Eric Kjelgaard, D.O. USAP Bio

I am a board certified anesthesiologist with a focus and interest in regional anesthesia for orthopedic procedures.  However, I provide anesthesia for most types of surgical specialties.  Anesthesia for same day surgery is where I currently spend most of my time.

I was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota and have been in the Denver area since 2005.  My wife and two children keep me very busy outside of the operating room.  We enjoy all that Colorado has to offer including camping, hiking, seeing live music, and golf.  In my spare time I also enjoy homebrewing. 

Area of Clinical Interest

I enjoy taking care of same day surgery patients utilizing regional anesthesia to improve recovery and pain scores.
