St. Thomas More Hospital offers a collaborative approach to specialized orthopaedic services in Fremont County. Community orthopaedic surgeons Jacob Patterson, M.D., and Eric Carlson, M.D., now collaborate with Dr. Keith Minihane and the St. Thomas More Orthopaedic Clinic.

    All orthopaedic surgical procedures that are indicated from the St. Thomas More Orthopaedic Clinic will be performed at St. Thomas More Hospital. Follow-up care will also be provided at St. Thomas More Hospital with the goal of keeping patients as close to home as possible for their care. Hospital patient rounding and routine follow-up care is also provided here in Cañon City.
