Dr. Alex Sielatycki is a fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon. He specializes in both adult and pediatric spine surgery.

 

Dr Sielatycki received his premedical education at Utah State University where he completed his bachelor of science degree. He attended Penn State University College of Medicine for medical school and was recognized with the Outstanding Orthopedic Student, Outstanding Academic Achievement, and Outstanding Achievement in Basic Science Research awards.

Dr. Sielatycki continued his medical education at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, where he performed his orthopedic surgery residency. He completed his specialization at New York-Presbyterian Hospital / Columbia University in Manhattan, NY, where he completed a fellowship in adult and pediatric spine surgery. During his time in fellowship, he studied under expert surgeons in degenerative spine surgeries, cervical spine surgery, and scoliosis and spinal deformity. 

Dr. Sielatycki has continued his career dedicated to advancing research in spine, focusing on motion preservation techniques, and has been author on multiple publications and has presented at the leading international spine meetings. 

A few of the services he provides include lumbar and cervical spine care, spine motion preservation in the neck, cervical disk replacements, disk hernia repair, pinched nerve repair and cervical and lumbar stenosis procedures. Sielatycki’s specialty is in spinal motion preservation in the neck and lower back. He is currently engaged in research to bring about new technology that allows for 200 replacements in the low back.

“I see my role as a surgeon initially and primarily as one to educate patients about their problem and understand what it is that is causing their pain,” he said. “Every patient has different needs, expectations and different life circumstances. One patient might be more active and have more wear and tear on their body, whereas another might be more sedentary and not have as many demands on their body. My goal is to tailor my care to each specific person and what they expect out of their operation.”

A Utah native, Sielatycki moved to Northwest Colorado with his family: wife, Karen, and three children, Elizabeth, Anna and Caleb. He enjoys skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and spending as much time with his young family.
