Greg Poulter MD - Spine Specialist
Greg Poulter, M.D. joined Vail • Summit Orthopaedics in the summer of 2008. Dr. Poulter completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Michigan and more recently, a fellowship in adult and pediatric spine surgery at the University of California San Francisco. He provides complete spine care for both children and adults, offering the most current minimally-invasive and fusion-sparing techniques.
Dr. Poulter says the active lifestyle of people living in the Colorado Mountains is part of what attracted him to the job. "People who love the outdoors are the best patients to take care of; they are truly vested in getting better so they can get right back out there doing whatever it is they like to do," Poulter said.
Vail • Summit Orthopaedics CEO Dr. Chip Webb said Dr. Poulter exemplifies his team's philosophy, which is to provide patients with a customized treatment plan tailored to their individual needs. "When possible, our first choice is always a non-operative treatment plan of physical therapy and medication," Dr. Webb said. "If surgery is necessary, however, we have a critical mass of surgeons who are among the most experienced in the country in their field. You don't have to go to Denver to find a spine specialist; we have the best there is to offer right here in Summit and Eagle counties."
Dr. Poulter is an avid hiker and skier and is excited that he can now call Colorado home.
