He is also an avid blues/jazz piano and guitar player with a particular interest in caring for musicians. In addition to blues music, he is a Blues hockey fan and plays on several adult hockey teams. Dr. Rovak has always had a fascination with aviation. He earned his private pilot license and his commercial license in 2020. He has an instrument rating and is working toward an instructor rating.

“I am a Denver based hand surgeon with a number of interests outside of medicine. I have been playing piano and guitar since childhood with a focus on blues/jazz/improvisational music.  As an adult I became interested in 3D graphics and started a business creating both medical and non-medical graphics, logos, and animations.  My lifetime obsession with aviation led me to get a pilots license in 2016. I now have both instrument and commercial ratings, and am working toward my flight instructor rating. I began playing hockey as an adult and play on multiple recreational teams.

My wife, Erin, and I have been married since 2002. We have 4 children, and an ill behaved Alaskan Malamute.”
