Care Philosophy

I believe that a physician is not merely someone who provides a diagnosis and prescription, but someone who becomes a partner with a patient and their families to guide them through the treatment and recovery process. As your physician, you can expect me to not only be available to answer your questions, but also to provide the highest quality and most advanced orthopedic care. This includes arthroscopic and minimally-invasive techniques that facilitate an expedited recovery.

Patient Comments (3)
Aurora Colorado |
I went to Dr. Faulkner for a acl replacement and from the 1st visit he was exceptional. Very friendly and professional. He took the time to listen and really try to understand all of my concerns. His assistant Loura is a little bit hard to deal with. She takes a while to call you back if at all and can be a little rude on the phone. She constantly makes excuses about why she didn't call back or how they were too busy. I really like Dr. Faulkner but not so sure I would recommend him due to her.

I have been a past patient of Colorado Orthopedic Consultants, this was my first time seeing Dr. Faulkner and it was a great experience. His office staff are great, very professional and patient being that I was going through Workers Comp. My shoulder surgery went great, no complications. I would definitely recommend Dr. Faulkner to family and friends.

Dr. Faulkner did my rotator cuff surgery without doing minimal trauma to the surrounding tissue. This contributed to my full recovery in less than 3 months.
