Sonja Stilp, MD

Dr. Sonja Stilp is a spine and sports medicine specialist who founded RISE, a revolutionary new orthopedic practice, offering expert spine and sports care without surgery. Dr. Stilp offers direct physician access and tailors treatment recommendations to the patient’s lifestyle and goals.

After completing her fellowship training at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Dr. Stilp joined an orthopedic practice in Aspen, Colorado. She jumped at the chance to move to Boulder because of her love for fitness training, such as pilates and yoga. Dr. Stilp also comes from a successful background in Category 1 bicycle racing. She is a strong advocate of using exercise to combat athletic and spine injuries.

Dr. Stilp’s philosophy of care is to treat the whole person. She believes in outlining a course of care that is beyond just medication and incorporates alternative or emerging care. Dr. Stilp believes in attempting to get at the root cause of injury, whether that be faulty biomechanics or something structural. She is excited to welcome new members into her practice at RISE.
