Man and machine for joints lifestyle


Colorado Advanced Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, and Spine continue to experience exceptional growth with excellent patient outcomes.

The demand for Dr. Kevin Borchard’s skilled surgical techniques and extensive fellowship training combined with Stryker’s Mako Robotic Arm creates a dynamic team that brings patients from across the country to Meeker, Colorado for his orthopedic services.

“I use the same surgical technique that I learned at the New England Baptist Hospital during my fellowship in Boston. During my fellowship, I performed over 900 complex joint replacement surgeries with some of the best surgeons in my field, ”said Dr. Borchard. “With the Mako Robotic Arm, I now have an incredibly powerful tool that perfectly complements these techniques. The difference was remarkable. I see less bleeding during surgery, less swelling after surgery, and much faster recovery. “

Josh Hardy, PT, DPT owner and physical therapist at Monument Physical Therapy in Grand Junction, is also amazed at the results he’s got with Dr. Borchard’s patient sees. “I’ve been a physiotherapist in outpatient orthopedics for almost 10 years,” explains Hardy. “I’ve rehabilitated hundreds of knee replacements. Dr. Borchard and his team have far exceeded the expectations I have seen in patients over the years. His patients show up at their first therapy session with less pain and more movement than any patient I have ever seen – they can break off their crutches, crutches, or canes much sooner than I ever thought possible. “

According to Stryker’s patient data, Colorado Advanced Orthopedics’ Mako-assisted surgeries increased 61% from 2019 to 2020 with no infection rate occurring. Kristen Eskelson, Director of Infection Prevention and Control at Pioneers Medical Center, says, “We have not had any infections at orthopedic surgical sites and this data is being reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).”

In addition to Dr. Borchard includes the Colorado Advanced Orthopedics scholarship-trained orthopedic team: Dr. Dr. Greg Martyak, MD, a board certified orthopedic surgeon with a scholarship in hand and upper extremity; Dr. Justin Grant, DO, CAQSM, a certified family doctor with a sports medicine scholarship; Clinton Devin, MD, a board certified orthopedic surgeon with fellowship training in complex spinal reconstruction, and Dr. Mark Purnell, MD, a board certified orthopedist with a sports medicine scholarship.

“If I am Dr. Seeing Borchard’s name on an incoming patient’s prescription makes me immediately excited because I know my job will be a lot easier from start to finish, ”says Hardy. “I can focus on the patient’s individual goals sooner than ever before (hiking, biking, fishing, gardening, horseback riding, hitting the ground to play with their grandchildren).”

Dr. Borchard has put together an excellent orthopedic team that makes a significant contribution to excellent patient care.

“Despite my health concerns, my knee surgery went very well and the recovery was better than expected,” said Gail S., who had a full knee replacement last year. “It is a great pleasure for me to see the excellent work of Dr. To acknowledge Kevin Borchard and his staff. The entire Ortho team did an excellent job before, during and after the operation. “
