Front Range Brain and Spine Physicians Relocate in Fort Collins

Banner Medical Group has entered into a professional services agreement with Fort Collins-based Front Range Center for Brain and Spine Surgery, P.C., effective July 1, 2022.

The medical practice includes:
• Dr. Timothy Wirt, neurosurgeon
• Dr. Donn Turner, neurosurgeon
• Dr. Douglas Beard, orthopedic surgeon

These long-time community physicians specialize in spine surgery and will move their clinic practice to Banner Health Center at Lady Moon Drive and an outreach clinic in Cheyenne, Wyoming. They will perform procedures at Banner Fort Collins Medical Center and Banner Surgery Centers. The group brings a developed and long-standing regional practice to Banner Health in Northern Colorado, primarily from southeastern Wyoming, southwestern Nebraska and Colorado. Drs. Beard, Turner and Wirt will not be employed by Banner Medical Group as part of the professional agreement.

Banner Medical Group physicians will continue to provide brain and spine surgical services in addition to the physicians with Front Range Center for Brain and Spine.


The three providers will retain their clinic phone number, 970-493-1292.
