  • Valley View Celebrated Grand Opening of New Orthopedic Surgery Center in Basalt

On Wednesday, March 1, Valley View celebrated the grand opening of its new state-of-the-art orthopedic surgery center in Basalt, Colorado, with an open-house style event.

The community gathered for a behind-the-scenes tour of this incredible new facility to care for patients in the community with ValleyOrtho orthopedic surgeons and Valley View providers, a demonstration of the Mako Robotic Arm by Tomas Pevny, MD, refreshments, snacks and networking.

The center brings new options for all patients to receive expert care from orthopedic providers truly committed to the health and well-being of their patients. The surgery center is integrated with the latest technology, including a Mako Robotic Arm.

The Valley View Surgery Center at Basalt is located at 1450 East Valley Road, Suite 202 in Basalt. Part of the Midvalley Medical Center, the Valley View Surgery Center occupies the second floor of the building, encompassing over 6,700 sq. ft. Previously a surgical suite owned by other partners, Valley View purchased the space in 2020. Working with local partners, Snowmass Village F&M Architects and New Castle RS Wittrig Construction, Valley View completely remodeled and upgraded the space into a modern operating surgical room facility.

The center will launch with orthopedic care as its focus including simple fractures, sports medicine, hand surgery, foot and ankle surgery, and outpatient knee and hip joint replacements. Patients will have the opportunity to receive surgical expertise from ValleyOrtho’s dedicated group of fellowship-trained surgeons including Christopher George, MD; Ferdinand “Tito” Liotta, MD; Daniel O’Connor, MD; Tomas Pevny, MD; Michael Potter, MD; Noel Armstrong, DPM and Mark Purnell, MD.
