wilkins, but his medical and office team are great, knowledgable and caring people who go out of they way for their patients needs. Unfortunately, I have needed a lot of visits to a lot of physicians and I can say from experience, not all are good, and very few are as excellent as this group

I am a cancer survivor. In 2013 my doctor in Massachusetts told me if I had any problems with my leg to go see Dr Wilkins. I did and he had to perform 2 surgeries on my leg. Each time he showed compassion and provided me with all the information about my surgeries in a professional yet easy to understand manner. He really cares about his patients and wants them to live a successful life. I am fortunate to not only have him as my doctor but as my friend.

Dr. Ross Wilkins is my hero. Diagnosed with sarcoma tumor in right arm in 2004. I still have my arm! He is a superb surgeon, a marvelous Doctor, and a real friend. There is no one else like him. I was so lucky to find him. I went to Mayo for second opinion-they told me to stay in Denver and be treated by Dr. Wilkins. Best advice I have ever received. Limb preservation is his specialty!

Over 4 years ago after getting a MRSA infection and undergoing many surgeries, I finally found Dr. Wilkins last year. He saw me immediately and went over my case history. He said that he could save my knee from amputation and probably my life. He did remove my prothesis's and put in a cement spacer coated with special antibiotics. Afer 3 months that was replaced with a prosthesis that really works. Now, after 9 months, I am having a normal life walking, golfing and just enjoying life??????
