Saving Limbs and Lives Everyday®
Consultation

The physicians of The Denver Clinic for Extremities at Risk will speak directly with physicians looking for options regarding a difficult patient problem.  By contacting our referral coordinator at 1-800-262-5462 we can determine how to best address a request.  This may be a physician to physician phone call, or we may request that a patient's images be sent to the coordinator so the physician can review images before making a recommendation.

Contact us for more information.
