Colorado shoulder specialist Peter Millett, M.D., M.Sc. has recently launched an updated version of his website DRMILLETT.COM developed by eMedical Media.

Dr. Millett and his team are dedicated to providing excellent care to all patients from active youth, pro athletes and weekend warriors, to active retirees.

And less common injuries including:
