“I saw Dr. Blackwood for a second opinion on a knee replacement I had done by another surgeon that has been giving me problems through no fault of the original surgeon that did my TKR. Dr. Blackwood was personable and very forthcoming and honest with me which I appreciated very much. I would highly recommend him.”

“Dr. Blackwood was very reassuring and professional. He went directly to my problem, previously misdiagnosed by other medical people, and provided immediate relief as well as a prognosis for the future of my knee. I felt better immediately!”

“Dr. Blackwood and his support staff were very responsive and helpful walking through a complicated process. I would highly recommend this doctor to anyone needing a joint replacement. For this type of surgery, you want the doctor that is the star in his area, and Dr. Blackwood is that. He is up to date and very conscientious on what each patient needs for success.”

“Dr. Blackwood did a TKR a few weeks ago. I was prepared for severe pain and a long recovery. I was amazed that after a few hours I was up and walking, no nausea after the surgery. I had the full attention of the staff and manageable pain when I got home. Dr. Blackwood saw my x-rays a few years ago and didn’t think the arthritis was bad enough for a revision at that time. He is not one to push surgery which I think is admirable. But this winter, the knee got worse, and we agreed it was time. I value a surgeon who is experienced and uses surgery as the last resort after other things have not given relief. This knee replacement was not as bad as I anticipated and I am grateful I had it done.”

“I think I have finally found a great doctor and surgeon. The doctor who put a 3” screw in my ACL to connect to my Tibia, told me after I spent ten weeks in a rehab nursing home, that he never expected my leg to be straight again. I was 50 years old, and my leg is straight! That was 16 years ago.”

“Dr. Blackwood and the staff were great. They explained everything very well and responded very quickly whenever I had questions or concerns. My new hip and new knee are doing wonderfully. I was young to need a joint replacement at 51, so I had expectations that my recovery would be speedy. I found that no matter your age or fitness, these are extensive surgeries that take a long time to recover. I am at nine months now, and I would say 100%. I can ride my bike as long and as hard as I want now. If you are thinking about a joint replacement, I would highly recommend Dr. Blackwood and the staff at BoulderCentre for Orthopedics.”

“I'm a 66-year-old female who has been suffering for many years with bone on bone knee pain. I tried Cartledge injections and arthroscopic surgery with no relief. Dr. Blackwood has done two knee replacements for me, one in March and the 2nd in June of this year. The method he uses with such expertise provided me with almost instant pain relief, set me ahead of the curve as far as PT and has given me a new lease on life. I'm so grateful to have found him!”

“I have the highest regard for Dr. Blackwood. My partial knee replacement went according to plan. I was walking without any assistive device after a week. After six weeks I was back to doing whatever I wanted, but without the pain, I had experienced before surgery. Dr. Blackwood and the entire staff at BoulderCentre for Orthopedics are professional, respectful and provide top-notch medical care.”

“In May I began to have groin pain and what felt like a hip flexor injury. By June, I was unable to walk more than 50 yards - pain was constant. I consulted with Dr. Brian Blackwood and scheduled the operation. Brian had done a partial knee replacement on me back in 2015 and I had complete confidence in him. Now, 7 months out from surgery I am 99% back to normal (the 1% is due to bursitis I incurred likely during rehab). Thus far, I've tested the hip on hikes, ice skating, skiing, golf and fly fishing. I'm back to doing what I love to do. I still marvel at modern medicine, and reflect on what it must've been like to be 66 years old and having no option but to live with pain until you died, as I'm sure millions of people had to endure in the past. I can't say enough about Boulder Centre for Orthopedics and Brian Blackwood; he has literally changed my life for the best. There's a 50-50 chance my other hip may have to be replaced and while I'm hoping not, you can bet if it does happen I'll place my full confidence in Brian.”

“Dr. Blackwood is simply amazing. Both of my knee replacements went so well and I couldn’t believe how quickly I was getting around unassisted. I am walking three miles most days now and am so grateful that I met him at one of his presentations in Ft Collins. I had ITP at the time and he said he would help me-he did!”

“Very good service from start to finish! Dr. Blackwood is a fantastic surgeon. I had both knees replaced, a year apart, and I have nothing negative to say about the presurgery or rehab. After I had my first knee done, I actually thought I could have had them both done at the same time! The recovery was remarkable! I have recommended Dr. Blackwood to several people and I know some have already been to see him. I think the entire Boulder Center staff is wonderful. I would go no other place - I hope I don't have to come back anytime soon, though.”

“I had a total knee replacement in June 2016. My experiences with Dr. Blackwood and all the staff were extremely positive. I felt well prepared for the procedure (with the possible exception of the level of pain I'd experience the first night at home after the nerve block wore off), all my questions were answered clearly and completely, and I felt well cared for all the way around. I'm now one and half years post-surgery now and the outcome has been great!”
