COVID-19 Update From Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado

Important Information Regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado.

Since we have been dealing with COVID-19 for quite some time now, we wanted to update you on the ongoing efforts at Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado to keep you safe.

We continue to follow strict guidelines on how we clean and disinfect our practice to ensure it is safe for our patients and staff. We are still offering all patient the opportunity to check in from their car and have as close to a contactless visit as we can possibly provide and still provide you high quality medical care.

We continue to ask all patients if they are having any cold or flu symptoms or have traveled abroad recently to reschedule their appointments to ensure no patients or staff members are exposed to any illnesses. We also continue to screen patients when they have checked-in to ensure everyone is following our guidelines.

If you have had a positive COVID-19 test, we are following all the public health guidelines to treat you as soon as we possibly can in a safe manner.

Several of our providers and staff have already been vaccinated, and we continue to work towards giving everyone in our practice the opportunity to get vaccinated.

If your foot and ankle condition does require a surgical procedure, we are still able to help you.  For surgeries that are non-emergent and scheduled a little ahead of time, we are having all patients get a pre-op COVID-19 test to ensure that we can safely perform the procedure for you. 

We are seeing some patients wait to get medical care.  Unfortunately, the delay in treatment can be harmful, so it's important to know that we can still safely help you with all your foot and ankle needs.

We thank all of you for being our patients and we are committed to providing a great medical experience that is also safe for everyone. We are committed to providing you the best quality of foot and ankle care in the Colorado Springs region.

Thank you,
Foot and Ankle Institute of Colorado
