Four new providers joined the UCHealth team in northern Colorado in September.

Dr. Sunil S. Jani has joined the team of providers at UCHealth Longmont Clinic, 1925 W. Mountain View Ave.

Dr. Sunil S. Jani

He specializes in orthopedic surgery and strives to get patients back to enjoying healthy and active lives as quickly as possible.

“As an orthopedic surgeon, I get to work with passionate patients that include athletes of all ages, performers, artists, weekend-warriors, working professionals and seniors. It is extremely rewarding to learn about each of my patient’s issues and goals and then to join them in formulating a plan to help them move past their pain and regain their function,” he said. “Sometimes my patients need to get back to their world tour. Sometimes they need to get back to their walks in the park. Whatever the goal, I recognize the importance, and it is a privilege to help the patient achieve it.”

Jani’s clinical interests include sports medicine, knee disorders, shoulder and elbow issues, cartilage restoration, joint preservation, joint replacements and orthopedic trauma.

He earned a medical degree from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and a fellowship in orthopedic sports medicine at Taos Orthopaedic Institute in Taos, N.M.
