Meet the Doc – Dr. Christopher Joyce
Dr. Joyce was born and raised near Chicago, IL along with his two younger sisters and brother. He went to college at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in General Engineering. He was so lucky to meet his beautiful wife at a barn dance in college, and the two were married several years later. After college, Dr. Joyce moved to Columbus, OH to attend The Ohio State College of Medicine for his medical doctorate. Outside of the classroom during medical school he was the head coach of the local Special Olympics Swim Team and has always had a passion for assisting people with intellectual disabilities. Dr. Joyce then attended University of Colorado for his Orthopaedic Surgery residency, where he was named the Chief Resident of the Year as well as Denver Health Medical Center’s Top Individual Consultant. He then moved to the east coast for a year of specialty fellowship training in Shoulder & Elbow surgery and the prestigious Rothman Orthopaedic Institute at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA.
In his free time, Dr. Joyce loves to spend time with his wife and two daughters and dog, Hank. He is also excited to meet the newest member of the Joyce family in a few months as his wife is expecting a third girl soon. Dr. Joyce enjoys competing in triathlons and is a two-time Ironman finisher. He also enjoys running, hiking, rock climbing, and gardening in the summer as well as skiing in the winter months. Dr. Joyce is so happy to be back taking care of patients in Colorado.
