Our medical group has proudly served the Pikes Peak region for over 70 years!
Together Dr. Ben Kam and Dr. Sean Kelly are among the first orthopedic surgeons in the Pikes Peak Region to perform Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Knee replacement surgery.
Optum welcomed Dr. Kam to our orthopedic team in August 2016 and we were able to expand our access to orthopedic services with his addition. Dr. Kam comes to Optum with over 10 years’experience in sports medicine-focused orthopedic surgery. When he’s not busy seeing patients, Dr. Kam enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.
