Vail, Colorado is home to The Steadman Clinic & Steadman Philippon Research Institute. It is one of the foremost sports medicine and orthopaedic surgery centers in the country. The surgeons at The Steadman Clinic use cutting-edge techniques to treat elite athletes from all over the world. You might have heard of a few of them…Joe Montana, John Elway, Bode Miller, Picabo Street, Kobe Bryant, Greg Norman, Martina Navratilova, and Alex Rodriguez. Fortunately, The Steadman Clinic also treats regular folks like you and me. Several of our staff members have had successful ankle, wrist, shoulder and knee surgeries there.
Many patients have started traveling to Vail during the shoulder seasons (fall or spring) for procedures at The Steadman Clinic and rehabilitation at Howard Head Sports Medicine. Why? The hospital isn’t as busy, town is quieter and there is more lodging availability and lower lodging prices.
Why Stay at Lodge at Lionshead?
We’ve accommodated numerous Steadman Clinic patients over the years. Our property is less than 200 yards to the Vail Health Hospital and has nicely appointed, spacious condos with all of the comforts of home. We work with each guest to find the condo that will work best for them. Guest requests have included quiet location in the building, elevator access, walk-in shower, washer/dryer, nice views and specific bedding arrangements. Recovery time after surgery means going back and forth to physical therapy at the hospital and a lot of downtime in the condo. We want to make it as easy and comfortable as possible. The world-class service doesn’t stop at The Steadman Clinic.
If you are coming to The Steadman Clinic for a procedure, we’re happy to assist you with any pre-planning you may have. The next time you or a family member are in need of the best care for a sports injury look no further than Vail Health, The Steadman Clinic and Lodge at Lionshead.
