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.
My experience on the shoulder surgery exceeded my expectations. I return to sports without any limitations!
Very thankful to Dr. Millett!
After 6 months of disappointing visits to numerous doctors in the Atlanta area, I was desperate for a doctor who could help me with a dislocated Sternoclavicular (SC) Joint injury. I searched the Internet and found Dr. Millett. I was hesitant at first, but my pain was unbearable, so I took a leap of faith and reached out for a remote consultation. Within a few weeks of sending my records, I received a call from Dr. Millett. He immediately impressed me with his patience as I conferenced my husband into the call. He reviewed his assessment of my situation and offered to have his surgical coordinator call me to schedule a face to face consultation and surgery. Amanda Rakow called me the very next day to schedule my consultation and surgery in Vail. Amanda and I immediately hit it off. She was so responsive to all of my questions, truly cared for me and my being comfortable with my decision to come to Vail for surgery. She is the Best! Dr. Millett and his team (Brian, Jason, Joe) were very professional and put me at ease during my consultation. Dr. Millett was very down to earth and explained my surgical options in terms that were easy to understand. My surgery consisted of Dr. Millett removing a tendon from my leg to reconstruct my SC joint. My surgery was at 8:30AM and throughout the day members of Dr. Millett’s team stopped in to check on me. Dr. Millett stopped by at 10:30PM before he left for the day. Even after a very long day, he displayed a very caring bedside manner and took time to insure that I was doing well. What a fabulous experience from start to finish!! It has been 5 months since my surgery and I am living pain free thanks to Dr. Millett and his team!
