Dr. Peter J. Millett is an orthopedic shoulder surgeon and sports medicine specialist consistently selected by his peers as one of the “Best Doctors in America.“   He is known for treating sports-related injuries, especially those involving the shoulders, knees and elbows.  Dr. Millett is the director of the shoulder program at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO and is considered one of the country's leading experts on shoulder problems and repair.  He uses advanced open and arthroscopic surgery to restore damaged joints, ligaments, and bones, and is also an expert in complex and revision shoulder surgery.  He is the pioneer behind the CAM procedure which offers a very precise combination of surgical procedures that is aimed at treating all of the major pain generators in the shoulder. It has clinically been shown to decrease pain and improve function and can be performed in young, active patients with arthritis who wish to preserve their shoulder joints or in older patients who wish to avoid joint replacement surgery.
