Rueben Nair, MD
I strive to provide top-quality care to all patients with respect, compassion, and attention to detail. As one of the former team physicians for the Denver Broncos and the Colorado Rockies, and as a current physician member of the US Ski and Snowboard Association, I am passionate about sports medicine and the prevention or management of sports-related injuries. I treat every patient as though they were a professional athlete, with a goal of optimal recovery. My approach is to educate and involve the patient in their clinical process, focusing on patient-directed care.
I utilize evidence-based medicine and my Steadman Hawkins Clinic Denver Sports Medicine fellowship training to treat injuries with state-of-the-art techniques. My surgical and medical interests include arthroscopy of the shoulder, knee and elbow, ACL reconstruction, cartilage restoration, meniscus repairs, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, rotator cuff repairs, shoulder stabilization, total knee arthroplasty, Tommy John elbow surgery and hip arthroscopy with labral repair/reconstruction.
