About Dr. Larry Lee

Denver, CO Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr. Lee is deeply passionate about restoring quality of life to his patients. He believes that surgery is only one part in treating the patient as a whole person. As a marathoner, he has seen firsthand how injuries can take not just a physical toll, but a psychological one as well, so helping a person get back on their feet is the first step on the road to physical and emotional recovery.
Surgically, he reviews the latest techniques, including motion preservation, artificial disc replacements, minimally invasive surgical techniques, scoliosis correction and revision spine surgery.
