Provider Bio

Dr. James Rector has been a board-certified orthopedic surgeon for over 30 years. As a physician and team doctor, Dr. Rector has a special interest in arthroscopic knee surgery, and he has extensive training and experience in total hip and total knee replacement surgery. Dr. Rector is one of the first surgeons in the United States to perform state-of-the-art hip resurfacing, and he was the first surgeon to perform BIRMINGHAM HIP Resurfacing (BHR) in Colorado.

Although hip resurfacing has been part of mainstream European orthopedics for a decade, the FDA granted the U.S. approval to BHR in May 2006. One of a limited number of U.S. surgeons to be trained and certified in this procedure, Dr. Rector has performed more than 900 hip resurfacing arthroplasties since June 2006. He also has extensive experience with other forms of total hip replacement, including ceramic-on-ceramic and metal-on-metal bearing surfaces.

Dr. Rector was chosen for membership in the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, an organization of more than 1,200 board-certified or board-eligible orthopedic surgeons in the United States and Canada who devote at least 50 percent of their practice to hip and knee arthroplasty. The association was established in 1991 to provide leadership in advocacy, education, and research to achieve excellence in hip and knee patient care.

Dedicated to actively learning the newest procedures and techniques as well as continuing his education, Dr. Rector elected to undergo additional training to become certified to perform Mako® robotic-arm assisted surgery for hip replacement.
