COLORADO SPRINGS – July 10, 2018 – The Colorado Center of Orthopaedic Excellence (CCOE) is pleased to welcome Dr. Jason Scott Weisstein to its orthopaedic team, adding a whole new dimension in the orthopaedic care provided by the practice.
A renowned orthopedic surgeon who specializes in joint replacement and tumor surgery, Dr. Weisstein’s interest lies in the restoration of function in bones and joints that are in jeopardy from arthritis, tumors, dysplasia, trauma or other conditions.
Dr. Weisstein comes to the Colorado Center of Orthopaedic Excellence after having directed one of the largest joint replacement programs in California, and most recently, as Director of the Center for Joint Preservation and Replacement at the internationally esteemed Paley Institute in Florida. In addition to regularly teaching other surgeons around the country about minimally invasive anterior hip replacement and knee replacement surgery, he has taught residents and fellows state of the art orthopaedic surgery at major academic medical centers, including the University of Washington Medical Center, one of the top orthopaedic surgery institutions in the nation.
A native of southern California, Dr. Weisstein graduated with honors as valedictorian from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. He also received a Masters of Public Health at New York’s Columbia University. From his work and research, he found his niche in orthopedics.
Dr. Weisstein is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, and is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons.
Why CCOE? Dr. Weisstein explains that CCOE provides expert care in a variety of orthopedic specialties and sports medicine, but there was no specialist on staff whose main area of expertise was primary and revision hip and knee replacement, or bone and soft tissue tumor surgery. To fill that need, CCOE recruited Dr. Weisstein, who says he “couldn’t be happier to be in Colorado at CCOE. The medical and office staff here are some of the best I have ever seen. They are the kind of medical professionals that I would want to treat my own family,” he added.
David Lewis, CEO of CCOE is excited for the new dimension in care Dr. Weisstein brings to the practice. “We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Weisstein to CCOE, and are excited to have an expert in primary and complex revision joint replacement as well as bone and soft tissue tumor care join our team. Dr. Weisstein’s expertise and sub-specialty interests bring a whole new level of care to our practice”.
Described by his peers as “a doctor’s doctor,” Dr. Weisstein says his focus is on treating his patients as “unique individuals” and looks forward to making a difference in each of his patient’s road to wellness. Above all, he values the doctor-patient relationship and helping people restore function and alleviate pain.
