About John A Reister


"I believe the most important thing is to take compassionate, appropriate care of my patients. I would rather have people understand that I would like to help people rather than that I trained well. Medicine is fun, because you can have relationships with people."

"It was great to serve as a military field surgeon before entering my residency at Fitzsimmons hospital. One can still feel a little altruism about serving our country."

Dr. John Reister completed his undergraduate studies at Towson State University in Baltimore, Maryland. He received his Doctor of Medicine degree from East Tennessee State University.

After completing his surgical internship at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center, he served a year as field surgeon before entering his orthopaedic residency at Fitzsimons.

After completing his residency, Dr. Reister went on to serve as a staff orthopaedic surgeon at Fort Hood, Texas and Associate Clinical Professor of Orthopaedics at Brooke Army Medical Center, before concluding an 11-year Army career.

He is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is also a member of Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honor Medical Society, the Colorado Medical Society, the Western Orthopaedic Association, and the Society of Military Orthopaedic Surgeons.
