If you are experiencing one of the conditions above or another that affects your limbs or has caused you limb loss, please contact our Limb Restoration Nurse Navigator to discuss your health.
Since its creation in 2015, the University of Colorado Limb Restoration Program has been unique in its comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach. With the dedicated attention of our Nurse Navigator to facilitate communication and timely treatment, the CU Limb Restoration Program can combine the talents of many specialists and sub-specialists located at the UCHealth Anschutz Campus. This includes doctors from more than 10 specialties, advanced practice practitioners, a social worker, administrative support, and more. Our team meets every week to review and consult on all our cases, ensuring the best treatment plan for each patient. But the most important member of your limb restoration healthcare team is you. After you leave our campus in Colorado, we continue to communicate and collaborate with you and your local care team to ensure your safe transition back to your community.
Our team includes specialists in the fields of:
I am immensely grateful for my surgical outcome and the care I received from Dr. Stoneback and his team. I was referred to his clinic because my pelvis had several, severe nonunions after a failed PAO surgery. Following his guidance, the revision was successful and my pelvic nonunions healed.
Dr. Melton was very professional, caring and very knowledgeable during our visit. It felt like she truly cared about my issues.
Dr. Stoneback and the Limb Restoration team at UCHealth are top notch. After diagnosing my ulna as a nonunion, I had a surgery set for 2 weeks later. I don’t know what I would have done without Dr. Stoneback and his great team!
Excellent communication on all levels: receptionist, MA, nurse and doctor. One of the best team of medical professionals I have ever experienced. They all seemed knowledgeable and the doctor did an excellent job communicating a complex situation that I was able to understand.
Dr. Melton is the best. She always listens and very understanding. Easy to talk to and communication is amazing.
The entire team is involved in my care and all are genuinely concerned about my well-being. They always listen to my concerns and get back to me in a timely manner. They really make you feel like you are important to them.
I love the collaboration on the Limb Restoration team. I always feel listened to and like I am the only patient in the day. All of my questions are always answered and I am very confident I got the best care/surgery possible with this team. I am able to walk and climb stairs again! Yeah!
