Mack Clayton, M.D.

 
 

Dr. Clayton was an orthopedic surgeon who moved to Denver in 1952. His love for skiing led to him studying sports medicine and the prevention and treatment of injury. His research on “Experimental Investigations of Ligamentous Healing” observed how injured ligaments heal with or without surgical treatment and has led to the modern treatment of many ACL ski injuries. In the 1960s, he served as the doctor for two NCAA Championships in Steamboat Springs.
