"Dr Mei Dan and his staff gave me back a huge part of my life that I had lost due to years of constant pain. Now, Thanks to him and his work I am running, racing and loving life again."
"I was a trail runner—not a particularly talented one, but a passionate one. When my right hip started hurting, I thought I had tendinitis, and the worst thing I could imagine was being told I couldn’t run for six to eight weeks. What I was actually told—that I had hip dysplasia and that I would need two major surgeries to restructure my hip socket and femur—was devastating. Choosing to go through with the surgery was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made, but choosing the right surgeon was a no-brainer. Dr. Mei-Dan took me seriously as an athlete and cared as much as I did about getting me back on the trails. And he’s clearly some kind of genius in the O.R. It’s amazing to have correct hip mechanics for the first time in my life! My PT, Sue Torrence, is also a rockstar, and deserves all the credit for rebuilding me back into my old adventure-machine self. I’m now seven months post-op and I’m running Sanitas after work, climbing 14ers, mountain biking, and (the best part) plotting next year’s race calendar. I know my left hip will need the same surgeries in the future, and no way would I go anywhere else."

Dr. Omer Mei-Dan performed a labral repair and micro-fracture surgery on my left hip in September of 2014. At the time of the surgery the pain in my hip kept me from being able to play lacrosse for the University of Denver. After I was able to walk without crutches I immediately noticed a difference and could walk pain free. Within a months after surgery I was back to running and upping my rehab in order to get back on the field to play the game I love, feeling better and healthier then I had in several years. Dr. Mei-Dan and the entire staff at CU Sports Medicine where amazing in taking care of my body and getting me back on the field.
"After 2 years of hip pain that limited my activities, caused me anxiety and really affected my quality of life I was diagnosed with impingement and labrl tears in both of my hips. Three months after bilateral Hip arthroscopy by Dr. Mei Dan I was back to light running and in the following months, after methodical rehab, I climbed 3 14er’s including one which required steep ice climb. It felt so GREAT! I never thought I could do this again and cried at the top!"
"Dr. Mei-Dan’s precision surgery and beautiful artistry has extended my professional artistic career as a Modern Dancer after I experienced a full thickness hamstring rupture. Six months after my surgery I was back in the dance studio creating and dancing….doing what I love to do the most!"
