Welcome to BoulderCentre for Orthopedics & Spine


Our specialty-trained foot doctors at BoulderCentre for Orthopedics & Spine are the area's distinguished experts in the diagnosis and treatment of patients' foot injuries and conditions.

Made up of more than 30 different joints and numerous bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles, foot pain is common and affects millions of people. One of the reasons pain occurs is from the added stress the feet endure from bearing the full weight of the body. Pain can also be the result of a traumatic injury or the wear and tear from aging. Patients should seek medical care from a foot and ankle doctor who can diagnose foot injuries and conditions and provide treatment options for pain relief.
