Jason L. Dragoo, M.D.Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon

Sports Medicine Specialist

Jason L. Dragoo, MD, Professor and Vice Chair of Academic Affairs for the CU Department of Orthopedics, is an internationally known pioneer in the field of Biologics and Regenerative Medicine, as well as minimally invasive Sports Medicine procedures. He is the Endowed Chair of Regenerative Medicine and has developed many procedures designed to augment the healing of a patient’s own body. He strongly favors the use of autologous procedures (the use of the patient’s own tissue or cells for the procedure) versus allograft procedures (using tissue and cells from another human). Dr. Dragoo believes that joint restoration techniques, which add tissue back to a damaged joint, should be used whenever possible (e.g., cartilage and meniscal transplantation), rather than procedures that are designed to take tissue away (meniscal resection).

  • As a physician patient, I cannot speak more highly of Dr. Dragoo. He performed an intricate and complex surgery on my knee. I am incredibly grateful not only for his extraordinary surgical skill but also his remarkably thoughtful and caring manner. I travelled from California to Colorado specifically to see him, and it was well worth it. I know many very fine surgeons, but Dr. Dragoo is in a class by himself. Thank you. See all reviews
  • Dr. Dragoo is top notch. Clearly a man at the top of his skills and at the top of the field. Superb bedside manner and pragmatic, clearheaded approach. I’m 100% satisfied. See all reviews
