Jason M. Johnson, DO, FACS, FASMBS


Dr. Johnson was born in North Carolina, but raised in Broomfield, Colorado. He earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. He then earned his medical degree from the University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kansas City, Missouri. He went on to complete a general surgery residency at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System in Spartanburg, South Carolina followed by a laparoscopic and bariatric surgery fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.

Dr. Johnson’s original plan was to go into the Air Force and become a pilot. However, in high school, his mother, who was the director of medical staff at a local medical center at the time, gave Jason the opportunity to shadow a surgeon for a day. Ever since that day, he knew he wanted to go into the medical field.

“I believe in a holistic, patient-centered approach.” Dr. Johnson loves being able to help his patients get back to their daily routine in a relatively short amount of time.

While Dr. Johnson is trained in all areas of general surgery, his areas of clinical interest include:

  • Bariatric and weight loss surgery

  • Minimally invasive and robotic surgery

  • Surgical education

When he is not at work, Dr. Johnson enjoys spending time with his wife and their three children doing outdoor activities such as skiing and fly fishing, as well as going to baseball games to cheer on the Colorado Rockies.
