Our surgical team provides over 3,000 surgeries, 100 open heart surgeries, replaces in-excess of 150 artificial joints, and conducts several DaVinci robotic urological surgeries each year. In the near future we will be moving into our new VA hospital facility where we will be utilizing industry leading state-of-the-art surgical facilities and equipment which will allow us to markedly improve our surgical capabilities to our Veterans.

Additionally, ECHCS is a teaching institution affiliated with the University of Colorado Medical School and has rotating medical students and surgical residents of all levels providing patient care. We conduct major research studies in surgical disease processes as part of our mission and we are a primary location for Podiatric Surgery residency and fellowship training.
