Dr. Armando Vidal and his team are the best! I had an ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair. Besides the excellent work Dr. Vidal and his team performed on my knee, they really took the extra mile to make me feel comfortable before during and after the surgery. They are truly caring professionals. Thank you!

Amazing Surgeon with Great Bedside Manner

I had an ACL reconstruction and medial meniscus repair done by Dr. Vidal, and I could not be happier with the care I received. He was attentive and had a great bedside manner, and the surgery went extremely well. Since moving away from Denver and having had follow-up care with other doctors, I appreciate even more the care I received by Dr. Vidal and his team. Truly top-notch.
