Denver Health Medical Center, formerly Denver General Hospital, has been an integral component of the University of Colorado since the founding of the medical school. DHMC is home to the Rocky Mountain Regional Trauma Center, the only Academic Level I Trauma Center in the region. DHMC is an internationally recognized trauma service, which provides multidisciplinary collaborative management of patients sustaining both blunt and penetrating injuries. The scope of neurosurgical services performed includes stabilization of spinal injuries involving all levels of the spinal column, and surgical management of traumatic brain injury.
The Rocky Mountain Region is fortunate to have The Children’s Hospital the only designated Level I Trauma Center in the region devoted and equipped to provide the highest standard of care for children. The five pediatric neurosurgeons affiliated with the Children’s Hospital of Denver are full-time faculty in the Department of Neurosurgery, having the full resources of a top academic department.
