Had a great experience. Very thankful!
Having any kind of surgery is quite the undertaking, and finding the right surgeon for your procedure can be exhausting and nerve racking. After learning I had to undergo a complex knee surgery (torn meniscus, ACL, MCL, PCL), I did thorough research and narrowed my options down to 3 surgeons under 3 different companies. After meeting with all three, I can honestly say that Dr. Sterett is not only the best surgeon I could have gone with in the area, but the best surgeon in the country. Prior to scheduling my surgery, he diligently spent all the time I needed to understand and be comfortable with the procedure that would take place (rather than leaving me to a PA like other surgeons had done when meeting with them), he provided his cell phone in case I had any additional questions/concerns, and genuinely showed care and concern before, during and post-op. Unlike other facilities in the area where I felt like I was just another number in their clinical research and being pushed through the system, Vail Summit Orthopedics, Dr. Sterett and his team were extraordinary in every way. When it comes time for you to place your trust into someone for any type of knee surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Sterett. He and his team are quite simply the best.
Sterret operated on my shoulder. During therapy I realized I had lost sensitivity of my arm. When I asked him about it he did not return my call for 3 weeks. When he did, he told me he did and online survey with shoulder specialists and said it was best to wait. 3 years later I lost my biceps and feeling has not returned. Explored suing him, but Colorado Law only awards unto 350K for pain and suffering. Legal Counsel said the process would cost more. I guess all doctors make mistakes, but not even taking a call, that speaks to the moral character of this so call doctor.
Dr. Sterett is not only knowledgable, professional, and a dang good surgeon but he is also just a super nice, caring guy who understands the needs of the aggro athlete as well as the recreational athlete. He's worked wonders for my extremely damaged knee and I'm going in tomorrow for a full knee replacement with nothing but the best of hopes and confidence in my doctor and his awesome team.
Twelve years after a remarkable outcome after left knee reconstruction by Dr. Sterett, I returned to Vail specifically to see Dr. Sterett for surgery on my right knee. I respect that Dr. Sterett treats each of his patients like gold, not just the superstars under his care. He gives his world renowned surgical opinion and skills to each and every patient. He spent so much time explaining the procedure and the subsequent rehab that I felt very well prepared and confident in my recovery. I would recommend Dr. Sterett over any other knee surgeon and will definitely return if I ever need any additional treatment to my knees and I would send my family to him in a heartbeat.
Dr. Sterett did surgery on my son's knee, and it couldn't have been a better experience for us under the circumstances. He is kind, knowledgable and caring. His staff was very helpful and efficient. We would highly recommend him.
Dr. Sterett is the most compassionate and caring doctor I have ever known. He takes all the time needed and explains procedures in an understandable manner. You can be sure you are in capable and gentle hands when you have him as your surgeon. Highly, highly recommend.
What was the name of the surgery for bilateral patellar tendinitis that was performed with poor results?
HE IS truly the best surgeon around. Compassionate, caring, and skilled. I highly recommend him.
He has been wonderful to work with. He provides clear explanations and is patient with extra questions.
He is fabulous--one of a kind. Both my granddaughter and I love him. He is an excellent surgeon.
Arguably one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the world. He has performed 2 surgeries on me and one on my daughter. A truely great experience and a great doctor.
I broke my leg in ten parts last year and now I am walking!! Perfect for difficult surgeries, and great caring.
Doctor Sterett has repaired my daughter's knee twice. He is a great doctor with a wonderful bedside manner. Surgery isn't fun for the young athlete but he took great care of her!
I have gone to Dr. Sterett for many years as I am a former, non-professional athlete. Dr. Sterett is very skilled and heart-centered. I trust him implicitly. I have had three surgeries done by him with excellent outcomes. He is a doctor that is well-known and is very down-to-earth and approachable
I recomend Dr. Sterett to any one I meet that needs shoulder or knee surgery. My husband was a deputy with Mesa County Sheriffs Office and we have sent many people his way. I am 100 percent sure that without the expertise of Dr. Sterett I would not be able to walk on my knee correctly, or at all!!
My mom decided to take me to Dr. Sterett when I had told her that I no longer wanted to play sports because of the pain I felt in my knee after I played them. After being to COUNTLESS doctors I was doubtful that this one would find something wrong. To my surprise, Dr. Sterett said that he had found the problem and he was going to do what ever it takes to get me back to playing sports. That's exactly what he did and even though the recovery was tough, Dr. Sterett, kept positive and got me through it.
To give everyone a little background I started to see Dr. Sterett after being referred from several other orthopedic surgeons who did not know how to fix my knee which had developed osteoarthritis after a severe accident. Dr. Sterett has been working with me for the past 5 years and we have successfully gained full ROM and almost full function back in that leg without having to replace the knee, I'm way too young for a replacement. We still have a long road due to the previous damage but so far so good life is so much better after the repairs done by Dr. Sterett I skied waist/chest deep powder again this year and it was so much fun!
Dr. Sterett has performed several operations for myself and my family. I appreciate the expertise, time, and concern he has given to help me and my family make the right decision for our medical care and putting us back in shape to do the activities we love to do.
Dr. Sterett is fantastic! He listens and helps you get through what you need to, to get back out and do what you love!!!! Highly recommended from me.
I was very conflicted in my decision whether to go to the old practice I loved and trusted or to go to Dr. Sterrett at "the big clinic in town" for my knee repair. I am thrilled that Dr. Sterrett has moved to Vail Summit Orthopedics. Now I get to have the best of both worlds....a kind caring compassionate and highly skilled surgeon at the practice where my loyalties lie. If one is in the ski business you're eventually in the sore knee business. Dr. Sterrett and his team are tops!!!
Dr. Sterett is not only a world wide known orthopedic surgeon, but also my personal lifesaver!! Being born and raised in the Vail Valley instantly turned me into a competitive ski racer. In just 1 of my races, I tore my ACL, MCL, PCL, and meniscus in BOTH knees. Dr. Sterett put me back together. With over a year of physical therapy and continued follow ups with Dr. Sterett, I'm back up on the hill with the best of them. Never did I ever feel rushed during an appointment. He spends quality time with his patients. I'm so beyond grateful to be one of his patients. He is personable yet professional. I refuse to see any other orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Sterett is the best of the best!!
One of the best surgeons I have ever had. Kind, caring and professional
Great doctor! I had a completely shredded meniscus and somehow he managed to put it back together and in place. Three years later it never bothers me!
Dr. Sterett had to repair a surgery done elsewhere. He was wonderful, the surgery was extremely successful and I am back skiing and doing all the athletic things I had not been able to do for several years. His staff is very professional, his manner caring, and he was very willing to consult with me. even calling after hours to check on my recovery. He is an excellent physician.
