He excels at treating a multitude of complex musculoskeletal disorders involving the shoulder, knee, elbow and hip. He has additional expertise in advanced knee and shoulder arthroscopy, as well as complex shoulder reconstruction.

“I love the way that Orthopedic Sports Medicine marries human physiology, biomechanics and athletic performance,” Dr. Jones explains.

A third-generation physician and surgeon with a passion for helping and serving others, Dr. Jones shares he knew at a young age that medicine was his calling. He describes his care philosophy as “patient-first,” and believes the three most important traits of an expert provider are kindness, empathy and integrity.

“I strive to make sure that my patients feel heard and receive care of the highest quality,” Dr. Jones asserts.

While there, he acted as co-editor of the grand rounds column in Orthopedics Today and as a team physician for the Stanford University football and baseball teams. In addition, he provided on-field medical coverage for Denver Public Schools high school football games and supplied medical care to the professional San Francisco 49ers football team, Oakland Athletics baseball team and San Jose Earthquakes soccer team.

He completed residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora, having served as Chief Administrative Resident in his final year. Other accolades include the 2020 Resident Educator of the Year, 2019 Junior Resident of the Year and 2019 Compassionate Care awards.

Prior to graduating from Tulane University’s School of Medicine in New Orleans, Dr. Jones earned a bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine through Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.
