Connected care

Our surgeons work as a team with other highly skilled health care professionals at our Rock Creek, Franklin, and Lone Tree Medical Offices. We continually communicate with your primary care provider, oncologist, and any other specialists who touch your care. We are all connected to each other — and you — through your electronic medical record, so we are on one page when it comes to your care.

Our surgeons regularly meet with doctors and staff across specialties to discuss treatments and share clinical expertise, experiences, and outcomes. At the Kaiser Permanente Colorado General Surgery Department, you have a team of compassionate surgeons who continue to grow their skills to better serve you.

The way we practice medicine at Kaiser Permanente gives us the freedom to focus on care, rather than running a business. We are free to practice medicine the way it is supposed to be practiced — with a focus on providing expert, compassionate care to you.

Every member of your care team is here to support you through your journey. When you have excellent doctors, truly connected care teams, advanced technology, and the right partners, you can expect great results.

Each year, Kaiser Permanente doctors are recognized as top doctors by their peers and publications such as 5280 magazine. Some have joined us from top-ranked academic training programs and successful private practices. Others have been honored for their invaluable contributions to medical advancements and new surgical techniques that help patients heal quickly and with less pain.

Our hospital partners have a track record of success and are often recognized as regional or national centers of excellence for their specialties. We also partner with national organizations, contributing to large, cutting-edge, research projects.
