SHS welcomes Orthopedic Surgeon Braden Jones, MD to Specialty Care Team

Orthopedic Surgeon Braden Jones, MD joins SHS Practice

Dr. Braden Jones joins Southwest Health System with extensive and diverse orthopedic surgery experience.

Previously, he was in private practice in Evansville, Indiana, before deciding to relocate to Southwestern Colorado to take advantage of the amazing outdoor opportunities. He performs partial and total knee replacement, minimally invasive hip replacement, total shoulder and reverse total shoulder replacement, as well as adult and pediatric fracture care of the upper and lower extremities. He is also trained in the latest minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques for shoulder and knee surgeries. He graduated with his Doctor of Medicine from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine and completed his residency at the University of Florida Health.

Dr. Jones and his wife Courtney have three young children and are looking forward to enjoying the Colorado outdoors while hiking, biking and skiing. A native of Illinois, Dr. Jones played football at Southern Illinois University and professional football for the Minnesota Vikings before moving on to a career in medicine.

“We are thrilled to add Dr. Jones to our orthopedic staff. Having an additional, skilled orthopedic surgeon to partner with Dr. Bagge gives us the ability to provide 24/7 coverage for our orthopedic patients which has not been available at SHS for many years,” said SHS CEO Tony Sudduth.
