I first met Dr. Provencher when I was experiencing right shoulder pain after weight lifting. He quickly diagnosed the problem and we decided that surgery was the proper course. The surgery went great and I had almost zero post-operative pain. He sent a video message to me after the surgery detailing his findings and his expected outcomes. I was so touched that he took the time to do this and it added a personal touch to an already excellent experience. As an internal medicine provider myself, I have been on the other side of health care for many years, and I cannot think of a more positive experience than the one I had with Dr. Provencher. Thank you so much to the whole team at Steadman. I will be referring my orthopedic patients to you based off of the wonderful care that I received. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Dr. Provencher is not only one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the world, he is at the forefront of the invention and creation of the new orthopedic treatments used world wide. Athletes from around the world come to him for treatment in order regain their ability to compete on an Olympic or Professional level. There is a reason that star football players, golfers, skiers etc come to him for treatment. I was lucky enough to find him when I needed an operation on my arm. In a bicycle accident, I had lost the use of my dominant arm. Dr. Provencher operated on me with a special surgery that he had help perfect. I now have complete use of my arm and my life back. If you are facing surgery make sure you have the best person operating on you and for my money it is Dr. Provencher.
Dr. Provencher and his entire team are the epitome of what healthcare professionals should aspire to be. Throughout my entire experience, I could feel their empathy, I could hear and see their expertise, and I was treated like family. There is no better complex shoulder, knee, and sports surgeon in the world. My story:
As a former competitive hockey player, I've had my fair share of injuries - specifically on my right shoulder. During my career, I suffered a severe injury to my right shoulder causing not only a collarbone break, but also causing instability in my shoulder joint and my sternoclavicular joint. From there, the wear and tear from continued play created more issues relating to chronic subluxation and dislocation, bone loss, arthritis, and tissue damage. Needless to say I was a mess - and this is wear Dr. Provencher and his outstanding team stepped in.
I have been a patient of Dr. Provencher's for 5 years. He performed the first of two complex shoulder stabilization surgeries on me in 2017, to address the issues in my shoulder joint. As the issues with my sternoclavicular joint grew worse (since I elected not to have surgery on it, although recommended), he then performed a complex "SC" stabilization in 2021 - my second and final repair. Both surgeries were a complete and total success and Dr. Provencher has given me a huge part of my life back.
For years, I coped with acute arm and shoulder pain. I was unable to do the things I loved most: golf, tennis, swim, even work, and most importantly, play and coach hockey. They were some of the most down years of my life. Dr. Provencher, Tyler, Scott, Robin, Katie, Sam, Erica, Zach, and more, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Dr Provencher and his team are absolutely world class. I fly fighter jets professionally, and my personal life is full of outdoor athletic endeavours to include daily workouts, runs, hikes, biking, and my favorite hobby, 30 plus days per winter of downhill and backcountry skiing. So, when I tore my ACL, MCL, and Meniscus on the slopes last winter it was pretty tough to be unable to do my job or favorite pastimes. I researched for a while, and every medical professional that I talked to recommended Dr Provencher. I could not be happier with my experience. From my first appointments, to my surgery, to all my follow up calls and appointments, Dr Provencher and his team have gone above and beyond to provide me with the best surgery and care that I could have possibly asked for. My knee feels very strong, and my PT is very happy with the strength and flexibility that I have achieved thus far. I am flying again, and I plan to be back on the mountain skiing this winter. I would enthusiastically recommend surgery from Dr Provencher if you get injured living an athletic lifestyle and want to return to sports better and stronger than you were before you got injured!
Dr. Provencher and his team at the Steadman CLinic were just amazing. From the time that I booked my appointment until I left the clinic the experience was exceptional. I had intermittent shoulder pain and it was terrible at night. I was really worried that I had some serious issue and needed surgery. I arrived at 245 PM and left the clinic at about 600 PM. I had an XRay, consultation with first his PA (Scott) and then with Dr P, then an MRI, then another consultation with his PA and a shot in my shoulder. What would normally have been 3 visits was taken care of in one, AND today I have almost no pain. What a team! Everybody that I interacted was friendly, professional, patient and totally responsive. I felt like I was an Olympic athlete getting super personalized service. Thanks you all! Dr P was great, but I give more credit to him for creating such a great culture than for his exceptional medical skills.
Dr. Provencher and his team ended years of suffering and inadequate sleep that I had due to sever shoulder glenohumeral arthritis. Prior to surgery, day of surgery and post-surgery I was treated with nothing but respect, professionalism and afforded plenty of time. All of my questions were answered and there was zero anxiety working with the office staff, headed up by Robin… Thank You Robin!
Take another look at Dr. Provencher’s biography and what you’ll see is decades worth of work in the never-ending pursuit of excellence and patient care. The man and the team that surrounds him are truly amazing people, they changed my life!
Give Team Provencher a call!
Dr.Provencher performed surgery (rotator cuff repai) on my left shoulder. He and his team were wonderful. Dr. Provencher has a great ability to relate to his patients and an ability to present the correct treatment option without the feeling that you are being pushed into a decision. Pain control was marvelous. I required no pain medication for the first three days and only a couple of pain pills after that. Now at 14 weeks after surgery, I am ready to go back to normal activity as soon as I am allowed. Great range of motion! Couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks Dr Provencher and your team.
Dr Provencher did an amazingly good job on both my shoulders, with the hemicap resurfacing. I’m doing great! I need to have my neck and back fixed at The Steadman Clinic,and then I hope to be pain free entirely for the first time in years..
After years of slow deterioration, I went to a local Denver Orthopedic. As I left the exam, I was muttering under my breath: "what an A-hole." So I started searching and ended up with the Steadman Clinic and Dr. Provencher. My initial experience was about as night and day as possible. The time, patience and detailed explanations led me to ask if he could operate later that day! I was very excited for the operation. I went from constant pain, difficulty in sleeping, unable to do many weight training movements and no longer able to pursue my passion of bowhunting. I am (as I write this, I am 12 months and 7 months post-op) pain free, I have amazing range of motion, no issues sleeping, loving my weight training....and, I am back to shooting my bow with strength and without pain or fatigue. Dr Provencher listened to my goals and desires and has fullfilled my wishes. My recommendation is to consider a Doctor who does your operation many, many times a month.....not just once in a while. This Doctor and clinic is as good as they get. Their post op success is industry leading. The location may not be convenient, but the lasting success of the experience will having you pinching yourself for having made the right decision.
With my shoulder continuing to loss motion, strength, and flexibility, I visited Dr. Provencher. The first thing he does is taking the time to get to know the patient. After our first visit he was confident he knew the correct procedure to get me back to where I wanted to be. Due to past injuries from rodeo and heavy weight lifting, I had a worn-out shoulder. He choose a shoulder replacement procedure that would allow to me to regain strength, motion, and flexibility. Soon after the operation I was nordic skate skiing. 6 month’s post operation, I’m riding my motocross bike, stacking hay above my head, riding my mtb and rode bike, and have gained near full strength. There is not pain. It’s better than I ever imagined and I’m only 7 months post operation. He’s the best surgeon out there.
