Dr. Brian Davis is a Colorado native and fellowship-trained orthopedic sports medicine and shoulder and elbow surgeon. Having completed extensive training in orthopedic sports medicine and shoulder and elbow surgery, Dr. Davis is highly skilled in treating a broad range of conditions of the shoulder, elbow, and knee.

This includes using modern techniques and minimally invasive surgery to help get patients back on their feet.

Dr. Davis earned his Bachelor of Science degree in biological science from Colorado State University in Fort Collins before attending the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora to complete his Doctor of Medicine degree. He then attended Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, for his orthopedic surgery residency, before pursuing an international surgical shoulder and elbow fellowship at the Lindenhofspital under Prof. Dr. med Ralph Hertel in Berne, Switzerland. Dr. Davis furthered his training with dual fellowships, starting with an orthopedic sports medicine fellowship at the UCHealth Steadman Hawkins Clinic Denver in Englewood, followed by another year of fellowship training in shoulder and elbow surgery at Western Orthopaedics/Denver Shoulder and Rose Medical Center in Colorado. During his sports medicine fellowship, he was a fellow team physician for the Denver Broncos and Colorado Rockies. He has also traveled internationally for slopeside coverage of US Ski & Snowboard team events and on medical and surgical mission trips to Haiti and Guatemala.

Using patient-centric, evidence-based care and compassion, Dr. Davis collaboratively works with his patients to help them understand their condition and get them back to their activities and sports through both nonsurgical and surgical methods. He uses the safest, latest, and most effective methods of treatment and offers a variety of surgical techniques to meet their individualized needs.
