I went to Dr. Millett after 7 knee surgeries (6 on my right and 1 on my left) and had seen 11 different surgeons who all refused to remove femur metal from my right leg. I am highly allergic to metal and the chronic pain was leaving me bedridden for 3.5wks out of a month. He personally wrote me back on my inquiry, listened to my concerns, scheduled my surgery within a week (due to insurance issues) and personally followed up with my recovery. The level of patient care from Dr. Millett and his ENTIRE team is above any care I have ever received in my 20 years of dealing with orthopedic surgeons. There are not enough words to describe the level of care, dedication and professionalism you receive from Dr. Millett and his staff.
My only disappointment is that I did not find him sooner!!!
After 40 plus years of rock climbing and mountaineering behind me I had worn out a shoulder. Not wanting to give up my passion for high places, I researched and learned that Dr. Millett is a talented and exceptional surgeon, someone who I could trust to get me back on the rock. I made the absolute right decision.
My shoulder replacement is a huge success. Dr. Millett and his team were amazing every step of the way. From my initial consultation to my final check-off, post-op visit, I was given the very best of care. Three months out from surgery I'm ready to start climbing and mountain biking once again.
I had sent Dr. Millett a text thanking him for his tremendous skill on my behalf. His response to me was that it was a team effort. His self effacing demeanor is truly admirable, and speaks volumes about the respect that he gives to his patients and to his team.
I know that when I climb or mountain bike in the future, I will think of Dr. Millett and his team. Thank you so much for helping me to get back on the rock.
I rely on my life-long habit of fly fishing for psychological support. Dr. Millett reconstructed my casting shoulder a year ago. I now have tremendous, pain-free flexibility and strength after a failed surgery in Michigan. He's remarkable, and has truly saved an essential activity for me.
Dr. Millett is a world class surgeon located in a world class facility in beautiful Vail, CO. What more can you say? Well, Dr. Millett is also a very empathetic and caring person with a fantastic team of assistants and supporting staff who all take extra time and attention to explain the details and answer any questions.
The whole Steadman Clinic experience with Dr. Millett far exceeded all of my expectations. I could not believe how seamless the whole process was starting with my first visit with Dr. Millett, through the surgery scheduling, operation, post-op, and post-surgery follow-up visits.
I lived for almost 15 years with a painful and weak right shoulder that significantly impacted my lifelong love of tennis and even daily activities. After several prior diagnoses and surgeries (shoulder and spinal) by other surgeons over the years, Dr. Millett correctly identified my rather unusual shoulder issue as Suprascapular Neuropathy (SSN). He was able to perform the required delicate procedure to repair my SSN as well as repair other issues within my shoulder that required attention. I am now pain free with great range of motion and starting down the path to recover the muscle mass and strength that I had lost over many years of nerve impingement. For me, this has truly been one of those rare life changing events.
I give Dr. Millett, his entire team, and the Steadman Clinic my highest recommendations. I can't adequately express my most sincere thanks to Dr. Millett and his entire team.
After being told I should have a shoulder replacement by another surgeon, Dr Millett performed the CAM procedure on my right shoulder in May 2018. I traveled from PA. This is a miracle. I now have full range of motion. I can now sleep, dress, drive, along with all the daily activities I was previously unable to do. Thank you Dr Millett!!!
Dear Dr. Millett,
It was nearly one year ago that I came to you with a tibial plateau fracture in my left leg and a stress fracture in my right leg, injuries I sustained while completing the 2017 Boston Marathon.
I am thrilled to report to you that I finished my 24th consecutive Boston Marathon yesterday in 4:11:19, despite the 40 degree temp, 20-40mph headwind and non-stop downpour. And the best part is that I ran pain-free for the entire race!! Since I only needed to finish in 4:25:00 to qualify for my 25th next year, I am now able to look ahead to next year with great excitement and anticipation.
There are no words that can fully express my appreciation for all you have done for me. Please know how deeply grateful both Rick and I are for your expert surgical skills as well as your true caring and compassion for your patients.
I'll be dropping by the clinic in the near future to say hello.
Warm personal regards,
Steamboat Springs, CO

I’m here skiing in Vail and wanted to take a pause to mention how grateful I am to Dr. Peter Millett. April will mark 3 years since he did my allograph reconstruction, My rotator cuff was beyond repair and after Dr.Millett’s skilled surgery, I am pain free, playing golf, skiing, and loving life. His staff is excellent and attentive and the clinic is first rate. Thank you thank you!
Dr. Millet is indeed an AMAZING surgeon!! After years of dealing with pain I finally decided to get the surgery I needed. Not only did I need shoulder surgery, but also clavicle, and bicep tendon repair. I feel so fortunate to have one of the best surgeons on the planet working on me!! He is also such a wonderful person, made me feel comfortable with what needed to be done and made me feel special!! I can not say enough about him and his team!!! I love them!!
As a former college athlete and weekend warrior I started experiencing pain and tightness under my right scapula region in late 2012. I saw two orthopedic surgeons close to home in California who didn’t know what was going on and sent me to physical therapy. After almost a full year of physical therapy and hopelessness I did some research and came across Dr. Millett and his experience in treating injuries and symptoms around the scapula region. I had exhausted all resources close to home and knew if I wanted to get down to the bottom of what was truly going on I needed to seek a consult from Dr. Millett. I booked an appointment in early 2014 and flew out to see Dr. Millett to get my life back. I saw him first thing in the morning and within minutes he knew what was going on and ordered an MRI, which I received that same day, to confirm his diagnosis. Sure enough he diagnosed me with snapping scapula syndrome as a result of a chronically inflamed bursa between my scapula and rib cage. Luckily he knew how to treat this and had a track record of successful surgeries. Before I left Colorado I booked surgery for the following week and came back to see him. Surgery went phenomenal and I can’t tell you how terrific the pre and post operative personnel were at the hospital and PT clinic. I stayed in Vail for a few days to do PT with Dr. Millett’s staff and to monitor the operative site. After that I flew home to rehab with a therapist close to home and within 3-4 months I was back doing the things I enjoy. Dr. Millett gave me a second chance at a healthy, active lifestyle and I couldn’t be more indebted to him. He is world class and I tell anyone near or far if you want to be treated by the best, don’t hesitate to travel to see the best even if you are an out of state patient like me. Thank you Dr. Millett.
